Tuesday night we got a call from the assistants saying that an hermana was returning home for health problems and that her companion would be coming to stay with us for a few days. La hermana Melendez from Costa Rica came and stayed with us and she is awesome! She was teaching us some expressions in Costa Rica like ¨pura vida¨ which means awesome or cool. It was fun being a threesome!
We are seeing miracles here in Santa Cruz. This Saturday there will be two baptisms in the ward, the hermana Irma that we´ve been teaching, and another hermano who´s case has been a little different... his name is Augusto. He´s an older guy, about 60. He came to church one day all on his own and the elders started teaching him cause he lives in their sector. But the elders have zero time in their sector, so asked us to take over for them. So we started teaching Augusto and he also had a baptismal date for this Saturday. The elders told us that Augusto ¨counts¨ in the records as a baptism in our sector, so now we have two with fecha for this Saturday! We are so excited! This has been a great week with some great lessons and we have seen the Lord´s hand here in our barrio.
Thank you so much for all your letters and support. I got a letter from Kyla this week which was awesome! I´m glad to hear you´re all doing well. I hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday as a family. Se que Jesucristo dio su vida por nosotros y que el resucito el tercer dia para librarnos de la muerte. I miss you and love you! Until next week.
Love, Hermana Anderson
P.S. We still haven´t had time to buy a new cord to send pictures, but next week for sure I will get one!
