Defending the Book!

Well, this week was one of those weeks that it's a little hard to be a missionary. It was so hot. IT IS SO HOT HERE. I literally drink like a liter of water in 5 minutes and I don't even have to pee like ever (said in the most lady like way possible). Yesterday we were so thirsty. We asked for water at a random house (its actually quite common to do that here, even among normal people) and they gave us the tiniest cups and so we walked to another house to ask for more! We met a very nice family of four that have family members that are members of the church! We have an appointment with them tomorrow! 

We went to go visit one of our investigators. Her brother is a member and is actually just about to get home from his mission in 3 weeks. We love her and her family so much. We went to visit them and they were gardening so they gave us shorts to change into and we helped them! I felt so happy helping them! Service for someone you love doesn't even feel like work!!!! They bought a pizza and we ate together afterward! Adriana is ready for baptism she's just waiting for her brother to get home so that he can baptize her! I love her! She's really sweet and awesomely awkward and so cute and sooooo tiny!!!! I feel like we were friends before coming to this Earth. 

We had a really, really intense lesson with the mom of the girl that was baptized last week. She's read a lot of anti mormon things on the internet. And she refuses to read the Book of Mormon. It was a really awful lesson actually, we left feeling really depressed. She doesn't want her daughter to go to church because she doesn't want her to go on a mission. She thinks that we're brain washed into going. She kept saying "I don't want my daughter to be like you, defending that book." That cut us both really deep. But I'm glad she recognized that we both have testimonies of the Book of Mormon! It's another testimony of Jesus Christ! It was written for us! Anyone that reads it will know that it's not just another book, but that it's the word of God! 

I'm so grateful for the time that I've had here in the mission and I'm ready to kill these next 3 months :) 

Love you all!!!!!
