Hi friends and family!!
This week was so awesome! We started off with Carnaval so we weren´t actually able to leave the house, but we sure took advantage of those three days locked in to snooze, study, and eat.
On Thursday, Presidente and Hermana Rodríguez attended our district meeting, so that was cool, and then afterwards our zone leaders gave us cake — yay!
We found some awesome new people to teach this week, one of whom is the little sister of this recent convert. She is 11 years old and so cute, when we went to visit her, and she very excitedly declared to us “I WANT TO GET BAPTIZED!” ha ha! She´s very cute and very willing, and the awesome news is that her older brother can also baptize her! We jsut hope that her mom gives her permission to keep attending church.
Then on Sunday, we had a stake conference and we were really worried that none of our investigators would be able to make it because the church building was a little far away, so we were utterly shocked and overjoyed when our investigator Claudi arrived! She sat next to us for the whole conference and took notes on everything as well, and afterwards we were able to present her to Presidente and Hermana Rodríguez! That was so awesome and Hna. Rodríguez was like, “theses hermanas are just the best” and we felt so happy and special inside. 🙂
We have now officially started a new transfer, and Hermana Hartline and I will be staying together! I cannot BELIEVE that it is my last transfer — I was just getting good at being a misisonary! But I´m so grateful to be a missionary and I love my area, I love my companion, I love everything here and I plan to 100% work hard and leave this place a whole lot better than how I found it. I love being a missionary, there is nothing greater than being a missionary.
I love you all so much!
