Hello all! Not much is going on here really. the last transfer left on tuesday morning so there were only ten of us here for a few days. all the people of the new transfer just got here and it may be an interesting next few weeks.
this last saturday we went about our usual proselyting business and it was really dead in the streets. Hermana Grow and i ran into some really amazing people though and actually have three appointments for this next saturday which is amazing. we are really excited. one of the women that we are going to teach we ran into as she was going into her gate, as we started to talk to her she just became really overwhelmed because i think she was in alot of pain from arthritis, so we offered to help her and she said that she didnt need it then but we could come back this saturday and help her out at her home and teach her. she was amazing and we are so excited to go back and hopefully we will be able to understand her a bit more this time. we were able to talk to alot of people and it gets better every week, even though we can hardly understand a thing they say. but it will all work out for the best in the future as our spanish comes along.
hmmmm well what else what else..... days are pretty much the same haha. oh ya. one of the elders had a seizure and had to be hospitalized for a few days. guess they diagnosed him with epilepsy and said that the seizures come from getting too stressed out from studying which will probably be a problem since that is everyday. we are all hoping that he is able to overcome it but we arent quite sure what is going to happen there. he is back right now but started to go into another episode last night so we will see.
during class this week we were doing somewhat of a scripture chase and i came across one in Isaiah 49:16. give it a read if you get a chance. it really made me think about something i had in my farewell talk about how Christ will never forget us because we are His scars, He is with us through our trials and afflictions no matter how big or small they may be, i know that is is true with all my heart. love-jess
