Thank you Grant for the letter I got last week! I loved it. OKAY! I saw so many people this week too: Rogelio (he was someone I found on my first exchange with the Venice sisters and he was my answer to my prayer! He ended up being baptized 3-4 weeks later and he thanked me for finding him that one day on the street!), Sister Davis (my guapa!! she came back to do a fireside), Sister Thompson (my "grandma" on the mission! and she's getting married in a few weeks, crazy!) and Sister Lindo (well, Jessica Lindo, she was my mini missionary when I was companions with Sister Set, I love her!). I also got little notes from the Hogan family, the Bishop family, and the Bean family! I don't find it a coincidence that I only saw people from the mission but didn't see people from home :) thank you for my little notes though, I loved them!
Yesterday I had to give a tour by myself because there were so many people wanting schedule tours! I was so nervous because I still feel a bit inadequate here in the VC because there is new media and what not and I just haven't had the time to check everything out. Her family has been baptized but she's the only one that still haven't made the decision to be baptized. She's 17 and super cool. I was able to relate to her a lot because I was 17 ish when I got baptized. After the tour was done, I asked the other sister (who was from another mission) what I could of done to improve and she really didn't have anything for me. I then felt good because I assumed that meant that I did a pretty good job! Later I had a few minutes to evaluate the tour by myself and to think of something that I could of done better to improve. Things started to come to my mind but then I was reminded of myself at the beginning of my mission. Then, I loved to give tours by myself because I thought it was less awkward and I felt like I did a better job. Now, I don't like taking tours on my own because I have learned, throughout my mission, the power that comes when the truth is proclaimed two by two; when you have a companion with you testifying of the same things. Back then, I didn't understand that and I'm grateful that I've finally learned that now.
