This week I complete my 9 month mark....wow!!!! It has gone by so fast!!! And to think that Kara has been out for a year....can't believe it! It is all downhill from here!
Mom, you wanted to know how we find people to teach here. Really it is just about contacting. Sometimes we will get references from members. Some missionaries say that is the best way to have success (which it probably is). But the best way we find people is through contacting on the street, contacting in their houses. just contacting, contacting, contactin. it is tiring but we have to do it in order to find new people!!!
Even though not everything goes right I feel extremely happy and an extreme amount of peace- I know that the Lord is with me, and that if I try my best I will be able to find the epople who are ready!! And if they don't get baptized, I at least try to give them love!!! I love being a missionary!! NEver thought I would say that 8 months ago :) Every morning we wake up to the sounds of roosters and birds chirping. During studying we hear music, neighbors fighting, people vending (people walk around vending ALL day). And vending means selling, sorry. There is a lot of noise and a lot of motion here. At the end of the day everyone comes out of their house to sit out in the cool air and chat with each other. People are very friendly and love to hear the 'word of God.' there are always lots of animals-mostly cats and dogs. It is so different, but so good!!!
And if anyone tries to tell you that God has shut the doors and there is no revelation in these days...don't believe them!! It isn't true!!! I know that the Church is true, I know that God loves us!!!!
have a GREAT week everyone!! Good luck recovering Clair! Have fun in church and school and at home!!! Don't freeze to death, and I won't burn to death!!!!!
Love you ALL!! Choose the Right!
Love, your Nica Hermana
