Another week? Whenever I heard some one say that in the mission the days feel like weeks and weeks feel like days I honestly thought that they were on drugs. How can a week feel like a day? How can a day feel like a week? Well I know exactly what they were talking about. I feel so blessed to be on a mission it is really one of the best experiences of my life.
So this week was really really good. We taught a lot of lessons and a lot of people are really progressing in our area. First off Maritza, she is awesome and really wants to be baptized. There is one small problem. She still lives at home with both of her parents and they want her and her older brother Jonathon to be baptized on the same day. We have a cite......appointment (I forget that word for a minute) this week where we will talk to their parents and explain to them the importance of baptism. Jonathan is not progressing at all and that makes our job really really hard. We asked if she would be baptized on the 27th of this month and she said yes, we just have to work with her parents now. Hermana Virginia is doing really well too. She has 4 kids. Luis, Jose, Micheal, and Jasmine. They are so cute. We are asking them this week if they will prepare to be baptized on the 27 also. We have really, really, really, really, big plans for the 27th. We hope all goes well and that our plans will all work out. It will bless lots of lives if they do.
Last week we went out for pizza and let me tell you how insanely awesome that was. I have to tell you something - - that was one of the most celestial experiences of my life here in Peru. Really though, the rice and chicken is not so good for my insides and I have been, well in the john like all of the time here. I am healthy I just well......don`t know really. But really I am fine no need to worry. It is normal here, at least for the white people. And it is really only during the night that I have any problems. When we are out and about during the day I am just fine. I guess Heavenly Father makes sure I can get the work done that he wants me to do during the day and leaves me to deal with myself during the night. When we went out for pizza everything got better. How weird is that? But I am grateful!!
Anyways it is hard to write about each day because they are all the same. Walk around a lot. Have a lot of APPOINTMENTS fall through and walk around some more. Teach a little, show a little video to a family and try to get EVERYBODY to come to church. We literally invite everyone we see to come to church. No one ever comes but our attendance is going up. Our goal it to consistently have like 60ish people come. That is huge for us really we have had 54 one time and that was like......awww - - I don`t even know how to explain it!!!
My testimony is the strongest it has ever been and I love Peru. The people here are so awesome, when they are sober, and I just awww. Don`t really have word for it.
