¡Hola hola! Cómo andan? Todo bien? Espero que sí!!! [Hello Hello! How is it going? All good? Hope so!!!]
Bueno, on Tuesday we went to go see Guadalupe and Antonela, but they couldn´t talk to us. Guadalupe was just leaving her house and Antonela wasn´t there. But we did talk to Juan. We talked about the Book of Mormon and left him a CD so that he could listen. (He can´t read.) That evening we had correlación misional.
Wednesday we traveled to Leones for district meeting. It was really good! I really like this district. It´s fun to be with other hermanas! After the meeting, we made lunch together. Bueno, Hermana Criddle made lunch. She made alfredo and it was delicious! I´m so blessed to have a companion who can cook! That evening we visited with Guadalupe. We talked about the life of Christ. She told us that she didn´t know what happened to him while he was here so we taught her. She is so cute!
She always has great questions too! Then we taught Juan. The CD didn´t work. :( We have make another one. But we went through the baptismal questions and he´s all good there! Then we went to Antonela´s. We had a charla franca (frank talk?). We talked about why she doesn´t want to be baptized. She said that she likes what we teach, but she doesn´t want to be baptized. Maybe in the future. Finally we discovered that she doesn´t want to be baptized because she isn´t quite willing to live the standards of the church yet. It was really sad. It´s really sad when you have to stop teaching someone. But, her time will come to accept the Gospel. It´ll come. That evening we went to celebrate the birthday of Elena. She is an elderly woman from the ward. I think I talked about her last week. She is amazing! We had asado and empanadas!
Thursday we had weekly planning and after lunch we visited Guadalupe. She wanted some help with un chico [a boy]. He was wanting her to be his girlfriend but she doesn´t want it. We helped her talk things out. It was really cute. She thinks of us as her friends and I love that. After that, we taught Juan the ten commandments. It was a good lesson. We used the finger gestures to help him remember. Then we visited a member, Pedro, who just got his eye operated on.
Friday we went contacting in the morning with little success. After lunch we went to San Marcos! We visited Romina. Ella es tan buena! [She's so good.] She is really excited for her baptism and told us that she wants this for her whole family. (We would be teaching her husband, but he works all week and is only home on the weekends. But Romina works on Saturday so that just leaves Sunday.) We tried visiting some other people there in San Marcos, but nobody received us. Then we visited the M----- family before heading back to Bell Ville.
Saturday we did a lot of contacting. Contacting in the morning and then lunch. Then we had a SPLASH with the primary. We did divisions. I went with a young women named Chiara (Kiara). But, nobody answered the door. Then, reunited with my compi, we did more contacting. Little success.
Sunday we went to pick up Guadalupe before church. When we got there, she told us that her dad was going to take her. So we went to church. She never came. We don´t know what happened. :( After the block meeting and lunch, we had studies. Then we went to San Marcos to go to church there. (They have sacrament meeting there every other week.) Romina was there!!!!!!!!!!! We were so happy!!!! She is amazing!
Anyway, it was a good week. Though, without much success. Sometimes it feels that you can work and work, but you don´t get anything. Pero todo bien. Vamos a trabajar duro esta semana y vamos a ver los frutos de nuestro labor. :) [But it's all good. We will work hard this week and we will see the fruits of our labors.]
I love you all so much! Thank you for you love and support! Have a fantasmagorical week!!
