Hola Familia y Amigos,
First off, sorry for writing so late! My comp's been a little sick and we were in the hospital earlier today. But she is doing a lot better right now and we're hopin it stays that way.
Second off.. Give Grandma Forsey a HUGE hug and a kiss for me!! I will be praying for her and working here in her honor. I love you Grandma! Just hang in there! I need to hear one of your sly jokes when I get home! ;) Love you grandma!!
This last week ended perfectly with the baptism of our two investigators, Fernando and Marcelo. President and Hna Dyer were there too and my comp and I got the priviledge to give a lesson while everyone was changing. That sure scared my companion. Her first time ever teaching or talking in front of that many people and also in front of President haha. It was a good first taste of that part of the mission. We are still working with Marcelo and his family to be able to get his three kids baptised. They all went to the baptism and two of them when to church. They really liked it and are planning on coming next week.
We finally moved into our área this week which has been super nice to be a lot closer to everything considering that there is almost no public transportation after seven and now we can just walk to the house rather tan take a taxi and waste a lot of money.
This past Thursday was a holiday here in Bolivia and we got to participate in a Helping Hands Project where we all went to clean La Laguna Alalay which you can all look up on the internet. It's right next to the Christ Statue about 5 minutes from our área.
SSOOOO on to MOTHER'S DAY!! Who's excited to talk this weekend?!? I sure know I am! haha Ok so the plan right now is that I will call between 6 and 7 Bolivia time which means 4-5 your time there. I'm pretty sure that will work best with everyone and with Spencer working until 4. I think well just do it exactly how we did it last time? I'm pretty sure I can remember my password.. haha. I know everything will work out and it should have a record of our last call so I will be able to call you guys by calling Dad's account. They told us to figure out everything today so I don't think I'll be calling to confirm everything Saturday so just plan on 4-5 your time!!
I love you alll soooo very much and I can't thank God enough for all the amazing blessings he has givin me in my life. Thank you for all your love and support everyone!!
