Hey guys! This week was super cool! Way better than last week! I hope you all had a super scary Halloweennnn, haha. Here in the jungle me and Velazquez celebrated by wearing black and orange and buying Oreos and milk... not super Halloweenish but we were semi happy so it works (; Velazquez stayed with us until Tuesday this week cause Fink was in Iquitos for a meeting. Monday we visited Lorena and José and they told us that they are going to get baptized but that they don’t want to put the date on it.. ugh. But whatever, you can totally see the change in them and that they know that it is true but I think they just want to feel super strong before they make the commitment. We are just gonna keep helping them learn! I wish they would get baptized like right now buttt the date is not as important to God as the promise and commitment that they will make so I think it’s all good.
Tuesday we had a service project with the whole stake and I got sunburned. So everyone this week has commented on my skin color change "wow estas super chemada, pon tu sombrero" haha.
We are visiting a lady named Milagros. She is super cool and completes with her compromises (commitments) but hasn’t come to church yet! Her dad lives with her and he is 94!? He is suuuuper hilarious though and always talks to us. Last time he brought out 3 watches and two of them were broken. He would take out one watch and describe it to us, telling us what was wrong with it then put it back in his shirt pocket and take out the other one and describe to us what was wrong with that one but that it was "a really good watch" and then tell his daughter that they need to take them to get fixed and then put them back in his pocket. Then 30 seconds later he would start all over again telling us about his watches hahaha suuuuper cute.
This week was cool because we found 2 new families!!! One of them is family of a less active who has received missionaries before. We visited them and they said that they already want to get baptized haha. So that’s super cool!! But we gotta get them married though and they want to keep learning and everything before they put any dates. Their names are Juan and Jacqueline.
The other family contacted US. We were walking home one night and this little kid came up to us and said that some girl wanted to talk to us. The girl is Janessey and she lives with her boyfriend and wants us to teach them because he has a couple of addiction problems and knows that we can help! I was able to teach them with Hermana Fink because she came to my area to do a work visit and it went super good, so we are excited to see their progress.
This week was stake conference and we had 5 investigators in church!!! Also one of the 70 came, Elder Alarcon. And Elder Godoy (he’s super cool) came and visited just the Elders and he spoke to Pres Li and they made some rule changes in our mish! Now we can’t have any pdays with the elders..(they’re crackin down on us) (; But he said that it’s just better if the girls and guys were separated on pdays.
That’s about it! Seeing some progress again which is always good! My comp Hna Mora finishes her mish and leaves this Thursday so I’ll be alone again like it seemed I allllways was when I first started my mish, but it’s all good(: haha
Oh this week I ate majas (it looks like a big guinea pig with spots and deer meat and it was really good and next week I’m eating salchavaca... (it looks like a type of pig with an anteater type nose ). Wild meat from the jungle. haha but mom I gotta go!!! (:
Love you lots!
