I`m glad to hear that Katie could share her testimony in Spanish! She`s on fire! Her Spanish classes were totally worth it! She was always a level (or two) above me during our Spanish classes. I could barely speak, but she was completely fluent! She is always really enthusiastic about learning new things, and advances quicker than the majority of other school students. She`s a wonderful example for all of us! :)
On Tuesday I received my new companion! He`s from Missouri, and has about a year in the mission. He`s one of my favorite companions so far! He is always happy, and is an obedient, diligent, and humble missionary. I`ve already learned a lot from him! We worked really hard this week, and have been focusing a lot on finding more people to teach. Our pool of investigators is really large, but a lot of them are not progressing (most of them do not attend Church). So we decided to keep finding new investigators and teaching them the message of the Restoration of the gospel, with the invitation to read the Book of Mormon to know if it`s true. We already have a lot of new investigators who will go to Church with us next Sunday, and we`re happy with the progress we`ve been making in our area so far.
It`s probably that I`ll be finishing up my mission here in Chaparrastique! I`m totally fine with that. The ward is great, and has been supporting us and visiting with us more often than ever before!
E. and Y. stopped drinking coffee last week, and both of them went to Church yesterday. They will be baptized on the 14th of May. I can`t complain about anything. ;) The Lord never stops providing us with "un montón" of blessings and miracles! :D
How are the houses here in our area? It depends. In some neighborhoods, they are made of tin roofs and stones, and in other neighborhoods are made of bricks. A lot of them in one part of our area have dirt floors and lamina roofs, but the nicer houses have tile floors (like ours). Houses are usually a lot smaller than in the United States. They consist of one room in the front (as you enter the house) and maybe one or two other rooms and a bathroom. I`ve never seen a two-storied house here either. People usually have a backyard (patio) out back where they wash their clothes by hand and then hang them up to dry.
Like Tessa said, I should take some pictures. ;)
Hope you have a wonderful week!
I love you!
