Vaya! Sign me up for this tough scramble thing...if you think I can do it. I mean A month isn't very long to train. Seriously, I am in shock that this is even an option right now, that I will be home in time to sign me up for some race.
When did we get a trio of Sisters. I imagine the whole world are in trios. I will probably never be in a pair again. Also, exciting to hear that Brother Metro came and that it was a good time. I miss the Metros.
This week was a good one. We did not have changes but we did at the same time. On Monday they called and told us that we would all be staying. Wednesday night at 10:28 our Zone Leader called and told us we have to be in San Salvador at 9am for a special training meeting. We have been selected to complete a special assignment as "Missionary Rescue Leaders" (it sounds better in Spanish...I think President Made it up). Our primary responsibility is no longer only investigators but less-active members. We are assigned to visit the less-active families in the ward and help them to be more converted to the gospel. President said that he feels as though it is something we don't do enough as missionaries and he is confident that by working with less-actives we will have more success establishing the church here in El Salvador. And really this is what Gavidia needs. During the training meeting I was overwhelmed with gratitude for my Heavenly Father and for the missionaries that did so much for us. I am so excited to work in this assignment and know that it will be a blessing in my life and the lives of many others.
We also had the wedding this weekend. Talk about stressful! Seriously getting people married down here is incredibly complicated! But it was a beautiful night and they were happy. I tried to play photographer haha.
