Hey everyone,. 

It was a rough week last week that's all I have to say. But we are working hard. I guess the Christmas season is a little tough. Yesterday we had an awesome miracle that made all the trials and suffering worth it! 

Last week we were rejected and with not having investigators progressing that makes it the worst. Also we always have splits with missionaries and that makes things so tiring. Great experience but so tiring. One of these times we were heading back to our house after being on splits and I had my splits bag. My companion contacted the bus and I put my splits bag with my clothes, hygiene stuff and my english quad on the top rack of the bus. I contacted everyone and then we got off the bus. Then about 3 minutes later I realized something... my bag was still on the bus and I wasn't there. We called other missionaries to see if they could check at the bus stop in Villa Canales but it was nowhere to be found. That made the week so much harder for me. I wasn't too sad about the clothes. mostly just for my scriptures but it's ok I have a Book of Mormon and the secretaries are bringing me a bible on Thursday so that's all good. 

One thing I have learned is that with a lot of trials like this, something good is going to happen. Yesterday we left to visit people and we met up with a lady I had contacted 2 days before and she told us to stop by. This Hermana Susi's mom let us in and there was the whole family, then we turned to sit down and saw a picture of the temple. That surprised us a lot so we got talking about it. Turns out that half of the family members are members and the other half no, and the ones that are members are inactive. We were able to have a super spiritual lesson with them and Hermana Susi siad she would pray and try her hardest to go to church this week. The missionaries taught her about a year ago and she wasn't very interested but now she is so ready to receive the gospel it's awesome! 

Well I hope that you all have a great week and enjoy the holiday season! Love you all, 
Elder Daybell
