10 months down, 8 to go

13 Feb


Tonight we get to go to Progreso, where Hermana Kirkham is, and have a sleepover! YAY! We have to go to Montevideo tomorrow, and we live like 2 hours away, but we have to be in Las Piedras, to meet up with the zone, to go to zone conference IN Montevideo. So we get to have a sleepover because if we take a bus from San Jose, we definitely would not get there in time. But yeah, we have Zone Conference! I’m really excited. This weekend are change calls, by the way. My comp and I have a feeling that we´re only going to stay together for this change… but we´ll see what happens. I have no idea what’s gonna happen.
This week we were desperately searching for new people to teach, but we couldn’t find anyone. Then yesterday, after a lot of prayers, and a lotttt of contacts that we had to do, the LAST contact we had to do, this nice old lady answers the door, and lets us in . She told us that she never lets anyone in, but she felt like she should let us pass. She looked really sad, and she just told us everything. Her 2 sons had just died, and her husband died about a year ago. One son died of a disease or something, and her last son killed himself. So we taught the Plan of Salvation, and then she just cheered up and
she gave us the most genuine thank you. It was a really great lesson. Heavenly Father definitely answers prayers.
Oh, so we´re doing The Rescue that Pres Monson talked about in April conference last year. Elder Davidson (Hna. Davidson gave me her cookie recipe–I absolutely love Hna. Davidson.) came and gave us all a training on how to rescue, basicallly. We have a list of 300 less active member of the church that live here in San Jose de Mayo, and we have to find them. We went through the list, and we realized that 3/4 are on the side of the elders. We like have like, NO names. But we´re gonna try and get permission to help them out. But we only have a month to find all these people, it’s kind of exciting. This week we found out that some people moved to Argentina, Chile, and one lady to Spain, and we were like “Dangit, she’s lost!” but I felt like I should ask the man if he had her phone number, at least, and he totally did. So, that was pretty cool. Just gotta contact the elders in Spain … no big deal.
But yeah, this change went by really fast. 9 months went by suuuuuuuuuuper fast, like, surprisingly fast. It was creepy! Anyway. I have to go now. I love you all so very much! I’ll tell you my change fate next Monday!

    This is Chelsea, Xiomara’s sister-in-law, and the one who does all the posts on her behalf. Just a note that I couldn’t get the photos to upload this time for some reason, so check back next week for photos on this post! –Chelsea
