so this week we have had some great miracles happen!!
first off... that family that is from El Salvador that we found last week... they are all getting baptized on the 28th of this month!!! soo sick!!! this happened due to the promise our mission president made to us that if we went and looked through our former book we would find 2-3 people who could be baptized in a week!!! now we didnt find them in there but we found someone else who when we went to visit them gave us the reference to go down the street a little bit!!! so that was super cool to see how god really is leading us to the people who are ready!!! she use to be super catholic and wouldnt lsay anything to the missionaries... now she is getting baptized and has stoped drinking coffee! (which is a big deal to the people from el salvador) the 13 year old girl has cancer and has to be in the hospital a lot but she and her sisters are super excited to be baptized!!! she loves coming to church!!! their grandpa turned out to be an inactive member of 30 years and now that he is going back he just tells his whole family how happy he is now!!! he told us all that when he was going to church he would always feel soo bad because he wanted his family to be there with him but his wife was super catholic. but now he says how happy he is that he is going back WITH all his family!! in just the two weeks we have been teaching them we have taught them about everynight and HNA O--- calls us her boys haha she is sooo funny!! its fun having someone to talk to from el salvador because she spanish is different so its fun saying things that my companions dont understand!! hahaha
texas is cool! there are aligators in the rivers... all the people here drive like my dad (love you)! haha jk they are worse!! it really stresses me out sometimes!!! i hate driving!! i want to be on a bike soo bad or just walking!!! or riding the bus!!! that would be better!!!
i still love my mission soo much and im soo grateful for who im becoming because of these experiences. they have truly changed me!!
thank you for all your love and support!!!
