This week, the final week in the transfer, we shifted our efforts to finding and knocked on about a million doors... We taught 90 lessons (including contacts) and found 12 new investigators (which is a record for Hermana Loria and me.) We found alot of really cool prospects, including a woman whose granddaughter is serving a mission in Bolivia. We are really exited to visit with her becase she seems really friendly and open to the idea of the gospel.
I am a firm believer that their are some people, who are just prepared from the beginning to hear the gospel, and I think this is a great example of the power that the gospel has to change lives and the power that the example of a good person has in changing lives too.
We also did companionship exchanges (ordered by the president) with other Hermanas in another part of Posadas, in Villa Cabello. Hermana Runyan (newbie) came with me here in LaValle and Hermana Loria went with Hermana Kretchman (leaves for home tomorrow).
I had a blast hanging out with Hermana Runyan and we found five of our 12 new investigators with her (including la abuela de la misionera). She has tons of energy, which is something I lack sometimes, so I was super-exited to learn from her. She speaks really well, but has trouble understanding, and I am okay understanding and don´t speak very well, so between the two of us, we were okay.
Our new pension is really good for us, but we have had to pay for a few fixes and hookups for the utilities, which has made money really tight, but we have to deal with all of that when it comes.
Yesterday, the zone went to Iguazú falls, my second time going, and I really did not want to go again, because it was expensive, but it was Hermana Loria´s birthday and she really wanted to go, so we went. It was a ton of fun, and I got sunburned and wet and now we are paying for it... really hechopercha (hurting and aching and messed up-tired)
Again, like what happened at the ruinas and yacyreta, we had to pay significantly more that what we were expecting to pay because we are extranjeros, but the Zone Leaders got them to lower the price a little since we all live and work in Misiones, but we were still a little disanimados. But in the end, everything is fine, and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Transfers are this week and everyone is super anxious because there is going to be many changes in the zone, with two hermanas going home and many who have been here quite awhile. Hermana Loria thinks she is going to get transfered, but I really do not know or have any idea what is going to happen.
But I am hoping and praying for the best.
