Semana 4 en CCM

We had such a crazy week here. Every minute is packed with classes and devotionals. These last two weeks have gone by so quickly. This week we got the opportunity to teach some inactive families that were brought to the CCM. We taught a single mom and her adorable daughter. I remember starting asking her questions and asking her when was the last time she went to church, it had been 4 years. We taught her about prayer and testified it could strengthen her testimony again if she read the Book of Mormon and asked God if it was true. The spirit was so strong in that room. I remember looking at the daughter and thinking how badly she needed the gospel in her life.

Sunday was amazing like always. We have great devotionals and testimony meetings. At the end of the night we went up to President Cox's apartment again for another devotional and cookies made by his wife which is awesome haha. I just love them. Today is P-day and this time we got to go on a field trip. After the temple we took a bus to the capital of Guatemala just in front of Presidents Palace to a plaza to place some Books of Mormon! Oh we had the best time. It was so beautiful. We visited a market before and I bought a sweet hackysack for 5Q haha. We visited a huge cathedral right next to the plaza which was really cool as well. In the plaza we only had 30 mins but my companion Elder Aldous and I talked to three contacts and gave them Books of Mormon and got their address for missionaries to stop by. Two of them were students and another from the town. It was amazing that I could understand and teach complete strangers. I mean granted they have us eating, drinking and sleeping Spanish here, it felt very rewarding.

On the way home on the bus we got everyone to sing hymns (cough cough totally started that haha) which was so fun! Hermana Cox said out of all the missionaries we were the first ever to do that. Now we're back in the CCM all the old nations are gone out into the field and new ones will be trickling in today and tomorrow. Its crazy to think this will be the group we leave to the field with in two weeks. I love you all and love hearing from you. Keep the faith.
