El Oracion de Fe‏

Recently I have been trying to translate frases from english. lets just say some of them work but most of them dont. the great thing is that my companion loves laughing at them when I say them haha. I like to say "it never hurts to ask". nunca duele a preguntar...but more than that she just nods and laughs so thats a good sign i guess. haha. also you would be surprised but people get really confused when i say it is raining cats and dogs. it is hilarious. i cant imagine how people from sur america react when a someone from the US says it for the first time..
I like starting out with something random for the week keeps me sane. haha. Anyways this last week I have been doing a lot of pondering. Sometimes I think what am I doing wrong or why isnt this person progressing or how can i improve with all of this. More than that I have found that what I need to do is help people to strengthen there testimonies that is the principle.For example this last sunday my companion and I taught relief society on the testimony. It was funny because I got up to teach and my companion just sat there and I was like where is your support haha. Lets just say I am not a big fan of teaching relief society, but I learned a lot. A testimony is something that we testify. something that we share that we know is true. something that we share that we believe is true. one thing that is amazing about a testimony is it is the key to becoming a member of the church. or the key for us desire to change and follow God.  The only thing is that it is such a personal thing that as missionaries we are like How can we help these people to have testimonies? Lets just say I havent found the answer, but every day I am looking and I think the best thing we can do is help others to keep their commitments and feel the Holy Ghost. But I am always open to suggestions to find this answer if you all could help me out a little more that would be great. haha. But as I was sitting there I decided to open up the Liahona of October and read the presidency message. it is amazing and I love it. You should all read it, but I will share a little bit that I learned. it says," the investigator who reads the Book of Mormon before being baptized and confirmed may receive both an assurance that the book is true and a witness that Joseph Smith translated it by the power of God....We can have the Holy Ghost as our companion to confirm other truths. Then, whenever we PRAY IN FAITH, we can expect that the Holy Ghost will testify to us that Jesus is the Christ, the God the Father lives, and that THey love us and all of Heavenly Father's Children." I think this is the same with general conference too. if we listen and learn from those things that the Prophet and his apostles, and the general authorities have prepared for us we can grow and learn so much in our future.  I feel this spirit and confirmation whenever I share my testimony and all of you can too!
I love this gospel, I love my Savior and I am so grateful for all that he has done for me.  May God bless you all. 
Y tienen una buen semana, por favor,
amor de Quito,
Hermana Dunkley
