So we had a good week here in Alamos! I really like this area – we have seen a lot of miracles!
(Hermana Galicia and I!)
We have been working hard! This area is super hilly and there’s hardly any public transportation – which means I will actually get home with hulk legs from climbing up and down hills all day haha! But that’s okay! Part of being a missionary!
(At the end of my first day in Alamos… oops.)
So a little about our investigators…
We have some awesome families that we are teaching!
One of them is a mom and her son (he’s 13) who’s names are Patricia and Luis Angel. They would be golden, other than the fact that the mom has to get divorced and then marry her new boyfriend 😥 haha. But seriously, they are really awesome. Very receptive and they get really excited when we teach them. We talked about the fact that the familiy can be eternal, and the mom got so excited. She said that a couple of years ago, someone told her that when we die we won’t be in families, we’ll just all be brothers and sisters and we won’t recognize our children or our parents, ect. and she said that that had made her super sad. Well we were able to testify and talk about how the family can be eternal! She got so excited! We talked about getting married/sealed in the temple and she just said "well I gotta get a move on with my divorce so I can get married in the temple!!" haha. They came to church with us yesterday and they liked it a lot!
Another is the Huerta Cortes family. They are a mom and her daughter (21) and son (13). They are also really receptive and came to church with us yesterday. When they got there, the daughter turned to me and said "That’s my uncle!! and pointed to one of the brothers who was sharing his testimony. Turns out that the mom’s husband’s cousin is in our ward haha! They didn’t know and the cousin didn’t know that they were listening to us either haha!
We also found another young couple named José and Geovana. The elders from the neighboring area contacted them in the street and passed us the referral. They are awesome! They really want to learn more about God and learn how they can strengthen their family – everything the gospel can do!! So we are looking forward to working with them!
We also had a leadership council friday with all the zone leaders and sister training leaders (I will say HLC from now on – in spanish: hermana lider capacitadora). It was super awesome. It was like a mini zone conference. We learned a lot. We talked about the needs of the mission and also offered ideas of things to teach in the next zone conference. And aftewards they gave us lasanga haha (it was really good :))

Have a great week!
