Another week has come and gone, and we are still working so hard. We had a ward activity planned by us missionaries. It was called a "noche de hogar" which is translated as "family home evening" in English, which, for those of you who might not know is like family night. It's something we like to do in the church once a week as families. We get together as a family and have a lesson and play games. So, since our ward (another name for the congregation of our church) is like our family, we planned it as a way to unite our ward. In the end, it was a great success. We didn't have as many people as we would have liked, but numbers don't determine success. We had two less active families come which was super great!
Another awesome thing that happened this week was we visited a recently baptized member who is struggling a little bit. Well, he is back to drinking coffee (which we, as members of the church don't drink), so we decided to help him with that because he wants to stop. Anyway, my companion and I started brainstorming, and I was like, well, the first thing he needs to do is get rid of the stuff to make coffee. So, we turned to him and we are like, will you give us all of your coffee stuff? He looked at us like, what? But then he was like, sure! So, he put his coffee and coffee maker thing, put it in a bag, and gave it to us. People, blessings come when you keep the commandments :)
We also had a really cool experience with an investigator we hadn't seen in a VERY long time. So, our appointment around their house cancelled, so we just decided to stop by. Well, when we got to her house, her daughter, who has special needs was sitting in her wheelchair. When she looked at us she smiled and screamed out of excitement. Well, we found out that she had just been asking about us! She wanted to see us, and we just walked right up to their house not even a minute later! The Lord knows the needs of his children. He uses others to be instruments in His hands. It is so cool to see the power of the gospel in people's lives.
Well, I love you all! Stay safe!
La iglesia es verdadera!
The guy who we stole his coffee, this is his house :) I love Puerto Rico!
