Hola Mi Bonita Familia!
Wow looks like Utah was a fun time! Thanks for the pictures, loved seeing everyone. Oh yeah okay so kind of sad but I didn’t know it was Easter until like Thursday! Hahaha SO HAPPY EASTER!
Yeah Easter here was interesting. Friday we had a ward activity (talent show) but before that we literally were walking all over Perico trying to find people. It really was so weird it was like ghost town and we literally had no luck. Then we walk over to the church and in the middle of the street there was like a play of the Crucifixion and like a mob of 300 hundred people watching. So yeah we found the people Hahaha very interesting!
So this week we’re having trying to find new people to teach because we have very few and literally I’ve never walked so much in my entire life. I told my comp this week was the record for walking in the mission for me. Not to much success, but at the end of the week we did see some milagros!
First off, Matias was FINALLY baptized! Yay! Literally he is the most prepared person I’ve taught on my mission. “Born to be Mormon” hahaha. His baptism was really great too! When he came out in his white clothes I felt the Spirit so strong. That has never happened to me before....l could just feel that Heavenly Father was so happy :) it made me happy. Also it was his 18th birthday and after the baptism his mom invited us over to his grandparents house for empanadas. Not going to lie we were a little scared because 1. The grandparents are not supportive of Matis becoming “a Mormon¨ because they have heard a lot of things that are not true...the usual. We could only stay for a few minutes but it was good and we were able to talk to his family. Then the next day at church Matias said that he invited his mom and she almost came and he also wants her to take the lessons! We love his animos to share the gospel its great!
So the drama with the familia Cuezzo. We tried to call Susana to set up another appointment, but she didn’t answer our calls. So we called Gloria (her mom) and she said we could visit her but that Susana doesn’t want to take the lessons anymore :( literally my heart broke. I asked if it was because we invited her to be baptized and she said yes....so yeah that was a little sad. But we went Thursday to teach Gloria and her other daughter Magaly and also the hijo se Susana was there too, Emiliano! We showed them Finding faith in Christ and at the end, everyone was in tears. We bore our testimony and then Magaly said “I feel like God loves me so much” and then Gloria said, “thank you for coming and showing this...I was about to leave the discussion like Susana but now I want to continue.” It was so good! We decided to share the video because it’s all from the bible and I think that really helped them understand that we are not ¨Mormons¨ but that we are Latter-day Saints in The church of Jesus Christ. The same Jesus Christ that the Catholics believe solomente tenemos the restored gospel :)
My companion still makes me laugh a lot and is doing well :) we totes wrote a 10 sec rap poem thing for the ward activity and it was embarrassing for sure but also really great. Also my camera kind of is broken for the moment. It fell off the table and the lens is stuck and so I can’t take pictures. We found a place that says they can fix it, so that’s good! Mom I think Matis tried to send photos to your face book or mine not sure.
Have a great week! Can’t believe this week is official hump day! This mission thing is going by so fast!
