It's raining, it's pouring!
Rain! The rainy season has officially started here in Guatemala. This week it rained a ton! Its really nice though, it was getting really hot for these past few weeks.
This week went well, we found a new family to teach. The mom is catholic, the dad doesnt go to any church. We had a great lesson with them and we have another one with them today. We had 4 investigators in church which was awesome! Rosa and her daughter, along with a lady named Betza and her son. We put a date with our investigator Lupe for the 13th of June. I would say things are going fairly well here!
This week we had interviews with our mission president. I really like something he said, "We can fill our day with activities, or we can fill our day with results." I think a lot of times as missionaries, students, etc. sometimes we feel like we are doing a lot because we are busy. The truth is though, if what we are doing doesnt help us accomplish our goals, its a waste of time. We have to be obedient and work hard if we want to have miracles. The mission is a time for us to change and become our best selves.
I love fasting, I think its such a wonderful blessing. Its super hard here in the mission because we still have to work, but I sure can feel the blessings. I love being a missionary because we get to help so many people. Its a great blessing and I know it will bless my family and friends. I love you guys!
