HOW ARE YOU GUYS? I hope youre enjoying the wonderful Texas summer (ha just kidding I know its miserable). This week has been better than the last week. Wanna know why? Well, just wait a minute...
First of all, whoever told me that "when it rains in Santiago the streets turn into rivers" was a liar. The streets turn into flippin oceans. I kid you not! It is the craziest thing I have ever seen in my life.....hahahaha the cars are literally swimming and for some reason I find that the funniest thing ever. Earlier this week it was raining SUPER hard and me and Hna. Valladares had to go to the center of Santiago for an appointment. Welp, we came up from the metro and I literally couldnt believe how much water there was. Funny thing was, I wasnt wearing rainboots (I actually dont have rainboots) so when we took the micro and finally had to get off, the water was literally up to our knees and it was so freezing cold that I had a mini flash-back to when we were on trek in Alaska and us teenagers, dressed up as Pioneers, had to cross the glacier-fed rivers. Miserable. But instead of complaining, Hna. Valladares and I were literally laughing our heads off. It was a pretty great, painful moment.
Second of all, Beatrice Andrea was BAPTIZED THIS SUNDAY and it was the most wonderful experience.
|We're braiding Beatrice's hair!|
Beatrice bore her testimony after, saying she was so thankful that we came to their house that one day, a little more than a month ago...that we changed her life. But obviously WE didnt do anything. It was all the Spirit, it was all this Gospel. It changes people. It changes families. (Little somethin extra= Hna. Valladares and I looked like complete noobs. We forgot to bring a towel so we had to dry off pobrecita Beatrice with paper towels and she was shivering and we were all laughing. hahahaha you live and you learn right)
