Wrap up of the week, TIME IS FLYING.
I just love being with the members here, LOVE THEM. We are teaching English classes here, its the best. Mainly all the YSA come and bring investigator friends and it's HILARIOUS. But also makes me wonder how bad i actually sound speaking Spanish. We also had a ward mission night, we do them every Friday. Conveniently, we have interviews with president this week and they are going to be in our ROOMS. Which means our rooms need to be pretty clean. Sooo we basically cleaned out all the garbage and junk we had in our room, and the elders did it too, and we threw it all on a table and had all the members create things. And then we talked about the talents that God has given us. :) Worked out good, got rid of the random junk in our room, and the members/investigators went home happy with their new creations. :)
We are teaching the cutest little 15 year old girl, Carol. She is a convert's cousin, SO awesome. Comes to church by herself, made friends with all the young women. But her parents have been super against the church. BUT turns out her grandpa is a member, and her dad just decided that she can get baptized! And her grandpa is going to baptize her! So we are super excited, that is on Sept. 24. :)
Also the coolest lady has been coming to church for the last few weeks that we still havent been able to teach because she keeps changing appointments on us, but comes to every activity and every Sunday. Katerine. She had been having a lot of doubts about the Catholic church, and she is LOVING everything she is learning about the church. So we finally get to teach her this week!
People are throwing referrals at us like crazy, sooo it's AWESOME we always have cool, new, interested people to teach. Life is so good, lovin it.
So NO i did not feel any earthquake here, actually had no idea there was one. But it has been raining and I LOVE IT. Rare for this place.
Things Ill miss from Peru: street vendors walking through the streets yelling to sell their products at 6 AM. What am i gonna do when i cant get front door service of soy milk every day??
Ive been thinking a lot about conference coming up, so this week for some reason Ive been reading a bunch of old conference talks. And we are SO blessed to have a prophet and leaders in the church to guide and cousel us. Lots of my prayers have been answered by talks I have read, and more than ever I know that we have a living prophet. Also we just got the news that Elder Hugo Montoya is coming in October to the mission so that will be cool. Hna Spain and I are trying to put more emphasis on HOW cool living day prophets are because so many people dont understand that or know.
Love the mish more and more every day, The "youre coming home" reminders needa stop.:) Vengan a peru si me quieren ver porque Im never coming home!
Love and miss you all! Xoxo
