Where do I begin.....

It's been really busy, but alway fun.
Transferes are this week. I am staying in Des Moines and training. I'm a little scared. I feel like I just left the MTC. But I know that President Jergensen receives inspiration from the Lord so I know that is what the Lord wants me to do. Last week at church we had 0 people come to church and we were really sad because there were some that we really thought would come. This last Sunday we made pancakes at Ana and Aldo's and afterwards they followed us up to church. We had a train of cars follow us, it was awesome!!!!! So Ana and Aldo, their two kids.
Aldo's brother Ricado, and Ana's uncle Guzlavo all came to church. There was still a lot of other people that we really really wanted to come to church and didn't but still we were so excited. It turns out they already have people they know from a long time ago in our branch.

I'm amazed all of the time of the Lord's hand in this work. time we were in our car trying to decide what to do so we prayed and when we opened our eyes we saw Rosio drive up in her car. So we got out and taught her. The Hispanic people are so amazing! They will let you into their home right when they meet you. We were walking around outside and started talking to this man, Nicolas. We asked him if he'd want to learn and he told us we could teach him right then. So we followed him to his house and started teaching him and his wife. They have such an adorable famile. I LOVE it when the parents have the kids sit down to listen with us. I definately think it's something that I should do more, inviting everyone to listen. We started teaching Diavid and Jessica and she called her 3 kids to come sit down and listen and we taught them all about faith. We read in Alma 32 abnout the seed and had the kids pretend like they were growing a plant with their arm because they were "feeding" it by praying and reading the scriptures. Something else we've been doing that I think is really cool is a lot of times the parents are afraid to pray but somehow it doesn't seem as scary if they're helping their child pray.. so they've done that a couple of times. It's really cute!
Well, I love you all!!!
