Also the puzzle thing happened when a family let us in because it was raining like crazy (I think I was the closest to thunder and lightning in this moment) (very loud stuff) and they started talking to us, made us hot chocolate (because we kindly turned down the coffee offer) and then her son pulled out a puzzle. I couldn’t resist and told them about my love of puzzles. We did it together (30 pieces I think) and she thought I was pretty "intelligent" for having completed it without a picture. It was the first time they had seen what it actually was cause no one had been able to complete it ...so of course she took a picture of me and her son with it.
The last point, the Sun.....boy is it starting to feel like summer here. Even the mornings feel like the heat is entering your soul from every direction, not just from the sun above you.
I had some great moments this week. I’m a scripture hugger. I was feeling a bit frustrated and confused and needed some love so I thought; why not hug your quad of scriptures? So I snuck a hug for a good minute or so with them and it felt sooo good. I felt so much love from my Heavenly Father even though it wasn’t him physically; I knew He was hugging me back :) Another was helping a member with Family Search and realizing how lucky I am with all that’s been done so far and how my family is amazing. Getting to watch a members sealing in the temple because my Companion was invited and Presidente authorized us to go! It only reminded me of the wonderful experience I had with Erica and Michael. Way to go all the way to the top :) Sealing for eternity is the only way to go in this life :) Still enduring the bugs and creatures here, some of which I don’t have a problem. Geckos are my buddies still! And being able to have our investigator watch another’s baptism. She still really wants a big answer from God about being baptized so we are trying to help Maria progress to this point. Please help me remain faithful with this. She’s already felt the spirit but asks for more...it’s been a little tough for me.
A Tarantula in our apartment . . .
Unfortunately, Mr Tarantula wasn't alone . . .
I'd much rather hold a gecko
Love you all. Have a great week!
