3 Months Done!
I feel like so much has happened this past week!
we had our English graduation. I love all the girls we teach so much. and they were all so excited to get their certificates!
We're always busy of course. We have been teaching a lot of recent convert lessons lately which has been good. We have also been trying to work with less active members also.
The Best thing about this last week is we finally got in with the Alcarez family. A little bit about them, The mom Judy, was baptized about 20 years ago and has been inactive ever since. She is married to Alfredo, and they have 4 kids. Amanda 16, Vanessa 12, AJ 8, and Joshua 6. Judy says that she wants her kids to get involved in the church. Her oldest daughter Amanda has a lds friend and she is really interested. We went to their home and Judy says that she wants her kids to be baptized! I am so excited for them. And the dad, Alfredo, is super funny. I showed him my photo album and i have a picture of my baptism and he said, his own words, "so when i get baptized i will white too??" yeah, i almost cried right there. they are so ready! They just need the lessons, and to come to church of course. And if they get baptized before April, I will be able to go through the temple with them:)
The cold has passed, its 70 degrees now everyday. so today were are going to play in the park.
Yesterday was the Mission President Fireside. It was amazing of course! They had recent converts speak and we sang and the spirit was so so strong! and all the spanish missionaries were there so it was awesome.
