So this week so so hot. Seriously, I have never been so hot in my whole life. I seriously dont stop sweating. So gross. And if you dont drink enough water, your head starts to hurt and you see spots everywhere. So lesson learned: drink more water!!!
K this week was holy week. It is a Catholic holiday where for one week they decide to actually live their religion and do as the catholics believe. So all week they pray to god or actually to their Santo Ninyos. They are the Saints of the cAtholic Chruch. They on friday they believe is the Death of Christ. And because that is all the focus on, all shops are closed and people stay inside to more the life of christ. They call is good friday. It blows my mind that this is the day that is so holy, everything is closed, but every Sabbath day we have, we can remember him in the same way and all shops are open. Even on Easter, everyone was out and not really going to chruch. Man, they are so lost. They need to listen to us and then they really will have something to be happy about.
So even with not a lot of success, the lord still blesses us. We have a whole family that committed to be baptized next month, a mom dad and son. They are super interested. But they jadn't come to church so we werent sure if they really would. But sure enough, yesterday the dad and the son came for all 3 hours of church. During sacrament meeting they sang the hymns and I guess the boy participated in his primary class. We are praying for this family and hoping to see a miracle. They said that they enjoyed it and want to come back to church again. AH, the lord is mindful of us. Even when things are hard. he still loves us.
the mission is great, best thing of my life!! Thanks for all your support
Love, Sister HOpkins
