Hope everyone is enjoying all the cool weather because here, summer is JUST STARTING! I've had to put away all my jackets and everything it gets so hot somedays! And there is this weird weather pattern called 'El Niño' that has brought even hotter weather here in the coast and torrential down pours up in the mountains. Pretty exciting!
As for this week it was pretty quiet! School ends for all the kids in like 3 weeks so EVERYONE is just slammed with school work and projects. The families that we've been working with haven't had much time! But thats alright! Something one of our leaders said is that when no one is accepting us, but we're trying our hardest, the Lord is sending those blessings to our families and friends who need them! And it is SO TRUE. My companion, Hermana Hielo, just found out that her dad and brother got baptized this last week! How amazing is that!!! A lot of the times, the Lord will bless us in ways we don't expect, but in the end, he knows what's best for us!
And just a cool quick story. We haven't been able to get ahold of Jheremy or his parents for about 2 weeks now and we've been praying so hard that somehow we would be able to get ahold of them. Then last sunday his mom called us out of the blue!! And we were able to plan a Family Home Evening with a family in our ward. And they CAME! We played games, ate BROWNIES (real brownies!!! Thanks mom for the mix!!!) The kids were so fasinated by them, and had a great lesson about prophets. It was quite amazing.
Love you all so very much!!!! Don't have much time left, but the scripture I've been thinking about is in 2 Corinthans 4:17-18 about why we go through trials!Love it!
P.S. Shout out to my fam in the mission field! Elder Chandler in Spain, Sister Nix in Florida and Brother and Sister Chandler in South Africa!! YOU ALL ROCK!
