This week was super good!! This week is also transfers and Sister
Alvarado and I are staying together in Riverton!!! Haha this is the
first time that I will stay in an area for more than 3 months and it
is also the first transfer that I won't switch companions! Miracles
everywhere! haha but we are super stoked to stay in Riverton :)) there
is so much work to be done!
Highlights of the week:
1) We had breakfast with the Oviedo family!! AH I love them so much.
They are so excited for their baptism in 2 weeks!! They made us kind
of a normal American breakfast (eggs and sausage and a grilled ham and
cheese sandwich/bagel thing) but they also signed up on our food
calendar to feed us dinner the day after their baptism :)) que cute!
Hopefully we can go to Temple Square with them this week!
2) We went to Temple Square with Gris and Diego! We went on Saturday
night with them (it's a young couple that we are teaching) and their
two kids and another young couple from our ward. I'll send pics! Haha
also it was kind of awkward because we were trying to take pictures in
front of the temple and there were probably at least 10 different
weddings going on....hah it was fun. But they loved it a lot and were
really touched by the "God's Plan for Families" video :) hopefully we
can help them progress toward baptism this transfer!
3) Our homeowner, Sister Koch, is so cute and made us some really good
salads for lunch on Thursday since we aren't allowed to eat lunch at
home anymore. :// I don't know if I told y'all that, but President
Lansing said that we could be saving more time during the day to use
for proselyting so we have to make a lunch or buy something everyday
now. It's so hard...any suggestions for quick lunches that we can make
at night to use for the next day??
4) On Friday night we had an awesome miracle! We had planned to
contact a couple families, but none of them were home. We weren't sure
what to do next, so we prayed for guidance. One investigator in
particular came to both of our minds, so we went over to her apartment
complex! As we were pulling into the complex, we saw two Hispanic
ladies sitting outside talking. We quickly parked the car and went
over to talk to them. They both were members, but one of them had just
arrived from Costa Rica the day before and really wanted to go to
church, but didn't know where the church was and doesn't have a car!
We gave her all of the information about it and before we left she
said "sisters, thank you so much! I had been praying ever since I got
here that God would send me some missionaries or members to help me
find a church..and here you are!! God answers prayers. Thank you for
being tools in His hands for me." It was so sweet! I love being a tool
in God's hands— for every single one of His children whether they are
members or not!
Love you all! Remember who you are!!
