Week 8

Monday, July 15, 2013

Ahh familia and friends! I have very little time to write this week. Heavenly Father knows one of my pet peeves is crappy computers so I think He's trying to teach me patience my giving me the worst computer every week...heh heh.

Anyway, this week has been amazing! We're working hard. The ward is getting more excited to do the work with
 us and I'm getting accustomed to everything now that I'm on my second week. Like its not a big deal that I shower with a bucket anymore haha. 

We have an investigator named O who is getting baptized on the 3rd of August! We're really excited for him. He's making amazing changes in his life. And we have an investigator named R, he's 22. The only problem is his family is evangelico and they don't want him to get baptized and he cares about his family a lot and doesn't want to do anything that would upset them. He hasn't come to church yet but I think that when he does he will have the desire to take action.

We have 2 investigators who are jovenes (young), A and J, who also have a huge desire to get baptized but their moms won't let them either. It happens a lot here and it's sad but I know the lord will soften the hearts of their parents as they live the things we have taught them.

We had a baptism this week! It doesn't really count haha, but kinda. B is an 11 yr old who lives in M and was visiting family here. They wanted him to get baptized by his uncle who lives in our ward so we finished the 2 lessons he has left and baptized him. Sweetest kid I've ever met. He has helped me a lot with having childlike faith in the Lord.

I've had many lessons about faith this week. I'm learning to have faith at all times and in all things and in all places, not just when it's easy. It's brought a lot more happiness to my life.
So we have this one investigator B who is so great. She loves us and said we are her daughters since she only has sons. So we teach her in her restaurant and there was this one woman one day who was asking us about where we were from and when I told her I was from the US she said, "Oh I know English! I can say "I love you, I need you, I'm hungry" hahahaha I told her that was awesome and all she needed to know to get by in the US haha. It was so funny, but only to me obviously, so I was trying not to laugh too much, but still with her accent, it was priceless.

Que mas? The weather has been crazy! It's dang hot alllll day and then in the night it pounds rain! I've never heard or seen rain this strong. Oh and last night I experienced my first earthquake! We were planning when the apartment started to tremble like crazy. It lasted for like 5 seconds but me and Hermana Dumay had to recover for like 5 minutes because it startled us so bad. It was pretty strong! Well I can't compare it to anything but it seemed like a big one to me. But don't worry mom, not a scratch. I haven't gotten sick at all yet! And the food is great. I eat frijoles and platanos all day erry day and it hasn't phased me yet haha so good. I'm obsessed with platanos. The only annoying thing is that my legs look like a minefield from all the bug bites. Todo bien.

Everyday gets better and I learn more. I can't believe I've only been in the field for 2 weeks. Missions are hard but sooo fun everyone! I just want you all to know that.

Con amor,
Hermana Infanzon
