MONDAY, pday! We said goodbye to everyone today because my comp, elder vinces is going to my last area in las magnolias! haha. Cool. I am staying here as district leader! Sweet!
TUESDAY, so today i met my companion elder arroyo who has the same amount of time as elder vinces. He is 23 or 24. He is cool. I am excited to see how this next transfer goes. I feel like I am going to learn a lot. Oh and ya i now have 2 more sisters in my district. The elders joke around saying that i am the relief society president. haha. Surrounded by girls, just like at home! haha.
WEDNESDAY, we had a couple of problems that i had to take care of and then afterwards i got back late soooo ya we didnt have very many lessons that day haha.
THURSDAY, today i taught my first district meeting this transfer. I taught about how changes (cambios) aren’t just changes in areas or a change of companions but also a change in who we are and what we do, a change of being. It was cool because after everyone went around and said what they learned and it was cool as the members of my district talked about what they had learned. It helped me feel like i had made a difference that helped them. Then after we also had a couple of problems and we only were able to teach one lesson. But it was a very spiritual lesson with a member who is having some problems in his family. The spirit was way strong there.
FRIDAY, today i felt the spirit a lot. First we were walking and i felt like we had to knock on a door. We did and we ended up teaching a new family. They let us right in, they had been taught by the missionaries before but then they had stopped visiting them. A new family! Awesome! Then daniel maita took us to an investigator. It was cool because daniel, who is less active, taught with the spirit. Daniel is awesome. Then we took him home at night and chatted outside his house. The spirit was also really strong there, but then it was funny because a guy started bathing on the other side of the street with a bucket. Lovely. haha.
SATURDAY, today we taught a bunch of investigators who are progressing slowly. We are also trying to prepare george, a recent convert to go and do baptisms for the dead. The only problem is that the temple just closed for a month or two. Dang it, but thats ok. We will just have to be patient. We have also been contacting a lot. Whenever our appointments fall through which almost always happens, we contact. But i love it. You never know who you are going to meet!
SUNDAY, today was awesome. After church we ate lunch with the bishop and i think that it was the best meal that i have eaten here in Peru. It was soooo good and then we went with daniel again to visit prudencio, the investigator who actually has a granddaughter in the mission. Anyway, as we were talking he told us that he wanted to be baptized, but not just that, but that he wanted to be baptized in the river! Cool. We are going to be working with him these next few weeks in order to prepare him for that day! Awesome! He also started crying in the lesson as we talked about his granddaughter and how him getting baptized is something that she wants him to do too. So cool. The spirit is amazing.
Well that is my week for ya. Thanks for all that you guys do! You’re the best! i love all of you! Have a great next week! Love yalls!
