This week was AMAZING!!!!!! 9-11-13
On Thursday we had some awesome cita’s (appointments). We asked Alfa one of my investigators if she would like to be baptized September 28th... We are hoping it works out. She wants to wait until December when her boyfriend is here. We reminded her that we may not be here in Bonao by then since my companion will be going home in October. That made her thinks a lot. We told her that we would support whatever she wants to do. We challenged her to pray about it and do what is best for her. I have grown to love her so much. She has really progressed since we met her and she has become one of my favorite investigators.
The rest of the day went great after the activity we went to go visit July because her dad had died..... We talked about the Plan of Salvation and she told us that she knows where her dad is right now. It was an awesome moment for me knowing that she had remembered that lesson, and to see that her Faith is strengthening.
Friday we started teaching some new people named Roberto and Maria. Soila. Roberto’s brother is a member of the church and they go to church with him every once in a while. They actually came up to us in the streets and asked if we’d teach them... Their Grandma loves the gospel but is very Catholic and tried to teach and convert us. It was a fun cita.
We then left and it started raining before we got to our next cita so we ran inside one of the members of the branches clothing store until it stopped raining and shared a message.
Saturday it rained ALL day! We got stuck in Nina’s house for a little bit and then we went to Alfa’s house. She wouldn´t let us leave because it was pouring. She made us soup and we had a lesson and talked. She finally let us leave when we told her we just had 1 cita to go to then we were going home. However we ended up going to 2 more cita’s. We went back to the familia Rosario and they gave us some yummy hot chocolate. Afterwards we ended our day of cita’s at July’s house. We changed July and her 2 daughter baptism date to the 21st of September because after all that has happened with losing her father recently, she doesn´t feel ready to be baptized on Saturday the 14th.
Sunday church was really good. After church we went to Alfa’s for dinner and we ate spaghetti, potato salad, and plátano fritos!!! It was so good. We then had President Jimenez and Marybel with us in our lessons that day.
Monday was a really good day. We had some really good cita’s.
For Family Home Evening we went to Hna Rosa’s house and talked about how things happen in the Lord’s time and that there is a time for everything in our life. Our last cita was with Alfa and out of nowhere she just started talking really good English after she had told us she knew very little English!... I guess our English classes are paying off! It was so fun hearing her speak in English.
Tuesday was a special day! We had some amazing cita’s. We had our Preach my Gospel class and taught about Faith... After the class my companion and I went over to a members house so that I could have the opportunity to Skype my family, so I could hear my brother Adams setting apart for his mission! That was one of the best experiences ever. I am so excited for Elder Adam Peugnet... He is going to be a fantastic missionary, and I know that he will be able to touch a lot of lives in Denver, Colorado. He has been a great example to me and I love him so much!!! See you in 2 yrs. little bro!!!!!!
I love you and miss you all!!
Until next week!
