Alguien, Ayudenos!!

Hello hello family and friends!!
What a week, I don't even know where to start there are so many stories! Hermana De Leon and I are still companions!! Woohoo!! And we had a little guest visit our house this week, dang lizards, I swear they can smell fear and like to torment  me wherever I am. We came home from a long day and there a lizard was on the wall, Hermana De Leon is scared of them too so we were in big trouble! After trying to figure out what to do and creating many strategies that we never actually tried because that would mean one of us would have to go near the ugly thing, we decided to just sit on the other side of the room and try to not think about it.. I thought I was being very helpful though by saying Alguien ayudenos (someone, help us) out the door :) 
Okay, now to the good stuff!  It was like 8:20 and our member had to go which meant we couldn't teach any more lessons, Hna De Leon was like, well let's go home! I didn't want to though because we still had 40 more minutes left in the day! We made a deal that we were going to knock on 5 doors and then we could go home, my idea! haha We knocked on doors 1 and 2 sin exito, then door 3 came. We knocked and like 8 girls answered, it was a mom and her daughters. We made an appointment to come back another day and explain our message and why we were here knocking on their door! We went and had a lesson and found out that they really need the gospel in their lives, everyone needs it, but these girls are ready to have it, especially Leslie. She's my favorite investigator so far. Everytime I teach her I can just relate, she said that she felt that she was so alone in the world. I shared that sometimes I feel like that too, I have a hard time understanding people and I can't talk very well and it becomes very lonely at times, but I have faith that everything will be okay and whenever I feel alone I pray. I challenged her to do the same! We went back another day for a lesson and she told us that she was unhappy and she had a ton of laundry to fold. Before the lesson we helped her finish folding laundry and she started to cry! She has to work so much and doesn't have time to take care of her son, so her sister in law is taking him.. I felt so bad :( I have so much hope for her, she just needs to come to church, but because of work, she can't.. ugh!
Carlos is still doing great, smart as ever and so ecstatic and filled with the light of Christ already! He told me my Spanish was really good, but sometimes he has a hard time understanding me haha toda dia cada dia..!
Oh, we were waiting for our member to get ready and her daughter was making tortillas so we decided to help. I'm basically a latino when it comes to tortillas.. I can shape them and flip them over!! Hermana De Leon hasn't mastered flipping them yet.. heehee! I might not be very good at spanish, but I can flip tortillas :) 
 I love you all so much! I hope you have a great week :)
Love your favorite Hermana,
Hermana Brems
