la paz 23 - aug 8

hi fam.

So this was one of the craziest weeks of my misión, if not the craziest. On the bright side...i finally got the liahona with the conference talks from april!!! And that has been saving my life. I love this scripture in Romans 8:35, 37....”Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Lets see...we are teaching a lady name Patricia....she smokes a TON. She is 56 yrs old, but her boyfriend just got baptized and he wants her to stop smoking...she is super funny, not because she tells jokes, but just because she is super intoxicated and is super honest. She loves it when we come over, but always tells us she isn’t going to “transform” or be baptized. But then other days she says she wants to be baptized. She is making progress, slowly, but she is progresing. She is Catholic, and the other day she pulled out her Bible and started looking for where it teaches us that we should pray to Mary. She just sat there, opened up to a random page and began to silently search...then after about 5 minutes she gives up and says, “well it’s in there, you just have to look for it.” But she came to church for like 20 minutes, then left. And she has come to 2 baptisms and loved it. She is interesting, she actually knows a lot about the life of Jesus Christ and the apostles.

We have transfers next week. I think i will be staying here for my last transfer. I could be wrong, that is just how i feel. But we’ll see. I’m ready for a change, any change will be good. Thanks for the pics. I love you guys!!!!!!
