This week has been well different! its always a lil rough at first getting to know a new compainon!!! haha i am sooo glad im going to get married only once in my life! noway i wana change my husband over and over again,,, haha but my new comp is sis villaroman and shes from california and shes such a darling! shes got 6months on the mission and actually i met her my last week in the ctm! i thought she was brasilian and started talking to her in portuguese in the ctm...she just looked at me haha but shes awesome!
Being senior i really have more responsibly. With sis stewart she was senior but i felt like i was senior there too haha but with sis villaroman i feel like i have to lead more, so its really good for me. i pray every night that she can help me!
Its been soooooo stinkin hot here, it hasnt rained in over a month n a half and well were suffering here. i wake up every mornin in a pool of sweat! its so hot that the price of tomatoes rose up to the price of almost 10$R....thats expensive haha
We had a baptism marked for Sunday and we were all ready and everything, but he didnt show up yesterday and we werent able to catch him at home either. so were going to work with him again this week, hes goin to be baptized dangit haha
oh i got sick...again lol iv been running a fever these past few days n was really super lightheaded, im so glad my comp is patient haha i keep thinking about that one conf talk about, nossa i forgot who said it but was talking that our spirits are so willing to work, but our bodies are weak and human. i totally felt that way this week. My spirit is a little annoyed with me i think because im so tired and weak and cant function properly haha but ill get better one day im sure of it!
So we had a spiritual experience the other day....we were talking to claudio in front of his house and a lady passed by. Her name is maria de fatima, and she started talking to us and saying really funny things haha but anyways she told us to visit her one day we said ya sure! well a few days later we went to visit claudio and he wasnt there and so i was trying to decide what to do when maria de fatima was walking home we stopped n talked to her, she talked about the book of mormon and how she wanted one again so i said okay...we’ll walk you home, im soooo glad we did! as soon as we entered the house i felt something really good! we met her brother whos already married(rare!) and we taught him the restoration! he was really receptive and were going to go there this week and teach them, we also taught her dad, she lives with her dad, and her other brother showed up a lil later too. mama we spent over 2 hrs there!! we were teaching everyone because one brother left and another showed up haha and then we were getting ready to leave and her dad whips out the guitar and starts playing and singing for us haha it was hilarious! after i sang n played a little. he said thats nice but you need to learn how do play this haha so he was teaching me a song lol it was really funny! but i felt really good about this family and really hope they get baptized!
oh yesterday during church idk why but i really started to miss home! i thought it was kinda strange, but i got to thinking that maybe this is how our Heavenly Father feels about us. its only a lil snippit of how much he misses us. i was thinking man, how many people dont even know or understand the relationship we have with our Heavenly Father, it really is sad, or even worse, the people who know the truth, were baptized but then fall away. its soo sad. i made a lil kid promise me today that he would never fall away from the church. We really need the members to help with these peole bc if they dont have support, after time their foundation gets week and starts to lean and then fall. missionaries are like a rent-a-foundation! were there to help them start and build their strong foundation, but the members are the support that help them build their towers of faith!
But anyways, done preaching! i love this work and i love being here! tell everyone i said hi and i love them so much! and in about 11 months ill see them again!
love you so much
love sis benedict
