Week 64: Summer in Puerto Rico- Hot and Sweaty

Hola a todos! 

Puerto Rico is definitely entering the summer time because WOW is it starting to real boil up!! I'm pretty sure Hna Ahlander and I find new tan lines everyday haha! It's always a joy to have to apologize to people for being so sweaty!! I'm pretty sure that the heat is all that people are talking about now a days! We are still on water rationing and we've just heard that we are going to be on 3 days without water, and 3 days with - but it's always unpredictable so we constantly pray for rain! :)

Guess what?! Dora, our less active, got a calling!! WOO!! We are so excited and she is too!! She's going to be the one choosing and directing the music for sacrament meeting! She is always talking to us about music (she likes to write songs in English too) and so we thought this would be perfect for her! So we'll be choosing and practicing with her so she's already to start this next Sunday :) It's always fun to see the light that people have and their excitement as they start coming back to church, especially with a new calling (which is SO important for them!) and that they know they'll be serving the Lord and others! 

Maria Margarita is doing good, she is constantly reading and praying and even though she is still unsure about changing and everything, we saw a huge miracle this week with her! In the previous lessons that we've had, she has her own way of praying, the way she was taught growing up, which really is so great! But we talked to her the other week about the importance of ending in the name of Jesus Christ. To our surprise, when we passed with her on Saturday, we asked her to say the closing prayer and she ended in the name of Jesus Christ, which she has never done! It might not seem like a big deal, but to us it was! By small and simple things are great things brought to pass! Even in the change and conversion of a person - baby steps :) 

We also found another less active this week, her name is Quenia and she is so cute!! She's Dominican and I love her personality!! She is so fun! She's only been less active for about a year now and we really feel that we can help get her back :) We had a super spiritual lesson with her but the only thing is that she might be moving to Texas! So, we are hoping and praying that we will be able to her strengthen her up so she'll be ready to find the church out in Texas! It has always been so amazing to me to know that the Church is the same wherever we are! It MUST be true :)

Things are going good, the bishop has asked all the members to keep up with the references, since all of the converts in the past year from the ward have been references, so we'll see what will happen! I completely trust in the Lord because I know that when we do, it will all work out according to His plan, which is a lot better than anything we could ever come up with! Have a great week everyone!
