This week was fun! We had a lot of fun activites.
On Saturday we had a ward party. We had a big dinner with rice, beans, fried bananas, eggs, bread, hot chocolate, and arroz con leche. It doesn´t sound very good but it is seriously my favorite meal here. It was fun to be together as a ward and to celebrate this holiday season! The picture is a cooler of the fried bananas, I laughed at the cooler part.
On Sunday my companions and I spoke in Sacrament. I spoke on Christlike attributes and how this holiday season and new year is the perfect time to change and delvelop the attributes. I shared the story of Christ feeding thousands with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. I used the quote,
If The Lord Can Do Great Things With a Single Loaf, Imagine What He Can Do With a Single Life.
I shared how important is it to become who we are meant to be and develop the attributes of our Savior.We also sang with 2 members, Hermana Flor and Hermana America. We sang O Come, O Come Emmanuel, O Holy Night, and Que Nino es Este? So basically all of Sacrament was the missionaries singing and speaking!
Last night we had a Christmas activity in the park. We showed different Christmas videos on a big screen and sang a bunch of Christmas songs. The activity was for 3 different wards so we had a good turn out.
As missionaries we aren´t allowed to ride in the back of pick-up trucks. And the bus was broke down. So we had to take a motor taxi. They have three wheels and they are just tiny little cars. We had 7 people with us who needed to get to San Juan de Dios to do the baptism interview for our investigator. It was an adventure for sure!
Our invesigator, Tania, is still progressing. She couldn´t make it to church yesterday though so her baptism is pushed back another week. It is a bummer but she is still doing so great!
We have another investigator, Misael, who is interested but he would never pray infront of us. We tried and tried so finally this last visit my companion asked if he would repeat her in a prayer. So he repeats what she says then he finally beginnings praying on his own. The Spirit was so strong, he did it! After the prayer he told us he would come to church with us. It was a blessing!
All is well here in El Salvador. I hope all of you have a great week and enjoy Christmas!! I love you all. :)
Con mucho amor,
