Hna Sandison was with Hna Salazar and I waiting to train a new sister, and we found a lizard in our room, and she KILLED IT so that was fun and sad..
We went to visit Diana and she broke the news that it was the last day to turn in all of their paperwork to get married, and they didnt do it on time. So she told us they were gonna wait til october to get married.. and get baptized.. Broke our hearts.
We went to the airport to send off two of my comps (Hna Bazan and Hna Orellana) super sad. So grateful to have learned from them! I also saw Hna Aida from Miguel Grau after SO LONG and it was so fun talking to her because the last time i saw her my Spanish was a little rough. :)
An old investigator from the area called US to come visit him. Harold. I had never met him, but had heard of him. Its always good news when people call us to visit them. His girlfriend is a member of the church.
We were walking in the street and this lady came up to us "HERMANAS" and turns out she was a less active woman named Laura and hadnt been to church in 7 years. She said so many people judged her and told her that it is not possible to baptize for the dead, and right there we pulled out 1 Corithians, and she let us in her house and told us that was the reason she left the church, because the Bible didnt talk about baptisms for the dead. But there was her answer.
We visited Diana and Robert again, and they told us that they got another chance! That they were going to have to send in all their papers before 1 o´clock Thursday, and it was going to be hard to get everything in. Lots of prayers and faith!
We had a leadership counsel, I got to speak a little bit about working with referrals, that was fun. All day we were thinking about Diana and Robert and if they were going to be able to get everything in on time. So right after the leadership counsel we called them and YES THEY DID IT! Wedding back on.
We had a zone meeting, Hna Salazar and I had a little presentation. Todo salió bien.
We visited the less active, Laura, and she told us she changed her mind. She didnt want to go to church, and she was already used to her new church. After a good convincing, she told us she would come to church with us on Sunday.
We did divisions to pick people up to go to church, I picked up Elizabeth. A cute little single mom. To our surprise, another single mom investigator, Rosa, came to church too! They both LOVED it, and made friends, signed up for the ward activity, etc. It was cool. Hna Salazar went to pick up Laura, and she came! And they talked all about baptisms for the dead in relief society. She had a really good experience after 7 years. In sacrament meeting i was PRAYING so hard because Diana and Robert still werent there, and she wasnt going to be able to get baptized if she didnt come. And RIGHT before the sacrament started, they walked in. YAY! Also Harold came the full 3 hours too. A really good Sunday.
SOOO now this week we will be crazy busy. On Thursday we are doing a "Pollada," a chicken fundraiser with Diana for her wedding. Saturday they get married, and Sunday she gets baptized. :) LOVE THEM SO MUCH, the funniest little couple. Im so happy for them. And they haved changed so much, its awesome.
LOOVE the work, love the mission! Good things to come.
