Wow, the time is flying by so fast! This week was an amazing week!
Tuesday, was Hermana Romeril´s birthday! I made her pancakes for breakfast. Then we went to La Costanera and visited Jorge and Cerafina (I found out I´ve been spelling her name wrong) and a less active family, P----. Then we had lunch at the bishop´s house. We had asado which is like barbeque, but Argentine style. It was really good! Just a lot of meat . . . a lot. Also, there was blood sausage. They love blood sausage and I´m not a huge fan. I can eat it, but I´d rather not. :) Then we had to go to the V------ family´s house. They called us and told us to come, not telling us why. We went and they had made Hermana Romeril a cake. A huge cake with dulce de leche inside and out! It was delicious! After that, we did some contacting. I tried to make it a special day for Hermana Romeril. I hope she enjoyed her day. :)
Wednesday we had district meeting. That took up the morning. After lunch, we visited the M------- family, but they weren´t there, so we went to the V------ family. Then we got the house ready because the Sister Training Leaders were coming the next day.
Thursday we went out with the Sister Training Leaders. I was with Hermana Wade. She´s from Arizona. She was really nice! She came on her mission last January so she´s kind of like me, just a year ahead.In the morning, we made a few contacts and visited Hermana M---------. Her husband isn´t a member and we asked her why. She said that he just doesn´t want it. She also said that after 15 years of trying, she´s stopped pushing it. I imagine it´d be hard. We had lunch with a sort of less active family and had churripan. It was delicious!!!! Then we had weekly planning and interviews with the other hermanas. Then Hermana Wade and I visited the family V------ and Angie and Emanuel shared their conversion stories. It was really fun to hear their stories! Then we met Hermana Romeril and Hermana Regalado at the church to teach English. After that, the other hermanas had to leave to their area and Hermana Romeril and I went to a lesson with Mauricio´s family. We taught lesson 3, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It went really well! The parents are getting baptized on Saturday!!!!!!! We are so excited!
Friday we had studies and our lunch [appointment] couldn´t give us food at her house, but she brought it to us in the pension. Homemade pizza! Then we went to La Costanera for a bunch of appointments. Some of them fell through, though. But we did have a lesson with Jorge and Cerafina, and Jorge prayed! Then we contacted the M------- family (part member family) and we have some appointments with them!
Saturday we went to La Costanera and visited Cerafina and then Sebastian. We had lunch in the pension and then we taught Graciela in the church. She feels really alone. I feel bad for her. No one wants to feel alone. Everyone needs to know that someone cares about them and that there´s hope. I hope we helped. Then a member, Elizabeth Diaz, picked us up to go talk to her friend who lost her mom about a month ago. Her friend, Mari, is great! She has such a sweet spirit! Then we made some contacts from references. Reyna A------ and then Manuela. They are great!
Sunday we had Haydeé, Adelmo and Valeria (Mauricio´s family) come to church! It was great! Also, Mauricio recieved the priesthood and he is going to baptized his family on Saturday! Then we had lunch with la familia A------ and then interviews and *consejo de barrio (no sé cómo se dice en inglés. Lo siento). Then we visited Mauricio´s family. It was a good day!
At the beginning of last week, our zone leaders told us that we needed to get 20 new investigators. That´s a lot and we were really stressed out. But, by Saturday night, we had exactly 20 new investigators! And, Haydeé and Adelmo (Mauricio´s parents) are getting baptized on Saturday!!! We are really excited!!!!
I hope that you are all doing well!!! I love you all so much!!!!!!!
Have a fantastic week!!!
