Gotta love the small Miracles! (Photos)

Hey Fam! So this week went pretty sweet, we had some pretty cool experiences, One day it was raining super super hard and we had to pass by this ladies house, we knew we most likely werent going to be let in because no hay un hombre, and we saw no clear skies in the distance, as we turned the corner the pooring rain completely stopped it was crazy, and the sun came out, as we knocked the door we were able to talk and teach her for a good 20 min at the door, we talked a lot about gods plan and she began to tear up ove the subject. As we left there was no doubt in my mind God helped us out with that small miracle.
This week went super good we found a lot of people and got a lot of less actives to come back to church thanks to assignments. I know without a doubt that God places people in our way in the perfect timing, there is a sister in the ward that is inactive that we passed by at her mini market (market connected to her house) we talked for awhile and then her daughter walked in with her daughter she has like 29 years old. And we began to talk to her (daughter of the lady) as well, we were able to pass the reference over to the hermana misioneras to pass by, the daughter assisted, then later that day I felt impressed to pass by her mom that has the mini market, I told her her daughter assisted then she got all happy and said I need to assist and actually can you give my house a blessing one day and said she would be willing to close down her shop (which is pretty rare to do here), So we are going to do that this week and this sunday the mom assisted!,  ha I know that story probably sounded super complicated but basically its just so cool how God never forgets about people that arent assisting and always wants them to come back, its never to late for anyone and I am so greatful we have to chance on the mission to help be part of this reactivations.
We also started walking around with the Book of Mormon in hand and have made a goal to talk to everyone, EVERYONE haha, We have really wanted to show the lord our faith and the results have been super sweet, we are constantly teaching people a cool story from the book of mormon in the street or door, and really just trying to get to know people, I think its super cool to see my comp just starting not having a fear to talk to anyone. ha we have sure had some interesting contacts one we had was with this business man from peru, as missionaries you always are looking for whatever thing to start a conersation haha I really enjoy talking to people and we started talking about his leather shoes, next thing you know that led us to help understand he is studying engineering and is getting his masters in engineering, also told us he will be going to europe to study, I told him we would love to stop by his house because our message would spark his interest, he told us that we could pass by and have a beer and talk of politics but I said religion and juice would be even better and he agreed, ha he gave us his number and we are passing by this next week. But its always fun to show ANY type of person how our message is for EVERYONE.
Also I am really loving every day, one thing intersting I did was a fast as a companionship and personally, personaly I fasted to have more patience and love, and I loved the response I got, I felt as though everyhthing that next 3 days was a lot harder asking for a lot more love and patience from everyone, also was pretty sick and yeah basically a lot of patience tested. But I was so greatful for that and think it was probably one of the best fasts ive had because it helped me grow. also we fasted to find people and we were so blessed as we searched we were able to teach and find a fair share of people.
One cool lesson we had we with a family that there daughter really really likes english, she actually speaks very well, We had an idea to give her a liahona with a testimony of someone that recieved an answer to the book of mormon and explained how we can recieve an answer, we gave two copies of the magazine, one in english and one is spanish, she and her brother were super excited to read it, its super cool how many ways you can teach applying the message to their lives. One thing I love on the mission our purpose is simple and our doctrine pure, and the lord gives us a million ways to share the same message to fit the need of EVERY one of his children. Super cool.
