Last Post for the Mission

Wow, how does the time fly...? But I’m not going to bore you all with a sob story about my last week... Life is amazing (:
This past week, was nuts, literally nuts, but it was fun as well! Hermana Vieiralves and Hermana Flowers came and lived with us for like 4 days. They came last Monday and on Thursday they left. We helped them find a new house, and they are all good now! It was super fun to have them and spend some more time with them. Hermana Vieiralves is one of my best friends in the mission, so it was great!
Also this past week we were able to talk with Ezequiel, and we invited him to get baptized and he accepted. So we are preparing him to be baptized on the 3rd of December.(:
We walked a lot this past week, and it was hot, ano it was another week in the mission ha-ha. But no, it was super good. We met Yanina, she is like 25 and her little girl and her partner. She is super great. We taught about the restoration of the gospel and she said, ¨I believe it ¨ and was super receptive!
We are teaching familia Acuna and we found out this past week that the dad was baptized when he was 10! They now have 3 children. We are teaching them all and they are super great!

Today for Pday we went and ate lunch with Familia Caceras. Do you remember them? From Barrio Tacuari? About 10 months ago?? They are like my favorite people and I was able to eat lunch with them today. It was so exciting. I love that family! And we all cried when we said good bye, but heck, they are amazing and I am so grateful that I could see them before I leave!
This next week we are going to work as much as we can to work until the last day! Saturday another sister who goes home with me is coming to stay with us, Hermana Mejia, and on Sunday at 2pm we have to be in the mission home. We are going to have a dinner and all. Then next Monday we go to Iguazu!!! And on Tuesday I get on the plane, and Wednesday I get home! But we are not thinking that much in that part (;

I love the mission and I could definitely stay longer, but God needs me in other places. But I can honestly say that I love this work. God knows us and knows what we need and he wants to help us in everything we do! This church is true, and it is Jesus Christ’s church, I have no doubt about that!

Many Reading the Book of Mormon

This past week! 

This past week was really great. I learned a ton. Even when you are finishing your mission you continue to learn sooo much! 

This past week our investigator, Alicia, told us that she is carrying her Book of Mormon in her bag with her everywhere and that this past week she carried it with her as she took her son to a choir practice in his Adventist church. She was there and she was reading the Book of Mormon trying to cover up the cover so that the people couldn’t see. ha-ha  

Then, Itati is reading the Book of Mormon also and she said that she really likes it. This past week we talked about the word of wisdom. She had a lot of questions and she wants to follow it, and she is praying to see if she should be baptized! 

We also found Yessica who is an old investigator of the Elders from like a year ago. She is 16 and she is super cool! And she is now reading the Book of Mormon! We invited her to be baptized on the 3rd of December and she said yes! So we are working a lot with her, she is super great! 

Blanca, is like 40 and has 6 kids. She is so great and is reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. 

This past week we got a referral from a sister in a different ward. It is her nephew. She sent us there. He is a 20 year old kid. He has problems with drugs and is kind of a vago, as we say here. So we went by to see him. He lives with his grandparents. We talked to him and he was super nice, and super receptive and we made another date to go by. The member’s sister sent us a text message afterwards that her mom (the grandma of the kid) called her and was crying the whole time and was so thankful that we had passed by and that we are going to visit her nephew. The grandparents are evangelical, but this is an opportunity for all of them to find the restored gospel! But the text message from the sister was super touching, and you realize how much the people need our help! 

We have been dejando investigadores and finding new ones, and we have found some really good ones! 

All is well!

Oh, today we received a call from the assistance that four sister missionaries had been kicked out of their house and needed a place to stay. So two of those sisters, beginning this afternoon, are coming to live with Hermana Huarcaya and I, for probably like 2 weeks, and the other two are going to rent a little place from a member. Crazy!!! So these will be some random weeks to come!
