|Last week with Hermana Barrios :(|
This week has been pretty excellent! It was Independence Day yesterday, so all week there has been parades in central. Every school participates and it's pretty crazy. We got a lot of contacting done :) On Saturday was National kid day and everyone makes piñatas! We worked pretty hard this week trying to get everything prepared for campios Wednesday. We found a 12 year old girl named Vanessa and she is the sweetest! She gives me hope that there is goodness in the world!
This week I have been trying to focus on loving the people here. They always seem to amaze me. Some of their trials are incredible, but they always are so strong. One the Abuelas, Margarita we teach is 82 and she's disabled. She struggles in feeding her family and raised her grandaughter at age 60+ and now is raising her great grandaughter. She made us tortillas yesterday and it may seem small, but I know it was a great sacrifice for her. I almost started crying when she handed them to us. She is a great example to me. I am starting to understand and feel a small portion of how much love Heavenly Father has for His children.
