Hola hola hola! Qué tal todos?
This week was good. Long. Okay, it was hard.
Because of the zone conference last week, we had to postpone a trip and we traveled twice this week. On Tuesday we went to Merlo, San Luis (4 hours away) and to Saldán (2 hours away). Let´s just say that we were pretty tired afterwards.
On Tuesday in Merlo, we had a great exchange! I went with Hermana Duran (the only other Colombian in the mission besides my companion). We visited some Jehovah´s Witnesses. Literally, we had an appointment with them. It was amazing. We were able to have a cordial chat about beliefs. I learned a lot about what they believe and I hope that we were able to communicate our beliefs as well. It was amazing, though. At the end, we bore our testimonies. After bearing mine, I felt such a strong confirmation from the Spirit that it was true. We left there and gave each other a hug. I am so grateful for this church!
On Wednesday, we were beat. We got back at 6:30 a.m. and slept an hour. Then we were up and went to our district meeting. That evening, we had a lesson with Diego and William. It was really good!! We talked about the Restoration and they had lots of good questions. But, they accepted it!!!!
On Thursday we went to Saldán and helped the hermanas there. They´d had a hard week last week and we were able to help them. It was really good! It was also a great opportunity to help the hermanas themselves. They were kind of down. I love being a Sister Training Leader!!!
Friday we were looking for people all day. Nothing.
Saturday we did the same. No one wanted to listen. Finally we clapped in front of a house and we talked to a woman there. She was interested and we´ll be going back next week!!! Right when we were the most discouraged! It was a miracle!!! We visited Jennifer and Milagros that night too. But Jennifer wasn´t there. Milagros also told us that she had to go visit her sister in Jesús María (go figure) on Sunday before her sister went to Salta. So she wasn´t going to be able to go to church. But she said that Jennifer was still going to go.
Sunday, Jennifer and Milagros didn´t go. They won´t be able to be baptized on the 27th now. We were pretty heartbroken. But, Diego went!!!!! He said he liked it too!!! So, that was pretty great!!!!
Anyway, we´re doing okay. It´s just been a hard transfer. I feel like we´ve been working harder than ever, but we don´t see any success. But, we´ll keep on keepin’ on. You never know what´s around the corner.
I hope you all have a great week!!! I love you all so much!!!!
