Week 62 - (August 15)

I´m going to apologize right now first because this is going to be long and second for my English.

First we missed two days of work because we got to go to our mission counsel. It was awesome. There are a bunch of new district leaders and so they were invited too. There was about a fourth of our mission there. the zone leaders, sister training leaders, district leaders and the missionaries in the office and president may. President talked to us about 7 things that we can do to have the spirit. He told a bunch of stories from his mission and it was awesome. They are seriously great people. The assistants talked and then my companion and I got to talk. We talked about how to be a Sister training leader and our responsibilities. We then traveled 7 hours back to our sector. We had to do a few intercambios with the Hermanas that we are over this week so we didn’t have much time to work in our sector. The 12 sisters that we are over live in two other houses. One house is about an hour from our house and the other is about 30 minutes. We get to work with all of the sisters in the south! It’s been cold and it just started the rain streak. I don’t think we will see the sun for like 10 more days. Actually hey dad Hermana Nelson and I had an intercambio this week! the one that you found her blog hahaa she’s super awesome.

We had SUCH a cool miracle on Sunday. So Saturday night we were planning our day Sunday. a lot of our visits fell through so we were searching through the former investigators in our area book and planning to visit a few. we made a paper of their directions and put it away. Sunday morning, we called to confirm with the people who had committed to come to church and they alllllll fell through. so we got ready super-fast to go to the chapel to look for people we got contact and bring them in for sacrament. we were praying to leave and we felt like going back into our room. we saw the paper of the old investigators and put it in our bags. we couldn’t find anyone interested outside of our chapel and so we entered to take the sacrament. we were sitting there and we were super sad. right after sacrament ended we looked at each other and we had both thought of a name (Carolina Rios a name on the little paper) we felt impressed to go and knock her house. we left after the sacrament and found her house. we knocked and knocked and finally a head popped out. we obviously had woken her up and she was super confused. We said Carolina? We are the missionaries and she goes yeah I know! one sec! she then opened the door and told us to go in. she asked us how we knew her name and we explained the paper and how 10 minutes ago we felt super strongly to leave church and knock her house. she almost started crying and started telling us how 3 days ago she couldn’t stop thinking about the missionaries who had passed by her house a year ago. She told us that her friend this week invited her to her church and Carolina said no her friend then told her to look for the path and church that god wants her to take. She said the first thing that came to her mind was the Mormons. We explained the spirit and invited her to church (there was a meeting of a different ward 2 hours later) but she wasn’t too sure she said that she will think about it. We left and said a prayer to first give thanks and then to pray that she could feel the need to be there. We went back to church and listened to the end of gospel principles. We walked out and Carolina was standing there!!!!!!!!!! We ran to her and she stayed for sacrament of the other ward. At the end we asked her how she felt and she told us it was an answer. We challenged her to be baptized and she accepted. She is a single mom of 5 children. I love her already. we made a goal with my comp to never let a Sunday pass without someone in the church. I know that when we do our part Heavenly Father does his part. He loves us. I love him and you guys.
