Families Are Forever

 Hola familia y amigos!!! Espero que estén muy bien!!!

Bueno, first off. Last week I meant to send the scripture 2 Nephi 2:15 not 1 Nephi 2:15. (how embarassing...yet rather funny) ;)

Okay, this week was good. Rather hard, but good. 

Jennifer and Milagros. We weren´t able to talk seriously with them. They were always just leaving or had something. Saturday was Jennifer´s birthday so we went to say hi and celebrate a little. But we couldn´t stay long. Also, Milagros just got a job at a hotel and she works Sundays. They didn´t go to church. As usual.

Diego and William. We haven´t been able to see them. When we call, they´re very short and it feels like they don´t want to meet with us again. But, we´re going to go one more time and see. 

On Wednesday, Hermana Medina sent a text to Valentina in the morning saying that we love her and encouraging her to do her prayer. That night, she sent a text from someone else´s phone telling us that she really needed that text that day. We went on Friday to visit her and she said that she had been really sad about her grandma who had passed away three months ago. We testified that we can have eternal families and we gave her a copy of the Book of Mormon. She really likes to read so we´re hoping that she does it. We had marked some of the questions that she had asked us and she was really excited. It was a really sweet lesson. Very tender. She also said the prayer at the end! Remember that she had said that she was atheist. She also said that next week, she´ll go to church with us! I sure hope so!!!!

Marcela, Eliana and Ariadna weren´t there, but we´re hoping to find them this week. 

We also went to La Falda to visit Hermana Ortiz and Hermana Meneses (Jaramillo, she changed her last name). It was a fun day! I went with Hermana Ortiz and it was great!

Overall, it was a hard week. I don´t know what we are doing wrong. We are trying to be 100% obedient. We´re not perfect, but we´re doing pretty good with that. We take members to the lessons, we leave commitments, we testify, we invite. But still, nothing. I know that this is God´s work, but if it´s God´s work, why isn´t it working right now? I know I just have to be patient and trust in the Lord. I know it´ll come. I don´t know when, but I know it´ll come.

I hope you all have a great week! I love you all so much!!!!!

Love from,
Hermana Micaela Wilson
