This week has been a great week, I even had 2 p-days this week, one on Monday here in Huehue and the other in Xela the next day! After a lot of playing, we actually had a successful week, as we have been working hard to find new people, and to teach people.
First I will start off with the P-day in Xela. So, we had to be in Xela by 9:00 a.m. for changes, and so I got there,and said goodbye to my companion. Then I went with the other trainers to run around in Xela. Our first stop was at the temple, but we only got there after making a pit stop at Walmart! It felt soooooo good to be home.......haha! I learned one thing, it doesn't matter if you're in Guatemala or in the States, Walmart is the exact same!
Then we made it to the temple. After visiting the temple grounds, I would have to say that the Xela temple is one of the most beatiful temples. They have a lot of architecture and sculptures, that include the ancient Mayan symbols. Also, there was just a great peaceful feeling there, so that was great to go and see.
After that, we found Subway, and yes that is the same too! But after all that fun, it was time to go meet my new companion, and he is awesome! His name is Elder Perry and he is from Pleasent Grove, Utah. He does like BYU, but I think I can work with him haha! But no, he is very spiritual and dedicated to the work, so after this week, I have just noticed a difference and we have been more successful too. So, I am grateful to be companions with him.
Something pretty cool happened this week. As we have been knocking on doors and trying to find some people, we found a family that was in great need. They had come to Huehue for their daughter to have her baby, but they are stuck here, because the baby was in the hospital with Johnson´s disease. We gave them a blessing and what was a miracle, is that the next day, they asked us to come back. When we went back, the baby was there, and they said that overnight the baby got better. So, that definitely strengthened my testimony of the priesthood. With a little bit of faith, anyone can be healed, or blessed by the priesthood. We are now teaching this family, and I hope they can be baptized and take the gospel up into their village and share it with other people.
So that was my week! Pretty fun, we get to go to Xela tomorrow for a trainers meeting, so that means Wendy's tomorrow! I can't believe it's almost Christmas. Feliz Navidad y Ano Nuevo! Les amo!
