CHOCOLATE AND ROCKS! EMAIL 6/2/2014

Monday, normal p day, played some soccer and man was i a mean goaly haha. Blocked a lot of goals and even scored some! Learning to become a true Latino!! haha. That was it haha.
Tuesday, I got to watch the testaments all the way through for the first time. That was cool, sorta to see how it would have been if we were actually in the Americas when Christ came. So cool. Then we had our district mtg. in campoy. It went well. My package didnt arrive but thats ok.  Then we werent able to talk to many people, we were also walking a little slow because our legs were a little sore from soccer. haha. Woops. We talked to hna. rosa a bit about the millennium and the 2nd coming. Really cool to think about that day, the second coming, when everything will fall in to order and we will be in a state of never ending happiness with no worries. uhhhhh. Why cant it come tomorrow? haha. Well we just have to keep preparing right? haha.
 Wednesday, we visited hna julia matos, a less active, divorced, with a little daughter who is 9. Anyway, we got her to go to church the last week but she sorta had a little bad experience. She wasnt paying attention and then some sisters laughed a little. So ya, she was hurt. Pretty bad, and i feel terrible for her. She finally got the desire to go back and when she does people laugh at her. ughhhh. Sometimes member’s dont think before they act. We will try to do the best that we can to help her feel comforted again and start going back to church but it will be even harder now. i hope we can help her though. So sad.
Thursday, we taught 2 investigators named Demetrio and Rosa. They are like 45, around there. Demetrio is taking the lessons well. He is going to read and pray about the book of Mormon! Sweet! His wife was sorta talking to a neighbor so she really wasnt paying attention. grrrrr. haha. Then later we had our noche de hogar.(FHE) I taught about being grateful for the things we have even during difficult times. I used an example where Iput a chocolate in the hand of my comp but also a rock in his shoe. Then i asked him to walk around and tell us how he felt. All he talked about or felt was the rock in his shoe. Sometimes we always focus on the thing that are hurting us or our trials and not focusing on the blessings like the chocolate that we have in our hands.  We always need to be grateful for the things we have even during hard times and if we do that we will notice less and less all of the burdens that we have or the things of the world.  Oh and we also did service today. We burned a lot of garbage that we sorted through for hna rosa. There were a ton of giant spiders.... not so fun. The fire was cool though.
Friday, we finally found the house of a reference, but she wasnt home and has crazy work hours. So we are still going to try to catch her when she is home! Then we visited the Tineo family. They are so cool. We talked a little about stuff and ate some food. haha. Then we went to another house. Talked a bit about the apostasy and priesthood, normal stuff.
Saturday, we talked with one of the sisters of hna rosa. Her name is flor and she really wants to find the true church. New investigator! Awesome! i love it. We will be teaching her this next week!!!    Then we had English classes and like 15 people came!!! wahoo! English! So that was fun. Then there was a huge boxing match going on by our room, like world tournament type of deal. There were a ton of people. So we bought a pizza and ate it on top of our roof. haha. But we couldnt see the match. Just a little too far away. Oh well. It was fun.
Sunday, first day of June! Crazy. It was nice to renew my covenants. Don’t you love it, the ability to become clean every week? Oh man i love it and then we had a delicious lunch. Papa la huancaina. i think thats how you spell it. haha. But ya really rico! and then talked to the Tineo family again and ended up making pancakes there again too! Oh i love pancakes. That was pretty much it. Some boring meetings that went too long. Oh well. gottta love Peruvians!!! haha.

    Well thanks for writing me like always!!! I love all of you and hope you have an awesome next week!!!!!
