Well, I am so glad to be on internet writing you all again. Some weeks you just need some "alone" time. Well, you are not alone, but you can feel alone for your one hour.
The Lord really, really, knows how much you can take. He knows what you can take and what you can handle. After a few experiences from last week I just really needed a good, good, week. So Monday we had a really relaxing day. We didn't really leave the room and we just chilled.
Tuesday we had a day full of appointments. Most of them fell through but we just picked our heads up and kept walking. We got in contact with one of the references that we had gotten earlier this past week. He is soooo prepared. His name is Rafiel. He is seriously sooo prepared. We had one appointment with him and then passed him to the sisters because they are teaching his partner. The sisters that we share a sector with, are teaching him now. I will get to that story.
Anyways, I will first tell you about the sisters in the district. Their names are Sister Burgos and Sister Wight. I have been with Sister Burgos since my first sector, she was in Puno for 9 months and then we got changes, and now I am her district leader. She is a awesome missionary and finishes up this next change. I will be sad when she is not here. She helps our ward a lot. Sister Wight, wow, what can I say about her. She is from my group, we came into the mission at the same time. SHE IS CRAZY!! Not a bad crazy but she is crazy. I don´t get why a lot of Elders have problems with sisters. In all realty they are more valiant than us Elders. It is a choice for them, but as Elders, it is a commandment for us.
Wednesday, well Wednesday was about the same as Tuesday, haha. Had a lot of appointments the fell through. We taught a family where the dad is not a member and neither is his daughter who is 9 years old. I love that family. They live in a one room house for the 5 of them and they really are a huge example of all the attributes of Christ. Carla, the 9 year old, has a date for the 27th of this month to be baptized. During this same appointment we got the signature form her dad and she is going to be baptized.
Thursday we had our appointment with RAFIEL!!! He is so awesome. His friend gave him a Book of Mormon and one of the first things that he says is "I have been reading that book my friend gave me." Wow, at first I was in shock and had to remind myself to let the spirit teach. He looked down and looked back up and said "I know it is true." I almost started crying. That may have been on of the most spiritual experiences of my life.
Nothing more happened until Sunday. We had an appointment with a family that had heard the missionaries before and they were awesome. We hope to be able to keep working with them and helping them progress in the gospel.
That was about my week. I know that this is the church of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior.
Love Elder George
