To the Rescue!

Querida Familia,

Great to hear from yall!! It has been a great week!! We were able to see so many miracles-the Hand of the Lord really is in this work! 

We were teaching Leandro this week, and it was so incredible---he told us how he finally prayed to know if the book of mormon is true, and he felt something change in him! As he said that I felt goose bumps. He still have lots of doubts, but I know he has felt the Spirit and Im excited to keep working with him! Also, Eva is doing really well, preparing for her baptism in 2 weeks! She wanted to be the one to set the date, not us, and March 1st it was. She is excited and already inviting her friends. :) 
Most exciting moment of the week, we were able to rescue katty!!!!!! :) Rescuing someone means we teach someone who is inactive all the 5 lessons, they attend church twice, and are interviewed. No one else knows, but we do and it made us so happy! Its the same process for a baptism. Katty just makes me so happy. She is 21, her enthusiasm for the gospel is incredible. She has earnestly sought her answers, and the Lord has given them to her. She is excited to keep participating in te church as a reconverted latter day saint! This work is incredible and Im so glad to be a part of it! :)
This week we were finally about to find Roger and Miselli again! (Diosnel and Tempora went to Tumbes)... As we were teaching them, hna gozan and I pulled out the pamphlet for the word of wisdom at the exact same time! We didnt have it planned or anything. I think this is what it means to be one, and to have unity with your companion! Being in tune with the spirit and being able to know what our investigators need. 
This week one mronigng we hicked up the hill Ñañanica, the members we went with call it ¨monte del Señor¨. There is a huge cross up there, and it is such a pretty view of Chulucanas! And they all wanted me to do gymnastics of course. I was able to whip out a round off back hand back hand. Havent done that in months! Only a little sore still..haha
We got a new district leader, Elder Holms from South Jordan Utah. He is such a  hard worker and our distirict meeting was wow, so great! It got Hermana Gozan and I pumped up so much to get to work work work! AND he gave us oreos. It was a good meeting! :) 
Every third sunday here the missionaries speak. I spoke about the atonement of Chirst, and how the more we understand it, and apply it, the more we will want to share it. Im so thankful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. He is our rescuer. He is who will lift us up when we fall, and give us strength when we are weak. Im thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, and as I live it I can feel the power of the atonement in my life. This makes me want to shout with a peruvian flute to the world how incredible and imporatnat our message is! But talking to people sitting out side from door to door will have to do for now. :)
Found this quote this week and kind of like it- Äs we act in faith, our blessings will be much different than we expect, but much greater than we can imagine.¨-Elder Anderson.
There are so many blessings waiting for us! We just need to be obedient and we will receive them.
Love yall to Perú and back!
Love,
Hermana Garlick
