Week 47


Well this week flew by!!! Here are some highlights!

We had 2 divisions this week! They went super well, and we learned a lot! We were able to go to the area of one of the Sisters. It is so neat when you can like feel the Spirit in an area. Like that area just radiates! We found lots of people who were just ready to listen to us! 

Well it has been raining a TON! And one day we weren't ready for it! So we bought black trash bags and put them on like shirts! Our investigators sure liked it! They have named them our BOLSHAS!* :) And the drunk men in the street still told us that we were pretty! With black trash bags on! :) That´s when you KNOW they are crazy! :)

It was pretty neat, the other night we were heading to go contact in an area, and I just got a little prompting to take a certain street, and as we were walking a lady stops us and asks us where the church was. Turns out she and her family were here visiting friends and wanted to go to church, but they couldn't find our building on the website. They are members in another part of Guatemala. That was a nice tender mercy, and a great reminder to follow every prompting!

We got out of a lesson the other day and my comp was like, "Hermana, the gift of tongues is real." And I was like, "yes, Hermana, it is." And she was like, "no, Hermana, in this lesson you were talking perfect Spanish. She understood everything. And for a moment there I forgot that you were American!" I know that I am still getting LOTS of help with the whole Spanish thing. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to see the Lord's hand in my life EVERY DAY!!! 

We had a lesson with Melvin and we brought along Carlos. He was so great, and he has such a strong testimony!! I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of teaching him and Jorge. They went to the temple this week and had a wonderful experience. They were asked Sunday to share their testimonies, and it brought the Spirit so strongly to the meeting. They both act and talk like they have been members for forever. And they only have 1 week as members. And they both got the Priesthood this week!!

We also found 2 women this week that are SO ready!!! They are answers to many prayers!! We will see how things go this week with them!

OH and Edgar (friend of Jorge and Carlos) has been going to seminary for over a month. He went all the way to the temple just to sit outside. The branch president invited him to go, and we didn't even know! Haha, but he loved it! And then he went to church yesterday, and last night asked us if and when he could get baptized!!!! He has a date for October 8th!!!

Ponderizing: 1 Nephi 17:15 Wherefore, I, Nephi, did strive to keep the commandments of the Lord, and I did exhort my brethren to faithfulness and diligence.

Well I sure love you all!!!
-Hermana Garrett
