well this week has been incredibly hard let me tell you!! but lets just say that we have been seeing miracles in the people we are teaching despite the hardships! one story of this week that is completely a miracle! we on Saturday were walking basically running cause we were late for our lunch appointments and we heard...(ill translate in english haha) ¨SISTERS!!!¨and we were like what??? and this lady said you are missionaries right??¨umm yeah and she asked us if there was family home evening in the chapel in the evening and we said no and she said well i talked to the bishop and he said that there is a baptism today and i want to go because I want to see what is like cause i just really want to be baptized! and i was like hmmm have i seen you before are you one of our inves. well i was thinking this! but we asked for her name and nope I've never seen here or taught her and she said well i just moved here yesterday from puerto and I've only met with the missionaries twice but I'm ready! well it turns out she went to the baptism with us and she just lost her husband this past week she is only 27 years old and has a 8 yr old son! they are looking for peace in their life and she moved here to be with her family but she assisted the services yesterday and feels the peace she needs! i cant wait for our appointment with her tomorrow!!! her name is Belen! also this weekend we have a baptism of our inves Javier and no joke he is Heath Flake but Mexican hahahaha and angie with heath ... i don't know i cant see it but we´ll see!!!!
