week 10:

3 MONTHS!!! 3 MONTHS!!! 3 MONTHS!!! 
Hello!!!! Hermana Gardner here!!! 

We had a good week here in San Juan with our new companionship de tres!! Its fun to have Hermana Bond with us, she is the biggest sweettheart and I REALLY love her and am learning so much from her too. 

Update on investigators:

The saddest thing happened on Thursday when the husband of Flor (one of our BEST investigators who I LOVE) called us and ranted about how we must stop ¨bothering¨ her. He asked us to not stop by anymore and to stop teaching her. ughhh it was so sad. Flor is so sweet and so genuine in her desire to learn about the gospel. She really wanted to get baptized. But her husband is so against it, so we´ll have to leave her for a time. Im praying that something will change later down the road because I know we found her for a reason. 

-This week we found a girl named Yanet! and also a girl named Natalie and the cutest old man named Segundo. :) A lady we found named Vanessa has been less active almost her whole life but we found her and have been teaching her and she came to church on sunday! It was a miracle. Our investigators Luis and Piero are progressing and its so great to see people that really want to come unto Christ and change their lives. The best thing was probably our lesson with Piero because he has changed so much. He has been taking the missionary lessons for over a year and sometimes he is interested and sometimes his progress is slower. But I think he is really coming close! He was so happy in our lesson yesterday, it was great to see. His baptismal date is April 26 so we´ll see how it goes :) #prayforpiero

Typical Tessa:

Saturday we were strolling through the park thats in our area, and there was a cute old man feeding a little flock of pigeons. (the pigeons are EVERYWHERE. my companion also really likes to feed them for some reason haha.) So I stopped to talk to this man. What I intended to say was ¨Good Afternoon! We like feeding the pigeons too!¨ but instead it came out like ¨We also eat the pigeons!¨ 
My companions thought it was pretty hilarious :) hahahahaha oh dear, this Spanish of mine. Its progressing slowly but surely though!!!
