Week 36: “I would that ye should come unto Christ…”

“…who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and OFFER YOUR WHOLE SOULSas an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved” (Omni 1:25). I’m starting a new transfer this week! WOOOOOOT. We are both staying here in Costanera yesssssssssssssssssssssss. This area is the best. This transfer I want to give my all to this work. My last two transfers have been hard with my back, but I am hoping this transfer I will be able to work like a normal missionary again :).

This week was crazy. Every week has been crazy out here in the Costanera hahaha. But what can you do?

First of all the STLs moved in with us on Monday and then moved back out on Thursday, and it was crazy!!!!!!!

messy apartment
This is what greeted us when we got home Monday night.

My district leader and his companion had to carry all the stuff up the stairs to our apartment by themselves, and then they had to take it all out on Thursday. It has been crazy.

This is what we got home to Thursday when we came home for lunch hahahaha.
But the good news is that the STLs don’t live with us anymore! Yay!  We love them so much, but it was definitely a bit crowded.

Bueno. We also started teaching A FAMILY this week. The dad is menos activo, and then he has a wife and 3 kids who aren’t baptized. They have potencial so we will see where that goes. We also taught a girl who is 8 years old, and she is having lots of family problems, and really really wants to find the true church. She is really cute. Her name is Luz. We also visited Liliana, a recent convert, a lot this week. She is the best! We watched a bunch of General Conference with her. Other than that we did A LOT of contacting. We are searching for new people to teach hahahaha. Hopefully this week we will be able to work like normal missionaries and see some success 🙂

Physical therapy is going well. Today I am going to go to my last session. YAY! But I think it helped to go, so we will see what happens 🙂 We had a lot of fun in therapy. My therapist’s name is Franco, and he likes to go to raves and do drugs hahaha but we are going to give him a Libro de Mormón today and it is going to change his life 🙂 All the people who go at the same time as us love us hahaha. We have a friend named Belen, and it was her birthday on Thursday, and she came in on Friday just to bring us cake hahaha she didn’t need to come to therapy or anything ahahaha.

Anyways to finish this crazy week we are in a trio. One of the hermanas is going to train, so she had to come stay with us yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It has been fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun. YEET. Fiesta.

Love you all lots!

Bruise-spotted,
Tired, swollen knees
She humbly offers
All she is
To her Master,
Who saved her.

Elder Henriquez, who was the Elder in charge of the health of all the missionaries, goes home today, which is sad for us because he is our friend. I talked to him A LOT.
