This last week was wonderful.. I love being out here serving the people!
 Here is an update of my week.

Thursday:We taught a couple of people. The first person we taught was named  Wendy. She is a menos activo (less active) and when we got there she asked us to help clean her house. So we did that as well! It was fun I love being able to help others out!
We have a new investigator  named  Bautista. He came to church last Sunday, so in our lesson we talked about what was talked about in  class when he came to church. We have a baptismal date for him as September 21st. I think it will happen. He loves learning about the Gospel and coming to church.
That night we had an activity at church that  was a lot of fun. We were all laughing so much and had a great time getting to know the members. 
Friday:  We had a nice surprise.  A member called  and told us he was sending Empenada's to our apartment for lunch. They are like calzones and are super good!
 We had a member with us in all of our lessons through out the day. We had a great day. It is always the best when we have members with us!
Saturday:   Something funny  happened and it is something that will only happen here in the DR. We were walking to a cita (appointment) and a lady about 35-40 yrs old was infront of us. All of a sudden she started stripping and left her clothes in the middle of the street and walked away. To me it was just funny and I didn't think much of it. I think that's what happens when you work in a nursing home and a hospital (like I did before my mission) you see a lot of crazy things and someone naked doesn't bother you! LOL :) 
Sunday: Was fast Sunday. Alfa finally came to church for the first time and she loved it!
 We  went to lunch at a members house and had rice and chicken... the usual. That day was great. We had the Romeraz girls with us. They both have such strong testimonies of the church and have only been members for 2 yrs. They couldn't believe some of the people that we teach. They thought it was interesting and asked if we had any normal people that we teach... We love our investigators!
Monday:Was a great day! We didn't have many lessons, but we did go visit Bienvenido. Before we left Margarita told us to wait.  She handed us some money. We told her we couldn't take it,  but she insisted that we did. Right after we left her house Hermana Porter and I  looked at each other and knew that we needed to give it to an investigator down that street who told us days before that her family is struggling.  Her husband doesn't have a job at the time. When we got to her house and gave her the money her eye's filled with tears. It wasn't much, but we knew it could help and she was so grateful. The Lord does answer our prayers and sometimes he puts others in our paths to help us out! :)
Tuesday: Was another great day. We taught Alfa, Wendy, and Bautista. After teaching them we had a Preach My Gospel class at the church about the Plan of Salvation. It was good!

 I can't imagine being anywhere else in the world right now than being here in the Dominican Republic. I love the people here  and have learned so much about myself while being here!
I hope everyone is doing great! I love and miss you all!!!!
Until next week!
