Our landlord Mom and dog...I think her name should be Lassie
Water Balloon P DAY...
One of our small families. lol
His hugs remind me of Jacobs!
I've decided that being known as the giant Hermana is OK.
Well i forgot ot mention that last week our zone had a water balloon fight and it was great! Loving those water balloons.
On martes we got a call from Maria and she told us she is going to assist a different church and pretty much dropped us. they were soooo pilas and had sooooo much potential! they believed in joseph smith and the book of mormon, but they dont want to do anything about it. thats how a lot of people are here. That day was a day of rejection. everything fell through and it was just hard. Miercoles was still a day of rejection, but i have quite the story.
We knocked on an 80 year olds door and she cant hear or anything. she invited us in and had us sit right up close to her. she went on and told us that jesus gave her her sickness and that one day she is going to have more power than him because he will save her. she told us wwe needed to go home get married and have ten kids. five girls and five boys. she said when she is saved everyone will be ten years old and then she will find a husband and will have 12 kids. she told us she will look so beautiful and ahve white skin and blue eyes...aka a gringa...it was just interesting. She lived alone all her life and we just feel really bad for her. she told us a very long story for about an hour but we couldnt talk because she couldnt hear us.
Then we met with a man who started reading an anti mormon book to us. his name was freddy and weeks past we were talking to a man also named freddy who just wanted to argue as well. we arent here to argue we are here to help people come closer to christ. its just a little hard.
We decided to go back to Elizabeth, the lady who lives with the korean who offered us jello, because she wasnt there when we had set the appointment for before. so it had been a week and we went back .she was so excited and said she had been waiting for us! She has had a lot a lot of hardships in her life and has realized she is misssing god in her life. she has truly been humbeled. in 3 nephi 11 it talks about how we need to be humble before accepting the lord and having faith, and i know that is true. I have a lto more humbling to do on the mission thats for sure. We had a lesson with Maria and her little girls and they all danced for us and sang for us! then they came to church!!!!!!!!!!! ahh it was so great! hopefully they will be an example for their parents.
On friday we met a lady who told us her whole life story and her police record, its crazy how much info people trust us with. so many people have many many trials, and it makes me very grateful for the blessings i ahve had in my life.
We were teaching a recent convert and i wanted to say something but something totally different came out! I love when that happens because I know the spirit is speaking through me and it really shows we are instruments in gods hands.
On sabado everything fell through again, but we had a bday party for Elainas little two year old girl because she didn't have enough money to buy her a cake so we decided to throw a party with some members! it was so great! i love them so much!!! i hope she decided to get baptized one day. Elaina said a prayer at the end of one of our lessons and it was so beautiful and from her heart. it was so great.
Well thats all for the week!!
Love ya all!! I love love hearing from all of you!
