|Making cookies with the cookie cutters and mix that Aunt Wendy and Grandma sent for Christmas|
Yay for holidays when no one is at home. Soo sad. So this week we walked a lot trying to find someone at home but it was still good. We were walking yesterday among the drunks when I saw a woman walking and I just knew I needed to talk with her. So we did and turns out she already received all the discussions and was going to church for a long time but then she moved and so that all stopped. It was good to find someone who wanted to talk to us this week.
I was thinking of how to find the people here that are actually ready. Sister Lopez is finishing the mission and she is ready and happy and pleased with her work and I was thinking I want to finish like that. I don´t want to look back and wish I had done more. But we teach sooo many people that we just end up dropping the next week because they don´t want to progress they just like our visits.
We have one investigator named Ana. She is probably about your age and has one son (Felipe). He is 11. Her husband passed away last year. We met her just clapping at doors trying to find people. She is sooooo awesome but still hasnt come to church because of prior commitments. We talked a lot in our last lesson about the church and she was impressed with how organized our church is and I was like (in my head) yes of course its organized its the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST. She said she wants to know our church so thats great!
I love the mish now that I can speak the language a bit better now. It is better when you want to get to know someone and you can actually speak their language (well for the most part I am still learning) We went to the center of Aracaju today and it was so cool to see all the cool stuff I want to bring home to you guys! If you want something let me know! haha So my comp says that she sends a hug, a kiss, and she will celebrate Christmas with us in 2017 eating american food!! woohoo! (sending kisses is normal here no one freak out kay?) :)
Well this week was hard. Carnaval really isn´t a good holiday for missionary work....I am ready for it to be over already.
Love you all!
