This week was INSANE!!!!
When I have a change or receive a new companion, the week always goes super slow, but look! We did it!
Last Monday was such a special day! The branch members threw a family home evening for Elder Hiatt and I. It was held at the Moody's home. We had a campfire and roasted Hot Dogs and Marshmallows! So fun! I had the hardest time saying goodbye to the people in Santa Elena! I love them! Luckily we will return soon:)
I am now serving in Corozal with Sister Lindstrom from California. She is awesome! We are both new to the area and we were left with NOTHING! It has been a lot of fun to talk to so many people and to get to know the town. Our area is right on the sea side. We have the ocean as our border, it is fun!! Beautiful, but HOT HOT HOT, but beautiful! HOT season has not even started and I am dying! It is that Savage blood. :)
The Lord is preparing people for us here in Corozal! We met a man named Lionel and he came with us to district conference in Belize City yesterday (a 2 hour bus ride each way!) He said he really enjoyed it and he has cleared up his schedule so we can meet with him this week to teach him more! We also met a woman named Lydia. She is the cutest lady! She does not know how to read, but asked us to teach her. These are 2 people that we were led right to! Lionel is a tour guide for the cruise ships and as we sailed past him on our bikes, he yelled "I met some of you Mormons today!" We turned around and talked and he has been very positive. We found Lydia while we were tracting. It has been incredible to see little miracles each day in the people we find and teach! It shows that this is the Lord's work and we will accomplish it according to his will!
We have a less active named Elmo. He told us this week (the very first time we met him) "If anybody da do you something...you call me!" That is creole, meaning if anyone gives us trouble he has got our backs! People are so great!
We are teaching a 13 year old named Elvira and every time we ask her a question her answer is "GAWD" She says it in this loud voice and a little pep in it! The people in Belize love and Believe in God and Jesus Christ!
We have had some crazy moments this week with the lovely people here! The people are not afraid to say what they feel or do what they want! We had a man who was drinking while driving pull over and start talking to us about Spencer W. Kimball and Gordon B. Hinkley! That is just scratching the surface!
A sweet lady named Martha gave us papusas this week and she put the Habenero salsa on it. It was the HOTTEST thing I have ever eaten in my life! It was night and my water was gone! I was red and my face was hotter than hot! That is a perk to being a missionary...eating everything!!
Yesterday we had District Conference. One of the counselors spoke about how adults need to teach children and correct them in their paths. President Hintze then said "It takes a village to raise a child" I just want to thank each of you reading this for the way you have corrected my path or been part of the village that has raised me!
We got to watch Meet the Mormons this week and it was so good! I loved it! It was just a great explanation and way to show a little about the people in the church!
So in Honor of Meet the Mormons, I'm Sister Savage! I'm a missionary! I'm Serving in Corozal and I'm a Mormon!
I love you all and am so thankful for your support!
Bringing 'em heaven as I glory in his name!
Lots of love,
Happy Valentines day!
