The Fact Is….

A week full of facts! Well, they are probably facts with a tid bit of opinion and comments. Haha!

5 facts about this week…

-My teaching has improved SOOO much! YAYAYAYAY! It takes so much faith and relying on the Lord! The gifts of tongues is real and if I listen to the spirit that is all that matters

-Realizing agency is so important. The power to choose. It is all a part of the plan. It is a gift that is given to all of us. It is hard for me to see those that push away the gospel or don’t accept our message. It breaks my heart. But everyone has agency.

-Communication is KEY in everything. In my companionship, in working with the members, in teaching our converts, with our investigators, and the most important with the Lord. Daily prayers. They are SO powerful.

-We found a little store called BEMBOS!!!!! ICE CREEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAMMMMMMM! And it is soft serve!! It is my favorite part of p-day!

-I have to work hard on a mission. But I have to work effectively. If I have the spirit, I can teach with the spirit, and if I teach with the spirit, I can touch hearts, and if I touch hearts it makes me so happy.

5 facts about the Peru Cusco Mission

- Our focus is to find families. We have a goal of contacting 12 families a week. It is the council from our president and I have definitely experienced miracles following his council.

-Unlike other missions in Peru our mission has so much diversity. We have the jungle/rainforest, snow in Puno, to Cusco which is SOOO high (altitude). We also have so much history. The Incans and of course Maccu Piccu. LOVE IT!!!

-Transportation in our mission is really different. We walk all the time in our sectors but when we have to go to the mission home it is a whole day experience. Going to Cusco is 7 hours from here and the longest trip is 10 hours from Puerto Maldonado.

-We cannot eat strawberries, lettuce, cervice, and eat pork.

-Our motto in the mission is “Faith, Obedience, Diligence, Charity.”

5 facts about Missionary Work

-It is the happiest and one of the hardest times in your life

-Constant change, but not all at the same time. Changes with companions, a new area, or new people can happen in the snap of a finger but yet each day is the same schedule doing the same things. Depending on the day it is easy or hard.

-You get up at 6:30 EVERY DAY! This I love. It is not like 5 o clock clinicals in nursing school and I am guaranteed 8 hours of sleep! I am so worn out emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally. So blessed to have so much sleep!

-You get as much out of it as you put in. Just like in anything. But I find as I am focused on why I am here and the purpose of missionary work I am SOOO happy.

-You meet SOOOO many people. I LOVE THIS! I am such a people person and talking with them about their life is great. I love to share the gospel to. So win-win situation.

5 facts about Hermana Frame on a mission…

-I LOVE EVERY BIT OF IT!!! The people, the leaders, my companion, the schedule, the place, the smells.. Okay maybe not the smells most of the time but still

-I do miss AMERICA!!! We sang the national anthem this week as a companionship. It was great, but it did make me miss my homeland.

-Talking about the gospel 24/7! I love it!

-I am a literal giant here with how tall I am! Goodness me. It is great but I am constantly looking down at them. It is so funny!

-My testimony has been stretched, strengthened, tested, and solidified here on the mission.

To end I want to share a scripture. I love it so much. “… Consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.”  I totally can’t remember the reference but it is so good! HAHA! I promise I didn’t come up with it myself. I just didn’t write it down. Well, I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the pictures of us at the zoo and the random dog our recent convert Wendy had during one of our lessons (super awkward pics… something to make you laugh). Anyways, love you all! Keep moving forward.
