Week #40 *May 5, 2015

Hey everyone,

Wow this week has gone by so fast it seems like I just wrote yesterday. 

I got the best new today that Lorena, in my old sector has a baptism date.  We worked really hard with her and I am so excited. It sounds like my old sector is doing really good and I am so excited for all of the people there.

Our sector is doing good.  We have had a lot of support from the ward this week. They have started visiting the people we are working outside of our visits and ithas been a huge help.  We have a lot of people that are struggling to make it to church on Sunday, which has been frustrating, but we are going to work really hard this week and hopefully we can help them to be able to get there.  

This week we taught Relief Society about visiting teaching, as the majority of the sisters here struggle with visiting teaching. Almost no one is doing it, but the class went really well and I hope that it will be able to help them to have more excitement about there visiting teaching, as the can make a huge difference and it is a huge part of our work here.

Maria Olga is still doing really good she was going to go to church yesterday with her two daughters,  but last minute in the morning didn’t go. Please pray for her she has a lot of interest, but her husband is only home Sundays and it makes it hard to go to church.

This week we were praying to find opportunities to do service with my companion.  We were walking down the street, when a young women called to us she had left her keys in the door and was trapped between her door and the fence.  We let her use our phone and no one answered and tried to figure out what to do, but couldn’t find anyone to help and so she decided to wait until her husband got home that night. We left her with some pamphlets to read, but then we both decided that we had to do something because this was the opportunity that we were praying for. We ran to the house of Alejandro and asked if he had a ladder and with luck he had a small ladder that we were able to take to the house. My companion climbed the ladder to get over the fence and tried to climb up to the upstairs window, and couldn’t reach. But a tall man passed with his kids and we asked for his help.  He was able to climb the ladder and enter the house for the keys. It all worked out so perfectly and she invited us to come back later and share our message with her. We are so excited for her.

Also this week we brought a Book of Mormon to Alejandro and he was so excited when we saw it was his.  He is still trying to find a time that we can teach his whole family. I don’t think his wife is so interested, but he is working on it and he has a lot of interest.  We are so excited to work with him.

I am running out of time but it is all going really good just loving every moment and trying to work hard.  More than anything we are trying to find new people to teach as we need new people. But we have so many less actives, that they seem to take up a lot of time.

Sorry for the short letter this week, I will write more next week

I cant wait to talk to you all for mothers day!

Love ya,
Hermana Stringham
