this week everyone and their neighbor (literally) has wanted to plan a family home evening - noche de hogar en espanol! It's amazing - our members are on the ball, referring people like crazy and sacrament meeting was nice and full yesterday - i had a huge smile plastered on my face like a proud mom - our (not so) little Barrio Rio Tierra is growing!!!!
I don't have much time left so I'll send pics!
WE WENT TO DO BAPTISMS FOR THE DEAD WITH ANGELES! There's a new rule in the mission that we're allowed to go with our recent converts to do their first baptisms for the dead as one of our visits to the temple. it was so special. Angeles was SO excited and I had to translate everything for her :) i love it! She had to roll up the little legs of her white jumpsuit and when she came out of the changing stall aftewards she looked like an emporer penguin with her red hair standing up all crazy and a pure joy like little kid just went potty for the first time kind of smile just pure happiness and pride :) that's the only way I can think to describe it hahahaah.
We found a woman this week and her name is Lurdez, we found her tracting and it turns out she already has a Book of Mormon! Her boss is a mormon and then she cleans the house of a Mormon family and the dad of the family gave her the Book of Mormon for Christmas! She is interested in coming to church! Ah miracles!
This week I learned a lot about Hope - the worlds Idea of hope and then the Gospel's idea of hope! Here's some scriptures - Psalms 146:5
and Proverbs 28:25 - Lets get #FAT ;)
Les quiero con todo mi corazon!
