The People Here Have Taught Me So Much

This week has probably been one of the craziest of my whole mission, but it was also one of the best! Transfers were this week and Hermana Duckardt left.  It was really sad to say goodbye, as always.  But,now I’m in a trio! haha my new companions are Hermana Mamani from La Paz and Hermana Viera from Honduras.  They are both really great--we have a lot of fun together. Everyone always asks me when my new companion is going to come and then makes a billion jokes about the three musketeers or something when they find out we are in a trio! They combined our two areas and so now we have a lot a lot of work! But I’m so grateful for it! 

We have one investigator, Andrea, that is de oro! she is the friend of the son of the stake president, who got home about five seconds ago from his mission and got right to work! She’s already gone to church two times and has accepted a date for the 28th to be baptized.  Everytime we teach her she is so accepting and so willing to pray and read and go to church! I just love her so much! We are working on meeting her family and teaching them too!

We are also working with a lot of Menos Activos and have seen so many miracles with them! One family, the Familia Gira, has come to church three times for sacrament meeting.  We’re working with the members to help them stay for the 3 hours the next week! 

This is totally random, but next time you are in a sacrament meeting be grateful random dogs don’t just wander in! Yesterday in sacrament meeting a members' dog had followed them to church and would not leave the chapel.  And then it started barking during the sacrament prayers before they could finally get it to leave! But, that is not the first or last time that will happen in my mission! 

We also did family history this week. I have gained such a strong testimony of family history.  I know there are so many people waiting for their families to search them out and take their names to the temple so that they can be an eternal family! 

Anyways, I hope you all have the very best week! I love Bolivia, the people here have taught me so much about my Savior and His love.  Through them I have learned about His love and kindness.  I am so grateful to be a missionary and to come to know my Savior more everyday!
