|A baptism through our reference! This family is super-great and the dad will be baptized next week :D|
This week was super great, but quite the roller coaster too! I said goodbye to Hermana Romero (my amazing companion who can make jam out of sand), and I was called by my mission president to be a trainer. I am VERY excited about this, but also pretty darn tense. I want to be the best example that I can be for mi nuevita, but it is also a little difficult as I still can only comprehend 50% of conversations. I know that God will provide a way though, becuase when God commands, and we act in faith, we will be helped!
|My companion's farewell is this morning - It was crazy!|
This is a Christmas tree made up of Coke bottles - awesome! It is super-good marketing too!
Funny: We were in an appointment where the investigator asked me "how do your parents punish you" (as he is a father and is curious about how Americans punish their children). The word for "punish" in spanish is "castigar"...which is very close to "caridad"...which means "chastity"...Therefore, in my gringa mind I translated this as "have you taught the law of chastity to your parents." Needless to say, it is not the same:D
|Our new pensionista - I'm a GIANT ha,ha!|
|Nuestra pensionista otra vez mas. Ella es super-buena y muy amable|
I forgot to mention that this amazing women, our pensionista, is working on the 25 ways to lighten the world pamplet. The other day we helped her write a letter to her daugther. She never learned to read or write in her childhood, but is currently working on it right now. It is so cool to be able to help her, and I it really made me realize once more, how blessed I was and am to be gaining an education!
