Nicaragua here we go!

These past 2 weeks have been a little crazy. The week before last week we had 2 other sisters come live with us because they were opening an area and didn't have a place to stay but also because one of the sisters started to have depression and anxiety so we had to keep an eye on her and this past week she went home so that she could get the help she needed. That`s part of the reason I didn't write last week was because of what was going on. I didn't have changes but my companion did and now I have a new comp, Hna Lopez from Costa Rica and man is she Rica. She comes from a very wealthy family. We also had interviews with president this past week and it was once again AMAZING! 

Also, Nidia was supposed to get baptized this past Saturday but didn't because she was scared and had doubts. So we brought over a recent convert that helped her a lot and shared her experience and how she was scared but the blessing after are so great! It was a great lesson! Then on Sunday she came to church and felt the spirit so strong that she cried the first two hymns but then when we sang the last hymn it was "Praise to the Man" she stopped and after asked the Relief Society President about it. Then during Relief Society we sang about the first vision and then the lesson was about Joseph Smith. When we showed up to her house, she told us that she didn't want anything to do with the church, that we were nice and everything but that she can't join a church that ........Well we spent an hour trying to explain everything to her but she wouldn't accept it. I think her sister told her something and the man that she stopped seeing so that she could be baptized. After the lesson we asked her to pray that night and ask if the church was true and then left and I cried and cried and cried. I love that women so much and her saying she didn't want anything broke my heart. I've been rejected before but that was a kick in the heart. 

I've learned that right before somebody is going to do something great, there is always going to be trials, and satan is going to try and do everything to try and get you from fulfilling your potential.

Love you guys!

I can only write for a few minutes but I want to tell you guys that I´m alive and being Hna Lider is exhausting but it´s good! This week on Wednesday we have to meet with president as liders and then on Thursday we have interviews as a zone with president. This past week was crazy but hopefully this week Hna Nidia will be baptized and please pray for her! El Abogado came to church and said that he felt so much peace and that´s exactly what he´s looking for! Anyway! I love you guys! Have a good week!
