Soy la Hermana Holcomb y, la misionera de la inglesia de Jesucristo de los santos de los ultimos dias! So thats pretty much the extent of my spanish learning for this last week. We went on exchanges with the spanish sisters training leaders and had most of the day in spanish. I also learned how to say my testimony in espanol :) Yo se, Jesucristo vive y, El nos ama y mediante la expecion todos podemos tener el perdon. En el nombre de Jesucristo, Amen. Pretty cool, huh?
Anyways this week was full of suprises including having to speak in spanish, pretty much all day. I'll start with Monday, good ole p-day. We played basketball with our district, because the zone leaders never told us that they were going to be late and apparently it was at a diffrent building. It was kinda frustrating, but turned out anyway. We had a lesson with a less active member of the church, we taught about patience.
Tuesday we district meeting which was awesome, as always. We also had a lesson with Linda and Matthew. They both went really well, both getting ready and preparing for baptism. :) We also had a Sister Mtg. Which to me was kinda strange. Personally I dont enjoy being in large groups of young women. And when I say large, I mean about 45 sisters. We mostly just asked questions about anything, and it was funny because all the questions that the sisters had were in the white handbook anyways. && THANK YOU FYFFE'S FOR THE PACKAGE :)
Wednesday we met with Linda again to teach her more! She's so awesome! :)
Thursday was the exchange day! I was Hermana Holcomb for a day! :P Also that night I got the call from Sister Carroll, that Linda's friend had passed away the night before and decided that she wanted her baptism on the 14th, instead of the 21st! So we had our first baptism! It was great! She told us that she connected with us immediatly and that she wouldnt have joined the church if it wasnt for us. :)
Friday we spent most of the day preparing for Linda's baptism, had a lesson with Matthew, and had Linda's baptism interview! It was defiently a crazy day!!
Saturday we had Linda's baptism and went to LOTS of ward parties :) with LOTS of yummy food. :P
Sunday, Linda was confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. :) And one year from Saturday she can go through the temple to recieve her endowments!!
