July 27, 2015 Bravo Bragado

Querido Familia y Amigos!                                          July 27, 2015

We had a flash on Tuesday, so now a I have a new companion again! Hermana F- is my eleventh
Hermana Flores y Yo
comp. I am finishing the second half of her training, so she is my hijastra (step-daughter). She is from Tacna, Peru! So that´s good, since she already speaks the language! Except it makes my idioma look worse haha. Also, since I try to speak more sofisticated like she does now. :) She is also super short, like 4´6. So the bike is too big for her, even with the seat all the way down. She is just learning to ride it, so that makes it even harder. But she is progressing a lot! Luckily, Presidente is going to give us money to buy a smaller bike for her. :) 

Crazy crazy week. So Tuesday we spent the whole day traveling to Ramos and back for the split. We have spent the rest of the week trying to find investigators, menos activos, and trying to get to know the members so that we can figure out who to work with whom, and what is what. Opening an area is hard! 

Bragado at night from ourpench!
We found a family who are super awesome. They are twins, brother and sister. We talked to P- the first time, and the second time E- was there too, and she explained all of the Restoration to him. They both understand very well, and have really good questions. P- read what we left for her the first time. We invited them to be baptized, and they were a little bit hesitant and want to wait and see. But, they are super buenos, and we are praying for them that they can progress a lot! 

We also found a woman named D-. She is friends with a Menos Activa, and has attended church a few times already. She loves going to church, and says that she feels  a ton of peace when she goes. We are going to explain baptism to her next time we go and invite her to be baptized! 

HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY TO STERLING! I hope you love your 100 mile bike ride! Woot! When you finish with that, you´ll be just about ready to go on the mission and bike all day every day! I love you! Capo! 

Weekly Challenge: What is missing in your life? What more do you want to accomplish? Have a prayer session with Heavenly Father, write down things you want to pray about so you don´t forget, after every question pause and write down the thoughts and feelings that come to you! Act on the answers you get! 

Love you all lots! Prayers for your missionary efforts! 
Love, Hermana Durfee
