Zoe Visits Christopher Colombus'...House

Hola a todos! Today I have photos!!  We went to El Conde today as an activity. Our District got special permission to go to the East Mission to check out this fun touristy historical/shopping street:)

The picture of all of us is in front of the house of Christopher Columbus!

This past Thursday I had the WONDERFUL opportunity to do companion exchanges and go back to Quisqueya- my first area. It was soooo great!!!! I got to see 2 of my converts, Rosie and Ashley, and after one year they are still going strong! At the end of the day we had an activity and I got to see a lot of members from the ward and they were all happy to see me and I was so happy to see them. What a blessing!

Also let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time I felt like I was in the movie ¨the best two years¨. My compa and I got home the other night and the other girls we´re like ¨guess what happened!!¨ They then told us of their night..

President Nuckols was at our chapel to give and interview for the Elders. As he was leaving he ran into the other Hermanas who were walking to our appartment for the night. He asked them if they lived closed and when they answered yes he asked if he could see the appartment. They confidently said ¨of course!¨ even though they were trying to remember of what type of condition our house was in.

President Nuckols, and 2 Elders came in and the Elders jaws dropped at how clean our apartment was and President was please too:) Yea for us having a clean house! It´s usually clean, but it was particularly clean this day. All the dishes done, desks clean, shelves organized, all four of our beds made. Practically spotless  

I was pleased to hear of our great surpise and that our house was fit to greet some suprise guests. Which reminds me of a wonderful quotation that I love:

¨Your room can be a holy place that invites the Spirit. If the prophet were to see your room, would he view it as a holy place? Do you?¨ -President Elaine S. Dalton

Hasta Luego!
