I Love This Place so Much!

Madi had her baby yesterday!  A little girl! We haven’t seen her yet, but we were pretty excited for her!

Yesterday was such a good day! Saturday night I prayed that someone would just feel the desire to go to church and go.  On Sunday, an investigator, Nelli, just showed up with her three kids! We had stopped visiting her about a month ago and for some reason she just decided to go to church, even though she had never gone before! Also, Hermana Aracely Cornejo, who has gone to church for three years but never stayed the full three hours, stayed the full three hours! Tonight we are having a noche de hogar with them and with the bishop! Also, Magdalena went to church and loved it! And a couple who are both menos activos just showed up at church as well, because they decided they want to come back.  I’m so grateful Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers!

Hermana Emilce is doing so well.  The other day we went and read the Book of Mormon with her and it was amazing because she understood everything! The first time we taught her she told us how hard it is for her to understand and we had to explain a lot.  But, as she has worked so hard to come back, the spirit has really worked within her and now she understands everything! It was so incredible to see.  I know that when we draw closer unto Christ, He draws closer unto us and gives us His spirit in abundance.

This week was good, time is going way to fast.  I love this place so much, I’m still in denial about going home, I know that my Savior lives and loves me.  I’ve come to know Him and love Him so much and I’m so grateful for this time I have to be His representative.  

I hope you all have the very best week. 

Love you tons!

It Was a Really Good Sunday!

This week was really good, like always! Time is absolutely flying!  Hermano Fernando received a calling! He’s the secretary in the Sunday School Presidency! And Hermana Emilce gave her first class yesterday in the Relief Society! It was a really good Sunday!

Both Madi and Magdalena are doing really well, the ward is really helping us with them so much!

Sorry this is so short, the internet took forever to load! But I know that my Savior lives and loves me and I’m just so happy to be a missionary! 

I hope you all have the best week!

Time is Literally Flying!

This week has been crazy.  For starters, I gave my last testimony in my last zone conference!  I’m still in denial about it.

We also had a baptism! Antonela Rejas! Her Mom is active and her Dad is less active.  Her Dad is so great and I think it really helped him, he looked so happy! The spirit was really strong! I always love baptisms.  Antonela is so sweet and was so happy to be baptized.

The daughter of Hermana Emilce, a menos activo, was baptized as well.  Hermana Emilce was so happy. I know it’s going to help her so much to stay active in the church! Also, yesterday she received a calling, teacher in the sociedad de socorro! I just love her so much.

Madi is doing really well. She went to church yesterday with Hermano Carlos.  She has lots of questions, but they are good questions and she is really interested.  We think this week she is going to have her baby, which would be so awesome! She’s ready to give birth!!

We also found a great new family, Oracio and Givovanna.  They went to the baptism on Saturday, before we had even taught them a lesson, and really liked it! They are a young couple with a baby and are golden! 

We also started teaching Hermano Fernando’s younger sister, Magdalena.  She’s super great and is preparing to get baptized on the fourth of July!

We’re seeing so many miracles I can’t really keep up, but I’m so grateful! Time is literally flying! I love Bolivia so much and I love my Savior.  I am so grateful for the privilege I have to be His missionary! 

I hope you all have the best week!

CONGRATS SARAH!!!!!!!!!!  (Lundy’s sister Sarah received her mission call this week to the Nicaragua Managua North Mission) That’s pretty much all I can think right now! I’m so excited for you! haha, the mission is so great, you are going to love it so much.  There is nothing better! I cannot wait to speak Spanish with you!

This week was good.  We went to Santa Cruz on Wednesday again for our leadership meeting.   I just love that city so much! It’s always good go back!

We are visiting a menos activo who is changing so much, Hermana Emilce.  She’s going through some really hard things, but yesterday the ward was really able to help her and it was so nice to see! She is so great.  Tonight we are going to have a noche de hogar with her and the bishop and Madi y Carlos!

We also contacted the wife of a menos activo in the street the other day.  It was so awesome! We left the house a little earlier and she was the first person we found in the street! I love when that happens!

We finally were able to meet with the Familia Mendieta! I just love them so much, they are so prepared! Hermano Patricio is traveling this week again, but we are going to give him mensajes mormons so he can watch them while he is away!

Anyways, I love love love Bolivia and my Savior! I just want the time to go as slow as possible, so I can enjoy every minute! There is nothing better than being a missionary! 

I hope you all have the best week!
