Oh what a rain it would be ....

after our multi - zone conference - heading to work

Hola mi querida familia!

Que tal? Como le va?

This week has been great, wet but great! I don’t think Trujillo has seen this much rain in a while. But the fun part is, that when it rains, the water comes in through the roof and the walls, but only in the bathroom. And there isn’t water entering above the shower, only on the other half. So, needless to say it is an adventure to go use the bathroom.

Everyday this week it has rained at night but yesterday as we left after lunch we thought that the rain would let up soon, so we didn’t take umbrellas or anything bigger than a sweater. BUT the rain didn’t let up!! We were soaked! And we didn’t get in any houses either; but it still ended up being a great day! 

This week we have a baptism!!! Her name is Andrea! Her mom is a member and her older brother, and recently her dad gave permission for her to be baptized. All of it is thanks to the primary president, who one Sunday felt the impression to give Andrea her Faith in God booklet. Well she was showing her dad and thanks to that he gave her permission. He is very protective of her and wants to protect her during her teenage years. 

Also we are teaching Fransisca. She is awesome. She is like 60 years old, both her sister and brother in law are members of 20 years. She is a strong believer of the Bible and knows her stuff. But she has found a love for the Book of Mormon. She says that every thing makes more sense when she reads them together. She loves when we help her understand the doctrine that the Bible teaches with the Book of Mormon. And she even accepted to be baptized. So now we just have to help her realize that she doesn’t need to wait so long! We are having a family home evening with her tonight! Pray for her!!!

I love this work with everything I have! Being a missionary is such a privilege!! I am thankful for everyday and how the Lord guides us and makes miracles happen!! 

love you all!!
