hello hello mi familia!
Sounds like everyone had a great week this week! i cant believe its already february. wow time is flying. we are already half way through this transfer. i am sending this late because we were in internet this morning and i had just finished reading my emails when the whole place lost power haha. but we left and decided to go as a zone to eat at chilis!! but while we were waiting for our food the power went out. can you believe it? they were still able to bring us our food and it was so delicious! i had fettuccini alfredo! ah i wanted to die it was so good. and so now we are back and have a few minutes to write emails.
This week has been so great but so stressful. we have been working like crazy and i am sooooo tired at the end of every day (at the beginning too haha). but it is all worth it because we are seeing so much success. i have really noticed a big improvement with my spanish the last 2 months. i can understand basically everything now and can say what i want. what i still need to work on is vocabulary because there are millions and millions of words and sometimes when im telling a story or talking about things other than church i dont have a very big vocabulary. but i feel a lot better about spanish now than i did before. we had interviews with president this week and he was talking to me in english and asked me to say a prayer and i started in english and literally could not pray in english. and then when he would ask me a question in english i just automatically answered in spanish. i am going to be SO AWKWARD when i get home because i cannot speak english!
For our tarde blanca we have a goal of 5 baptisms for every companionship in our zone. so we have been seaching like crazy for new investigators and helping our investigators that we have to progress. and we have 4 baptismal dates now!! anna, yair, melody, and paula. we know that the lord has been helping us in every way because without him we would not have been able to find these people. but now that they have made this decision to be baptised satan has been constantly putting doubts into their head. it is not going to be easy but i know that if they keep reading and praying everything will work out.
And i have to speak in stake conference the 16th of feb! ah i am so nervous. the stake president asked that 2 missionaries speak and so one of the zone leaders is going to speak and then the zone leaders chose me to be the other speaker. i just hope that i can get my message across and that the people can understand me and feel the spirit. but im nervous! so wish me luck!
Overall things here are going good in libertadores. we are seeing progress everyday and time is passing so quickly. i really cannot believe it is february. i hope everyone has a great week and i can't wait to hear from you all next week
