This week was a pretty normal week. We worked SUPER hard. We counted up our numbers for the week and we had 22 lessons with less actives/recent converts. We had about 40 lessons this week. I am definitely getting my Spanish practice in. I’ve noticed that I am starting to be able to understand a little more! I am speaking a tiny bit better, that will come with time. In a little over a week, I will be done with my training and I will most likely have a Latina companion! I’m nervous but it will be really good for me.
There’s not too much this week, I’m sorry. Oh! This week we found 10 new investigators! One thing that I do know, is that the Lord DOES prepare people. Sometimes when we say, "Hola, somos misioneras de la Iglesia de Jesucristo. (poquito mas) hay un tiempo en que podemos volver and charlar poquito?" and Im always so surprised when they say sure! Haha. Im like, really? The Lord works in His own time and His own way.
We went on divisions this week and me and Hermana Chen found a new investigator in our area. He’s super awesome. His mom has cancer but he has a really good attitude about it. He knows a lot about God and is willing to listen to our message. Its cool to be able to help people progress and come closer to the Lord. I was actually nervous for divisions because I knew I would be in my area all day and I would have to direct where we go, but I actually knew our area super well, and we found some really awesome people to have lessons with. And I think that I am starting to teach through the spirit more. Its really cool! And the gift of tongues is so real.
We are going to Brazil again tomorrow. Lets hope that goes better than last time haha! Oh and mom, they are going to make a little part of Brazil part of our area. Its crazy how fast time goes on the mission! The days sometimes seem so long haha but I hit my 4 month mark soon! Thanks for all of your prayers and emails! I’m sorry that I don’t have time to write everyone.
Love you all!
