Well this week turned out a ton better than the last one!
Tuesday we were struck blind by the tender mercies of Heavenly Father. We have been doing a lot of door knocking and referral asking the last few weeks in hopes of finding new investigators. Well we went contacting in a part of our area where we dont often go. As we did so, a family had happily received us into their house. And it turns out they are all blind. We had a really great lesson and the family prayed to know the truthfulness of our message and were excited to learn more. We returned Friday and they had a LOT of doubts, but the good thing is that they keep asking Heavenly Father to know if we are telling the truth.
Also Tuesday night we visited a sister who is 82 and also blind and has a granddaughter who is listening to us. her name is Jenny and has a baptismal date for the 26 of December. She had asked me when I was going home and when she realized that i wouldn't be there for her baptism she was so sad- as well as I. I felt so guilty and selfish for leaving her to go home, and that i wasn't going to be with her for her big day, it made me sad. But also note that we only visited blind people Tuesday.
Wednesday we did divisions with the sisters that are in Chichicastenango. And that was pretty fun. It was a lot more traveling time than work time. But it was really fun!
Thursday we finished divisions with the sisters and ate lunch and headed back to the area. Then we got back to momos at 7 and had the Noche de Hermanamiento and we celebrated Thanksgiving. There wasn't any turkey, but every family brought their favorite dish and we all shared. It was pretty cool!
Sunday was my Birthday! Thank you for all of the bday wishes! My comp was the best because she planned a whole day for me. In the morning we went to church and then after we ate lunch with the Lang family. Then we had a Christmas devotional (i forgot how to spell that one...) and it turned out really great! There was a trumpet, a violin, and videos and a ton of stuff! Also I was asked to sing a duet. It was a really fun experience! And the members said that I sing really well so ive decided that since my chances of being Hannah Montana didnt work out in the states, that maybe ill just stay here in Guatemala :) #imnevergoinghome
Then another member said he had a reference for us, but he actually had bought a cake. And then we went to another family´s house to eat and celebrate another sister´s birthday.
This week was great and I was able to think about many of the things that I am most grateful for, one of which the the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for the chance that I have to be forgiven, to become better every day, to learn and grow, and that I will be able to live with Heavenly Father again.
I love you all and hope you all had a fantastic week!
