I never thought time could pass so quickly, I feel like I am not in control anymore. But, I know the Lord and His angels are. These last few weeks have been a testament to me that the Lord leads us to where we must be in the precise moments that we must be there. We are seeing miracles!
My companion got sick this week. Poor girl. She is such a dedicated missionary that she even threw up outside of an investigators home. Its such a bummer when things like this happen, especially when all you want is to be out teaching the gospel. Fortunately, we are blessed in this ward to have great members always willing to go out with us. On Wednesday, Hermana Fuenzalida stayed with our pensionista while I went out and worked with a cute girl in our ward that recently returned home from her mission in Peru. It was a great day. We met families, and taught spiritually uplifting lessons.
Thursday, Hermana Fuenzalida was feeling better so we went out and worked...hard. We are seeing a lot of progress in the people who we teach.
Friday, the stake had a primary activity, a Pioneer Festival. We took some kids we are teaching (Paola´s younger siblings). It was so cute to see all the little kids perform pioneer dances. You can only imagine how cute it was to see little Bolivian children try and dance like the pioneers. I know it must have been strange for them because their style of dance is VERY different.
On Sunday, we woke early and went to Ward council. While in Ward council the bishop asked if we could speak in Sacrament meeting. It’s normal, and now not so stressful. We also taught the lesson in Relief Society, but we knew about that one and were able to plan a little bit. And to make it even better we had 7 investigators at church, the most in all my time in this area. Like I said, we are seeing miracles! Later that night the young women had their New Beginnings and we were able to take Paola. It was so cute. We fought hard to take a picture with her. Oh that girl….good thing I love her to pieces.
It has been a great week and we topped if off today. For P-day we woke up early and drove 4 hours to the jungle. I have been dying my whole mission to go to Incachaka. It is so pretty. I’ve never seen so much green in my life. It was muddy and wet. There were vines and weird birds and insects everywhere. We didn’t find any monkeys, unfortunately. God has incredible creations on this earth and I feel so blessed to take them in. We are tired, but SO excited for this week. To give everything we have and serve the Lord with all our hearts. We are looking forward to more miracles!
I hope you all have a great week, I love you and I pray for you always!
Love, Hermana Lomax
