How are you all! I hope you have a wonderful Labor day! I hope you remember how much I love you!
To answer some of your questions, yes, I have a washing machine! I have been washing all my clothes by hand although I did take some of them to a Laudromat twice.
|Asado Lays. Yes, they do exist.|
|Have I told you how this woman is the daughter of the|
Relief Society President in Bragado? She filled me in on
Sunday that David and Cecilia went to the temple Saturday.
|I think you already heard that we had a Relief Society activity|
on Saturday and each ward had a decade. We were the 40's
(totally the classiest) and so we dressed up the best we could.
These are our 40's faces as we tried not to laugh.
|This is the back of my planner. It's there to remind me|
what life used to be like before I had blisters on my
toes and my legs were killing me. LOL
Here's what's going on here in BAW!
Although we had a few discouraging days without much success this week it seemed that the Lord blessed us with tender mercies to help us have animo to keep going. On Thursday we had a few lessons fall through and were a little discouraged but that evening we were finally able to have a lesson with a woman named Lorena and her daughter Areseli. They had listened to the hermanas before and like our visits but don't have great desires to act upon what they learn. We talked to them about eternal families and the blessings of the temple. Lorena was really touched by the idea of having her family forever and felt the spirit but when it came time to make a commitment she second guessed herself and began to give excuses. We knew that she had felt the spirit, however, and were extremely bold in responding to her doubts. It was a wonderful moment of feeling the power of the spirit in our words as missionaries. I hope we will be able to help Lorena act upon the knowledge that she now has but I will be able to know that we fought for her salvation.

"hurry and get posed before the picture flashes" face.
Before lunch we had our first lesson with a street contact named Tito. We said hello to him in the street and he stopped and asked us if we are from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He then proceeded to tell us that he had been to church two weeks before! He told us he is searching for more peace and direction! We were able to teach him on Saturday and when we invited him to be baptized he looked at the picture of Christ's baptism and said, "Yes, that is the true baptism." He literally is a blessing that just fell from the heavens and we are so incredibly grateful! I can't wait to see his progression.
Hermana Millet and Hermana Rohm
|Hermana Rohm finished her last month celebration|
so we bought some really expensive ice cream.
It was sooo good. We may or may not have eaten
the whole thing in one sitting. :)
I love you soooo much!
