This has been a fun week with my new companion, Elder Juarez. He is from Matamoros Tamaulipas which is really close to valle hermoso where my amazingly beautiful mother is from (: He is 19 almost 20 years old and he loves music. He plays the saxophone and clarinet! He is a really good missionary and came well prepared. He has already made good progress this week. He has been pretty tired, but that is normal starting out the mission. I have just been forcing myself to be happy all the time so that he wont ever get down! It is a good plan and we have been enjoying our time together!
This week we are going to concentrate more on the sisters area that just got added to ours. One amazing story this week was when we went to Sister Lili Caballeros house to share something with her and then ask for some references. The lesson went well and we decided to do the prayer kneeling down. As soon as we finished the prayer two women knocked on the door saying that they were looking for jobs and so Hermana Lili started to talk to them about different opportunities she knew about and then she just started talked about the church with them and she presented them to us right there on the spot, invited them in and had a lesson with them. 2 references literally given to us right after praying for them. They both live in our area as well. Our mission president just started a project called Mujer Samaritana, which included visiting active members to get references. Its amazing how the Lord blesses us when we follow the revelation our leaders receive. Another shout out to Letty, my beautiful mother, is that she gave me the same idea a long time ago and it has really been working (: I love all of you guys, especially my mami(: haha Have a good week!
