This week we started off the Chirstmas initiative #LIGHTtheWORLD with a bunch of service on Thursday. We took some pictures of the work we did but I fogot my card adaptor so I couldn't upload them today. In the morning we helpped a less active sister cut the branches that were hanging over her house. It was a lot of work because we only had a hand saw and a hatchet but we cut them all just fine. After that we went to help an older sister to paint her house. We ended up eating at the second service we did so that made our schedule a little easier.
On Friday we had exchanges. I stayed here in our area with our district leader. We ended up contacting a lot abd found some really good new investigators. In the evening we also went to the farewell for one of the missionaries leaving from the ward. It was good because we also found several new people to teach there.
On Saturday we worked with a youth named Noel who is preparing for his mission. He helped us contact and then came to eat with us. I really like working with return and future missionaries because they are always so excited about the work. That night we we're going to head back toward our house to work when we ran into Noel again. He said he felt like he should visit a specific family and we ended up going with him. It turns out that the sister we visited had been praying for us to visit her about two hours before. We had a really cool lesson with her and her daughter and we helped her answer some questions she had.
On Sunday we had fast and testimony meeting. It was really good and I felt really close to the members here. There were some crazy kids running up and down the aisles in the meeting but it made me think about how patient Godis with us and with all of our outbursts and mistakes. It was also really rainy yesterday. It made work a little harder but it was all good.
Well, that's all for this week. I hope that you all keep working of the Christmas initiative and that you have a great week!
Con mucho amor,
