Happy Half Birthday to Me!

You know what it is?????!! January 12th. Just hit 5 months. wut? Cuttin right to the chase.........basically the family that we gave the christmas too that has hardy anything has some new guests in their house. Her daughter and her family. so now there are 6 kids and 2 adults in 2 beds and not much space. The daughter is pregnant her spouse is in jail, and she hadnt been eating cause she didnt have enough money. We are trying to figure out if she can be baptized because the problem is she isnt married to her spouse, but he is going to be in jail for the next 20 years.  We have been visiting her alot and they just need a lot of support. Their mom is a rockstar and so faithful, i sat next to her during church and she was paying tithing. Their faith is what is helping them. 

Another heavy, is one of the recent converts has had a hard time again. We went to visit him, and he wasnt there but we were talking to his family and thought we would share a scripture and leave with a prayer anyway. At the end of the prayer the daughter broke down and then every member of the family spilled their sorrows.

Missionary work is hard because the people you teach unload problems on you and then we carry them. I am emotionally tired everyday, but everyones prayers keeps me going. At least they feel more relieved for a while about their struggles. I am learning so much of the Atonement every single day.

the pastor. #prayfor  He may or may not be baptized this week. He came to church and even cleaned the chapel the day before-ROCKSTAR. He told me ´´I think you have something different for me´´ Super true. 

Things with the comp were really picking up at the beginning of the week. I felt like we were on the same page, she shared with me her desire to be more obedient and to be better and that i was helping her. We were truly on fire and happy laughing.  Then saturday and yesterday it was like we were back to square one. All i can do is keep going. 

Love you all,  I am off to another hike. called. wait for it. SOGAY hahahahahahah
