Hola hola hola! ¿Cómo les fue está semana? Espero que todo esté bien. :)
[Hello Hello hello! How was your week? Hope all is well. :)]
Bueno, this week. This week . . . was hard. A bit.
So, Elva. We visited her this week to give her one last chance. She hasn´t been progressing for a while now and so we had a charla franca. We dropped Elva this week. It was sad. She is such a sweet lady. She told us that she is going to keep praying and reading the Book of Mormon, "even if you don´t come anymore." It was sweet.
Estela apparently really doesn´t want anything to do with us. She just said yes because she didn't want us to feel bad. So, that was hard.
But, we did find two families! Woohoo!
One of them we could only teach the mom. Her name is Belén. We talked a lot and she told us that her father died two years ago. She feels really guilty because she feels that there is more that she could have done to help him. As a result of her guilty feelings she has resorted to smoking. We were talking and as I was thinking about what she needed to hear I first thought Plan of Salvation. Her father died. She needs to know that she can see him again. But that wasn´t right. So then I thought, she needs to hear about the Atonement. That she can be forgiven. Nope. Wrong again. My companion told me later that she thought about the Word of Wisdom even. But no. All wrong. She needed to hear that God loves her, that she is His daughter and the she is important to Him. We talked about that and the Spirit was very strong. It was beautiful! I really showed me that really, it´s the small and simple things that the people need to hear. The small and simple things are the most easily forgotten and the most needed.
We also found Mayra and Sebastian. We were only there for a short time and so we don´t really know them yet, but we´re excited to work with them!
Anyway, we are hoping to find some new investigators this week!
Romina and her family are doing well. Although we didn´t really get to talk to them this week. Francina turned 10 and so they were preparing the party and everything. But, we´ll get them next week. :)
I hope you are all doing well and that you always remember how much I love you! Have a fantastic week!!!
