And on the baptism subject, I would also just like to mention that 5 people I found and taught were baptized the next two weeks after I left Villa Venezuela. It was super hard not to be there to see them baptized, but I'm still counting them as my converts. ;) I sent pictures of me with them on my last week in Villa Venezuela, and I sent pictures from their baptisms. I don't know if they made it to the blog, but if you'd like to match them up and put them on, Mom, that would be great. :) (Mother's note: the baptism pics are on previous blogs, here and here)
It's also been raining here for the past week, which has been a joy to work in. But rain is always preferable over the heat! haha
I had a dream last night that was interesting I'd like to share... In the dream I had to go home for a week to fill out some papers or something, and the whole time I was home I was like, "Just get me back on my mission! I miss Nicaragua!" After waking up I realized how much I really love it here. You couldn't pull me away for the world! There really is no way that God is not behind all this. Despite all the odds, I am the happiest I've been in my life.
Sidenote--in the dream I accidentally told an English-speaker, "Gracias!" and they were like, "Why is this white girl talking to me in Spanish?" and I realized I was not in Nicaragua anymore... haha So I tried to tell them about how I had just been serving a mission and introduce them to the church but I was having a really hard time doing it without using Spanish words. I'm already forgetting English, even in my dreams!! #TheStruggleIsReal
Well, I'm out of time but I love and pray for you all!
