Well, i couldnt write yesterday because the power was out, that happens a lot, so if i ever dont write thats probably the reason!
First off, THANKS FOR THE GREENIE CARE PACKAGE! that was seriously so awesome!
I really felt the love from home this week, i dont know why it took so long to get.
this week was a good one, we had a mission tour which means that a few zones meet at the mission home chapel and have a big day of devotionals, i learned a lot and strengthened my testimony, president corbitt is an awesome man, he really has the spirit with him.
we have been teaching so much with the members, one man named acevedo loves to come with us, tuesday was his birthday and he chose to come teaching with us for 6 hours. we walked all day. 6 lessons. and this guy is 85 years old! amazing man. his wife isnt a member but we are working on that right now ;)
We were fed a lot this week, we eat lunch everyday with the same member, but one day we went and visited a less active who wanted to feed us so badly, and we were going to lunch right after that, but we didnt want to hurt any feelings, so we ate at the less actives house, i was so full, then we had to go eat lunch again, because the member cooked us a nice meal as well, elder areas and i were going to explode!!! haha
we had noche hogar, or FHE last night with the famimlia castro, they are like the elders family out here, the mom is the member that cooks us lunch everyday, and the day is a stud, really strong convert, they have two daughters i consider my sisters. so awesome. any ways we had a really good FHE with them, we sang familias pueden ser eternas, had to hold back the tears again, had a really good lesson by Yu Yu, the youngest daughter, and then had arroz con leche for dessert, which is basically rice pudding!!! i thought of home so much, it was awesome though!
the language is coming slowly, i can understand elder areas most of the time, i still carry my best friend, the dictionary, with me at all times! haha but its just like saturdays warrior right? line upon line and precept upon precept.
Thanks for all your guys support and prayers, i have felt it especially this week. i pray for you guys as well, not a day goes by that i dont think of you guys. i have felt the spirit more than ever these past 2 months of my life, and although its hard, my relationship with jesus christ is growing stronger and stronger every day! i know this church is true.
Until next week,
this is momma castro, who cooks for useveryday, rice pudding ;)
