Soy hermana Gunter y soy mormona...jaja
I just felt like saying that...I dont know why but this week has been great. We reciently had changes and so I have a new companion named Hermana Reyes. She is from Guatemala and super little and skinny. She is super sweet and calm all the time. But she has a cute personality and very patient. She brings a great spirit into the lessons. Slowly but surely the ward is growing and this saturday it looks like we will have some more baptisms. The daughters that are like little angels of Mariela and Fernando. I am so excited.
We have found a lot of new people to teach so that is good. One of my favorites was Roberto. He is a son of another old investigator. He was sitting outside the house when we contacted him and he told us that his girlfriend had left him and was mad at him and he didnt know why. We taught him about pray and how he Christ can aliviate his pain. The next lesson we taught the restuaration. He then committed to go to church on Sunday. And to our surprise, showed up with his book of mormon is his grocery bag all ready to learn in the gates. The only problem is that he lives about an hour away in bus.
I have really notied this week the importance of actively participating in ward. We have been planning for weeks an activity for the relief society and when the hour arrived, only 2 out of 15 that we invited showed up when they all told us they could go. We even did what they wanted to. I understand that it is hard to make it sometimes but we had dedicated so much time and money to make sure it happened. But at least I got to learn how to make skirts! And it was super fun! So if I could give any advice, it would be go to your activities because someone has put a lot of time into them... and also it will help so that things arent so awkward on sundays. We are members everyday...not only on Sundays.
con mucho amor,
