Chapter 18 - Goodbye Guayaquil
So this week went by really fast. I honesty can't really remember a lot of what happened this week, but it was good. We had good days and bad days but it all ended up okay at the end of the week. The Lord really does help us in this work!
So, Stefania. She is super great but earlier this week we went to visit her and we were teaching a lesson and she told us that she really isn't sure about baptism. Ah, it was so hard to hear because she also explained that she had her other church that she goes to and has gone there for a long time and just didn't konw how she felt about being baptized in another church and stuff like that and oh, it was hard. But we just listened. We wanted her to know that we were there for her and that all we wanted to do was help her. She is so great and she would come to church and she would read the Book of Mormon and didn't really have any other problems, only a testimony. She did say, however, that she has never prayed about the Book of Mormon which is really important so we asked her to continue to read and then to pray to know if it's true and we know, as it says in Moroni 10, that if we pray about the Book of Mormon, we will receive an answer and that's what we want for her. She still meets with us, we are just trying to help her along.
So, goodbye Guayaquil....yeah, I got transferred! Wow. It was crazy. They called last night and none of us in the house thought that we would be transferred, but here I am, sitting in my new sector with my new companion...well she's not really a new companion...it's Hermana Gonzales!! Yeah, I'm back with my mom haha I am in a place called Portoviejo and I have heard great things about it! My sector is called Doce de Marzo (which yes, is literally 12th of March, don't ask me why, I have no idea). I am so excited to see what this new sector brings. It's a lot different than Guayaquil but I think it will be really great.
I hope everything is going good for you guys and that you keep reading your scriptures. Thank you for all the love and prayers!
