September 8, 2014 Update.

September 8, 2014

Hola hola,
Can you believe this week I completed 10 months?? I feel like it was just yesterday that I completed 9 months.  Everyone says that after you hit half way that time starts to fly, and it is so true! Anyway, this week was really good.  It’s been a little hard to find our investigadores, and we’ve been rejected a lot, and we’ve been walking a lot in the sun tan fuerte, pero todo esta bien. It’s all good.  We always try to keep ourselves animada and we’re always laughing and joking around and we’re always saying things like rechazaron dos siervos del señor tan hermosos y tan bellas? O si jesuscristo estuviera tocando su puerta, que haría? O ok esta bien nos vemos en el juicio final! O todos tienen su albedrio o coasa asi, hahaha.  Anyway, we have an investigadora se llama Paola.  She is so great, I love her so much.  She really is ready to get baptized and she wants to. She just hasn’t wanted to accept a date and we didn’t know why, but she finally came out and told us that she wants her step-dad to baptize her. But the thing is that right now he’s less active and he’s living with her mom. But they’re not married yet, so he’s not able to baptize her until he’s married and active again in the church.  So we’re going to work with the ward and see how we can help them to get married and get him back to church and his wife too and how we can help Paola get baptized.  She’s also attending seminary which I think is helping a lot.  We also went with her to an activity in the church that was a noche de talentos that the jovenes presentaron, and it was really good.  
Anyway nothing else has been too exciting.  One thing I don’t think I've mentioned is that we've started to eat with the members on Saturdays and Sundays, so we can get to know them better. This was the third weekend, and it’s been going really well.  I like eating with the members, except the fact that they always serve us so much food! haha.  It’s turning into summer again, so it’s been really hot.  I think when I get back I will appreciate the cold more... ha-ha, and AC. I love you all and hope all is well back home.

Con mucho amour, 

Hermana Tijerino
