Broken Foot!

Hey team, so this week was an interesting one, that's for sure. First of all, I low key broke my foot and I am sitting here typing with a bright blue cast on my foot up to my knee. Some of you are probably thinking *or laughing to yourself because this is a typical jazzie move* "How did this girl break her foot, AGAIN? and in Honduras"Well...I wish that I had a cool story that I was running down the mountains in the jungle, and a giant dog bit my leg or something...but nope. The truth is that I was just walking and singing down a hill, my foot got trapped and I fell right down. My whole district was arround me and I was singing, crying, screaming and laughing at the same time. Some elders got it on film, so stay tuned for the movie.
The important thing to know is that I'm still alive. Im on bed rest for the week and ohhh so bored. So if we're friends, there's a high chance that you might get a letter from me in the next month haha. I have read half of the New Testament and my goal is to finish it this week. Added prayers and love would be much appreciated though. I need Team Woods to help me get through this one.
But I was thinking this week, because I've had a lot of time to do such a thing but the scripture came into my mind. I know that I have to learn something and my cute comp as well, but we can get through this!

"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." Ether 12:27

Oh my gosh, how could I forget...we had a baptism yesterday!! I had to bed for permission to leave my house (I seriously feel like Rapunzel trapped in her tower....just with the detail that my hairis not 1000 feet long, but a girl can dream) anyway I made it down my flight of 50 stairs in the rain..that was quite the adventure, but I made it into a car and off we went. His name is Carlos, he is my other bestfriend! And casually him and Enrique are both great friends, i love that!
Well, I gotta run. Not really.....I gotta lay down and rest til I feel better haha but I love you all. Thanks for the support and please send hugs and loves this way so I can get better and get back to work. Until next week my friends!

Hermana Arango from Panama

Oct 6, 2013

hey team! How's it goin? This week seriously flew by I really don't even know what to say. First of all, I just love my little comp, she is so precious! I sent a pic of her, Hermana Arango from panama. We are such a great team and I am so happy to have the opportunity to train her. Really, she's been teaching me a lot, so it's great!

So we all loved conference didn't we? I think it was the 2nd time that I didnt fall asleep the whole time..cause I wasn't home in my Pjs watching it, we were at the stake center. it was sweet though because I watched half of it in Spanish and actually understood it! That was a miracle. I really felt the spirit so strongly and the love and support that I have from everyone. This really is the Church of our Heavenly Father and I seriously want to shout it from the mountaintops! Which I totally could do because I still live in the mountains...haha

So carlos didnt get baptized this week because he had to work on Sunday, but that's okay. It's all in the Lord's timing, right? Right. Thats one thing that Ive really learned here. We need to do everything we can, but everything will happen in the way that God wants. 

Okay, the ciber is closing so I gotta run, this week was great! The church is still so true and I love being a missionary :) Thanks for all the support, love you all!!

Workin Livin Teachin Preachin

Sept 29, 2014

Hey team, hows it goin?? This week was a good one, and it went by so fast I don't really remember what went on! We are just workin, livin, teachin and preachin as missionaries do. I love being a misisonary and I love my cute little comp, she is literally 1/3 the size of me, but she's got a big heart and is already such a great missionary. Shes also sooo funny, so we make a good team. We decided to just be super bold when we teach so we don't waste any time and we teach with power and authority. Its fun! 

So this past Monday we had a sleepover with all of the hermanas that are here in the city, it was so much fun! We ate Cafe Rio chicken and learned all about motherhood and it was just the best. I wore my super man onsie and that was a hit! everyone was yelling superrrrrhermana!!! haha but my camera died so you'll have to wait for pics until next week :( I know that everyone thinks that their missions are the best, but I really think that this one is the best! 

We were with Enrique the other night and it started to rain, but we had to run to a meeting at the church...Enrique said a prayer to close that it wouldnt rain and that we wouldnt get wet at all...and it worked!!! It seriously stopped raining the second we left his house, til we walked into the church. That guy is the perfect example of faith, it was sweet! 

We have another baptism this week :) His name is Carlos and he's another Senor. He was golden and so ready for baptism and to change before we even taked to him. He is so excited and will be baptized inbetween conference sessions. So remember, to watch General Conference! And note to my family...stay awake because its not just a time to take naps ;) haha jk if i was home I would def be in my Pjs watching and napping...but conference here is like Christmas so we are so pumped!

Gotta run, we're out of money and cant afford more minutes on the computer haha  thats the mission life. Love you!
Be happy. Be fletch 

love, Hermana Woods
