pigtails happened this week
another investigator to pray for is rocio. she came to family history class this week and is just so excited about everything! i'm so excited for her!!! i doubt i'll be staying in this area for what would be a 5th transfer, so i probably won't get to see rocio (or diomedes) baptized. (such a bummer!)
the last district meeting!!
...of the best district :)
in other news, we were talking with a 76-year-old man (manuel), the one who walked 5 blocks to church in the rain, and we mentioned that he should try to arrive at the chapel before meetings start at 9am. he replied "oh, i don't know the time." and, we were like what? he then explained "i don't have a watch." so, this man never knows what time it is!!! no clock, no phone, nothing!!! what a life. must be stress free. :) #lifehack
lastly this week, i learned an important lesson about the power of prayer. as we were walking under the hot sun (as we do most mornings), i prayed for two straight hours asking for strength to overcome sheer exhaustion. and it worked!! so well!! i made it through, just like always, but that day i recognized the hand of the Lord in getting me there.
last coordination meeting
transfer calls tonight! i'll keep you posted! LOVE YOU. BE STRONG.
More from this week's message to Hermana Wood's mom:
the mission is implementing the pants thing!!! and no, i can't buy dress pants here, haha!! so, i would love some. :) maybe like three, four pairs max. idk how often i'll use them, but that should be good!
also, i bore my testimony in sacrament meeting, possibly for the last time [in this area]; it was super sad, and i almost cried. all four of us missionaries in the ward (haymond, moreno, osorio, and i) bore our testimonies. i KNOW i'm leaving, i feel it. (in fact, i already packed one of my suitcases.) and, elder moreno, who is my best friend, has left. literally, i just shook his hand and said "goodbye." OH MY GOSH, WHAT IS LIFE. idk what i'm going to do without him. till we meeeeet, till we meeet...ugh, so sad. LOVE YOU, mom!
