No Changes and Small Miracles

Hola familia!

This week has been crazy! Elder Zambrano and I have been expecting changes for Elder Zambrano, because I am now done with my training, but last night we found out that he doesn't have changes! So we killed most of our week, saying goodbye to members and investigators!

By doing that, I learned how to make a lot of great food. First we cooked pizza with Hermana Greys, and either I've just been out of the states for too long, or that pizza was amazing!! In her tomato sauce she put ground hamburger, so it was different, but I really liked it! Also, with Alejandra, my Guatemalan grandma, we made tamales from rice. They are so good, but it does take about half the day to make them. After eating 15 tamales in 3 days, I would have to say that it was worth it.

This week the work has been slow, and I have been worried about getting a baptism this month because I have had baptisms 2 months in a row, and If I make it one more month, they will put my picture in the mission newspaper! So I have been praying A TON for a baptism, pretty much just asking for a miracle to happen haha. But this Sunday at church, the dad of one of the families we have been working hard on reactivating (and baptizing their daughter who is almost 10) came up to us and told us that he is ready to baptize his daughter. Not only is this great for me, but this will be great for their family, as this will help activate them. They have now attended church 3 weeks in a row! I am so proud of them, and you can really see how much happier they are with the gospel back in their lives! Also, I'm grateful for the small miracles that the Lord is willing to give us! If we just ask for them, and strive to achieve them, the Lord wants us to be successful just as much as we want to be successful.

Well, it sounds like the Aggies are still pushing forward, too bad for Logan High haha! Oh well, everyone have a great week! Les amo!
