Contacting on the combis

Helloooo cute family and friends,
I really hope all are found well this week. We had a fantastic week because well, we are missionaries. We have had so many blessings, and I would love to tell just one that happened to us this week.
Soo, one mission goal is to schedule appointments of 10 new people every day. It is sometimes really hard to do that, but to he to has faith, anything is possible... But to help us complete with the task every day we usually contact every single person on public transports. I remember that my mom and dad went to Tijuana before I left on my mission as they came home they told me that they had gotten into a big van and it scared them.. 

I think that is they best way to discribe combis. They are basically huge vans that tons of people get into to go short distances. We usually hand out cards about Christ, and then talk a little bit about our message and then we ask them if we can visit them. 

We had contacted a young family last week and we went to the appointment on Saturday evening. We spoke about the Preisthood and the Book of Mormon, when they showed us a copy that a family had given to them years earlier. It was amazing to see their faces as they understood in part what the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is. They accepted the invitation to be baptized on March 13, and I am so happy to have been able to be an instrument in the hands of The Lord so many times. 

I have a personal testimony of the scripture found in D&C 24:12 that if we open our mouthes in ever moment, we will be blessed with the words and The Spirit.
The best decision that I have made is coming on a Mission!! It is the best, and I know that we recieve so many blessings as we loose ourselves in the service of others.
Be well, 
Hermana Beardall
