Week 62

October 17, 2016

So this week was crazy!

We've been trying to teach Jhonny as often as possible this week because we thought he was going to get baptized this upcoming Saturday.  Then they announced that there will be a district conference (stake conference, but the church is small here so it's district conference) and so now Jhonny has to wait till NEXT Saturday, the 29th to get baptized.  It is actually better because now we have more time to really teach him! The poor thing though, he tells us he wants to get baptized and then we spent an entire week just teaching him commandments he has to live hahah! He is so good, he said he wasn't keeping all the commandments, but from now on he will! It's so awesome being able to see his conversion! 

In Peru, they eat a lot of Paneton (it is basically just cake) for Christmas.
They are selling tons of it right now in the stores
so it is getting us excited for Christmas

Our pensionista is going to Chiclayo for a month for her health.
We now have a new pensionista.  This is us saying good bye!

I was able to work with Hermana Inca again this week!  Blast to the past! I did a work visit with her (or just splits I think is what they say in English, I don't know) and so for twenty four hours I was working with her in her area. She really reminded me of the importance of focusing on the needs in the lessons! Sometimes I feel like I get too caught up in making sure we teach all the doctrine that I forget they have needs! It was a great reminder.

This week I ate ants again! but this time, toasted and, like everyone told me, it was better! But it´s something I don't want to eat again! hahaha

Also this week Jhonny had an interview with our district leader and so we show up to the church and SURPRISE! bug infestation! I took a picture, but you can't really tell in the picture. Basically, there were these little bugs ALL OVER THE FLOOR; WALLS AND CEILING! It was gross! and it was Saturday night, so if we didn't clean it up then, it would be a huge surprise for everyone the next day at church.  We took out some brooms from the cleaning closet and started stepping on bugs and sweeping!  We were there for like an hour cleaning out all the bugs!  It was horrible but we were laughing our heads off. We finally cleaned it all up and then realized that the bugs were following the light, so it would have been so much easier if we had just turned off all the lights! ... but it was a "fun" experience for all!

Bug infestation ... even though you can't really see them in the picture!

It's been a fun week! 

Love you and miss you all!
