Hermana Brems, como las Salchichas...

Why hello everyone!
How was your week? Mine was pretty good here in Salama, it was a little bit of a roller coaster, but that's the mission life :) We'll get the bad news over with, our baptism that we were going to have can't get baptized, his mom won't sign the baptism papers... so sad. We're going to work with her a lot, he really wants to be baptized and I know with faith and lots of prayers she'll come around! Changes, I am staying in my same area with Hermana Portillo!!!!! Wooooohoooooo!! I'm pretty excited :) Hermana Benavides is going to Peten, she's not so excited, but that's where the Lord needs her, so how can she complain, right?! This week we taught a family, well, boyfriend/girlfriend. She's a less active member and they've been dating for 2 years. But holy smokes, he wants to be baptized, get married legally and in the temple!! He definitely has his eyes on the prize- eternal life!! Hahaha it made me so happy! They've visited the temple in the Cap and he has a picture of it. Hopefully we'll be able to get them married soon and him baptized so they can start for time and all eternity soon :) The funniest thing happened Saturday morning at 4am. I was sound asleep and all of the sudden I hear Hna Benavides say, Hermana Brems someone is trying to break in!! I leaped out of bed (with pinky in hand) grabbed the phone and had the zl's number ready. Then I came to my senses and went and looked what was going on.. the wind was making the door to the room shake a little bit, that's all! But we have been laughing about it since then, my heart was racing so fast!! haha About the title, I never realized how hard 'Brems' was to say until I came here, but luckily there' a brand of salchichas (hot dogs) that is Bremins, so that's how I introduce myself now, the people get a kick out of it everytime :) hahaha Well, that's about it for me, have a wonderful week everyone! I love you so much, thank you for your prayers and support! 
Love, Hermana Brems
