Week 90

Hi Everyone,
Well this week was really busy! We kind of forgot about Mother’s day coming up, but we remembered this morning right in time to plan it out!  Hahaha!
We found this new area that I had never been to before so we took some time out of our week to go exploring/contacting and it was pretty good! We met a lot of nice people and a few of them are very interested in our message.
Also it’s the rainy season so it has literally rained EVERY DAY for the past two weeks. Usually it just rains early morning and cuts off around 10 or 11 but sometimes it hits us all day long! So that is good for all the plants but it just makes out for a couple of wet missionaries. Luckily the rain here doesn't make you sick like the rain in the DR. That’s nice. But something really good/really sad that happened this week was that we challenged a member couple to find a friend that they think would be ready for the gospel and invite them over for a family home evening with us. We did it just so that they would cook us dinner, but they ended up bringing a friend that was taught by missionaries 15 years ago. She already had a testimony and had actually been attending church in a different place! We told her about the church that is closer to her house and she also wanted to be baptized but then her husband came back into the country and he doesn't want anything to do with us and told her she can't do any of that stuff. So that was sad. It’s hard to see how sometimes ignorance can be so hard on people. Like even if this gospel wasn't true,(but it is) the church doesn't teach anything but things that bless your life. But lucky for us, we have teachings that bless our lives and also the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as his authority. I am very thankful for the opportunity I have to not only have the gospel but to share it with everyone!
Also this week because of the rain, part of our area flooded, and we got to bike through knee high water. I love being a missionary!
