Wk 48: Abigail's baptism!

Area: San Carlos
Companion: Sister Lara
Abigail our convert and Luana a child of record :) so cute!!

This week has been a little bit better. I honestly haven't been turned down so much! Neither has Sister Lara. But it's truly a blessing in disguise because now we have time to go look and search for new people. We found a less active on friday and invited him to church. He said he was active, but turns out he isn't and he came to church on sunday!! It was amazing! Like all he needed was to be invited back. It was amazing!!

We also found some investigators that wanted to come to church yesterday but they said that one of them wasn't there so next sunday they will come :) They were right by the house of the Less Active. We also had someone walk up and ask us if he could hear about Jesus Christ because he loves Jesus Christ and he said see and showed us a big tattoo that he has on his arm of Jesus Christ's face with thorns. We were like yeah brother haha and we prayed and gave him a pamphlet, said we are going to come back wednesday. It was incredible. A place Sister Lara hasn't seen much but just down this one path, we met these 3 people miracles! :)

We got some more rejections but it truly did open these wonderful opportunities to be able to go search for the elect people who are ready to hear the gospel. I am so excited to continue!! :)

I am so stoked and cried a little watching Jade's video of him opening his call. Thank you for that! I am so happy to be able to be serving and he's so lucky to be able to go serve!! He will be truly an amazing missionary!! :) I am so excited to see what miracles he performs :)

 I love this work and it's truly a work of God!! :) I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet and he truly saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love this gospel and am so grateful for it! So happy our family has been so close to the gospel also. We are truly so blessed to know the truth!! :) I love you all and am so grateful for you!! :)

Love, Sister Smoot

                                  outside :) the street

and the street we always call for a tricycle on :)
  down the street from our house :)


we have a shower head but we just use the bucket here.
and yes that is our toilet :) haha funny huh! i love it :)

(questions about the cockroaches and rats in the house!)

yes dad we spray them and they just take a bit to die and usually when we see them they are dying or dead then we just sweep them out and i don't know about the rats there aren't the huge ones for what we've seen though just the normal sized ones. It doesn't bother me too much unless they surprise me or are running fastly around but it's only happened a couple times and i just spray them :) haha
inside our house

Q: Are you staying away from the rats & the cock roaches?
A: yes haha you think i'd get close to them?! haha :) the other day i was studying and there was a crockroach on the wall right next to me! I just jumped and screamed a little but it's ok :) then i moved my chair haha but it's dead now because of permitheran and the only time we see the rats is when they come and get into our garbage and we can hear them upstairs running

Q: Are you enjoying being close to the beach?
A: it's not really a beach just seaside but it's nice yeah :)

Q: Can you see the beach from your apartment/house?
A: i am going to try :) i took some just for you!

Q: Can you send us pictures of your new place both inside and out and the view of the beach?
A: i will for sure :) the sea pictures i took are blurry it didn't really work but i'll try to send one or two
the beach :) 
i am not sure if but hope they work ok :) 
these are the best ones 's really beautiful!!
