haha this week was CRAZY! i feel like it was so slow yet so fast! we accomplished a lot and not so much! i just felt like I was in a dream the entire time!!!
 Welp! this week was fun to say the least tho! We have been focusing on the inactive members of the ward and having them help in our missionary efforts! it has been pretty great! we were able to visit many families and we actually had 5 of them in church all 3 hours yesterday!!! how amazing it was for me!! they all enjoyed it and one family even paid tithing! holy cow i was amazed!!!
pues... this week we had training for all the sister missionaries around the city! there were many! it was a blast! there have been many problems in our mission with obedience and people being transfered and going home sooo ... we had a time of humility and help i guess haha no se en ingles haha! But i want to share a scripture that we read in this conference and i honestly love it! my favorite verses of all time are in this chapter but now its just my favorite chapter lol Alma 26! it talks about our work as missionaries and that we are fortified by the Lord.... (does that make sense in english? haha)  missionaries and those who are preparing for missions read this chapter and verse 27 is so inspiring! i love that we have our Savior Jesus Christ as our help in all times, that at anytime we are feeling anything that we can not handle on our own that He is ALWAYS there! and I LOVE verse 35 y 36 they are my strength these scripture are why i am here on my mission! Because i have faith in my God and i know that through God i can do all things! and He is loving and merciful and He only wants whats best for us in all times because DIOS NOS AMA!!!! :) un otro escritura i love tambiĆ©n es en Romanas 10:14-15 oh how i love the strength in this scripture that us as missionaries and members a like... because without the help of members this work would be incredibly hard but that Lord rejoices in our work for the salvation of His children and He will help us along the way of our route!!! I pray everyday and night that the angels working a long side me are my grandpas cause i definately need their help and i know that they really wanted to serve and now is their chance!! :)
 welp for some reason i was FREEZING during the nights this week and i couldnt sleep for like 3 nights it was horrible so we had to move my bed because i was under the window and we are all good now i can sleep without freezing  ok bueno... pues we had an activity saturday in the center of tlacolula and we played the testaments for all the people to see but not many people showed up! haha only ward members from our area none from the elders and 2 of our inves. was a doosy and the movie stopped working at the end when Christ came....
bun bun bun BBUUUUNNNNNNNN the baptism of JAVI!!!!! oh man was it amazing!!! we had many trials! we were late, we forgot like a million things, the hot water came out completely dirty after we already had the font a quarter of the way full so we had to drain it! but hermana was in the font cleaning and the floor was wet, obviously and she slipped and fell and was COMPLETELY soaked... not gunna lie we both died laughing for like 20 minutes but it was bad! then the family came and it was gorgeous! Javi was SOOOOOOO excited haha he kept saying LISTOOOOOO (READYYYYY) and he kept saying JAVVVVIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! haha it was the best! i dont think i could of asked for a better sunday!!! we were having a hard time with the water cause it was really cold so it took a couple tries (like 5), tears of javi saying yo quiero (i want), and 2 men to get him all the way in!!!! it was gorgeous! he was so happy and so was his family! definitely something i will cherrish FOREVER!!!!
I am so grateful for this gospel in my life. I am grateful for the joy and strength it gives me! becuase just this week i've had really hard trials with my favorite family... the consecos, they are like my family away from home,  telling me that the catholic life is for them and that they don't want to hear the gospel and that hurt me so bad because i know that they have the evidence of the truth in their hands they just wont read and say their prayers! it is hard but i know that the Lord has his timing for everything as well as they have their agency! i am so grateful for the times i've had here in Oaxaca and there is no other place i'd rather be!!!!!
Your One and Only,
Hermana Bigelow
