So this week went well! It flew by that is for sure!! Here are some highlights:
-So we went with Wendy and Bryan, and well they are back together now, and have a wedding date for 19 of November!! Please pray that everything goes smoothly with them!! They want to get married and baptized the same day!
-We had divisions with some other Hermanas in the capital, and they went super well! And while we were in divisions we found Katherine. She is 19 years old. She is awesome! She and her husband have 2 daughters, and they live in a tiny tiny room. They don't even have a bed or chairs. But they are so happy. Her husband sells peanuts on the street. He probably makes about 15Q a day... Which is about $1.75... But they are sure great. They are originally from a little pueblo (town) up north. They have their own dialect. And they feel more comfortable praying in their language... It is pretty neat.
-So a few weeks back we found Luis and Oralia. They were sure nice to us since the first time we met them. Well after the first lesson, we went back and back and back and they were never there, and sometimes they would answer the phone, but most of the time no. Well this week when we went, we found out why... Because Oralia had her baby!! We were like ohhhh yeah it all makes sense now! :) But the mother in law told us that Oralia had to rest (be in the house, can't clean, basically can't do anything) for 40 days! I was like, I think that is a little extreme... But they are doing well. They are reading in the Book of Mormon, and the daughter Ashley is super pilas (awesome)!
-So Tuesday was crazy!! We had concilio (counsel) in the morning, and then we rushed back home because we had an activity as a zone where we were outside the cemetery singing and contacting people, because it is was Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)! It went super well!!! And after we went and cleaned in the cemetery! But man! THERE WERE A TON OF PEOPLE! Everyone goes and puts flowers, food, drinks, etc. on the graves of their family members. And well it was super awesome. We were able to talk to so many people, and well, I was singing the whole time, so I was happy! :) And well a lot of our investigators saw us that day, and since have been much more willing to let us in and visit with us!
-On Sunday we had a goal to find a family of 4, and well we were walking past a street, and remembered that we had talked to a lady once that said she lived in this street, so we decided to give it a try. We knocked on the door... and waited... then we knocked again... and waited... and then Angela answered the door, walked us up to her apartment, and what do you know?! A family of 4! And they were sooooo great! And at the end of the lesson the dad said the prayer, and Angela told us that she had told her sons about us and they were waiting for us to stop by their house! She said that God clearly wanted us to pass by that day for them, and that is wasn't by chance.
Pondering: 3 Nephi 15:9
Love you all!!
