Querido Familia y Amigos,

A miracle we had this week was that yesterday after church I was just feeling super tired and super stressed and kind of down. At church I still struggle with talking to the members in Spanish, also the ward choir is singing at a baptism of an 8 year old this Saturday and so they needed me to play piano and it´s a hymn that is hard for me to play. So like we were practicing singing it with me playing it and I kept messing up and I couldn´t get it right. I was just really frustrated and frustrated that I still have a hard time speaking Spanish with the members. So I came home for Mediodia and just took a nap and relaxed. And when  we went out again we only had one set visit and then we were just going to do passbys after. And that just makes the day go by super slow and it can be frustrating as well. But I prayed and asked God to help me feel excitement in the work and that I would feel happy. And so the one visit we had set up was someone that the other Hermanas had contacted, so we didn´t know her. So we stop by the house and this guy says she´s sleeping right now. And then Hermana Lamoreaux said well can we come back in 30 minutes, and he was like, well hold on, and then he was like, okay she´s actually up now.  So we come up and it´s this CUTE family from the Dominican Republic. Johanna and her cuñado Lewware. And then someone else came in for a sec, just to tell us that his Mom was a member. But then he left. So we teach Johanna and Lewware about the Book Of Mormon and then Lesson 1 about the Restoration. And Johanna was like, So what do I need to do to be baptized!!?? Now they both have fechas and they both said they would read in the Book Of Mormon before our next visit. They´re super cute and invited us over to eat with them, that they´ll make us Dominican food. 

This visit was just what I needed to revitalize my spirits that day!! I know that God has a work for us to do. It´s a marvelous work and a wonder, but yes it is a WORK. 

Sorry no pictures this week! My companion dropped my camera. A member gave me one to use (so nice of them) but the memory card I already have doesn´t fit in it. So yeah, kind of a problem.

I love you guys lots! Have a good week!

Con amor,
Hermana Birch
