Week 44


So this week has been pretty crazy!

First, I would like to share some scriptures to help illustrate what happened this week-

Exodus 15:22- "So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water."

Helaman 12:16- "And behold, also, if he say unto the waters of the great deep—Be thou dried up—it is done."

So take your guesses...yup, that's right, for three days this week we didn't have water in our apartment! 

It rained super hard on Wednesday afternoon and apparently that caused some pipe to break somewhere and that stopped all water from coming into Shilcayo.  So all of Shilcayo was without water for three days. Luckily for everyone who isn't a missionary...there are some natural reservoirs of water and people went out there and brought back buckets of water. We however, were a little too busy saving souls that we couldn't go get water. ;) We almost had to resort to buying water bottles in the store and using those to shower! Luckily, the water came back just in time! 
So remember Felipe and Sara and their kids? Well, the parents had to work yesterday and didn't come to church :(  But their kids did!! They all showed up dressed nicely, and they even brought their 3 year old sister! They seemed to have a really good time.  We´re going to visit them tonight and see how much they liked it! We were so proud of them for coming on their own!

Meli keeps coming to church with her grandkids and her husband Gerardo is still travelling back and forth from their farm.  He just never happens to be in Tarapoto when it's Sunday! She's still unsure if she has received an answer, so we´re trying to work with her to recognize her answer and also to understand more of what were teaching. I know she´ll start progressing soon!

Family Home Evening with Raiza and her family!

That's pretty much all that has been going on this week.  It was a pretty fun week! We hope to find new people this week and I know it will be awesome!!!

One last thing- my new favorite scripture, I wrote it on my agenda for this change...

Doctrine and Covenants 6:33 - " Fear not to do good, my sons, for whatsoever ye sow, that shall ye also reap; therefore, if ye sow good ye shall also reap good for your reward."

It's a great scripture that reminds us to always do good, cause if we do good, we will be blessed!  I've also learned that numbers (baptisms) don't reflect the missionary.  As long as you try your hardest, God will bless you the most ... that could be in baptisms, or it might not be, but what is important is that you try.

Dad's car showed up at the hospital in La Banda!

Awesome View!

Love you all! Have a great week!
