Hello loved ones! As usual, I hope everyone is doing GRAND.
Wow, what a good week to be a missionary. For those of you who don't know what is going on in Venezuela, their country is passing through VERY hard times right now. There are so many people from Venezuela here, who have moved to work here so they can bring the rest of their family to Perú. Every day, we meet about 10 Venezolanos, and they are such amazing people, ready to hear about God. We are teaching about 12 people from Venezuela right now. I have been learning how to use "Venezolano slang" this week, super fun. But truly the people from that country are so amazing.
This week I got a PACKAGE from my family. I was a little too excited and opened it right away, and didn't take any pictures, but I am so thankful for my super amazing family ;)
Our ward put on a talent show this week because it was ward conference, my companion and I and 2 hermanas who are preparing for missions from another ward sang, and I don't know how it sounded, but anyways... super fun stuff happening out here in Santa Luzmila!
We have a lot of people who are progressing well, we are always trying to help them with their testimonies of the Book of Mormon!
I want to share the miracle of this last week. Yesterday, we were a little early for lunch, and we decided to go to the house of a girl we are teaching. As we were walking to her house, my companion and I felt prompted to talk to an hermana on the street with her baby. As we began to talk to her, she started crying when we asked her about her husband and her baby. She said she would come to church with us. We picked her up for church, and she loved it. Later that night at the lesson, she told us that her husband had been treating her horrible, and they separated last week and she has been left alone with her baby. She TRULY was so ready for our message, and to come to the Church of Jesus Christ. She agreed to be baptized in 2 weeks. It is amazing how our Father in heaven prepares people to meet the missionaries and puts them in our path at the perfect moment.
I truly love being a missionary. I am so thankful for the gospel and the blessing it is in my life. I love you all, and I know this church is true. I wouldn't be here if I didn't.
