But honestly It is a crazy life with these 2. Oh first, I am not with Hermana Ramos haha. She was only with us on Monday.. When went to the offices the next day and President was like uh.. this isn't your companion.. hahaha. The assistants think they are funny mixing up our companions. But I am now with the Hermana Ramirez and guess what?! She is from Honduras! Like my first "daughter" Hermana Godoy. iVIVA HONDURAS! haha She's a sweety. But you can tell she is going through the beginning mission blues. So I tried to help her have an extra great week this week but who knows.. maybe I have just made things worse.
The good news is that GISEL WAS BAPTIZED!! We went and talked with her on Tuesday and like I always say.. it was one of my favorite lessons haha. But honestly. We asked her all of the interview questions and then I asked her why she didn't want to be baptized on the 30th anymore. She said she just really wanted to be prepared and have everything organized. She is like Kristin (gonna make for a great church leader someday!) So I told her that is why we where there. So we sat done and talked about all her doubts. We planned the program, called the members to speak, went and looked for the baptismal clothes. It was great. Her daughter Kristin will be baptized the first week of July. She is waiting for her uncle (who is a member to come up and baptize her!) but I am sad I won't be there but all is well! They promised me photos!
Actually Kristin's primary president told us during lunch yesterday that in class yesterday they didn't have a teacher. So the primary president filled in. She asked all the kids what they learned the week before so that she wouldn't repeat the class... of course none of the kids remembered. She said that Kristin pulled out of her backpack a notebook and flipped the pages until she got to her notes from the Sunday before "Jesus in America with the Nefites." she had written down. haha. She is awesome. LOVE THEM!
We also found a bunch of new people to teach. With Hermana Ramirez we went out just talking with everyone in site. We found three REALLY great families! Here is too hoping for their progress! Two of them are these little old ladies.. let me just give a brief summary of each situation.
Carmen and Ania (mom and daughter and 3 granddaughters): They are awesome. Hermana Carmen has a brother who is a member that lives in California. She brought us in her house and first we started to talk about her family. She then goes well let me show you my family and brings us into this room full of Family History stuff.. books, crafts, pictures. It was awesome! They are awesome. We taught the about Family Nights and now they want us to come over and have a Family Night all the time haha.
Delia: We met her knocking doors. she is a widow. Her daughters and their children live on the same street as her. When we taught about the Plan of Salvation she couldn't control her tears. She told us she has been waiting for someone to tell her how she can see her spouse again someday. SO sweet. Then at the end we invited her to Gisel's baptism (we invited her on Wednesday and the baptism was on Saturday.) We were horrible missionaries and totally forgot!! She called us up on Saturday "Sisters, where are you? I am ready to go the the baptism!" I am like "sorry.. but who is this?" suchhhhh a fail. haha but we went running for her house and there she was waiting for us outside in her cute little Sunday dress!
Yolanda: We passed by her house and she was outside throwing out some garbage. We greeted her "Buenas Tardes!" and she just goes "Come in! Come in!" So we went inside and she just starts having a conversation with us like we had known her for years.. It really feels like we have! She told us about how she to is a widow of like 15 years. We then told her we are missionaries. She asked from which church. When we told her she goes "My dad was baptized in your church when he was 100 years old!!" I couldn't believe it. :O haha It was all a crazy story and an excellent visit.
This is only a summary of these woman. They are great! It was a week packed full of crazy stuff but man! It was a good week!
I can't think of much us that I have to say. But It is a CRAZY life right now! I think we may be having another sisters meeting here soon.. Here's to hoping they don't ask me to teach again.. I am learning A LOT right now! I know it is the end of my mission and I should know everything and all that. But by being the "teacher" here in San Jose with my two newbies I am learning a TON too.. It is all just crazy! The good things is it really doesn't feel like the "end". The better is that it isn't the end! :)
Well, here's my "hello" from San Jose!
Love you guys!
