My computer didn't work for pictures so today will include pictures from last week.
So lucky to be with Hawkins again:
On P-day last week: me, Hermana Hawkins, Duran, and Yancey
This Sunday, Hawkins and I will be singing with 2 elders accompanied by Hermana Duran (from Honduras) on the flute at the Despedida in San Fernando.
In the train station:
This week we searched high and low for investigators, for people who truly have a hunger and thirst for the restored gospel of Christ. Throughout the process we were humbled, and were able to grow closer to Christ. Up until Sunday night we had yet to find one new person. We had made several plans Sunday morning to bring various people to church, but no one was there when we passed by. We had also sent out two different members to help us search out two investigators, but they had the same luck as us. All I knew was that we had done our part. As we were out on Sunday night, with Franklin accompanying us, he told us he had a friend that we could visit. He usually has people we can visit, but often they are old investigators from missionaries before or less active members. Regardless, we always try to visit them.
This time, as we met the friend of Franklin I could quickly feel that he was an escogido, or someone ready and prepared to hear of the gospel. We invited him to church, gave him the pamphlet over the Restoration, and then I invited him to be baptized. He accepted for the date of the 17 of May. What a powerful blessing and sign of God's presence in the work after a week of searching! Often times, after all we can do, God seems to bless us, putting something or someone in our path that we never saw coming. It is such a testimony builder for me.

One of the biggest miracles of the week is watching my two hijas progress so quickly! They work together very well. Hermana Yancey has a great knowledge of this area, and Hermana Riquelme is very straight-forward and bold. The three of us truly make a powerful team.

What a blessing to work with the best the mission has to offer!
I love all of you:) Take care, and remember, the work isn't ours.
Hopefully, the pictures of my "hija" come through next week!
