Ok funniest week. Lets begin with last night... so we were home weekly planning and we heard a knock at the door. it frightened us. then they started knocking so hard and trying to open the handle. we FREAKED OUT. because no one really knows where we live but theres a lot of sketchy people that live around us and also there have been some weird things happening in the mission with sisters apartments. so we turned out all the lights and hid in the bathroom and called the elders. it was so scary. i dont know why but both of us our bodies were shaking and everything. the elders came over and found that it was just a member that had dropped by some desserts. hahahhaha we were so embarrassed. but it was so funny too. i dont know why we have been so sensitive lately but everything has been scaring us.
so next we had zone training on wednesday. Elder Fakava is a great district leader but he doesnt always understand things culturally.... so he had to give a 10 minute talk about exercise and cleaning. he had our district which is all sisters besides him and his comp stand up and he said look at my district, they all have perfect bodies. HAHHAHA it was so awkward and so funny. we dont really know what he was trying to say but it was very funny.
The great news of the week is that Pablo is going to receive the priesthood on sunday!!! and of all miracles his wife lydia, our main investigator, is able to come to church!!! every week she requests to get sundays off and this week her boss let her have it off! seriously such an answer to prayers and fasting. she is hoping it can become a regular thing so she can be baptized. we are so excited. seriously even though the work has been slow we are seeing a lot of miracles. ive been kind of frustrated because i know i am leaving at the end of this transfer and i just want to leave knowing ive done all i can and given it my all and when we dont see success i get frustrated. but thats ok. we carry on and keep working. Dad, Im giving Pablo your number he will probably call you this week. He reminds me of you a lot. He speaks ok english but sometimes its hard to understand fyi. but he is really great and i think you will be buddies. he has had many of the same experiences as you too just in different ways.
i love you all so much! the Lord is blessing us even when we can't understand the reasons for our trials. I do know that we have a loving Heavenly Father that is aware of us and our needs. He is our strength and our light. I am so grateful for this Gospel. Have a great week!!!
