Monday - so we finally had a sweet charla with a family who owns a really nice bakery, and they give us some dope schochos. It was awesome, we watched the restoration and they all said they were gonna read the Book of Mormon that night. They are super cool, she was baptized awhile ago, but her son and husband aren’t members so that’s cool.
Tuesday - district meeting!!!!! it was good, we talked about personal revelation and how we need it, but more importantly- how to teach it to the investigators. Then we had a decent day for the rest of the day, haha we visited Sandra and her kid is busy! He’s sooo hyper and doesn’t care about anything, he’s 3 I think and always calls me mateo. Then he runs around hits people and spits, I think he spit in my mouth one time, hahahaha.... I almost threw up.... (not really)
Wednesday - So I was sick today, I had a little fever and I was super stuffed up and tired, but that ain’t stopping me!!! We went to Enrique and Ana, and he was also sick, but we talked about the atonement and how he can change. But they aren’t progressing at all, they’re slowly leaving all the things they need to do. It’s kinda sad but we can’t do much about them keeping commitment, just teach better I guess. Then we had a couple lessons in the night, oh haha also we talked with a lady who came to church last week, and she hasn’t been able to find work for 4 months, and now she found a job... buuutt now she has no time to talk. Haha funny how that worked. Maybe we should be a little less literal when we promise blessings so they get a job but can still talk to us.
Thursday - We went to Gustavos house for lunch today!!! It was really good, we had milanesas and mashed potatoes, sadly I didn’t eat a lot because I was a little sick, but I was feeling lot better than before! Then we visited Camila in the night and we talked about temples and she got super excited and said she wanted to come back to church, which is awesome because it’s been awhile since she came, it’s hard because we don’t have a lot of youth so she gets bored. Also we visited the Lemos and they’re struggling a lot, having a lot of testimony problems, so were gonna be there helping.
Friday - did a whole lotta nothing! planned in the morning, and then we went to the interview for Gustavo! and he passed with flying colors! It was awesome, he looked really happy afterwards, he was super prepared for this. Then we had a charla with Viviana in the church, and Benito an old dude in our ward was walking by and we grabbed him for the lesson, so we talked a lot. She thinks that our church and the catholic are true so we explained that and how there can only be one. It was dificult for her, and she felt really confused but I think God will fix all that. Then we had correlation with out mission leader, then I did some interviews for the sisters , they’re baptizing soo much over there, and that was my day
Saturday - the baptism!!! so we were going to have a lesson with a girl that some members brought to church, but she didn't go over there, so next week. Then we had lunch with Gladys! SHE ALWAYS MAKES STEAKS AND THEY’RE GOOD. So we went with the other elders then went to fill up the font for the baptism. Then we had the baptism with the other elders and Elder holland came up to see the baptism because he worked a lot with Gustavo. It was sweet, his brother in law baptized him! There’s such a good feeling at a baptism, like God opens that door to enter his path. Then they invited us over for a little party, because it’s Gustavo’s wife’s birthday. So we ate cake, pizza then played football afterwards and a guy we contacted came too!
Sunday - pretty interesting day, again, finding people home is very hard here, I don’t know why. We will teach them once then we can’t ever find them, but Gustavo got confirmed today which was awesome! After the confirmation he looked like ¨not bad, not bad¨ nodding his head.
So yea, it was a good week with a couple of the people we’ve been working with, but I know we can do a lot more here. All it needs it some hard work and positive attitude!
Sister Cameron from our Stake back home sent little packages out to a lot of missionaries.
Gustavo's baptism !!!
