Another crazy experience this week. We got a call from a random lady speaking spanish and she said that her brother's wife had a premature baby and just found out that he is really sick and needs surgery (the baby) and she was wondering if there was a place we could find for the parents and her to stay while the baby gets better because they live about 2 hours away. So we were able to find a place for them (thanks to the amazing sister Foster and Barrientos) and we went to the hospital to meet them and the Elders gave this baby a blessing. We were able to see the baby and it was the tiniest thing I have ever seen. His name is Samuel and he was born at 25 weeks and weighed 2 pounds. This family is awesome and the brother and his sister are members (the brother is less active) but his wife (the mom of the baby) is not a member. We were able to help them out and pray with them and we invited them to churchand they came! They are such a cool family and I really am hoping and praying that their little baby is going to be alright.
So Sister Howton is going to be leaving me:( I am staying though so that is good. I am excited to have new experiences with a new companion and to be getting the two new sign language sisters in our apartment will be fun as well. I am super duper sad that Sis. Howton is leaving though because she is SO cool! But I know that she needs to be somewhere else and this is what is best. Well. That's about all the time I have but I wish I could just tell you about all the other crazy experiences this week. The gospel is true and missionary work is awesome!
Love you all!
