BUENOS DIAS BUENOS DIAS YES I AM STILL ALIVE
I know we all thought I wouldn't make it, but I've made it past the child crying all night and not sleeping phase and Hermana Short is eating solids now!!! Such a proud mom :)
My new greenie comp is Hermana Short! She is actually so awesome and basically a better missionary than I am, BLESSINGS. She is from Sandy, Utah (real creative hermana). Just kidding utah is the best. She went to mexico for the MTC and is basically at least 10 shades darker than me. I promised her WA will fix that real fast :) She is such a blessing to me and I think she is actually training me... which is good looks like I need it. We have had such a great week of miracles and rain and we found out our apartment complex has a GYM WHAT THE MIRACLES I KNOW.
Fun fact of the week is that as many of you know I'm kinda a talker, and with last weeks companion jumble with lots of lessons where my companions didn't know spanish I've had to be a talker.. and so Sunday night I started losing my voice. This whole week it has been gone and to say I sound like a toad is an understatement. I have to scream to be able to have the people on the streets hear me and even then my voice is cracking and being all gross the whole time. hermana Short has still not heard what my actual voice sounds like, but someday I think I will convince her that I actually am a girl. Through all of that, it has still worked out and we've seen so many miracles and lessons LLENA DEL ESPIRITU. We are teaching a family, los fuentes, that are progressing so much. Last week they got evicted from their house, but they came to church last sunday and then were able to get back into their house for a few more weeks! It was so awesome as she told us that she knows God is blessing her because they are going to church. They came again this week and are loving it and loving feeling the spirit. They also came to our branch activity this last Saturday and we were able to show them the baptisimal font and talk to them about what their baptism will be like and the spirit was so strong. I know God has helped us to find them and has been working with them to know that this is the step they need to take in life. I am so blessed to be able to work with them! We also had another festival of finding this week where we all switched up companionships and went finding for all of Saturday. My comp was teaching all by herself in spanish and wow I'm just such a proud mom :) The attached pictures of me and Hermana Short describe our relationship pretty well and I promise we do do missionary work too ;)
I love this gospel!! I love being a missionary and sharing the message of joy with the world. I know God loves us and that Jesus Christ is there to lift us through our trials no matter what. I love being a trainer and I love being with my companion as she eats pasole for the first time and talks to strangers and it's just such a blessing to be on the Lord's errand. Have a blessed week my loved ones.
