Bolivia, Jardin—Week 6

Mi querido Familia,

I hope you are all doing great and loving life in beautiful Summery Utah. It’s so strange that it is June and freezing cold. I’m never going to get used to the opposite climates.

This week went by so fast—and also the month of May. I’m just trying to make the most of the time I have here because I know that in the blink of an eye, it’s all going to be over.
We've been continuing to teach “F” who is progressing very well. She lives in the other mission  boundaries, so we will not be able to go to her baptism, but she is meeting with the other missionaries over there, so the baptism plans are going well.
We had an activity on Monday to surprise Hermana Zambrano for Mother’s day (it’s on a different day here in Bolivia) and it was really great—lots of tears (of course), but really fun. To top it all off, Pres. bought us KFC! yahoo!
We had our missionary talent show on Friday and it was fantastic. Dropbox won’t let me send the videos, but they are super great. There is a show here called “Yo me llamo” with people that act like famous singers and sing like them in this show, so we did a mimic and we all performed something in “yo soy!” It was great fun.
We are still working with Hermana “R” and she is progressing very well. She and her daughter came to all of church yesterday which was a huge step for them.
I have a testimony of this work. It’s hard—emotionally, physically, and mentally, but I know that I always have the Lord on my side. I love this work. I love the Gospel and I have a testimony of the truth of this work. We are in the Lord’s true church and he has called me to preach the good word to the people here in Bolivia.
Like it says in Isaiah 61:1-2:
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives . . . to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, to comfort all that mourn."
I love you all so much!
xoxo Hermana Nelson
