Wow, this week was calidad!! We started off the week with divisions! I had an Hermana Leader that came to Los Amates to work with me. She actually goes home ! So it was awesome to talk to someone with so much experience!!
Also, today we have cambios (changes)!! And big news, I am staying in Los Amates! Also, I'M TRAINING!! I am super excited!! I will meet my new compañera(companion) !!
Tender mercy of the week: SO we were contacting in a new area, and there was a lady that walked out of her house and so we decided to contact her, and asked if she had a moment to talk. Well she let's us in, and starts to tell us how when she was younger and lived in the capital she went to activities at our church, like mutual and things like that. Then she continued to tell us how the Elders had come by her house here in Amates a while ago and read something out of The Book of Mormon to her. She really enjoyed it, and had lots of questions, but wasn´t comfortable asking the elders right then. But after they left she decided that if she saw them again she would stop them and ask.
This is where we come in. So it was amazing because the Elders planted a seed, and then we were able to step in and answer her questions! She is amazing. Her name is Nora. She has 4 children, Roy(17), Wendoline(15), Fernando(10), and Sharon(4). We continued to teach them throughout the week, and then we went over to make sure they would come to church, and before we could even remind her, she said, ¨now you guys are coming over at to pick us up for church, right?¨ Never has an investigator ever been so excited to go to church that they confirm with US!! Anyway, so they came to church, it was wonderful, they had lots of great questions, the son wants to go on a mission, and Nora, Roy, and Wendoline have baptismal dates for the !!
So I feel super blessed to be able to teach them. They are amazing. We also went to a nursing home with the Elders. We sang hymns, showed them pictures, and shared some spiritual thoughts. It was super.
So this week I am ponderizing D&C 43:16.
Love you all so much!!
