Well we had a pretty hectic week! Christmas is definitely getting closer! It’s gotten a little cold here (not cold enough to snow – Texas beat us on that one). It’s kind of annoying because it’s hot during the day but cold at night and in the morning. Today we got up super early to wash clothes and the water was SOOO cold. I think my hands just about froze. I couldn’t move my fingers haha. But you gotta do what you gotta do to save time 🙂
Today I got to visit some people from Xonacatepec so that was really nice. It’s great getting to see old investigators and members again 🙂 I know I’ll really treasure the friendships I’ve made here! I just love these people so much!
We are actually going to have a schedule change for december. Usually we go back home at 9 o clock every night, but now for the hermanas we have to be home at 7PM for safety, unless we’re with a member (male) who’s accompanying us. It’ll be really weird to study at night instead of in the morning. (please pray for me so that I can stay awake haha!)
We did intercambios with the hermanas en Xonacatepec. I don’t have pictures but I’ll try to send some later.
Well the truth is, we’ve had kind of a hard week this week. A lot of our investigators disappeared haha. Margarita (the miracle from last week!) disappeared completely. We called her, texted her, knocked on her door, and nothing. It must be for the holidays, lots of people are working a lot. Vicente and Dolores are also working a lot. We tried to go to the market where they work but we couldn’t teach. Too much music and noise. It’s kind of annoying but there’s not much we can do. Almost all of our appointments fell through this week, which is a bummer too. One night when we were doing our companionship prayer, Hna Badger said "Thank you for all the people who reject us, and thank you because all the appointments fell through today" and the both of us just bursted out laughing (not very reverent, but I just had to laugh at our luck haha)! But really, we have to be greatful for all of it. You just gotta look at the bright side – when there aren’t appointments, there’s more time to look for new investigators! We keep talking with everyone! We have found some awesome people. We showed the Light the world video to a mother in the street and she started to cry. It really touched her.
I love being a missionary, and I love the experiences I’ve had, the people I’ve met, and the people I’ve taught. It’s definitely gone by too fast. Being able to talk about the gospel every single day is a huge blessing. I’m so glad the I was "called to serve" as the song says 🙂 I’m trying to enjoy every minute that’s left.
(This week we have been "running around like chickens with our heads cut off 🙂 – yes, that is how they sell chickens here, hanging)
