AHHHHH so this week was hard, for lots of reasons!
Today we have cambios! I am going to stay in my sector and my new companion will be Hermana Hoskins who is from Utah! What is happening is right now in our ward there are 6 missionaries - 2 elders, Me and my comp, and Hermana Borja and Hermana Hoskins. My companion and Hermana Borja have cambios and Hermana Hoskins and I will be comps here in Tullumayo. They are closing the sector of the other Hermanas, Tullumayo 3, so now there are only going to be 4 missionaries in our ward. It is much better because now we actually have work to do and people to visit!
This week was hard. Our family who was set to be baptized this month is now going to be baptized next month to make sure they are really prepared to make sacred covenants with the Lord. This week I learned a hard lesson that the Lord really has His timing and His way in ALL things! We were pushing for this baptism and wanted to believe that really this family was prepared. But the Spirit kept telling us that they arent. It is a hard things when you want something to happen but the Lord has other plans. He has His will always and we are subject to that either with faith or failing as my mission president has said. My testimony was strengthened a lot in the Book of Mormon. It is so key. It contains the truthfulness of everything! If we are not reading the Book of Mormon we wont really come to develop a testimony in this Gospel and in our Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for every moment that I have to testify of my Savior, the Book of Mormon, and this Gospel. Everyday I learn something new and feel the love of my Heavenly Father so much.
In other news, I taught an investigator couple how to play GO FISH yesterday! Super American and they loved it! Haha it is the best to teach the people here little American things.
TODAY I AM A REAL MISSIONARY! I am done with my training and starting my first cambio on my own more or less! My mom is being transferred to an area called Sicuani which isnt too far from Cusco - it is North I believe. I am excited to be staying in my area for a little bit more time because I know I have a lot more work to do here.
I love you all! Remember to confide in your Heavenly Father in all things. Have faith in our Savior Jesus Christ - he is the way, the only way!
