This week went by SO fast. It quite literally flew. But we were able to see a lot of miracles.
Miracle number one: We finally met our attendance goal, 80 people! We had lots of less actives and a couple of investigators as well.
Miracle number two: We have been working for a LOOONNNGGG time with an inactive family, Flia Florentin. They have two daughters that are recent converts, and to be honest, I have no idea how they were baptized, because it has been a struggle trying to get them all to go to church. But this last Sunday, we didn't call them, we didn't go to bring them, and what do you know, Nayeli, (14 years old) came by herself. That doesn't sound like much, but to have her come by herself and walk all of the way was definitely a miracle.
Miracle number three: Eduardo and Teli. We have been working with Eduardo for a while, and he comes to church, but he won't agree to a baptismal date. On Saturday we had a lesson on the eternal nature of the family, and we kind of stressed it a lot. We asked Eduardo if he had received an answer to his prayer and he said that he had, and that he needed to wait and research a little bit more. We left the lesson kind of bummed. We had a lesson with a recent convert in another part of our area, but we were so bummed that we just sat down for a few minutes and just talked through our feelings, what we could have done better, and how we can improve our teaching skills. On Sunday, we had another lesson, and it went so much better. We really felt the Spirit, and he came to church again with Teli, so that was great.
I am sitting here in an internet cafe, and the lady next to me has this tiny baby that keeps choking and she is just looking at her facebook....ahhhh kill me now...we have some elders that are here too and they are like...WHAT DO WE DO??? This baby is dying and the mom is looking at her freaking facebook...flip, some people's children.
Something that I realized this week is that time is passing REALLY fast. Like I am freaking out. Tomorrow, we have interviews with the president and I am kind of nervous...but he is nice and I am sure that everything will go fine. It is so crazy...I was thinking...if this is my last change in Palma Loma then I only have like 3 weeks left and the weeks are going by so flipping fast. I honestly wish I had a clone so that we could do divisions and get more stuff done, because there is so much that we have to do.
Other than that, we were just crazy busy. Palma Loma is getting so much better, the visiting teachers are awesome, and now that we have elders the priesthood can get going as well. I love you all so much and I hope that you have a good week!
