This week has been a challenge (like every other week, haha!) But this week we battled so much about being exactly obedient. It was what we were working on as a zone these past few weeks. And you know what? It was haaaaard. Not because I'm naturally a rebellious kid (you can ask my mom about that, but shed probably say that I am haha!). But when we made a goal to be exactly obedient, Satan has been throwing us some challenges to face. Like we are needed in an activity in church but it ends pretty late so we had to leave early so we can get home in time or the members were watching harmless church movies (like the best two years) and they wanted to watch with us or even worse, the neighborhood has been blasting songs "del mundo" like Bon Jovi, High School Musical, FALL OUT BOY and we cant sing these songs. Small things, right? But it affects a lot in the field. I like what one of our leaders told us about obedience. "We receive blessings as long as we are obedient. But we see miracles when we are exactly obedient." Its really true. Just like what it says in D&C 130:21 "And when we obtain any blessings from God, it is by obedience to that law up on which it is predicated." And when we are obedient, God is obligated to bless us (D&C 82:10). Imagine when we are exactly obedient. Miracles can happen.
I also learned the power of priesthood blessing this week. I wasn't taking good care of my health because of stress and just the heat of Santiago del Estero- which can reach up to 130F. My body just collapsed and was like, "Nope. Bye Hermana Garcia. You're not going to make it today!" Vertigo happened, dehydration happened, low blood pressure happened, just the whole meal. But I am so grateful because all the members here are so loving and helped my compañera and I go through everything. They gave us food, sent us hugs, called their family who worked in the hospital so that I didn't have to wait very long in the hospital. They called specialist to help me with my vertigo. The priesthood holders gave me a blessing. I just feel so blessed. Heavenly Father blessed me so much. Blessed me to have such a loving family here in my area. I am going to cry like a baby in two weeks. I dont like transfers! hahaha All is well right now. Don't worry. I am well taken care of :)
With all the love that I can give,
A healthy Hermana Garcia
