Well the first week in castillos is over.... what a week! this week has really been just a blur! it was fairly normal the first day, we arrived on wednesday nad we just went out to work and visit some people and it was all good, then thursday was the same, just a good normal day of missionary work, and then friday the relief society president called asking to be released so i had to call the district president to actually know how to release some one! then we had to do some office work in the church, and my comp kinda showed me how everything works. Then saturday we had Branch council... (i don`t know if its called branch council in english... but its like ward Council.) and we were the only 2 who showed up.... so we planned our end of year/christmas activity for the 17 and i hope it turns out good! Then came sunday... Well we had 8 people in church, we taught relief society, the my comp directed church while i lead music (and basically sang a solo) then we blessed and passed the sacrement, and then we both gave talks for 20 minutes and basically did everything!! it was quite fun :)
But from my few days here, i have learned that the church truly is the same everywhere. This was one of the most spiritual sacrament meetings i have had in a while, and honestly it was all due to the reverence and preperation of the few members that were there. It was really comforting to know that God really is wherever there are 2 or 3 (or 8) gathered in his name. We are excited to see the miracles and the experiences that we are going to have here, and we are goign to see how it goes!!!
Love you all so much and thanks for all the love and support.
