Carmen is Awesome!

December 2, 2013

What´s up everyone? How is it going? This week has been pretty good and we´ve been working hard to find new people to teach. 
Dinner with the members

The highlight for teaching moments this week was with a lady named Carmen. She is about 54 years old and we found her through a member. Carmen is the one that I told you about two weeks ago, who found the Book of Mormon in the library. Well she has loved what she has read and learned so far. 
Simon and I

We left Carmen with the Book of Mormon, some pamphlets, and a Liahona because she told us that she loves reading and really wanted to learn more. So when we went to visit her again, we found out that she had read

through 2 Nephi 19 and also started reading the Index at the end and was at page 100. She had also read the pamphlets and remembers everything from them. 

It was so awesome! Carmen kept telling us how much she loves what she reads and feels full when she reads. Talking to her she strongly shows her desires to follow God and do what is right so she is now on track to be baptized on January 4th. Carmen even came to Stake Conference yesterday. It was about a 40 minute travel, but she went all the way to the stake center. During Stake conference people kept getting up and talking so it was hard to hear, but she was very happy to be able to go. 

My comp and I are in the process of setting up Christmas lights in the house and have been looking for a good tree.  We haven´t found one yet, but hopefully we´ll get one this week. On Thursday (Thanksgiving) we had interviews with the president so we went to Cartagena for that. The interview was pretty short, he just told me thanks for everything that I was doing and that this transfer I´m probably not going to train because only 5 missionaries are coming in, but the next transfers there will be 20 and 16 so I´ll probably train then! 

 Recently the whole stake and 70 have just been hammering on Ward Council so the bishop told us that we need to change things so that the ward can work better together with missionary work and not just talk about unimportant things and lose time. 

Oh also I found out that Reyla´s parents were baptized! (From my old area in Cevillar!) Today we are going to play soccer in Cartagena so I won´t be on to write again in the afternoon! I love you all! 

Abrazos y besos!
