Hola familia This week was super long and tough. Having to have a man with us to teach families in the afternoon is basically impossible. We had a lot of appts fall through and it was super hot. On Saturday at lunch I was thinking wow this really sucks and I want to go home, I have so much time left, I'm gonna be here for an eternity. After lunch we started a fast and I just was begging Heavenly Father to help me change my attitude and focus on being here and also to help me with my spanish, because it is really frustrating not being able to understand people. That afternoon it was super hot we didnt teach anybody we just walked around, and we were fasting, but my prayer was being answered. I didnt feel bad that we werent teaching anyone or how thinking about how hot it was,I was just happy. Right around 4 we went to visit a family thats never been home and before we got there I just said a prayer please let them be home. They were home! We read a chapter of the book of mormon with them, but it was a fight to stay awake to be honest lol. Anyways it was just a big turn around moment for me and a testimony builder.
Right now we have 5 baptisms scheduled for this month which Im super stoked for.
They are all great investigators. So I cant wait to send pictures. Our lunch pensanista is super good and I havent eaten anything here that I didnt like, except for milk with rice in it and corn is kinda nasty lol but that was with someone else. Spanish is coming along slowly. My goal is to finish the BoM in spanish by christmas. Exciting to think ill call home pretty soon :D. Overall things are pretty good down here, very calm friendly and generally receptive to the gospel. There are no gangs or anything kinda interesting, the elders are the baddest guys around here lol every once and while we see some JWs but theyre to scared to try and bible bash with the Lords Fold. Love Elder Nelson The ducks here are like super ugly hahaha like straight descendents of the dinosaurs
