As you can see by the title, there were a lot of miracles that happened this week:
Miracle #1: On Friday night all of our plans fell through and we were walking and deciding what to do and we happened to walk past the church and there were a lot of members outside playing and watching soccer so we decided to say hi real quick. There were some young women selling hot dogs and coke so we bought some and while we were waiting for them to bring it to us some random guy from the stake that was playing soccer came up to us and said "Hermanas I have something for you" and then he proceeded to pull out two Jiff Whips Peanut Butter thingys from his backpack and then Slim Jims and gave them all to us jajajajaja we were like whaaaaaaaaattttttttttttttttttt. And I was so happy and crying tears of joy and wow. For realz such a miracle! I don't know who that man is but he is my favorite person.
Miracle #2: On Saturday morning our plans fell through again and we took a weird route through the city idk I think sometimes the spirit just guides us and we don't even realize it because WE RAN INTO RAUL!!!!!!!!!!!! He's the convert that got married and baptized in November!! I hadn't heard from them and the missionaries in Reducto told me that they were having a hard time finding him and I was really worried. Turns out, him and his wife just moved to another city! But they told me that they are still super active and that they still have plans to go to the temple in November and get sealed :) :) :) That was seriously such a miracle!! I was so happy to see them, we literally ran into them at the perfect time!
Miracle #3: Okay so I am way bad at writing you and telling you about the people we are teaching and stuff but we have been teaching a guy named Bruno with the Elders. Bruno is 21 and when we started teaching him he was atheist. But he's been reading the Book of Mormon like crazy and coming to church every week and progressing a ton! We taught him last week about how he's changed in the last month and he said he's a lot happier now and feels the presence of God in his life, it was seriously just like woah. He's getting baptized this Saturday and we are so excited for him!!!
Miracle #4: Okay so Edith is incredible. She just keeps progressing more and more and more! We taught her about prophets on Saturday night and showed her the pic of the prophet, apostles, and 70 that come in the General Conference magazine and she loved it! Literally every time we have taught her something she hasn't had any doubts, she just knows that it's all true. On Sunday in Gospel Principles class, she volunteered to say the closing prayer and she prayed for President Monson! It was so cool. She hasn't even heard or read one of his talks yet but she knows that he's God's prophet on the earth right now and it seriously is the coolest thing. She is so converted to the gospel!
This week has been super great! We are just working our buns off and talking to everybody and seeing so many miracles! I love San Lorenzo so much and I am so happy here!! Our house hasn't had water since yesterday so we have to use a bucket full of water to flush the toilet and stuff but igual I am so happy and so grateful to be here!
