Week 35: 8 Months ?!?
I hope you are all doing great! We had a great week down here! It went by fast!...too fast actually! There was so much that happened this week that we didn't have much time for finding new people. :/ Also, I hit 8 months in the mission this week...kind of crazy!
Well, here's the scoop this week...
Monday—just a classic, relaxing p-day consisting of fried chicken and ice cream!
Tuesday—district meeting and got to do a baptismal interview for some Elders in the district!
Wednesday—we spent the whole afternoon inviting people to a missionary activity night that we had later that night!! But NOBODY showed up! Only 3 people...and they were members....hahaha, it was a big bummer and awkward. We were going to watch Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration but only 3 people came.
Thursday—we had zone conference, which was good! President shared some GREAT ideas how to find new people!
Friday—we had some good lessons and found a great new couple! We were walking down the street and passed this couple sitting down and I got a feeling to turn around a I said to him "sorry to interrupt but, do you like to read?" it sparked a conversation and I mentioned the Book of Mormon and he was super interested, he invited us to his house to learn more. He promised to read it and to pray and ask if it is true! Things just clicked so fast with him! It was awesome.
Saturday—CONFERENCE! I got to listen in English for the morning and afternoon sessions so that was cool! The afternoon sesh was my fav! There are some real good talks in that one!
Sunday—more CONFERENCE!! Today I listened in Spanish with our investigators and they loved it! We had 7 people come! I was super thankful!
I am so happy and feel so blessed that we live in a time where we have prophets and apostles with the power of revelation and the Priesthood keys restored on the earth! AANNDD we get to listen to them every 6 months! Sometimes we forget how much of a blessing that is in and of itself!
Well, this week should be a good one! Eliu's baptism is on Saturday and the Tello Fam should be coming up real soon! I don't have time right now so I'll tell you all about them next week! :)
Have a good week everyone!
Grubbin on some good ole fried chicken last P-day!
I NEVER miss an opportunity to get my paws on a cone!!!!!
Service we did for our investigators this week! They made me wear a cowboy
hat/sombrero so that I wouldn't get sunburnt. It made me reminisce on the good ole times.
Me drowning out my sorrows of our unsuccessful activity night with Oreos and milk! Hahaha!
Me wearing my "special occasion tie" to kick off the conference weekend.
Also, Elder Ramirez by my side (he was my trainer and now he's in my district, haha.)
Testing out the self timer on my camera.
