Kayla will be a Trainer

  After 2 1/2 months in the mission field Kayla will be training a 
new sister missionary :)

Hello family!!!
      I didn't know what to put as the title for this week lolo because its basically been like that.... AHHHHHH
       So it started on Wednesday, we were teaching Fabiola who will soon complete her one year as member and is a single mom with two young kids. The father of her children recently told her that he will not be sending her money anymore and she doesn't know how she is going to pay for everything. She told us that she wasn't going to pay her tithing this month so we totally changed our lesson to talk about tithing. Well we did... we talked and talked, but it wasn't until i heard dad's words from a past email that talked about the power of the scriptures that i opened up to 2 Nephi 22:2, a scripture i have come to love on the mission. As she read, she broke down crying and said she would pay her tithing, and trust in God. I am sure of the power of the scriptures and that the contain the words of God. We can talk, but when we use scriptures, they can change lives. Later that night we met Flor knocking doors who basically did everything for us as she asked us to teach her and then gave us a referral even before we asked!!! We are truly finding those prepared for the gospel.
      Thursday we had interviews with President Rasmussen and something that he told me was that my next transfer would teach me how to trust in the Lord more. Well when i heard this i thought for sure I was going to get a hard companion or be moved to a difficult area.... Well thats what i heard until we got the news on Saturday. BUT we are still on Thursday! So we finished interviews and then went to teach Hermano Freddy and Hno Marcos Espinoza, our ward missionary leader, accompanied us. It was a great lesson and afterwards, Freddy's brother, Jesus who is 35 years old sat down and thanked us for teaching his brother and giving him hope again We then told him we would return Saturday to teach Freddy and Jesus. 
       So we arrive to Saturday. Saturday's are always difficult because I'm Super tired.. and yet somehow after Sunday and Monday i magically have energy for the week again lol. Well we had a District Meeting in the morning and then after lunch we taught Hermano Freddy. Hermano Marcos accompanied us again and the lesson was really good!! Afterwards Freddy wanted to sing to us and he pulled out his guitar and sang this super pretty Spanish song that i had a hard time understanding. But it was great! lol. As we listened to Freddy, we saw that Jesus was there. So we talked and then had the lesson with him. WOW!! We taught the first lesson and he was soooo receptive and understood so much! He told us very firmly that he would pray THAT night because he really wanted to know if this church was the Lords. He told us of some of the experiences he had had with other churches and that he didn't feel fright. We set a baptism date for October 17 and he was so firm in his yes!!! I left smiling from one end of the world to the other. Hermano Freddy and Jesus have been well prepared by God to receive the joy and happiness that He has in store for them. Afterwards we decided to meet as a district to receive the changes. We sat waiting and i was sooooo anxious to find out. Well Hermana Echegaray is going to Talara, basically full desert lolol. Hermana Vasquez is leaving for Tacala, Hna. Garcia will be with Hna. Ruiz....... and I WILL BE A TRAINER!!!!!! AHHHHHH!! I am still in shock :o lol. Hna. Echegaray left this morning for Talara and right now i am with Hna. Apeña until we meet our new companions on Wednesday! Uh its kinda killing me that i have to wait three days after everyone else but i laughed because i had to wait three weeks to find out where i was going for the mission! lol Three is my lucky number. So i guess i will be learning to trust more in God because i still don't know ALOT of Spanish but my companion wont know anything lolol. 
      Finally we had Sunday and guess what!! Hermano Freddy and Jesus attended church and stayed for the whole three hours!!! They were a little late so they missed the sacrament but next week for sure they will be on time!! You guys have no idea how hard it is to get people to attend church here so basically I'm on Cloud 9 right now. This week has been soooo crazy and it will only get crazier ahahaha but our investigators are progressing and i cant wait until the day they are dressed in white. God truly does care for his children ad loves each and every one of us. 
       I miss each and every one of you ad I'm glad to hear all is well.

(these are in answer to Kayla's families questions and news)

Thanks for sending the package mom :)
My favorite missionary scripture is ALMA 36:24
     Yea, and from that time even until now, I have labored without ceasing, that I might bring souls unto repentance; that I might bring them to taste of the exceeding joy of which I did taste; that they might also be born of God, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
       I feel like this is why i came on a mission :)
(Kanoah got his drivers permit) WHAT KANOAH CANT BE THAT OLD!!!

I'm glad you guys are feeling love from the ward, honestly its what we need more of here in Piura.
