Week 42 - Viru

This week was a pretty good week. Last Monday we went to the Castillo de Tomabal. I included the picture of my district at the castle. It was a pretty good pday.
This week we have continued to work with the members a little bit to move the work forward here. One night we found one member in the house of one of our investigators and we didn't even know they were friends or knew each other. The member didn't know that her friend had listened to us either. It was pretty funny. Anyway, the member has gotten super excited and has been visiting her a ton. It is such a blessing to have members who are willing to step into the work and help their friends. The members name is Hermana Olivia. She is like 65 and so funny. The other day we were in her house teaching her family and in the end of the lesson we knelt down to say the pray and as we knelt down she said ¨esta es una prueba de la vida¨ it was so funny. She basically said ¨this is one of the difficulties of life.¨
We have also been working with Monica and Manuel a little bit and they are doing really well. Yesterday we went on a little walk with them to their friends house to visit them, but their friends were home. It was cool to see them walking all together as a family though. That is why we are here. So that families can be more united today and forever. 
This week we also had a little training with President Rios again. It was a training for the new missionaries and their trainers. He started out by telling us that we are part of 77000 young people who the Lord has called out of the whole world to share the gospel. That really motivated me and helped me realize the importance of this opportunity. 
I know our callings come from our Father in Heaven.
