So we just had changes yesterday and I am training an hermana from Ecuador! Her name is Hermana Guerrero and her name is honestly my worst nightmare because after 15 months in the mission I have yet to learn how to roll my "rr"s. So I am taking it as a 3 month long challenge to never ever ever say my companions name. I will keep yall updated on how it goes.
I am training her in San Miguel. I have officially said goodbye to San Bernardo. Between wards Quimey and San Bernardo, which are both from the stake San Bernardo, I was in that stake and zone for about 10 months. And now I have returned to zone San Miguel. I actually started my mission in this zone but I was in Departamental, which is the ward next to San Miguel. # tinymissionlife. And so I am training her in a whitewash, we opened the sector up for hermanas after it being closed for a cambio or two. So neither one of us has any idea what we are doing but it is great!
Yesterday we were able to visit a few members, and the elders gave us references of a few people that they were teaching but are part of our sector so they passed them to us and we were able to teach the Restoration to a family of colombianos and my companion did SO good she shared the first vision and it was such a cool experience to be able to hear her teach that on her first day.
And before changes day, Hermana Cribbs and I got to go do an open temple house in another sector which was fun. Oh and we got to go do service in another sector, we went with the elders of another zone to go sing for an hermana... who had a family member die. So we went and we sang to the family and it was so sad the lady who passed away had a really little son and he started crying as we sang and Cribbs and I were a mess, trying to comfort this little kid who had just lost his mom and it just made me so grateful for the knowledge we have that our families can be together forever. And we dont just know that they can, but we know how they can be together forever. The hermana who asked us to come was the only member of her family and it just made me really grateful to know that God does have a plan for us that is the reason why I am here, to be able to share that with everyone.
I hope you all have a lovely week!
