Hermana Daly~Nov 2, 2009....the pressure is up

Hola familia!!!How are the preparations for Christmas?! I´ve started to see some stores start selling Christmas stuff…and so tempted to buy it all…but a missionary doesn´t have the time, money, or need (not much) for Christmas decorations. I´ll just have to wait until next year to buy all the cute snowmen with mom…and of course all the chocolate :) We bought some chocolate for Halloween, but truly it´s just brown-colored plastic and the few gringo candies like a small bag of M&Ms is like five dollars…ridiculous, but oh well haha.We are cracking down on putting baptismal dates for everyone. We need two by the end of this week, and have one. If we don´t have it, President Urra will make changes and everything betweens sectors so that everyone has four baptisms by the end of the year!!! So lots of pressure and work…but we are trying to increase our faith!! A family of four from our ward showed up at the other ward in the morning, and our bishop happened to be in the chapel to see them and told us in the afternoon. The mom was a former investigador that has no time because everyone works too much here. But she showed up with her two kids and sister because she has the desperate need to save her son from being sucked into the “world” that many teens are following today in Iquique…lets just say they don´t follow the commandments. So we were able to have a lesson the last hour of the night with the family – menos the mom because she was working – and it went great. So that was our little miracle!!We are really trying to humble ourselves and plead for the Lord´s spirit to guide us and guide those who are prepared to us. My new companion, Hermana Chavez is great! She is from Honduras and has almost 8 months in the mission. She is way funny…so we are going to get along great. Lots of prayers!!! Have a great week!!! -Hermana Daly
