So..... Mom speaks Spanish somehow? Google translate? Or did Mom order Rosetta Stone and become fluent in Spanish in one week? Something's going on here...
*(For those reading this, I (Peg) had Lindsey's boyfriend, Dallin, help me write a whole paragraph in Spanish at the beginning of my recent letter to Jared. :)*Yes Mom, that was me in the middle with the glasses on. They were Elder Spellacy's glasses, I just stole them for a second. Elder Spellacy literally has the worst eyesight ever, and the glasses that he has reminded me of Mom's glasses that she used to wear. Only Elder Spellacy's were like half the size of Mom's ;)
This week was alright.... We're really strugglin with our investigators, none of them are really progressing. I've been getting down on myself a little bit lately because in my time here, we've only had one baptism, and we aren't anywhere really close to having another one. But I realized something yesterday at church. Even though we aren't bringing too many investigators to church, we are bringing a bunch of old less active members. People like Bernardo, this other guy named Mario, A 17 year old kid named Carlos, a 30 year old return missionary named Julio, who has been struggling with alcoholism for years now, and an older sister named Berna, all came to church with us yesterday. I consider that a success... and every one of them is showing great progress.
I feel like sometimes, we need to widen the vision to see the areas that we really are doing well in. Sometimes, we focus too much on one area, and when we don't see success there, we think we're failures. But there are always other successes, especially when we're involved in the Lord's work. Because in the work of the Lord, no effort is in vain.
Love you all TONS!! Have an awesome week!!
