Buenas Tardes, Ustedes! Como Estan?
This week wasn't too busy, but we did get in another lesson with Burt and Molly, and we will be starting Molly's baptism program soon! I'm glad her mom is taking care of it, because this is my first baptism, period... so we are happy to let Sister Ibarra take over the project. We are so excited for Molly! 2 more weeks!
Burt has now been taught the main commandments, and has no problem with keeping them, but he does drink beer once in a while before he goes to bed if his back hurts, but we are going to get him started on resisting it as much as possible.
We taught Guillermina again this week, and we were able to explain the story of Nephi and his brothers going to get the brass plans, and it was awesome! She's learning to manage her time better to find time to read and pray, and she had plans to come to church... but she ended up having family in town for a Quinceanera (15th birthday party in the Hispanic culture) for a family member. We have an appointment with her tomorrow night.
We are having Thanksgiving dinner with the Barney family, who are a big family in the ward, so we will basically be eating dinner at a family reunion, which sounds weird, but it should be fun! The elders are also going as well. So it should be interesting. We have been asked a couple times from guys if we have boyfriends or if we're married... cough cough, yes! Boyfriends for both of us in defense... Haha, it ended pretty quickly, and then we were on our way.
We also found an old former investigator who asked us to come back! Anayeli is in middle school and she was taught with her brother, but unfortunately over the summer the elders never got in contact with her for a long time. Then I remembered last night as we drove past her trailer (Hermana Taua showed me where she lived) and we stopped by! She wants us to come back tonight! So I guess that's exciting!
That's it from me today. Thanksgiving should be fun. I am excited for it, and lots of fun member dinners. We are excited to visit and enjoy meals with the members of the branch and of the ward.
It was over all a 'more or less' week, but we're happy with it! It's a great day to be a missionary, and I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity I have to train Hermana Parry, to work along side with President and Sister Lewis, and to be a missionary, a disciple of Christ. I love my job, it's the best thing I could ask for!
Tengan una buena semana, Les extrano!
