"The past is to be learned from but not lived in."
Today was Hna Vasquez's first Sunday in the mission! And it was actually a good day, to be honest. Normally Sunday's are hard days for me. But we had 3 investigators at church! Whoo! That was awesome.
And we had lunch and a meeting with Bishop Cuello, and we went looking for a lady that we had met the other day but she didn't want to talk to us, so we went contacting, and we found this awesome family! They said that is was a miracle that they were all together as a family and relaxing outside and that we passed by at the moment, because they normally live apart and work on Sunday and all that and are never together like that. So that was really neat. And they understand everything we taught them and had good questions and were calm and receptive. That was a blessing for us. And I really hope we can find them again!
And then we went on a contacting spree because I was full of the Spirit and nobody we met was receptive but that didn't matter because I was happy and full of energy. When you feel like that you gotta take advantage of it, because contacting when you're tired and discouraged is absolutely horrible. But I had Hna Vasquez start a few contacts, so she got some good practice in as well, she was a little nervous, but I was all bouncy, so it worked out well. And after a time it wore off and I returned to normal missionary mode, so we visited a member that's having a hard time right now, and then a brother and sister who aren't members, but the husband of the sister is. So that was an interesting lesson. And we had dinner! Tortillas with quesillo and Kraft cheese, and beans and orange juice. Good stuff. I'm definitely making tortillas and quesillo at home.
