Well this week was my 9 month mark and one of the traditions is to take pictures as if you are having a baby so Hermana Smoot and I took pictures. haha. It was super fun. She made my HUMP DAY super special. We ordered pizza when we came home and it was such a blast! I love the fact that Hermana Smoot goes out of her way to really make each day special. She is the best.
Anyways we had interviews this week and our President was really happy with us because we are the only ones in our ZONE that is teaching close to 10 families. Our President has really been stressing on trying to have us teach families! It is AMAZING! The love President Obeso has for us is incredible. He really is always worried for us but expects us to work hard. I really appreciate the way that he has been trying to help us.
New news, we have more investigators this week and Pamela attended church yesterday! She came with her two sons. It was so awesome!
We also went to another area this week for a whole day. It was called an invasion! The Elders that are in that area don't have ANYONE to teach. So the President told all of the missionaries in Puerto Montt to go to their area for the day and find people. Hermana Smoot and I walked and talked with TONS of people. We had more contacts in Fresia (the little pueblo is called Fresia) than in our own area. But it was so great! I had the idea to fast before we went so we could have success. We fasted all day Friday and got there Saturday. We ended up finding a member and she came with us to knock doors and talk to people. We asked people for water and to use their bathrooms just so we could get in their house to teach them! It was EXHAUSTING! But so good. I grew lots just teaching on the spot and not having any plans. I know when we teach with the spirit it really makes the difference.
I bought a new camera this week so Hermana Smoot and I took advantage and took some sweet pictures! We also celebrated St. Patrick's Day. But I missed the corn beef and cabbage that Grandma usually makes! haha. I hope you all are having a great week! Keep reading your scriptures! I cannot be preaching the gospel and telling people to read their scriptures if my own family isn't. haha. I love you all SOOOO MUCH!
Have a great week!
|Happy St. Patrick's Day!|
