This week brought "un MONTÓN" (a ton) of changes! We got transfer calls and in my last transfer my companion and I will stay together (that means we will be together a total of 6 months!)...but that is not the only change, the other sisters in our ward are both leaving, so we will be taking on all of their investigators AND our investigators! We will definitely be occupied these next couple of weeks teaching them! Luckily we know most of their investigators and where they live, so that is a plus! But, as always a super awesome week!
We had a lesson with Rosaline (the woman with the 3 adorable little girls, and then we went to visit with Ricardo and Marines, a golden family that has a little baby boy! ETERNAL FAMILIES! We got to their house after having given them a Book of m\Mormon in the last lesson and we asked them how their reading is going...they were like, okay we just started (that usually means they have read the first 4 verses or something) but then they started to tell us about the first 4 CHAPTERS! We were blown away! Marines is less active, but she has such a desire to follow Jesus Christ, and be sealed with her husband and their little son :) Also, this week the Dominican in our house made Sancocho (it's like stew, but super good!) I will attach a picture :)
We met an AWESOME family, they really needed a message of Jesus Christ, and then we returned on Sunday and they had told us that it brought so much peace in the week and they are excited and interested in learning more! We have seen so many miracles in finding new people. Preach my gospel (the manual for missionaries) says that nothing happens until you find, so to teach, ya gotta find!
We are also teaching a man who has a lot of knowledge of the bible, and he is super Catholic, but there are a lot of doubts that he has. As we have been teaching, he has found that the gospel answers his questions. He is excited to read the Book of Mormon because he knows that it will help him answer some doubts.
Well, that was our week! OH! I can't forget the most important part! We are now going to be without water every 3 days, and then we have one day of water, and it goes another 3 days...the lake is drying out. But, it's okay! We made a shower using a gallon jug :) If you poke holes on the bottom and screw on the top, the water stays in the jug, but once you take the top off, the water comes out! Life is good with a gallon jug of water in the morning :)
Love you all! Have a wonderful week!
Con Mucho amor,
