Week 12 - April 28, 2014 - 3 Months Tomorrow!

Hello everyone!! 
Guess what? Tomorrow is my 3 month mark! Time is flying by! Anyways, this week was great :) Yesterday we brought the Suarez family to church. They have been investigating for quite some time now, but each family member has a different belief, so we haven't been too successful with them. Anyways, during the sacrament, one of their daughters started choking on the water. It was kind of bad...but she ended up being just fine :) Later in Relief Society, Teresa, the mother, referred to us as "Mormons" instead of "Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints"...Well, let's just say some of the members did not like this, and we had a small argument in church. Haha oh dear. Hopefully the Suarez's allow us to keep teaching them :)
This week we worked like crazy to find people to teach. We literally talked to everyone we could see, and 90% are only here Monday through Saturday for work! It is so frustrating. The ward members try to give us references, but this week we did not have too much success with them. We have to think of a new way to find people though! Right now the majority of our lessons are with inactives, and investigators who are not progressing :(
Our house is infested with worms! They are tiny, white, and turn into moths! When we come home at night, our ceiling is COVERED in worms and moths. This morning we decided to have a major duty cleaning session. We started cleaning one cupboard, and found out that it was full of cockroaches! AH! It was the grossest thing ever. However, I think that we killed them all! Plus we cleaned the house really good, so now I just have to keep telling myself that everything is fine :)
We have a new Zone now, and our new leader is awesome! He is almost done with his mission, so he has a lot of experience. He gave us tons of advice, and I think it will help us a lot!
Happy moment! Yesterday I realized I was not translating words in my head...I was actually understanding the Spanish! I do not know when that happened, it is all so gradual, but the gift of tongues is definitely real!! :)
Anyways! As always, I have NO time! So have a great week!
Love, Hermana Roestenburg
