Family!Wow this was one of the best and hardest weeks of my mission. I am sooo tired, mentally and spiritually drained!
The next family was pure coincidence, which remember I don't believe in. We knocked on the wrong door and asked for a Julia and the daughter of 31 years old ( with her FAMILIY) a little confused told us she had lived there but has passed away 2 years ago and seemed pretty hurt still talking about it. She told us her mom Julia was a member, then she just let us in and she taught a great lesson with her family too! And she came to church this week! I have never seen so many miracles in just one week! But its also been so draining cause now their all I think about and how we can help them. I'm so worried about them every second. Its getting tiring. ha.
The other thing I've been struggling with is changing how I teach these people. They don't really have a social background and don't have very much education. Especially all the parents here and its so hard to come down to that level and be able to teach them. Its like teaching year olds. But whenever I get in these slumps I feel my answer is always the spirit. ANYONE can feel the spirit. Even kids! And the spirit will be what teaches them not what we actually say. So that has been our focus for these familias. especially these Mamitas! Which also remember that crazy language I told you about. Everyone over 70 here that's all they speak. We have a sunday school class just in Quequa. I've actually been learning a little bit. I can say ¨Manca, Nuqa kani nañay Nielsen ¨ (Hello my name is hermana Nielsen)
But yeah its been a great week! so much to do! but I'm loving every second and every day more and more! Hermana Bott and I are ready to see some great miracles this change.
Im actually really excited we both are going to pass our birthdays together ( hna bott is the 15) and christmas!!
I love you guys soo much! I love testifying that this gospel will bless there lives and families because it has blessed mine! AND IT IS SO TRUE! You guys are the best!
