Hey everyone!!!! I love love love reading your emails every week. I laugh so hard and everyone in ciber looks at me like I'm a freak.
BUTTTTT....I have lots of exciting news.
1. Bendjy got baptized. Yes, H Grover and I pulled off a baptism. Milagro. He even came early to his baptism. It went flawless and I wanted to cry. We've known Bendjy for a while, but thought he wasn't interested. Turns out he was very interested. Bendjy is friends with Daniel and got to know him through Daniel. He's come to church quite a bit, but we always thought he never understood. This week he was like ,"Hermanas, let's go. Teach me everything because I want to be baptized Saturday." And that he did.
2. I left Republica. NOOOO! Yes we had cambios and I'm no more a city slicker and my comp isn't Hermana Grover. My new comp is from CHILEEEEEE!!! And let me tell you she is Chilean, but super awesome. Yesterday at church Juanita and Ricardo cried and told me never to forget them. Then they gave me a hymn book in english. I sure love that sector with all my heart and the many people I met and taught. Hermana Grover is now a trainer in our old sector and is going to KILL it!!! My new sector is La Sauce...and it's huge!! It's the country part of the mission, and it's the biggest sector in the mission I'm told. We are getting bikes...yikes. I am super excited and am looking forward to the many adventures I will have here in el campo!
This week will be fun as I get to know a new zone and sector. Sure love you all and I know that the church is true and que Jesucristo vive!
My home word for you all is to read the last talk from Elder Holland in the last conference. It's the pep talk we all need.
XOXO Hermana Brinkerhoff
