Splitting the area!!

This week was definitely different! After I wrote the letter last week, we got a call that the police were on strike and not working until they got more money like they do in sports haha, So we weren't allowed to leave our apartment more on Monday, any of Tuesday, and then had to be in every night by 6:30 at the latest. So that kind of got resolved Wednesday and now we can stay out until 8 starting today, but we heard that they were going to do it again for even more money this Friday, so we don't know how much time we´ll be out later this week. 

But, one day we found two new investigators, Ivan and Daniel, and Ivan started going on about how he hasn't found the truth in any other church but could feel it when we were talking and then Daniel told us that when he saw us walking down the road towards his house that he saw an angel walking with us. I´m not saying it´s true for sure but it´s pretty cool to think about if we have this presence with us. Then, all of wednesday and part of thursday we weren´t doing normal missionary stuff, because we found out that we are going to get two more elders in our area this week so we had to find them an apartment and buy all the stuff for it! So that was fun and now we will have 4 elders and 2 sister missionaries in our area which is awesome!!

Nothing much happened other than this because of how much we were stuck in our apartment this week, but I had one last thought. This is a gratefulness challenge. To find and think of 100 things that we are thankful for:

10 physical abilities we have
10 material possessions
10 living people
10 deceased people
10 things in nature
10 things about today
10 places on earth
10 modern inventions
10 foods
10 memories

And after you have thought of or written down all of these things, get the Christmas spirit a little more and be thankful for all the things you have and be a little more charitable and willing to give. I hopw we can all do this, especially around Christmas but even during the rest of the year. Thank you to everyone for the constant support and I hope to hear from you soon!!!
