OKAY. Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers. I have been absolutely exhausted this week because we are working so hard. I really like my companion. We get along super well and she reminds me a lot of Kelly in some ways. At night before we go to bed we talk about everything and laugh and laugh. She is funny and direct, and a really hard worker. So this week we literally knocked it out and it was amazing. And we saw miracles!!!
The people are amazing here in Tejar! We are working in this area called La Lucha which means The Struggle. Its literally the hood. Everyone was looking at us like....what are they doing here? But the people accept us easily. We are teaching the coolest people, I'm serious! They have lots of struggles but we have had some really spiritual lessons.
Guess what? I met Jorges son and ex wife!!! They live here in this area! They are hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really know that God knows us because he put me in this area with this family.
Funny story....here in Costa Rica people never have crazy hair. Everyone puts their hair up or does something so that its not crazy. So we were in the middle of a lesson and I took my hair out because I had a headache, and our investigator left the room....and then she came back with a brush and said...do you want to do your hair? Please. hahahaha. It was one of those moments I think you had to be there.
Being an especialista? We call the hermanas every night and ask them how they are doing and their investigators and a bunch of info. I have to get used to being firm or correcting people when they need to be corrected because sometimes its necessary and I'm not used to telling people what to do! Im the one who needs to learn!! But I pray every time and Hermana Montoya makes fun of me because I always pace around when I'm on the phone. I believe the most important thing is to just show them love and concern because thats what we are here for. Im not stressed yet! But tomorrow we have the meeting with President! Im a little nervous. Our zone is really cool. This month we are going to be fasting every weekend. Its Presidents last month as president and we have big goals. There is a lot of sacrifice, but I have seen the blessings!!!!!
Im excited to skype!!!!!!!!!!! we are going to skype sunday night im not sure what time, but just be ready. and I haven't gotten my package but we're going to san jose tomorrow and ill get them!! Please tell grammy that i got her package and loved it!!!!!!!!!! i love the earrings and necklace! :)) And please tell Granmama thank you for the birthday money!! :)))) I have the best grandmas.
