This week has been really good and really busy and DC and Maryland are super awesome!
TUES: was our pday because we had a training on Monday. we had a really awesome dinner with a hermana from Guatamala. It was awesome, she was so sweet and we had a lot of really good food, and then she gave us extra dinners to take home. Because all of the missionaries in our area are brand new we are doing a lot of work to get to know the members and the ward. She was so sweet and we were able to get to know her and talk about faith with her. After that we went tracting.
WED. Today was our first day with our main progressing investigator E. he is 17 and his family moved here from Peru. It was really good we got to teach him and his younger sister who was recently baptized. We had a really good lesson with him and got to know him more and we are excited to go back, He says he wants to meet more and learn more. They are a really sweet family and we really enjoy working with them. That night we continued to contact and look for more people to teach, we also stopped by some ward members houses
THURS: Thursday is the day that we work at the farm in Maryland that does service with autistic children. It is really fun to work there and be there with the other missionaries. we did a lot of work on the farm with the gardens and weeding. The farm is so pretty, I really like to be able to go up there every week.
FRI: We had planning for our week and our investigators. We had a lesson planned with someone that we had found contacting, and taught last week, but the lesson fell through and he was not there when we went by. That night we had a lesson with another family. G. moved from El Salvador and is a member, and her husband e. from Peru and their son r. are not members but are interested in the church. They were such a sweet family and we were able to show them a video about the restoration and talked about it. E. said that he really liked the story and we are setting another appointment for next week.
SAT. we had three lessons planned with less active members, and investigators but they all fell through, so we spent a lot of the day tracting and finding people, and also looking for more members of the ward.
SUN: Sundays are really awesome we have a lot of meetings but the ward is really great and i love being there and getting to know everyone. the members are so sweet and loving.
MON: pday we went to the mall and DC. it is really gorgeous here i love it. there is so much to see! we wanted to get sunrise photos so we went to the Lincoln memorial at 6:30 am but it was really stormy so we could not see the sun rise! but it was so amazing we saw a lot of monuments went to the national gallery and bought these really good things called pupusas from an El Salvador food truck.
DC and Maryland have been awesome I have really liked it here!
