We had interviews with President and it was super great as always. As we were waiting our turn, our zone sang songs and chatted. At one point, we sang "A Child's Prayer" each of us in our own language. Three languages at the same time. English, Portugués, y Español. Super cool experience. Hymns can bring the Spirit so strongly.
With Hermana Gove from Utah
Hermana Zarate and Hermana Gove
This week we were able to teach Evelin and Sol! Evelin (age 17) still has doubts about baptism that we have to help her with. And she has the habit that she sleeps in really late so she never makes it to church. The lesson with Sol (age 15) was super great and afterward she accompanied us for 3 hours and helped us make contacts. We also gave her a tour of the chapel. She is afraid that she will lose her friends if she gets baptized so its going to take some time. And she is hesitant to go to church. Little by little with these girls... :)
Our zone also came to work in our area for a few hours and they found some new investigators for us! We helped a member named Mercedes do family history. We were able to teach 2 other investigators named Sivia and Camila. The discussion was super great but they are hesitant to want to change.
We were blessed with great weather this week and it wasn't as cold! It was a much better week! My problem these days is that I am always tired. I am super excited to be able to take a good nap again. As hard as we work, the 8 hours every night just doesn't seem to get me fully replenished.
And on Saturday we had exchanges and I was with Hermana Gove from Utah! She goes home 6 weeks before me and it was great to talk with her and get to know her better! She is super awesome and it made me crave a companion from the states!
Aww thanks Mom for your kind words! Enjoy playing tennis for me- I miss it a lot! Every time we see people playing my heart breaks a little... It is good motivation to work hard to be back in match shape when I return.
Love you all so much!
