More than eggs and a bunny

Sometimes old ladies we contact don´t want to talk to us because they´re making lunch, but give us some really yummy cake. We´re not complaining!

And then sometimes people yell at you about how there aren´t prophets and say that they wont talk to us because they believe in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost ¨us too...¨ So we buy coke. 

 Oh Boliva. Gad is faithfull.

For our activity last week we made cuñape and I found a kitten and Hermana Petroff came back to Santa Cruz 

how to make cuñape! It has a bucket load of cheese that you have to mound and then roll into balls!

more pics with the hermanas when we made cuñape and ate a Pizza Eli´s interminable pizza, which we ate regularly in Tarija!

Family, friends, and fellow cat lovers,

We are finding a ton of new people to teach. We have been using these pass along cards of colors that have questions. We let the person in the street, park, or wherever thay are choose their color. For example, pink says how can I find peace and happiness? Green, how can I learn from my trials? Light blue, how can I have a happy marriage? And we shared one with a random guy named Marcelo. Then he asked if we could come over to read the Bible in English. We said yes, but never brought my English Bible. Sorry! But he´s very interested and asked about tithing, the bishop, how Christ came to the America´s, everything! He came to church yesterday and we were happy to see him. Now we just have to find a way to teach his whole family! This is just one of the many, many miracles we are seeing here.

This week is Easter! It´s interesting to see all of the Catholic traditions. I never understood much about how Easter is more than eggs and a bunny. But it´s about Jesus Christ. Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, ¨Because of the sacrifice of our beloved Redeemer, death has no sting, the grave has no victory, Satan has no last power, and we are begotten again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.¨ There are not words to describe my gratitude to my Heavenly Father for letting his only begotten Son, come to Earth and die for me, so I can live again. I have come to understand more about the word Savior. I found this poem I like:

¨Jesus will save you
just as you are;
Jesus will welcome you
back from afar;
Jesus will heal
sin´s pitiful scar:
Just as you are 
come home.¨
-John Runyon

I am so grateful to be preaching His gospel in Trompillo. I hope everyone remembers Christ this week and that all of the women reading this enjoy the women´s session of conference! Come unto Christ.

Love, Hermana Park
