January 6th, 2014
This week, Rosa Romero, became the newest member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 2014! Ok, probably not, but she was baptized and confirmed!!!! Yay! After 9 months of taking the discussions, she was ready to make covenants with our Heavenly Father and it was such a great day! She is so happy and ready to start her new life in the Restored Gospel!
This week was a little bit weird, because Tuesday and Wednesday we couldn´t leave the apartment all day! We studied a lot, took a little nap, and organized/cleaned un poquito. Boring.. But we have seen the miracles this weekend! On Sunday, Monica came to church! She is a former investigator that we have been trying to contact lately. She has never let us in her house to come talk to her, but we could feel she was really prepared. The other day after the baptism, our ward mission leader, Alan and Gabriel, who has his mission call, went to visit some people who they wanted to invite to church the next day. They passed by Monica´s house and she was really stressed trying to find a job because her children didn´t have anything to eat. When they passed by she was on the verge of tears, so they asked if they could say a prayer with her. They kneeled down and asked the Lord for help. Before they could leave the house, she recieved a phone call from a job that she had been waiting to hear from! What a miracle! So she came to church with her 10 year old daughter so excited to learn more and ready to be baptized! She has a date for the 17th of January! Woohoo!
It´s still hot, but we´re surviving! I think I´m getting used to it! The cold showers help :)
On New Years, I got up and set my Resolutions for the year! I´m sad I couldn´t make them with you guys, but I took a picture so it looks like I was a part of it! :)
Things are going really great! We are working hard and seeing the fruits of our labors! We find out about transfers on Sunday! Although I think I´ll be staying here with my companion! :) Yay!
I love you all and I hope everything is going well with you! Good luck with your trip this week and have so much fun!
Love love love,
