One More Week!

Sorry my subjects are always so lame. I'm just not creative. haha. ANYWAYS! This week went by so fast it's honestly just all a blur to me. So I'll try to think!

Today we went to Sabbadell and played games with our Elders, the 4 Elders in Sabbadell and some members from the ward! It was super fun :) It was actually warm today! But of course now it's getting freezing...haha just our luck!!!

So investigators!

K.! I asked her to be baptized she said yes! But she needed time because her son is sick and he takes up all her time. And then she called us one day and was like sisters my son said you could come over please come! So of course we did because he never says yes! So we went to the hospital and only talked with him for about 10 minutes and then left with K. and got hot chocolate and talked! Well we were talking about baptism and she said yes but right now her priority is her son so she needs to focus on him and I just promised her that after she was baptized she would receive the Holy Ghost and that would help her with her son and she just said "how long does it take to prepare to be baptized" :) solid. We told her she could be baptized the 21st but I don't think she will because we haven't been able to meet with her so we're shooting for the 28th :) She goes to church every week and is just awesome!

M.! She's a miracle, Hermana Pace called us at 11 at night and said I have a reference for you! Uhhh okay?!!! So we went the next day (she wanted a book of mormon) and gave her one! She's super awesome but super timid about her family knowing. Unfortunately she lives in the Elders area so we can't teach her :(

But we got a reference from the Elders! It all works out! They baptized this girls sister 2 weeks ago their parents are inactive and we're teaching they're cousin (who's inactive) and her son who is super interested! The whole family!! Well she wants to be baptized but she has to get married we're working on that! But she's so amazing!!

We don't have very many. And this week was hard sometimes because I want to go and find more but my companion doesn't think it's a good idea because she wants to work through the members so it's difficult. But things are going to change soon I know it. Hermanas have been here for a year and they've never baptized, but I'm gonna change that. I'm not sure what it is about this area but it's hard. There's over 200 menos activos. It's crazy. But Saturday the ward had an activity where we went and visited all the menos activos and invited them to conferencia de barrio! A lot showed up!!! It was so exciting!!

A cool thing I learned this week is we were struggling, me and my companion were angry at each other a little, not fighting there was just a lot of tension and I went to take a shower and I was just thinking about all the things I could tell her she did wrong and was just getting angrier. Well I sat there in the bathroom, said a prayer, felt calm. Realized how stupid I was being. So I went into the room sat down next to her and said I love you What did I do wrong and how can I fix it? The tension left, she told me it wasn't me at all it was everything else. I'm so grateful for that! I know that if we take a minute to think and put aside our own wants and feelings whether we're angry or hurt the Spirit will be there and it will all be okay. That's my cool story of the week :)

Well I tried to send pictures worked for my companion and not for me. I'm sorry. My luck isn't the best!

Two girls in the ward call me's super awkward for me. They think I look like barbie and I just say nooo every time. haha Also there's a lady named Rosa and I just love her to death. She reminds me of Martha! She always makes us food and last time I went in the kitchen and helped her and washed dishes with her and REALLY tried to talk (because most the time I'm just quiet) and it was so fun :) we got so much closer and I loved it! This week I'm going to try harder to talk more! Even if I mess up and sound stupid..haha

Well I love you all!!! Sorry this was short!

Love, Hermana Terrazas :)
