This week we decided to try a new sector of the city and it was GOLDEN! We had been feeling a little at a loss because we don´t have tons of investigators (people we are teaching) but when we went at it with all of our force and tried something new, we were blessed with people to help! One women I talked with asked where I was from, because she thought from my style that I was French, hahahahahahaha well, according to one middle age Chilena women I make a bike and helmet hair look stylish, and That’s Enough for Me : )
My Spanish, as always, is improving every day and having a Latina Companion helps ALOT!! One of my favorite parts about having a Latina companion is that at nights for an hour or two I get to help her learn English! This has really helped me understand Spanish and how it relates to English! Everyone I met here, who speaks English even a little bit, wants to practice with me : ) I even had one man stop me on my bike and ask if we had English lessons. I am happy to help! My Spanish is not perfect but it’s enough for me!
We are teaching some really awesome people here! One of our investigators is named Alma, she is 20 has a 2 year old and is married. She often feels lonely because her parents died when she was very young and she has no other family, I love seeing her feel more and more comfortable with herself every time we visit! This gospel really can change lives! She told us yesterday that she knows this is true because she feels something different when we teach! I know that is the spirit! We are not always the best teachers, but I know with all of my heart that if we are brave and true that our best efforts are enough for God!
When you are feeling inadequate remember, You are Enough!
I hope this letter finds you all well! You are awesome!
