Hello, all! So many amazing things happened this week. I think it
was the best week of my mission! Here we go:
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we had an exchange and I went with Sister
Suman in YSA (USF Campus). It was so fun! We met a lot of awesome
people and hope they keep in contact. One of their investigators came
to institute class with us and said he felt something different there.
We also went to Vallarta's for dollar tacos - so good!
On Thursday we cleaned out a disabled member's pantry and food storage
that was old and dirty. English class was cancelled both days this
week because they all work at the same place and had to work late. We
taught John on Friday and he seems to be progressing in his knowledge.
He wasn't able to come to church on Sunday but has been reading the
Book of Mormon.
Saturday and Sunday were the best. We stopped by Rene's house and
were able to teach his whole family! He and his son Haritz took turns
translating for Rosa, Rene's wife. They were very receptive and had
already been planning on coming to church with their cousins. When we
asked them to come, they looked at each other and said, "Primera Dios"
or "God first". They are so amazing and the kids are so cute. They
came to church and got Spanish translation headsets. We have a Spanish
Sunday school class, so Rene and Rosa went there while we got to go to
Primary with Sbeide, their daughter! It was so fun.
After church we had a lesson with Tammy and she opened up to us with
questions and concerns. It was really good because we were able to
understand how to teach her better. She wouldn't take a Book of
Mormon because she said this week was so crazy she wouldn't have time
to read it and she also wanted time to absorb what we had taught her.
But she agreed with almost everything we said and is very close to the
Missionary work is amazing. There is no greater happiness than to see
someone come closer to Jesus Christ. The love we feel for those we
teach is amazing as well. I am so grateful for Heavenly Father's
blessings. He knows us perfectly and wants what is best for us.
Have a great week!
