No More Speaking English

Hey everyone!

So basically I am really mad at myself because I forgot my camera in the appartment and I have a lot of really good pictures to send you guys! So mad but it's okay.  You will have that to look forward to next week.

So guess what? I went on exchanges with Hermana Shannon this past week and I am going on exchanges with her again today! It is the weirdest thing ever teaching with her again but this time we actually know what we are doing haha. We were doing some reminiscing and it's amazing to think about how far we have come. It was so fun to see her again.

This past Thursday we had interviews with President Crawford. I have the best mission president in the world. He has one of the strongest testimonies I have ever heard and has one of the biggest hearts. While in my interview with him he asked "How often do you and Hermana Flores speak Spanish with each other?" I told him that we speak it everywhere but in the car and in the apartment. Then he said, "Thats terrific! I want you two to speak Spanish from the time you wake up in the morning to the time you go to sleep.  Can you do that?" So we don't speak English anymore! It has been one of the most challenging things of my mission but it has been such a blessing. I can already see that I have more confidence with my Spanish and it has already improved so much I can't even believe it...and it has only been 4 days!

So while we were knocking doors the other day we met this black man named Kevin. And we were having a little bit of a hard day, it was hot, we were knocking doors, 3 people canceled on us (you know usual missionary stuff). Kevin goes to the Baptist church down the street from his house. We bore our testimonies about the restoration and he just started tearing up and he said I am not interested in your message but thank you so so so much for coming by my house today. We then asked if there was anything that we could do for him and he said, "Actually yes.  Can we have a prayer?" So we held hands and said a prayer. I felt an overwhelming feeling of the love that God has for Kevin. 

Another miracle this week. We met an older lady named Lacy. She is from England.  You don't meet alot of people from there here in Texas! We met her as we were walking down the street. As we were saying goodbye to her she said, "You know, there is something different about you two. Thank you for sharing you light with me." It made me think a lot about the light of Christ and how I always want to have His light. It was such a testimony builder for me. The spirit confirmed to me many times this week that this is Christ's church and He loves us.

I'm so sorry I forgot my camera! Still can't believe it. I love you all so much you are always in my prayers. LOVE YOU, MISS YOU.
