First of September! :D

This week has been a little crazy. I feel like it all went by in a blur.

On Wednesday, we had the pleasure of contacting a reference from our zone leader. She was very friendly and kind. She had been visited by the missionaries before quite a few years back. When she told us that they had only come 3 times, my companion and I felt a little bad trying to think of why they had stopped visiting her, maybe because of transfers and they both left or they missed their appointment and never took the time to come back? We didn't know....until about 5 minutes later. This woman is very very catholic and likes to Bible Bash. Of course we didn't bash back but oh my goodness. I sat and listened to her tell us that we needed to look through the eyes of God and not through the eyes of men and see that every person has the original sin (meaning we're all responsible for the transgression of Adam) and that we needed to realize that our Book of Mormon was full of errors when compared to the Bible and on and on. Man, was I ready to get out of there when we finally got to leave. My companion was a little angry and I was just a little frightened. Especially because my companion set another appointment with her! O.O Our next appointment is on Wednesday and I have no idea why my companion decided that it would be a good idea to return. Not that she has to worry though, seeing as how she has transfers.

Also on Wednesday, we found out that I'm going to be a trainer! O.O Talk about excited and terrified at the same time. Excited because the Lord and the President think I'm ready to train someone new and terrified because I don't think I'm ready at all. =P 

We had intercambios (exchanges) this week and it was awesome! I was in Amalucan with Hermana Martinez who is just the most lovely and kind person ever. I didn't want to leave her area or her. She was so encouraging and loving that I felt like I could do anything. :D 

We had the opportunity to do a lot of service on Saturday. We visited a less active member who broke a bone in her right arm and now only has one hand that works. We helped her fold her clothes and wash her dishes. It was great to finally get to do some service. Then we visited one of our investigators that has a water purifying business. She was alone and so we decided to help her with her work of fill up bottles and bottles of water and sealing them so that they can sell them. It was alot of fun and very very wet. =P
