Hey Everyone how's it going?
I'm doing great.
Well my week has been good!
Thursdays are my least favorite days out in the field. We have weekly planning and companion inventory on those days. I would rather be outside. Well after 36 days of NO electricity we FINALLY have it!!! yay! :) Thursday nights we have activities at the church with our investigators and members. Last week all of the kids that we are teaching came and played games with Hermana Porter while I sat and talked with one of the Elders in my area Elder Panta ( he speaks mostly Spanish and a little English). He helped me practice my Spanish~ it was really cool! :) I was actually able to understand a lot of what he was saying to me. A funny thing happened that day while we were walking to a cita (appointment) A chicken crossed the road in front of us when it got to the other side it started pooping!!! LOL :) It made us laugh and totally made my day because we weren´t having such a great day.
Friday was a really good day we had quite a bit of citas. One cita was with a lady named Juana, She seems very interested. However, I play a game with her because she speaks very fast so I´m lucky if I'm able to understand some of what she says. Other than that she is very nice. Another cita was with an investigator named Venessa she is a very special lady to me. After leaving her house that night she told me that my Spanish is really improving and that I am learning really fast. Hearing that from her was a huge compliment especially since she is a really quiet person.
Saturday and Sunday were quieter days. Sunday we had 12 investigators at church which was awesome!! Last week we also had 5 new investigators, and 6 investigators with baptism dates for August 10th!!! :)
Monday morning was a really hard time for me. I felt like I was alone and was very home sick. I really needed some comfort so I got down on my knees and prayed to Heavenly Father for His help, comfort, love, peace, and anything else that I might need. I then turned my scriptures to Alma 31:31 and it says "... my heart is exceedingly sorrowful; wilt thou comfort my soul in Christ... wilt thou grant unto me that I may have strength..." I then felt the comfort of God in my life. It really helped me a lot. Prayer is a very special thing that we have in our lives and we are lucky that we can always talk to our Heavenly Father when we need help with whatever it may be. I know that Heavenly Father answers prayers and that it is not always in the timing that we want it to be but He does always hear us and we are His children.
I love you all and miss you tons. Hope you're all doing great and that you have a great rest of the week! Until next week!!!
