On Tuesday I arrived in Gazcue, Santo Domingo and met up with my new companion, Hermana Burrell, from Utah. She is sugar sweet and this is her last transfer of the mission. We live with two other sisters, one of which is Hermana Frias, my very first companion and trainer!! It is so awesome to be in the same house with her again. She's so fun and it feels good to be with an old friend.
Gazcue is in Santo Domingo and is a pretty well off area. There are parts that remind me deeply of Europe and beautiful ruins scattered throughout it. Gazcue has a reputation for being a hard area. But I refuse to believe it. As Hermana Frias says, "There are no hard areas, only people with little faith." I believe that. We are going to see miracles!
Friday night the whole zone came to our area to visit old investigators from the Area Book and make some contacts. We all united as a zone to find people to teach, especially families, in these two areas that make up Gazcue. It was a good moment of unity for the zone.
On Saturday Yoselin got baptized, this adorable lady who the sisters were teaching before. She is a light to all around her.
Being in Gazcue has plenty of perks. I get to go running in the morning, we eat with members three times a week, there are lots of cool things to explore, and sometimes it feels like you're walking the streets of Italy or Spain. I'm excited to see what this area has in store!
I love you all!
Today we roamed Gazcue for P-day. There are some pretty cool ruins here. Sometimes I feel like I'm in Europe again when I walk the streets.
Yoselin is this adorable lady who got baptized on Saturday! I only got here last week but it's been awesome getting to know her.
Write me! I would love to hear from you! :)
