November 6th, 2008: Happy Holiday Season

Hola Familia y Amigos,
Muchas Gracias for the emails from Dad, Mom, and Nikki. And another Muchas Gracias for the two envelopes from Dad and Mom. I am so grateful for the love and support you all give. My district is amazed with you. I got the one envelope with the cd today and so I will listen to it tonight. Thanks. Thanks for the letters-emails in it. I am grateful for the chocolate but I think it may be getting to warm for it. It is kind of melted. But it is okay, I still eat it. My health is good so I can keep working. So I heard about the election from some of the cooks here and I felt really bad for you and for me. I wish I had done my part and voted just to show support. I am glad the propisition 8 passed there are silver linings. Hna Orme showed me a scripture in Helaman that day that told about the people turning away from God and putting in bad men as leaders and corrupting there governments. Very applicable. I am amazed everyday at the book of mormon and how it applies to everything about us. It is so neat. I am really learning to love the scriptures. I am grateful that we have the gospel and that no DUMB president can ever take it away.
On a positive note, Hna Orme, Hna Yeates and me had some great experiences proselyting saturday. I really enjoy doing it, even though it gets pretty hot and humid and my feet hurt. It is worth it. I hope I still feel that way when I do it everyday all day. We were able to place 5 books of mormons to people that seemed really interested and sincere in there desire. We gave like ten pamphlets and were able to get 7 names and contact info for the missionaries. It was so awesome. It was neat to have people understand our poor spanish and be able to still feel the importance and joy in our message. The spirit is amazing. We went to the same are as last week Vicente Lopz which is by the coast. Our area touched the coast. It is a more well to do area. We went all day saturday well from 9 to 4 and it was a busy enough area that we didn{t have to clap a single door (they do that instead of knock). The best people we talk to and are golden we joke and cannot run away from us are security guards, men that the neighborhoods pay to sit in a box about the size of 2 telephone booths and protect them. Basically they sit all day and do nothing. They are not from the area and are usually from the lower class of people kind of less to do. But pretty much all we have talked to minus a few are really nice and humble and listen to us. We were able to get 3 references and hand out two bom to them. One man Raul was so neat and he loved our message and when were were done he said that he really felt something. It was neat beacuse that discussion was really united and we all participated. The spirit is amazing, again. There are also a lot of workers in the area and we talked to man named hector with his two sons were with him about 9 and 10 and he stopped his work to listen. He was really humble and let us talk for like 15 minutes. He was interested. I had candy in pack because was a long day and i gave the boys packages of skittles which they really liked and made them less restless and kind of listen a little bit. They liked us. My favorite experience was about a girl Frede we met last week who was amazing and she was a maid who stopped to talk to us and she told us her brother had a book of mormon in paraguay and that she knew about us but not really anything. So we gave her a bom and challenged her to read it. The following week we gave the contact infos to the missionaries and we had lost her number and I felt so bad. I hoped we would go to the same area and if we did I prayed we could find her because she had a neat spirit. I prayed friday and saturday to find her and saturday around 11 she was one her way to work and we found her and she gave her number and told the bom was beautfiul and she liked it. It was amazing. Prayers are answered. I love sharing this message with people. Thanks for your prayers of support and words and love. I appreciate it so much. I love you all.
con amor, Tiffani
p.s. I will write questions and comments to letter to you all this week. I love you. thanks for the stamps.

Dear Sister Mohrman,
I'm not getting this blogging thing very well. I just typed a nice letter and it would not accept my password. It said it was incorrect. I'm writing it down this time.
It sounds like you are doing well and being blessed. I have been pretty busy with my new calling. IT is way out of my comfort zone. I am a counselor in the Primary presidency. I have never done anything like that before. They released me from the Young Women's and I have been missing them all. I loved that calling. Of all the callings I've been given that was my favorite.
I did my first sharing time today and I think it went pretty well. I'm not sure how to keep sunbeams from disrupting. They tell me that its impossible. I think next week I'll do some more active games.
We pray for you and know that the Lord is watching out for you and blessing your efforts to serve.
YOur a wonderful girl. We love you.
Aunt Charlene
