Hola Mis Queridos!This week has been nothing short of crazy. The last five days have been some of the hardest, longest, most exhausting days of my mission, with the least results.
Guillermo (the first man we found in the trailer park), read 2 Nephi 31 that night. Then the next day called us with AWESOME questions about baptism and the Holy Ghost. He works 3 jobs, and so appointments are nearly impossible, but we've been working with him over the phone, short stop-by appointments. He is learning so quickly, and is really absorbing everything. It took him 40 minutes to say his first prayer. He said he knew we were right that Satan was working hard to make him feel that he didn't know how to pray, but we worked with him, and it was an amazing prayer, the spirit was so strong. He is so prepared!Every day I am more and more grateful for this gospel. The power that it has to change lives is like nothing I've ever seen. The truths, hope and LOVE that we have to offer people are messengers of Jesus Christ is so powerful. It would be so easy to become discouraged day in and day out, wading through torrential rain, finding next to no one to teach, but every day is such a blessing, and I know that there's a purpose behind everything.

So they "banned" grocery bags here, the trip was great in the rain. One by one with each box. Hermana Cooley's comment was "Welcome to Washington, where pot is legal, but plastic grocery bags aren't!"
