April 21, 2014

FELIZ PASCUA! :) Hope ya had a great Easter! Ours was just a regular day, but NO ONE was home, so it was actually kind of long, but it was still good :) I don't remember Terri.. haha you guys probably got to know her after I left. HA good luck being MC! Should be fun ;) So crazy school is almost out! I seriously can't even believe it's almost May! Where does the time go??

This week was really great! (as always right? That's just a missionaries life for ya ;)) Miracles after miracles! So we taught Norma the word of wisdom, and she REALLY wants to change her life! She's been drinking, smoking, and drinking coffee pretty much her whole life! But after we taught it last week, she's been living it! MIRACLE! Totally cold turkey! And it's hard cause her family still does it, so she's around it  A LOT! She's so strong though! We drop by every night to follow up and I can already see the changes in her! She's SO happy! The Elder's gave her a blessing after church yesterday and it was just amazing :) We need to keep preparing her, but the hope is that she's getting baptized this Sunday! And Jesus comes home from his mom's house this week, so the hope is that he gets baptized this Sunday as well! There's a few others that potentially could too, so we'll be working SUPER hard this week! Pray for miracles!

So I had a really cool experience this week! So in a lesson with that lady that came to the baptism last week (she's totally back tracked-she's been studying with J-dubs...) so we were just laying everything down for her cause she hasn't been keeping commitments or anything. So we were just straight forward and did a lot of testifying. Then there was a moment when Hna. Graham was talking and I was like wow she's speaking so fast, how is she doing that? (course it was in Spanish) I was just thinking, I hope I can speak like that one day. Then when it was like my turn to speak, the same thing happened to me! GIFT OF TONGUES! Holy cow! It was the coolest feeling ever! Usually I have to kind of think about like grammar and stuff when I'm speaking, but it just flowed out SO FAST! And I don't even remember what I said! And there was just so much power behind it! After it was just silent! So crazy! Super super awesome! After the lesson, Graham and I were talking about it, and we were like what just happened?? Way cool :)

We had 5 investigators at church this week! (well baptism age) We had a really sweet family that came! Sarahi, she has 5 kids, and they don't have a car that can fit all of them in it, and she has a 3 month old with a car seat, and a special needs daughter with a car seat, then 3 others, so AWESOME Hno. Huerta helped us out and picked them up! They're a cute family :)

Everything else is going really good! Just keep finding the people that are ready, and dropping the people that aren't! OH! So I had a SUPER SUPER embarrassing thing that happened to me this week! HAHAHA so bad! It's a really long story, and it's better like telling it, so don't forget to ask me about it when we Skype on Mother's day! So funny! Anyways! Love you! Have a great week :)

oh and ps one of the Elder's recent converts, Maria, bought Graham, herself and I matching high heels!!! Uh... hahaha so weird! But we had to like accept them! So I guess I'll just keep them to remember her? hahha she's soooo sweet.

Here's a pic from yesterday! Car selfie on Pascua while we were waiting for Hno. Huerta :) And yes I know I look bald, but ya don't get a lot of time Sunday mornings to get ready cause you have to leave early to go wake up your investigators!
