This week has been awesome, so many things have happened.Thursday we had a cita with a famiy that has been really hard for us for us to teach. (Elizabeth and Alberto) they ask a lot of questions, but they never let us explain or respond to their questions. Luckly this time we had a member with us that helped us out a lot but still it was a hard lesson. I wish they would just listen and let us get through a lesson and explain the lessons to them.We just need to continue to pray and be patient with them. Other than that, the rest of the day was great.
Monday was a fun day. Hermana Colton and I were asked to help some dentist that came here to help La Accion a program to do dental work on some kids! We got chosen to be in the room with the dentist to translate what they were saying to the kids. It was so cool seeing teeth be transformed and we also saw a lot of teeth pulling because most of the kids here have really bad teeth it is so sad to see. It is from all of the soda and candy that they eat.
It is sure making me thankful for all that I have in my life.
The kids here are so brave/ strong/tough. The dentists didn't have all their usual supplies and equipment like they would use in the states, but they did an amazing job fixing the kids teeth and making their teeth look better!
We then came home and went straight to our citas! We did a lot of service. I love serving people and the opportunity that I have to be here in the mission serving these people in the Republica Dominicana, Santiago La Union area.
We also met with a menos activo Paula. She is a very special lady. I can not wait to help her to come back to church. It is just like with the Familia Ortiz, it has been awesome to see them change. They are able to see all of the blessings that they are receiving by making simple changes in their lives. Seeing them come to church and changing their lives have been one of the biggest blessings ever!
Tuesday we had a zone conference that was really good. I love zone conferences and district reunions, I always learn so much in them on how I can become a better missionary or person.
We had some awesome citas. We did some service and took some pictures for Mia's 1st Birthday It was so cool to do that for the family!
Today we went and saw a lot of people from Puerto Plata (one of my old areas) that I have been missing. It was awesome seeing them.
We also got information to start teaching an English class in the institue. I am excited for that!
Well I've got to go, but I hope you have a great week!
