Si Febrero es loco

'Si Febrero es loco, Marzo es otro poco'
Hola from the HOT HOT HOT Guatemala!
That is a little saying they have here, the weather in February was way weird, and that means March will be the same! I love it though, my skin is finally looking Guatemalan ;) But holy smokes, it's so humid.. I didn't think I could sweat so much in my life or drink so much water and not have to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes! 
How was your week?! How are all of you?! I sure miss you and I'm so thankful I have such a wonderful support system :) I am loving life and always have a smile on my face! How can I not, I'm doing the work of the Lord!
We had such a bomb lesson the other day with one of our investigators, her name is Lorena and she has a son that is a member, and she's had missionary lessons before, but just wasn't ready to take the plunge! We had a lesson on Faith and it wasn't going anywhere.. I ususally don't like to share with people my personal feelings and frustrations because I don't want them to have pitty haha! But I felt prompted to share 1 Nephi 3:7 with her and told her that life is full of challenges, but we just need to say I will go and do because the Lord has prepared us for every trial we are going to face. I just told her that I have so much faith and I always feel Heavenly Father's love for me when I pray and just plead with Him that I will be able to do what He would have me do. She teared up and said she wasn't going to worry about work, she would be at church on Sunday! Wooohooo! 
Juliana is doing so great, she is so excited to be baptized, we asked her how she felt about it and she said very blessed! We have been looking for a friend for her that lives near her and is her age because she needs a little buddy to hold her hand when we leave. We prayed and fasted and would you look at that, we found her one! We visited a semi in active family the other day and invited them to church and told the 10 year old about Juliana. They came and her and Juliana were skipping down the hallway and have plans for a little play date... ahhh I love this work!
We had THE craziest lesson. So we had contacted this family on Saturday and told them we would visit them the next day (Sunday) so we knocked on their door and they were so surprised! After the song and prayer and introducing ourselves, she was like, why did you choose us? Out of all the people on the street, why us? We didn't really know how to respond! She told us that she has family that are members of our church and they had invited them to an activity, but they didn't know anything about the gospel so they didn't want to go. I really hope that we were answers to their family members prayers because we see a lot of potential in them. But here's the weird part, they have a 5 year old and he is NUTS!! He was yelling in our faces and jumping up and down and running around and they said 'Vayanse feas!' which is go away uglies.. how nice right?! haha Have a wonderful week! I sure love you all and I love this work :)
Love your favorite Hermana,

  1. Hi my name is Laura North and my son is in the Cobán Mission also. We have a Facebook page for moms of the Guatemala mission and I was wondering if you (assuming it is mom updating blog) were interested in joining. It is great to get together and talk about our kids and the highs and lows of missions. If you are interested you can add me on Facebook Laura Dinoff North or shoot me an e-mail at Hope to hear from you! You have a beautiful daughter, it has been fun looking around her blog.
