so this week we had divisions with the hermana leaders on thursday. i love them because i honestly learn sooo much! they are precious hermanas. i stayed in las flores and hermana madrid came with me. she is in my group so we have been here in the field the same time but i still learn sooo much from her. shes trying to learn english so that was fun practicing with her!
well it was halloween! we stayed in at 7 pm because of all the parties and made sugar cookies with a members toaster oven! they were divine. we also got to go to bed super early which was super amazing. one day i want to come back for dia de los santos and celebrate at the park with all the members! it sounded so fun.
saturday was the actual dia de los santos and holy cow no one was home because everyone and their dog go to paint the graves and put flowers in the cementary we ended up finding a less active drunk on a bench with a new convert taking care of her. we helped her home because it was freezing and she couldnt walk without support....we got her home then were walking the new convert mishel back home and her drunk uncle started chasing us. it was actually pretty scary. but finally he just turned around. we couldnt run too much because the dogs here would attack us. they freak out on runners...so we just called it a night jaja
sunday was probably one of the best days on my mission. we had family rodriguez and juana and leslie at church. so in total there were 10 investigators in the chapel. what a miracle. fasting and prayer are such a blessing and we are seeing the miracles.all the little children in family rodriguez loved church and especially the primary.also sonia the drunk less active we had to take home came to church! it was the first time i had seen her in the chapel since being here. she brought her daughter in law eva too.
so today a cut my hair......dont worrry i just chopped off the dead ends and the sun made them so horrible so it needed to be done anyway. my hair feels so healthy now. its always nerve racking getting it cut here in guatemala but ive been so lucky with all my hair cuts! i miss hermana aguirre who could just cut it in the apartment!
but anyway this week was amazing and im so blessed to be in guatemala. since i have more time than i have left i think about going home and get depressed haha, i cant wait to see everyone but i dont want to leave this place. thankfully i got time jaja.
alright well i hope you all have a great week and remember to say your prayers! and not just say your prayers but pray.
