To start off, this week is officially the end of 1 transfer and the start of another transfer! I am staying here in Izalco with my same companion Elder Riding. So this is new for me cause this has only happened to me 2 times before this is my entire mission that I stay in the same area with the same companion. And this is Elder Ridings last change so he will finish his mission here with me.
I want to talk about a couple investigators we have been working with this change. Their names are Maria and Darianna. They are sisters, Maria is 20 and Darianna is 13. They have been seriously investigating the church this change and will probably be baptized very soon, within the next couple weeks. Last week we taught them about tithing, about how its a commandment with many blessings that we WILL recieve from God if we follow it. Then yesterday Maria and Darianna came to church, and Maria asked me where and how she could pay tithing. So I showed her where the envelopes are and how she can fill out the slip to pay tithing, and how she just gives it to the bishop when she is done. She then explained she wasnt payng fast offerings cause it wasnt fast sunday. So she is paying her tithing already and she isnt even a member yet. MIRACLES!
The mission is such a wonderful learning and growing experience. The longer that I am here in my mission, I realize and learn more and more that it isnt at all about me. As we do things to bless and serve others, we ourselves are expodentially blessed.
I love you all and thanks so much for all that you do and all your support. Have a wonderful week!
we made pizza with her, she is named sister calvo and she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet
