Second off.. No hay cambios para nosotras! ( Hermana Adama and I are staying together here in Ingavi!) Mom, you should sure be happy to here that! ;)
Mom and Nichole, awesome job on Maddie's cake! I give it five stars!
It looks like things are just moving along there at home and everyone is doing great.
This past week was a bit more stressful getting Jhonatan ready for baptism and everything figured out for that. Saturday came and the baptism started like an hour late because Jhonatan was in an interview with the bishop.. But we just do things late here in Bolivia.. haha Nothing I'm not used to being a Forsey.. haha Jk.. but seriously. ;) Anyway, the baptism was really great and we had a great turn out with the ward and the missionaries that came to help support. All us missionaries sang A Child's Prayer and it turned out pretty great for most of the missionaries not knowing it very well and for singing it with the music for the first time in front of everyone haha. Jhonatan was so thankful for everything and for all the support and love . A few sisters in the ward also prepared some great refreshments and a DELICIOUS chocolate cake (which doesn't happen much here ;) )
We also could have had another baptism with Ariel, a sister in the ward's nephew but he feels that he needs to come to church a little more before he gets baptized. He's super interested and has a TON of questions so we are just helping him out and helping him with all his questions. We set his baptism date for next Saturday so be praying for him!!
Sorry if it's a little confusing when I talk about our investigators... We just have TONS.. and situations change so often because we either don't have time to visit all of them or we end up getting new ones that progress more.
Mom, Hermana Lee will be Hermana Mullisaca's new companion starting Tuesday which means she's in my zone and we will be eating together! Woohoo!
So these past couple weeks there were a few nights that I just got attacked by mosquitos! Oh man, mosquito bites make for some bad dreams and little sleep sometimes. Haha especially when you're sleeping and you wake up to a buzzing around your face. Darn mosquitos! We got up three times in one night just to kill the few mosquitos that were atacking us and keeping us up. That was a fun study period the next morning.. haha we could barely stay awake for the life of us. It was pretty funny though. These past few nights we've been mosquito free ;)
Still no package but I'm sure it will get here some time within the next 6 months... Haha ;)
I don't have many facts this week but here are a couple:
-If two people live together and they call each other husband and wife, doesn't mean their married. What even is the definition of a spouse??
-Decorative park fountains make great for neighborhood pools..
For the spirtual thought for this week..
Never ever lose your faith in the Lord. With time and with patience, we will receive success and happiness. The storms will come and they will go but sometimes not as fast as we'd like. Like Elder Holland said. "If the bitter cup doesn't pass, drink it." The Lord has a plan for us and we need to realize that everything will be good in the end.. Like Pres. Hinckley once said. "Everything will be ok in the end. If everything's not ok, it's not the end." Feast upon the words of our prophets and apostles. They have told us many great things and the Lord works through them!
Well that be all folks!
Thank you for all the emails and the love!! I love you all and wish you all a fantastic week!! .. and thanks Michone for the cute videos!!
