Dear Family and Friends,
Wow what a fast week! The first week of the transfer really flew by and it was full of miracles!! Monday night I went out to my old area and took some pics with my old families and told them I would still see them on sundays I just wouldn't be visiting any more which was sad but now its time for a new start once again! Change is always good here on the mission. Tuesday was my first day in the area. We had a tough day sitting with people. Its really frustrating sometimes because people will say we can come by and teach a lesson at a certain time and then we go there and they will be gone so we'll call and they'll just say well I'm at work right now! Its just like ugh! Why didn't you tell me that before! But we went and talked to the branch president, got some stuff figured out for how we wanna do service here, how we can help him and so on. Then Wednesday the same thing kinda happened too but we still had amazing miracles. We sat with a new family who accepted very well and we are excited for them! Then as we were walking trying to find people since our lessons fell through, we had an amazing experience. So we aren't allowed to eat the food on the side of the road that isn't packaged, but I saw a lady selling little cake balls and thought, we should go buy them to try and talk to her. So we did, we weren't gonna eat them, just use them to talk to her. It was good talking to her and hopefully we'll go back some day. So then we needed to get rid of the little cake balls. So we saw some little kids playing inside a super nice fenced in house and we thought, "You think we can get into that house?" Keep in mind, I've never taught in a house that has AC or a fence or windows. So we waved to the mom and she came out, we told her we were so full and didn't want the rest but thought her kids might and she was happy to accept. We then proceeded to talk for about ten minutes and found out that she was praying for 15 years to have someone like us come and answer her prayers. She was almost to the point of crying she was so happy. So we scheduled her for the next day. We then went through the rest of the day. We played this game with some of the little kids in the neighborhood. So its like this little sock ball, and two people are on the ends with one girl in the middle. The girl in the middle has a ton of flipflops on the ground that she has to flip all of them over and then flip them all back. She has to do this while the two people on the end are trying to hit her with this sock ball. If she catches it she can kick it so she gets more time but if she gets hit, then she is out. So we jumped in and played with them and they just loved it. The neighbors thought it was the best thing ever that we were playin with them. Then the next day we went back to Silvia's house (the lady we contacted with the nice house). We sat down and had probably one of the most spiritual experiences I've ever had in my life. At one point she was just crying thanking us for what we have brought her. That's all I can really say about it because it was just too amazing to explain. Through the rest of the week we spent finding new families, and working with the ones he already had. It was a week full of spiritual experiences and we are hoping we can continue that on everyweek! This next week, there will be municipial elections here. So with that, we are buying two weeks worth of groceries. I don't think there is anything to worry about but we are just supposed to tell you that incase there is fights and stuff we wont come email next week. I think all will be ok though so just incase I dont email next week, don't worry! Next wednesday is the election itself though so we aren't allowed that day so we are going to take advantage of that and have our own little thanksgiving that day! I will attach pictures of the house work and some other things. I love you all and hope you have a great week!
