Week 64

Today, we were in a taxi, and he told us it was a dollar fifty, and my comp asks him, in Spanish, “wow, do you speak a lot of Spanish?" to the taxi driver. Who is Latino. And lives in Panama. We laughed about it for a good five minutes. This week was a lot of nothing, we had divisions that destroyed two days of work, and then we had some crap with the Hermana’s house, there is something really bad there, so they are sleeping in our house, and we spent one night in their house, didn’t see anything, but it made me really irritable and cranky and mad, so then Saturday night we slept in the chapel, and last night slept in the living room of a member. Funzies!! Homeless missionaries!! But the Hermana’s are going to get a new house on Thursday, so all will be good by then. 

Love you,

Week 63

We put 13 fechas for baptism this week, it was awesome, and did over 100 contacts.  It was a good week. Tired, but awesome. We are going to have a good week.  I don't have a ton of time today, but I love you a lot, and have a wonderful week!

Love you,

Week 62

A sister missionary in my area, we share a branch, starting bawling yesterday, after we had lunch. Her comp called me from her house, scared. So we ran over there, and I got presidents permission to enter the house, and then I talked to her for almost two hours, trying to calm her down and make her feel better. She said that she felt like Joseph Smith did before the first vision, like something was trying to destroy her. And so then I blessed the house, and did the hand to the square, did everything in the movie. And then I gave her a blessing, and then we blessed her comp as well. And then we went home, and I slept for 12 hours. Then I woke up today, and we did some stuff, went to lunch, and I still feel tired. 

And earlier, a few weeks ago, we gave a blessing to one of the Hermana missionaries’ investigators, a little child. The mom isn’t a member. The child had a lot of cysts on his hips, and would need a lot of surgery and therapy. So, they talked to the mom yesterday, and the child is fine! The doctors did another scan, and he doesn’t have anything! He will need a tiny bit of therapy, but no more surgery or anything. He is fine. 

Love you all,

Week 61

This week was a lot of scrambling around, a lot of contacting. But, we got some great new people to teach, and the widow came to church! And her son is going to receive the Aaronic priesthood next month, so that will be awesome. We are going to throw our support behind them this next few months to help them get going. 

We were out contacting, and we found a lady cleaning a house, so we just started to talk to her. It was pretty awesome, she had a ton of questions as to why there are so many Iglesias, and what is the difference. Well, she accepted a fecha, and couldn’t asistir Iglesias, but anyways it was pretty awesome, as she is really really positive. She is reading the book of Mormon, and thinks it’s really interesting. 

But the big story this week was church. We got our investigator Siumin to come to church, and she also brought her daughter who was visiting from Panama. It was awesome!! We had 130 people in church yesterday, it was a miracle. We got every single menos activo that we had wanted to get. Well, not everyone, but at least a family member from every menos activo. After church, we went with a bunch of people from the ward, because they were showing the hermanas a new reference, and we gave out about 10 blessings, and we also blessed the house. It was really cool. 

Love you all!!
