Sooo this week was pretty uneventful... we had a baptism lined up for Sunday. She was interviewd and everything, but the baptism didn't happen. I am learning LOTS of patience here, but more importantly to trust in the Lord´s timing.
Saturday night we were running around 9:30 am until 9:00 at night. All of our lessons that day were toughhhhh. Lots of our investigators were having doubts so we were spiritually and physically drained. Wellington, an investigator that we have been teaching for about 4 weeks, asked us to never come back....so you could say it was a hard day. As we were walking home, we heard a car honk behind us and then a lady in our ward pulled up beside us and said, `´Get in Sisters. I am taking you home.`` That little act of kindness meant so much to me. I know the lady in our ward had much to do. It was 9:00 pm and she was running to the store to buy things to make Sunday dinner, but she stopped to offer us a ride. Do a little act of kindness for someone this week :)
Also this week my companion and I were not getting along so great, and one night we both snapped. (No... missionaries aren´t perfect hah). As I was on my knees asking my Father in Heaven for help a thought came into my mind that I needed to really think about her and how Christ would resolve the problem. The next morning we spent 2 hours conversing, and by the end of it we were both in tears. We each thanked each other for the opportunity we have to be companions. It may all sound cheesy, but I have learned how to better resolve my problems. Before my mission I would have just stayed quiet or blamed the problem on others. However, we need to be humble and have true charity for others. Through the Spirit we can see others through Christ´s eyes.
Scripture of the week: ``Ora, quando nosso coração se achava deprimido e estávamos para voltar, eis que o Senhor nos confortou e disse: Ide para o meio de vossos irmãos, os lamintas, e supportai com paciência vossas aflições; e eu farei com que tenhais êxito`` -Alma 26:27
