La Humildad

What a week... what a DAY! Wow. Once again, I don´t have a ton of time. Sorry! Today was really crazy. We went to Sacsayhuaman early in the morning with the other sister missionaries... super fun, and super tired, but mostly super fun! After we came back, changed, and headed of to write our families, we ran into Brian (pensionista´s son) in a bit of a panic. He told us that Marisol, a woman who got married and then baptized last Friday from the other ward... her daughter just died in a car accident. Her daughter was 7 years old and her dad planned on baptizing her next year. Ah my heart dropped! So today, Yomira has been running around helping her and the family. Marisol and William (the parents) are in shambles right now. We went to the stake president to find someone to give them a blessing and he got right on it! Within 10 minutes, we met two men from the stake in white shirts and ties at the hospital ready to give them blessings of comfort. We have been helping take care of her other baby (2 years) today. It is a very humbling thing to experience. I can´t even imagine how the parents are feeling. I talked to the Dad for a minute, explaining that the brothers were going to give him a priesthood blessing that would help him have more peace and calmness right now. He told me that he feels peace and he knows that his daughter is safe... He just hurts. I am grateful that they are in the church and have the support of members and most importantly the knowledge that they will see their little Daniella again. They are an amazing family! I know they will be guided and protected by the Lord.

I am excited to talk to you all this Sunday!  Love you all and excited to talk to you! Happy Mother´s Day Mom! Love you lots and talk to you soon :)
