April 16, 2015

This week has been pretty rough! A lot of ups and downs! The hardest day was Monday! It was just a frustrating day and even though we had a great lesson with one of our practice investigators the language or rather the lack of the language was frustrating and my companions and I all had a good cry and now we are just taking it one day at a time! The language is frustrating but it is coming along! We have some amazing teachers that are willing to help us every step of the way! It's amazing! We are still the only zone in our district and we wont get a new zone either next wednesday. When this happens we get more teachers because they still have to come into work even when they dont have a class and so they've been coming in to help us on our way!

I forgot to mention Last sunday for devotional we had Vocal Point come and sing!!!!! It was fantastic! It was so great and a much needed break from always listening to talks and lectures. dont get me wrong I love the lessons I learn from the talks but it was nice to just take a break from thinking for a while! haha after the performance we had the opportunity to go and shake each of their hands! That was pretty great! 

This Sunday we had the BYU men's choir come! That was great as well! They brought a message about deliverance and it was really great how they sung different songs to portray that message! :) They sang songs from Prince of Egypt and also sung The Lord's prayer in Swahili! It was awesome!!!! :)

Also on Sundays, our branch president has us write talks in Spanish and then on like Saturday or even during the sacrament hymn (Like I was) you'll get called up and you give the talk that you have prepared! Luckily I was prepared and I gave my first talk in spanish! It was on El libro De Mormon! Also Hermana Hunt and I had to prepare a lesson for what's like the equivalent ofSunday school here! Our other Hermana taught relief society! Small branch = Many opportunities to serve! haha

So even though the language is super frustrating its coming along pretty well! I am definitely seeing blessings of just keeping at the language! Even if those blessings are misspelling words in english because my head is stuck in spanish mode! haha Its all kinda funny! So i apologize if i misspell any words or if something doesn't make sense! haha

I have a testimony that our Heavenly Father KNOWS us and LOVES us! He is with us every step of the way! We just have to be the ones that come back to Him! I love you all and hope all is well!
