This week we saw some great miracles! On Wednesday we has exchanges with the hermanas of barrio 2. I was with Hermana Carrillo from Columbia. That day we went to a part of the ward that we don’t normally work in and we contacted a few references there and we knocked a few doors. Well I felt am impression that we should try a few of the houses on a little dirt road. So we went and in the first house that we tried we found and man and a woman that let us into their house and told us that they need many blessings in their lives. They told us about several problems that they have been facing and it was incredible how they opened up to us. We mostly just listened to them and now we know what their needs are and how the gospel can truly help them overcome them. It was a great blessing to find them because we have been struggling with finding new people to teach. Also, that day we went to visit Teresa and she accepted a baptismal date!!!! I am so happy! We have been praying and working with her a lot to accept a date. She said that she is still not 100% sure that she has received her answer yet, but that she will prepare to be baptized the 11th of July. I know that she will get baptized that day. It will take a lot of work but I know that it is her time.
Friday was a great day! In the morning we went with a few other missionaries to the Plaza San Martin and we sang hymns and talked with people passing through the plaza. It was a lot of fun and it was great to see how people were more receptive with the hymns. We were able to get many references for different missionaries in the zone. It was a success and we are planning on doing the same thing next week in the hospital.
That night we organized a ward activity. It was a great success! Lot of members, less actives and a few investigators went and everyone had a good time. It was a noche de hogar mixed with a birthday party for all of the birthdays in June. We played some fun games that all related with our message of unity and service. Everyone was laughing and participating and our investigator (Virginia) fit right in. We will be having more ward activities because they work well to create unity and they are a lot of fun!
So funny/ crazy/ weird things that have happened this week...
The other day we were walking along the street at about 8 at night and we saw an old lady in her night dress carrying a giant stick (like the whole 10 foot branch of a tree) walking down the middle of the street! We got closer to her and asked her if she needed help. She looked at us surprised like "why on earth would you think that I need help?" said "no", dropped the giant stick on the ground and walked back and entered her house. It was so bizarre. We laughed for about the whole night about that.
We also talked with a woman on the street that was eating a bar of candy, with 2 other bars in her hands and she told us that she had diabetes. It was so incredibly hard not to bust up laughing in her face. After we turned the corner the two of us just dyed laughing.
Oh the adventures in San Rafael with Hna Harris!!
Well I love you all so very much and I hope that you have a great week!!!
