Proselyting last week was a lot different than the first time. Both times were awesome and we had some good experiences. This past Saturday was a bit more rough. It started to pour on us while were out on the streets. The weather here is a lot like North Carolina. The streets were filled with streams and puddles. We were very wet by the end of the day. But that really didn't matter. Some people were looking at us like we were crazy and it was had to hear some people in the rain, especially since we could barely understand what they were saying in the first place. This proselyting day was definitely a lot harder than the first, but it felt good to be out there not caring what I look like. I love sharing the gospel with others! One of the hardest parts was that it was siesta and on top of that, it was a saturday siesta. So there weren't a lot of people out. We had look harder and do things we didn't do last time. We knocked on a few doors. Not many people answered, but one guy did and listened to our message. he spoke really good english. And so I was able to bare my testimony and the way I really felt and it felt SO GOOD. I can't wait till I get to that point when I am speaking spanish. Lots of practice!!
Me and my district have gotten so close. We are each other's family while we've been here at the CCM. They have all been such a big blessing to me.This week it will change a little though. Our
Argentina lost! I really wanted to be in Argentina when they won the World Cup. Wouldn't that have been awesome?! Oh well, i heard they played a good game. And there were fireworks everywhere anyways. It's so cool to see and hear the people out there when they score or win a game. it's pretty crazy being here in Argentina. i love it.
Right now there are only 15 people in the CCM. We're in between transfers, so that's why. But it's still really fun to say that. I think I heard theres about 4000 in the Provo MTC? Pretty crazy! I couldn't even imagine that right now. Today we get to meet new latinos and new north americans! So excited! We get excited over the littlest things here in the CCM haha. But I love looking for those little things that make us happy and laugh together.
Well, I hope you are all having a good week so far! I love you all and I thank you all for your support and the little things you guys do for me. Every bit of support is helpful! I couldn't be here without it and without the Lord helping me. Anyways, keep looking for the good in everyday and look towards our Savior in everything you do. It will really be the best example to others that are seeking hope and truth and light. This gospel can bring it. The other day we were talking and I just feel so blessed to be here. I know I am supposed to be here at this time. I know this is the perfect place and perfect time for me to be here in my life. And it feels so good to say that. It feels good to know that this is where Heavenly Father wants me to be right now. Life is really crazy and it can be really really hard at times. But this gospel can bring us that knowledge. If we are doing our best and following God's will for us everyday, you can have that assurance that you are where God wants you to be. you can have that peace that you are doing just fine and making our Heavenly Father happy. The gospel can bring you that. That is how I am constanly feeling peaceful even though I am totally not in my comfort zone most of the day. We are so blessed to have the knowledge of the gospel. I LOVE IT! I encourage each of you to find that love and peace that you can through the gospel.
Have a good week! I'll talk to you next week!
love, Hermana Wiscombe
