My Companera stabbed me with a fork! Aug 30, 2016

Hola! Happy Martes! Today was our zone's wonderful Temple Preparation Day! Hence why I am emailing today. Next week will also be a Tuesday Preparation Day because of Labor Day.

Anyways! This week went by super fast! We've had a couple lessons with Juanquin and Maria. This week. They are doing pretty well, Juanquin has a problem about believing in prophets, especially in this day and time. We have been helping him believe that, but it's a bit hard because he can't read the Book of Mormon because he's loosing his eye sight...or he just can't read. I'm not quite sure. But Juanquin came to church on Sunday and really liked it. 

Sunny is doing pretty well, the Elders came over and gave him a blessing because he has really bad knees and they have been acting up really bad while he is out working in the fields. (He also gave us like a billion apples, so we are very happy) We taught him with Hermana Slaugh about the restoration because we haven't seen him in awhile. He still is very believing, but he didn't want to commit to to pray about baptism because he knows what the answer is going to be. He's really scared to ask God question because I'm not quite sure how much he wants to change his life. 

We taught Hortencia about how she can be healed though Jesus Christ. She has a lot of mental illnesses and we left her with the talk by Elder Holland about that. 

We've taught Gia a couple of times this week about faith. We've been trying really hard to commit her to coming to church on Sundays. She gets called into work a lot on Sundays and we are trying to help her see the importance of actually going to church. 

We had this really awesome lesson with Serviano this week. He knelt down and prayed about being baptized and we just sat there in silence for a good while. We think he received his answer, but is really just being scared and not wanting to commit. We left him with a part of the Book of Mormon to read about relying on Christ and believing that all will work out in the end. 

We had two exchanges this week with the Benton City Sisters. So I spent Saturday in Benton with Hna Bergmann and Monday with Hna Jordan! I love Benton City. It's a cute little town and we found a street with my name on it! *See pics* Basically it was a pretty happy couple of days. Also, this week has been fun because we are litterally out of miles. We have been asking all the members for rides and walking EVERYWHERE. Being in the middle of no where in the country is really hard when you have no miles! 

We got to go to the temple today and that was the best! We woke up at 5:30 just to go and we got to see President White and basically it was amazing. Nothing like the peace the temple brings. 

Anyways, love you all. Have a fantastic week! Talk to you Tuesday!
