First off, guess who one the American Cup? CHILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It just so happened that the game was on the 4th of July : ) Everyone was decked out in Red, White, and Blue (Chile´s colors, too). There was much shouting, yelling, dancing, screaming, flag waving and more : ) We pretended that they were also yelling for us : ) My two favorite countries celebrating together : )
Yolanda Update! She´s progressing TONS!! This week was Fast and Testimony Sunday, a special Sunday once a month on which everyone has the chance to share their testimony during the Sacrament Meeting). Guess who gave the strongest, most heartfelt testimony I´ve ever heard... YOLANDA!!!! During the meeting, she leaned over and asked me who can give their testimony. I told her everyone is welcomed, and she could too! She latter told me that she felt the Spirit telling her that she needed to share her testimony : ) Yay!
We also gave her a new Book of Mormon that has the Doctrine and Covenants included. She nearly died of pure joy : ) AAAANNNNNNDDDD Juan, got to come with us too!! We were all very happy to share with him!
We also saved a puppy : ) One of our investigatores just got two new puppies, and we passed by last night to find one of them outside of the fence. Both were crying and trying to dig under the fence to let the other back in. The family wasn´t home, and I couldn’t leave the little thing outside in the dark. It would be dangerous for the little guy with all the other bigger, street dogs. I tried to catch him and lift him over the gate, but he wouldn´t let me! My companion pointed out that we often do the same thing, God offers to help us, but we refuse thinking its better to do it on our own. We chased him for a while with no luck. I decided to stop and pray and try one more time. Just as I finished the little guy wiggled through the fence! Awesome, right? At least that’s what the dog, my companion, and I thought until we realized that he could not get all of the way through, because the fences have chicken wire attached to them. . . at this point I feel like singing ¨dumb dog¨ with Annie. How in the world can I help him now!! Luckily, he started wiggling back out himself again, and bam!!! I realized he CAN’T run away from me now!!! Hahaha, so I grabbed the little guy and shoved him through the gate above the chicken wire!! Yay! Fastest answered prayer I´ve ever experienced :) I decided that I should learn from this puppy that it’s better to be humble and accept God´s help the first time : )
I love you all!!! And hope this week is wonderful!
