Bom Dia minha amor,
I just have to start by telling you one more time, how much i love training.. Seriously.. It is such a blessing. I love my two greenies. They speak really well and have a power testimony. I love serving with them.. Last week was a learning experience for sure.. I am not exactly what i am supposed to get out of it, except for the fact that i need to strengthen my relationship with my savior.
A lot of our appointments fell through this week and we couldn´t teach lessons, we were just praing with a lot of people in the street and in their homes. All the people we wanted to mark for baptism either weren´t home or they literally ran from us. We were working with a mom and her daughter last week and we were trying to prepare them for baptism but the moment we brought up baptism. they got all weird. We marked an appointment with them on Friday and pased by to teach them and the moment they saw us walking to their door they ran from us and their neighbors lied for them and told us that they left the city and went to Lisboa. I had no idea what to do because i knew that we needed to talk to them about their baptism on Sunday, so we prayed and left their house.. We tried to go back and visit them on Saturday and they did the exact same thing.. they ran from us.. We saw them, called out their name and they kept running. It was so frustrating.. That has not happened to me yet in the field. ha ha all you can really do is laugh and make another surprise visit when they aren´t expecting you.. ha ha so we went to go pick them up for church yesterday and the mom came but the daughter didn´t. They already know the church in São Tome.. (sorry i don´t know how to say it in english) but the word baptism freaked them out just a little bit.. We are hoping they will continue to let us come back and teach them. Luana is the daughter and she has had many great questions about god and life itself and we want to get her involved in young womens. She is 14 years old and has so much to offer the girls in our ward. We´re hoping things will get better this week.
Irmã Walton and Irmã Gutierrez are teaching me a lot. You know they are fresh from the MTC and remember a lot of the good points from he counsel of the professors and apostles that spoke to them.. We are really just trying to stay humble and do the will of the lord. Through our obedience we will continue to see miracles and we will see this work progress. I am excited for what is yet to come. It is blessing to me serving with these two girls. It´s a testimony confirmation that heavenly father knows me and he knows who i need to be serving with exactly in this moment. He truly lives and knows us individually.
I hope you all continue to be good examples to your friends. Just live one day at a time and never be worried about what others think. you should be more occupied with what heavenly father thinks. Love you all.
oh p.s. did elder and sister Lund call you?? They said they would because they like to give our parents updates on how we are doing. They are a sweet couple that is serving in my area.. Love them. hope you got to chat with them for a bit.
