Hola mi familia y amistades!
The work just keeps pushing forward here in the good ol' Fed Way, and by keep pushing forward I mean it has changed SO MUCH FOR ME. Throughout the mission I feel like I've been progressing solidly more and more and it's been hard but manageable. This week the learning curve just changed the game and I feel like those video game characters that like run into walls and then they like stand up and smile again but then they just keep running into the wall. Accurate.
This week I held my first exchange with the hermanas in Kent. Sister Training leader is a little different in the states because they have the regular STLs and then we have spanish STLs so I am just over the hermanas and my companion spanish STL is in a different companionship. It's hermana huhem and she's actually in graham with hermana souza and hermana mcgarity! Which means I get to go on exchanges with Hermana Souza and Hermana Mcgarity as well! SCORE I GET TO GO BACK TO GRAHAM. I am so excited and I've missed hermana souza loads!!!! That should be fun. Anyways so we did an exchange with Kent but it was my first exchange and I was kinda stressed and mostly didn't know what I was doing so we forgot to tell them to make sure they switched phones and then after we switched companions and started driving away we realized that me and hermana livingston had both phones... not good news. We had to drive all the way back to Kent and try and find the hermanas which didn't work because hermana livingston was also brand new to the area and didn't know where she lived. So half of the exchange was us driving around in Kent but it's okay because we found them and were able to come back and still have a good rest of the exchange :) Maybe someday I'll get better at those, I hope God forgives me. This week we also had MLC, talk about a change of learning curve... all such great missionaries there I was overwhelmed. we had two members of the missionary department come and teach us! Brother King and Brother Gonzalez, IT WAS AMAZING. I was spiritually chastized so much and I just realized I have so much to do in my life and in my mission to do better. Brother King works for the missionary department in their like communications committee and he was in charge of the light the world campaign and he also showed us the videos for the churches easter campaign, we were the first people to see the OFFICIAL video! It will be launched May 31before general conference. Get excited people, it is so good and Jesus Christ is the most AMAZING HUMAN BEING. #PrinceofPeace
We have seen so much progress in the work this week. Laticia, Destiny, and Monae Fuentes are all progressing so much! This was their 3rd week at church in a row and every week they just get so excited and so happy for church. They know how much it blesses their lives, especially with all these hard things going on for them. WE taught them Word of Wisdom and Laticia literally went into her kitchen and brought out all her tea and asked "which of these can I drink and which do I need to throw away?" WOW I COULDVE CRIED. She is so prepared and just so willing to change her life to come closer to the Savior. I love the power that His atonement has. Their date is tentatively for Marzo 25. Lots of prayers that they can continue to progress for that day :) We also started teaching another family, Tony, David, and su esposa. We set an appointment with them and then earlier that day Tony texted us and said "we are making you dinner for the appointment tonight do you like tortas?" and we were like Tony don't worry you dont have to make us food! He said "too late, already bought the stuff". more or less translated as such. BUT THE TORTAS WERE SO GOOD. And they all want to be baptized!! Tortas and Baptisms, does it get much better than that?
I love my Savior and I love the chance I have to share his beautiful and glorious message with the world here in Federal Way! Estoy agredicida que tambien puedo predicar su Evanglio en espanol y trabajar con estas personas que son tan marivillosas. Que Dios los bendiga esta semana!
