Mother's Day

Hola! Espero que se encuentren bien. Todo tranqui? (tranquilo)
[Hello! I hope you are fine. Is everything calm?]

This week was hard. Again. 

So, we haven´t been able to find new investigators really. Also, Belén, well she kind of disappeared. We went to our appointment, and she wasn´t there. We went many times to her house, and she wasn´t there, or didn´t want to receive us. We were really sad.

Mayra and Sebation, well our appointment is this week. We´re hoping it goes well...

On Saturday, we did find one person! We were in San Marcos and we decided to contact a former investigator. She´d moved, but Romina found her address for us. When she answered the door, it was obvious that she had been crying. We talked about how she had gotten to know the other hermanas and why they stopped visiting her. She said that she had been really busy taking care of her grandmother and so when they went, she wasn´t ever there. Then she started crying. She told us that her grandmother had passed away recently. They had been really close so it was really hard for her. We testified about the Plan of Salvation and that she will be able to see her again. She felt a bit better and told us that she really needed to hear that. She needed that hope. We´re going back on Friday. :)

We had another experience that made me reflect a lot on the spirit of our homes. On Tuesday, we went to a service to help a lady take bits of wall out of her house. (She's redoing a bedroom.) When we went in to help her, it was like my spirit was being choked. It felt horrible in this house. The moment we walked in, we wanted to run out. Later on that night, we went to a member's house. When we walked in the door, a peace flooded our spirits. It felt so wonderful to be in her house. We knew the difference was that the Spirit was in the member's house. 

It made me think a lot about the ambiance that exists in our homes. When there is contention, you feel it, anger, you feel it. Love. Wow, you really feel it.

Anyway, I hope that you are all doing well and that you have a fantastic week this week!!!

Love from,
