Last Transfer

This week was alright. We didn't have as many successes as we wanted but we were able to have a good day yesterday. All the appointments we had all fell through and we didn't know what to do. Finally on Sunday we called and talked to the dad of the Family Caal and he said that they would come to church so we passed by their house to bring them. The dad wasn't there and the family had no idea what we were talking about. So we went back to the church (we live like two houses away from it) and we really discouraged.  On top of that, when the meetings started Marta wasn't there. We had had a really good lesson with the less active members that she works and lives with and they were going to bring her and they didn't show up. My companion and I were super disappointed. We were fasting because it was fast Sunday and I started to pray. I just wanted to go back to the house and cry. But then Marta and the family showed up. That made things better. Also when the third hour of church was starting, we had already headed for the Relief Society, and one of the elders came and got us and said that we had a family of investigators there. We couldn't believe it and when we saw them it was the family Caal. We felt so much better. After a horrible week and then this, we didn't know what to do. But this made everything better. In divisions I was able to visit the family Caal with a couple that speak Q'eqchi' that were able to really explain the church and meetings and everything to them. I really didn't understand anything.....but another member that was with us explained to me what she understood of what they were saying and it was super good to help them come back to the church.

Things are going well here. The other lady, Gladis Caal, that lives on the side of Dunia (the family that Marta works for) is going alright. Her husband doesn't want anything and she isn't sure what she's going to do. We have a FHE planned for her with Dunia, the family, and Marta so we hope that that goes well.

We're possibly going to baptize this month because there's like 4 people that don't show up in the church records, so we're going to baptize them haha. What do you say to free baptisms haha! But it's good though. One is a less active that we're working with that's really working on coming back and we were worried that maybe she has problems with chastity so that makes it easier to bring up the topic because they have to pass the baptismal interview.

Well you all know that I'm doing great and I'm happy so I hope that you're all doing well. Be safe and love you tons!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah and my companion and I didn't have transfers. Yes Hermana Ramos (my first companion) goes home on Thursday and today she's been with us. It's been nice to see her.
