Miracles and more Miracles!

This week I feel like the Lord has just opened the windows of heaven to us...I can´t even believe some of the things that happened this week. First I want to start with Romina. On Monday we had Family Home Evening in the house of one of our members with her. She loved it and said she already feels part of the church, so that was awesome. The next day as well, she invited us over to her house for almuerzo!(lunch) She´s incredible, and everything that happens that might seem like a problem, is instantly fixed right away. This week she´s working on her divorcements, because she wants to marry the man she lives with now so she can be baptized! It´s going to take about 1.5 months to 2 months, but we´re going to keep working with her family. The members love her as well, and they call her and visit her, and I can´t even describe really what it´s like. One thing that I´ve learned is that I´m going to be such a better member to the missionaries when I come home! The members in this ward are incredible and help the missionaries so much. On Saturday we brought Romina and her kids to a baptism as well, so that was a really special experience for them, to see what a baptism is like. If you have any extra time in your prayers, please pray for Romina!

    Something kind of funny that happened this week is that we had.....a cockroach infestation!!! We had lots of little friends visiting our pension. We had this massive amount of weeds and grass behind our pension and it was causing us to have a bunch of cockroaches. Our pension is super clean, and in the mornings we would come downstairs to find about 10 of them or so sleeping on the we´d have to break out the Raid and kill them. Haa we got someone to cut our pasto (pasture) after about 4 days of this and afterwards we´ve only found one or two in the mornings, which is more normal.

   Another miracle that happened this week....we were planning one night to visit this menos activeo (less active) that we don´t know yet. His name is Esteban, and while we were planning to visit him, we received a phone call from two brothers in the ward that said they had stopped by to visit him today and that he wants to start again studying the Book of Mormon! So we called Esteban and set up an appointment for the next day. When we got there he told us how he hasn´t gone to church for about 15 years...he didn´t go one Sunday and just stopped going after that! But now he misses having the spirit in his life and wants to return to the church and start reading the Book of Mormon again and talk to the bishop and....he came to church on Sunday!! And brought his friend!! What!!! Sunday was a day of miracles.

   We have this girl in our ward named Débora. She´s 22 and joined the church less than a year ago. Her little sister Andrea is 17 and comes to church every single Sunday without fail and goes to every activity, but her mom won´t let her be baptized because she thinks she´s too young and only goes to church because of Débora and her friends.. However, her mom LOVES the missionaries. Andrea went to EFY this past week and when she returned home after telling her mom about the experience her mom was talking to the bishop about how she thinks that now, Andrea is ready to be baptized!!! What!!! And her mom came to church on Sunday!!!!  We´re having Family Home Evening in their house for the first time ever tonight, and we´re so excited and so nervous at the same time!!! It´s going to be so good though because the Lord is going to help us!! 
    Also at church on Sunday some other members brought their friends and we have a bunch of appointments this week and I have never been happier in my whole life I think. Everything that´s happening here, is so amazing and I feel so blessed beyond measure. Hna. Rodas only has 2 weeks left before she goes home, and I´m trying to learn everything that I can from her now. It´s going to be so weird to have a new companion, but I know that the Lord will help me. I still don´t understand everything that people say and can´t communicate as well as I would like, but despite everything, nothing is better than this. When we feel down, or defeated or like we can´t carry on, we can always find strength in our knowledge of the gospel. Jesus Christ is our Savior, our Redeemer, and through Him, with His help, we can overcome anything. I testify that this is true.
