Ah, this week was SO good! I had an interview with the President on Wednesday and it was very good and much needed. I am not so sure that Hermana Barraza and I will have transfers, but I am learning how to love someone when they really do not deserve it. So that is good. I am also learning how to stand up to her and talk with her. I will be prepared for marriage. :) We have a family that is progressing! They are just waiting for his divorce to be finalized so then they can get married then baptized! Please pray for Isreal, Doris, Yurtizi, Sherlyn, Itzayana, and Jessnany. Buena Suerte con el nombres! :) (good luck with the names) Missionary work is not easy because salvation is not a cheap experience.
Spanish is coming along. I know a lot more than I give myself credit for. Things are slowly but surely getting better here. I am so happy this week, and the past week. Sick, but happy. I am also getting better. :) I do not know what I have because Drs here are crazy haha. Oh goodness. The stories I will have when I get home.
I got my package on Wednesday!!!!!!! :) THANK YOU!!! It wasnt even opened to get inspected.
Saturday and yesterday where really good days. I feel the love my investigators and the members here have for me. I got a note yesterday from a girl here and she wrote about how strong I am and how much faith I have and how she looks up to me. I needed it.
I have a sad story. I have felt for a few days now that we needed to go to a less active young women in our ward. I did not know this girl but I felt like we needed to go. I told my companion about these feelings and she said it was not important or that we did not have time. On Saturday We were in Tezoquipa and this feeling came very strong that I needed to go see this girl in Dendho. I told my companion and I told her we NEEDED to go. After some arguing we were headed to Dendho. I am going to call this girl Jill. We got to her house and she answered the door. I talked with her and she did not really want much to do with us. I saw a guitar so I asked her if she played the guitar. She said yes. I then asked if she would play a song for us and she said she needed someone who could play the piano. I told her she was in luck because I play the piano. After some begging she told us to come in and she played a song. I started talking to her about life and what she likes to do. I felt like I needed to ask her if she knew that Heavenly Father loves her. So I did. and she just started crying and saying how alone she feels and like God is not here for her. It broke my heart. It broke my heart because she felt this way.. but also because I saw a lot of me (before I had my conversion) in her. I felt like I was sister rigby and she was me. We talked a lot and I gave her our number. It was crazy how I love people and care about people I do not even know here. and More importantly, it showed me how I can not EVER ignore a prompting.
Thanks for all the love and prayers! I hope you have a FANTASTIC week!!
