hello hello!

So good good week! Definitely one of my favorites in the mission.
Monday started out with our activity- i think i told you about it. I
wrote about my companion getting spit in the face on the bus right?
That was hilarious. Oh and sad too of course. But anyways it was fun-
i got to talk to a bunch of new elders and tell them about how things
get better. It’s nice to be the one saying that now instead of being
the one that gets told that. I like this end better. They’re great
though. We haven’t gotten any new hermanas since me and hermana
Huenchur! So that’s kind of weird.

Anyways tuesday was a conferencia. It was really cool- we had a chance
to teach this investigator- about 100 missionaries with this one
investigator. His son and wife are members- i think he just needed a
little push, and 100 people in white shirts (and like 8 with colors ;)
) did the trick. He´ll be getting baptized this month :)

Wednesday- funny you should mention the story in the bible about the
blind man mom- this week we talked to a couple that was blind. They
politely told us we were gringas. haha. it’s actually been amazing. we
are not brilliant spanish speakers (we have some people that like to
remind us of this often). But God is showing his power through us
every day and it is awesome! The language of the spirit is so much more
strong than anything else. Today we had an appointment with marco, but
he wasn’t home! This is always really weird. But we have found that
when Marco isn’t home, it means there is something else very specific
that God needs us to do. The first time we found Kaila. This time, we
talked to this new family that we are hopeful for. You just can’t give
up hope in the mission- there are always people that God wants you to
talk to.

ok anyways thursday. So thursday we talked to Marco and he is loving
the book of mormon. We gave him the plan of salvation pamphlet, and he
read it and taught it to us this day haha. oh also he was really sad
that he had to miss the lesson on wednesday- we don’t have a phone for
him to call and tell us these kinds of things. But anyways he is doing

Friday- we met with Kaila and she too is doing awesome! We´ve only
talked to her a week, but i wouldn’t be surprised if she finished the
book of mormon before her baptism, also for feb. 16. She is very
smart, and is just soaking up everything. my favorite thing was when
we gave her a pamphlet for her to read for next time, she couldn’t help
but say "oh thank you thank you I love these!!!!!" it makes my day to
have these people that are discovering the wonderful gospel and can
see the truth! ah its just great!!! She’s 21 and marco is 22 I dunno if
i wrote that...

Saturday- well Nanci doesn’t want to listen to us anymore. But we found
another little family and the mom is super interested, because of the
light in our eyes. I was so grateful she said this- it makes me feel
like if anything, at least we are doing our part to be good servants
of the Lord. We really are working so very hard and it feels good!!!
ok so sunday- we finally got to talk to Maria Torrez again, and her
wedding is set for feb 15, baptism for 16 if all goes well. She has a
very strong testimony of the truth of the church, she just has tons
and tons of trials right now. She is 42 years old. She loves the
hymns, and i happened to buy and extra hymn book when i was at the
distribution center. She just cried and cried when i gave it to her.
Anyways pray for her that everything will work out for her wedding!!

Well obviously I’m super excited and thrilled and happy about these
upcoming baptisms. Unfortunately I wont be able to write next Monday-
we can’t leave our houses saturday night, or all day sunday, mon, tues
because its carnival!!! Everyone will be throwing water balloons full
of paint at each other, and rubbing shoe polish on each other’s faces,
and making mud puddles to push people in. so ill write on the 18th
about these baptisms!!!!

Thought: i read in the liahona (speaking of which I’ve seen Justin in
the Ensign :) ) an article by HB Eying "the Lord requires faith and
humility before he gives his help." love this! Also i got the package
of meds thank you so so so much! You should send a picture of extended
family if you can some time :)

muchooooooo ammooooooooooor!
