We had transfers wednesday and I went on a bus with 3 other missionaries from our zone who were being transfered too. we got to watch hunger games 2 on the bus!!!!! The best movie yet!
I am now in Godoy Cruz with hermana Lloyd. She is from Utah and just finished her training. She is struggling with spanish and I am kinda the main teacher in the lessons now which is the complete opposite than with hna Cerrato and I. I have so much more responsibility which is a little stressful but it is heping me become a better missionary. But hna lloyd is a hard worker, and I think we will be ok together. We have already had some great experiences and I am super surprised with how much I can actually understand and how good my Spanish actually is. Yes I have a LOT of room to improve but I am getting there!
We have had some great experiences with el es la dadiva (He is the gift video). The best one so far was with a less active member who has not gone to church in years. She started crying when she saw the video and she thanked us for having such strong spirits, and told us that she will try and come to church this week.
We also had a great experiene with an investigtor named Alicia. The sisters have been teaching her for 7-8 months now! Hermana Lloyd was thinking about droping her but we were going to give her 1 more chance. So we went and we ended up just listening to her concerns about the church and her doubts about it being the only true church. we were able to bare our testimonies about the priesthood and the spirit was so strong in that moment. She started off asking a ton of questions but at the end she just ended up saying that it all makes sence. She agreed to start really praying about baptism and start preparing for it. Today we are going to visit her with some brothers from the ward to give her and her sick husband blessings. Hopefully she will see the power of the priesthood in action and will gain a strong testimony of it.
On Thursday we had the mission christmas party. It was with half of the mission. It was super fun. we played volleyball, water games, a piñata and we got a visit from santa! Santa and Mrs.Claus were an elderly missionary couple. But pres and hna Goates gave every sister a necklace and every elder a tie for Christmas. It was super nice of them! We then ate some lunch and watched some funny skits from the elders. Pres and Hna Gotes acted out the song I saw mommy kissing santa with all the office elders in front singing the song. It was funny but a little uncomfortable at the same time hahaha But overall a great party and a nice break.
I love you all sooooo very much and i AM SUPER EXCITED TO SEE YOUR FACES IN 3 DAYS(Skype)!!!!
