October 13, 2014 - Update

October 13, 2014

Hola hola!

QUE CALOR! It has been so hot this week, and it’s just going to continue to be hot and it’s ridiculous, haha.  But anyway, this week was a little crazy but super good.  Monday was a pretty good p-day, nothing too eventful.  On Tuesday we did servicio with an investigadora that sells homemade bread so she taught us how she makes it and we helped her and it was really fun.  Then on Wednesday we did a servicio with our district for a family in the area of the elders and we cleaned their house and cooked for them and that was also super fun.  We also made poleras for our district that are way sweet.  Then Wednesday we received the news of the cambios and Hermana C. left to another area on Thursday. Hermana M. and I stayed in Belen. There are also two other hermanas in Belen. Llegaron Hermana B., who I love, and she is training a newbie from Peru.  And ok I seriously love being with Hermana M.  Even though she´s from Bolivia I feel like she´s like a hipster from the United States.  She is so awesome and we work really hard together and have a lot of fun.  And I also love it because she´s really trying to learn English and we talk a lot in English. She is so hilarious. This week was elections for the president in Bolivia, so from Saturday night to this morning she was in another area to vote where she registered. I was with another Hermana from Potosi who is super sweet.  All day Sunday we couldn´t leave the house, only to go vote and come back, so we just watched church movies all day, haha.  We were sad that there wasn’t church, but it was only for this one day.    
This week was good and we´re excited to work this week because we have two new investigators that we know are going to progress.  One is looking to strengthen her marriage and her family. The other is a single mother that has a little boy and is looking for the truth. We know that we have what they both need and are looking for.    I love this gospel and I know it strengthens and blesses families and is what will give us everlasting happiness.

Con mucho amor,

Hermana Tijerino
