I´m sorry to hear that the snow caused so many problems for many of you this week. It looks really pretty though. Mom, thanks for the picture, I laughed when I saw all that snow. The man next to me saw my computer screen a laughed as well, then he asked it was, so I told him and we both decided that the warm weather is preferable to that. Although, today is really warm...a little too warm (not to brag or anything) but I wouldn´t mind a little snow.
Okay, so Dad, I´m glad you finally got to see the pictures and liked them. Yes Brandi I am very tan, the tan line on my feet is rather entertaining though, when I take of my shoes it still looks like I have shoes on (just white, as that is the original color of my skin).
Oh and really, I have visiting teachers.....when should I expect a visit? hahaha, it´s kinda nice to know that I´m still thought about back home. I expect more frequent emails from now on, from those visiting teachers... Oh and Melissa thanks for your letter as well, your trip sounds like fun.
Mom, I´m glad that you are feeling better. Yes you can add Natalia as a friend, I´m almost possitive that she is a member of the ward here in Tigre, just that she has a different last name now because she´s married. I think I sent a picture of her and her family playing jenga, she has the two adorble little girls.
Poor Betsy, has to wait a little bit longer. I am excited to hear when the baby finally arrives.
As for my life here in Tigre.....We had interviews with President Gulbrandsen this week and that was really great. He actually reminds mem a lot of Bishop Atkinson, except he is a lawyer instead of a dentist. Personality wise, very similar.
We are really starting to see the results of having a member with us during our lessons. All three of the investigators we had in church this week were directly related to having a member with us during our visits. Two of them have been hard to get to church. They both have baptismal dates, but in order to keep them they have to come to church. Well she, Susan, wanted to go to church and one time we picked her up. The problem has been that her mom doesn´t want her to go to church by herself, she thinks that it is very dangerous to be out early in the morning on Sundays. She is a concerned parent, so she didn´t want her 18 year old daughter alone on the streets. Well finally her brother decided that he too wanted to come to church and a member, Hno. Acosta actually invited them and offered to come and pick them both up and that they would all go together. Yeah. This same member is stopping by their house tonight to help them with a problem with their roof. This family is really starting to feel the love of the Savior through the help of the members of his church. It truly does make a huge difference. I recently re-read the talk by President Monson to the Relief Society in Oct. He said,¨True Charity is love in action.¨ I love this. It really is true, in order to truly have a love for someone we have to do something, show it some how and when we do this we are that much closer to showing them a divine kind of love.
This week has been good,I´ve really started to take the hymn ¨count your blessings¨ to heart. All you really have to do is remember, remember the Lord and your blessing from him.
Well I think that´s about all I got for you this week.
My love as always, take care,
ps. I hope it warms up some for you!
