2014-10-20 ...because he knew not where to find it

year in February)

Hey Everyone,
It was another great week here. Wilfredo was baptized on Saturday without any issues.  In his testimony in his baptism he spoke about how he didn't belong to any church even though he'd gone to visit many others.  He talked about how right if felt when he started coming to this church and that he plans on following this path for the rest of his life.  I think he is an excellent example of someone who was kept from the truth simply because he knew not where to find it.  He won't be confirmed until next week because Sunday was a special Stake Conference to reorganize the Stake Presidency.

Elder Wadell came to the conference to preside and spoke about the temple as did President Jensen (Cocha temple president).  That was perfect for Luis Miguel and Kevin who have their temple recommend interviews tomorrow and who we recently taught about the temple.  I'm excited to go to the temple with them.  I love the temple.

when the fog came in at Inca
Samuel (Kevin's little brother) also came with Kevin to the conference and we went back together afterward.  I asked him how he felt about baptism and he told me he wants to get baptized already.  His date is the 22nd of November.  His brother Alan isn't doing as well though.  He wasn't at our appointment and so we didn't see him this week.  We have a family home evening planned with them for this week to see if we can get the brother and also the dad more interested and (especially for the dad) to get them to like us more.  The dad's always polite with us and supportive of Kevin but it's going nowhere with him still.

We had 3 baptisms in the zone on Saturday which is a considerable improvement on what we've been having.

I don't remember if I told you, but Hermana Viqui (Gerardo's mom) got her endowments.  I saw them when we went to do a baptismal interview in the Alamos chapel.

 Also, we took the zone to Incachaka this morning.  We left at 6am and everyone was there on time which really impressed me.  Incachaka is on the way to but before Chapare.  It was a blast.  It is really dense jungle and smells really good.  There was no fog until about 10 when we watched it come in super fast.  It was really cool looking.  We saw a waterfall and also the devil's throat which is basically a small waterfall inside a stone room type thing but the rock is bright red.  It was cool.  We played capture the flag again in a little field after the hike to see the other cool stuff.  It got so foggy in the field that we couldn't see to the other side which was cool.

I hope you all have an awesome week.  Being a missionary is the best.  I love being here.
