Wow! How fast this time has gone! I can’t believe this Sunday we find out what is going to happen with this cambio!! I feel like we were just made companions last week!!
It has been kind of cool here this last week, but nothing too cold! I can only picture the cute little flowers poking up and brightening the world! -leaving you with a smile on your face!
I love you soooo much and am so grateful for this opportunity to share the gospel and it is getting easier and easier to teach and express myself, which is a good thing!! Love you!!
So, last week was our zone activity, Tuesday we did divisions with the Hermana leaders and that was interesting...my comp got to be with her trainer which was super cool since she goes home next week! My experience wasn’t quite as happy. I still learned a lot from her (hna. gonzales), but she was just a little weird! Wut there is always something to learn from everyone! Wednesday, we met back up in Ambato and I was so happy to be back with my companion!!!! That afternoon after we got back and ate lunch, we went to visit a reference of a member....haha he was just a little crazy! He told us that the devil was more powerful than God!...um no....no, no!! Then we were trying to explain to him why he should come to church, why he needed to come to church, and he told us multiple times that in order to receive the blessings and help he wanted from God he had to go to church..so we asked him if he would come with us and he shook his little finger at us and told us no..he had to work...weirdo!
After that, we had a noche de hogar with a convert and her husband who is not a member and her daughter who is not a member and it was a great lesson-- apart from the fact that neither of them want anything to do with the church…
Thursday we had a lesson with Maria Vasquez and we were hoping that she would come to church with us, but she said she had to go to Quito to help her daughter with something...and that has been the way is was for the last two weeks:( but we did get to meet with Maribel again..it has been a long time! and she accepted fecha for the 28th, but we will see what happens because her "husband" keeps changing the date of their marriage! Ugh!-- but all in due time, it will happen when it is meant to happen!! We had our interviews with the president, and that went good, other than we were finishing our studies since they told us to be there at 12:30 and we got a call at 20 to 11 and our hair wasn’t as nice as we wanted it to be, and they wanted us there at the church at 11, annoying, those elders that didn’t’ let us know what time! But, overall, they went really well!!
Friday we had our district meeting and a lesson with Maribel and Carmen! They were good! Saturday we did service for the bishop’s mom and we were moving dirt...not sure how to describe it otherwise...then my companion was working on a list of the converts of the last two years so we could organize it by organization (we worked on it all morning with the members that live downstairs just to get the information about the people since when the bishop handed us the list and it had no addresses and no phone numbers), so after we did what we could to find all of that, she typed it up on an excel sheet so we could present it to the bishop. So, I did divisions with one of the sisters in the ward and we met the husband of Martha and have a cita fija with him tonight! so that will be great!! Yesterday was good, we had a lesson with one of the members in the ward and had some goodish lessons at church… nowhere near as good as yours, I’m sure! But that was our week! The worst part of my week was divisions and the best was getting to be back with my comp and meeting the husband of Martha!
Then today we went to the mall and did a little bit of shopping and then met up with the elders for lunch--we went to a Mexican place and it wasn’t all that great, but other than that it has been a pretty good week!! Anyway, I love you all soooooooooo much!!!!
