Week #52 - 10 Questions

haha me being a princess.
Knowing that Hannah's ONE YEAR date was coming this week (Thursday, July 30th to be exact), I asked her to answer 10 questions about her mission if possible.  (Thanks to someone on "Missionary Mommas" for the idea!)  Since she answered these questions for me, she didn't have time to write her "weekly email", but I think this will be just as fun.  ENJOY!

1. Favorite scripture from mission so far.

From the bible: 
Luke 1:37 
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

From the BOM:
And if men come unto me will show unto them their weaknessgive 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 make weak things become strong unto them.

Some of the most applicable things in the world! They have helped me a lot on my mission so far!

2. Favorite place you lived.

Apartment: Puerto Rico, Argentina

Area: Ciudad del Este, Paraguay

3. Most fun companion
 I have fun with ALL of my companions equally...! but I did have a lot of fun with my sister Karina Gonzalez from Nicaragua! I miss her dearly!

4. Investigator you remember the most and why

I really miss all of my sweet little kids from Puerto Rico. There names are Ruth, Octavio, and Darian. i still think about them EVERY day and i miss them so much! 

5. Favorite thing to eat.
My favorite thing to eat are empanadas.

this is not my favorite food of paraguay but they eat it like bread.
 it is called mandioka and you will see this at EVERY meal

6. On a scale of 1-10 how good is your Spanish?

 I cannot rate my Spanish! My companion says "excelente" but, I can understand the people and they can understand me, which is the most important thing! haha

7. Have you read the entire BOM? If so, how many times so far on your mission?

 I have read the BOM almost 3 times! its my favorite book!

8. How many times have you had to talk in sacrament meeting? Or teach a lesson in church?

 I have spoken 8 times in sacrament (I spoke yesterday for 15 minutes.... this time last year I did not think that was possible...) and I have taught more than 10 times in church. 

9. What is something you have learned about yourself while on a mission?
Something I have learned about myself on the mission is that I can do hard things. I was talking about this with president in my latest interview and he said, hna Murphy, how do you feel? You have done something really hard. and I told him that I thought about the phrase my mom always says, "I can do hard things" BUT how it has changed on my mission to: I can do hard things with Christ. So the thing that I have learned is that I can do hard things, but only with the help of my best friend, Jesus Christ. 

10. Can you give us a piece of your testimony? In Spanish if possible.

Yo se que Jesucristo vive y que el es nuestro Salvador. se que si necesitamos su ayuda divina, Él está dispuesto a ayudarnos. se que Dios es nuestro padre y Èl tiene un plan para nosotros.  El Libro de Mormón nos ayuda a ser mejores y seguir mas a Cristo. Ellos nos aman y nos protegen si hagamos lo que Ellos quieran. Este es la iglesia de Jesucristo.

Google Translate:
I know that Jesus Christ lives and that is our Savior . It is that if we need divine help, He is willing to help . I am that God is our Father and He has a plan for us. The Book of Mormon helps us to be better and more to follow Christ. They love us and protect us if we do what they want. This is the church of Jesus Christ.

P.S.  Hannah informed me in her email today that Thursday, July 30th (her one year mark) was considered the "Day of Friendship" as declared by the United Nations.  It is to signify how friendships play a part in promoting peace in many cultures.  She thought that was a PERFECT way to celebrate her ONE YEAR mark in Paraguay!
