Heyy que pasa!
Pues, it was quite the crazy week! With all the packing, cleaning,
moving, street and door contacting, necessary ice cream breaks, and
trying to figure out our new area, we've been pretty busy! I'll start
with a day by day summary.
Monday- pday! We played airsoft!! And ate at this buffet that was really good!
Tuesday- we had district meeting, ate some arepas, and said goodbye to
some of our people and explained that two crazy elders would now be
Wednesday- we spent the morning cleaning and finishing packing, and
then we ate with our district in muerde la pasta (buffeettttt️)
Thursday- weekly planning! With the elders.. For our new area. Woohoo!
I'll just say we weren't left with much.. With any food, cleaning
supplies, people, or even a single Book of Mormon. Haha but its okay!
Friday- we went area trying to meet the people in our new area, and me
with an awesome less active member, and talked to some former
investigators that didn't really want much. That night we met with our
recent convert rodrigo, and he's great! He's going through a lot of
hard things right now. But we convinced him to come with us to the
party for the young men/women at the church! And he had a great time!
Saturday- we did splits with two awesome members Sara and Fernanda!
They're both planning on going on missions soon so it was awesome! It
was honestly the first time ive done splits with members.. Haha. It
was super fun! We went through a lot of people we had in our area
book, but not many people were home or interested. But we did knock on
a door and interrupted a lesson from the Jehovah's witnesses haha.
Awkward.Then that night we went out more.. To do some more finding..
And got a new inv, who was also a Jehovah's Witness. She was pretty
open and let us share our ideas with her. We have another cita with
her on Wednesday!
And on Sunday no one came to church.. But we got to see Daiana and
Mirian who we had been missing!! I'm so happy that even though we are
in a new area we get to see our people!
Our new area is super different! I don't even feel like I'm in the
same city.. Haha our old area was super pretty and had all the old
cobble stone streets with cathedrals around every corner, and our new
area is newer, and has a lot of commercial areas. It's interesting. We
are trying to find work here. So it will probably be a slow start, but
we'll get there :)
I'm not sure what more to say from this week.. Except that in two days
I will have ONE YEAR in the mission!?!? Crazy right?!? Time is flying
by, but I still have so much work to do!
D&C 112:10 Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the
hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.
It has been a humbling week, and we have been relying more on the
Lord. I know that we must work as if everything depended on us, but
pray as if everything depended on the Lord. If we pray sincerely and
give thanks, and listen to the counsel of the Lord and His servants,
we can be sufficiently humble and He will bless us with His guidance.
Anyways, love you all. Have a great week!
Love, Hermana Knowles
