Well mostly my news is that I’m going to a new area. That’s not at all what I was hoping for but I’m sure it will be alright.
We are having a family home evening with them (the Flores family--one presumes) tonight and I’ll see them for my last lunch tomorrow.
Yesterday was a lot of fun until I got my cambio. Sergio and I went on cambios (I think he meant splits) and it poured all afternoon and night. People are more likely to let you into their houses to teach when it is raining so we got to teach 4 lessons in 4 hours in houses and I love the rain. We found an 18 year old kid who lives alone way up in the mountains who seems really interested. He wanted to talk forever and said a really nice and sincere prayer to finish our lesson.
Things are going well with Brenda who was baptized but never confirmed.
Johnny Diaz has helped us out a ton, he has brought more than 10 of his friends to church and we are actively teaching 7 of them now. We only baptized him less than 3 months ago. Brian and Sebastian are introducing us to friends too and one of their friends is a serious investigator. His name is Ario (18 years old) and I really like him because he is really level headed and calm, not at all like Sebastian and Brian. I love them too but Ario is a lot more like my friends are. He is really excited to introduce us to his family. It’s just hard to get a day to teach them because both of his parents work and travel for work a lot.
I can’t remember if I’ve told you about Rudy who the Huaraña family introduced us to. He is a great investigator but plays on a soccer team that has games on Sunday. He is 22 and studying in the college here. We took Johnny with us for a lesson this week and it was probably one of the most spiritual lessons I’ve had in my time here. Johnny told his story of dropping out of his volleyball team during a tournament to be able to come to church and he knows he made the right choice.
I was remembering the other day when while we still lived in Provo we were all eating orange creamsicle ice cream in the kitchen and then we all grabbed dish towels and were running around the kitchen trying to hit each other. That must have been at least 10 years ago and I have no idea why I remember it but I do.
Sorry I don’t have a ton of time to write today but I’ll have lots to tell you next week.
Remember not to do anything that will keep you out of the Celestial Kingdom and have a great week everybody!
