We finally hit our goal of lessons with a member! We've had the goal of 12 for the past two changes and every week we've hit 11 but finally this week we got to 12! We were super happy! The members here are finally starting to help us more and more!! it was great because very last minute yesterday an active family called us to ask if we could go visit their friends with them! We didn't have any plans at that moment so we said yes! They came and picked us up in their motokar and we got to go visit a super cool family! We haven't met their dad yet, but the mom and daughter have lots of desires to know the truth! Super stoked.
|We had Family Home Evening with the Ruiz family. |
Their daughter is so cute I just had to take a picture with her!
|Welcome to Moyobama!|
|Cool staircase in my area!|
Also we had a huge miracle yesterday... we finally found a less active named Victor!! He hasn't come to church in over three months and used to be super active at church, but all of us sudden he was never home and never answered his phone. Last night, an awesome sister named Analis was accompaning us and all our plans fell through, but Analis was like, "maybe Victor is home!" Wow, what revelation, because he really was and we got to teach him for the first time in like 6 months! He recognizes that he´s drifted away from the church and he promised to pray this week for the strength to go to church . whoo!!
Janina has read her Book of Mormon all the way to 2 Nefi! Whoa!! She´s progressing super fast! She came to church too, but once again only stayed for one hour :(
Pablo came to church though! He´s friends with Orlando, so Orlando went to pick him up and they had a blast at church! Pablo is a crazy awesome investigator! We went to teach him about the Book of Mormon and he started talking to us about how it makes so much sense because he always wanted to know what happened after the Tower of Babel, and now that he knows about the Jaredites it makes sense! The funniest part... we never even talked about the Jaredites to him. He just read it in the Book of Mormon on his own! He´s super convinced and wants to get baptized but he doesnt know if he´s going to travel to Chiclayo in December, so he´s a little hesitant to accept a baptismal date, but we´re working on it!
Orlando´s divorce papers... STILL haven't come in! ahhh it's been a huge pain! We went today in the morning and they said that for sure it will be ready by T. UGH!!!! Hopefully they're not lying to us again!
|A cool butterfly landed on the chair next to me during district meeting!|
|It is my district leader's last transfer ... this is what he put on his agenda.|
I thought it was so funny ... I had to take picture of it.
This week a bunch of new missionaries came into our zone! Three new elders and one new sister... like newbies! straight out of the MTC! To give them a big welcome, we brought ants and told them it was their rite (right?) of passage into the Moyobamba Zone. haha. The elders all ate them!! I'm sure they're all writing their families today about the ants they ate on their first day in the field! hahahahahahaha
So yup, that was my week!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I might celebrate a little with Hermana Laura but here in Peru, Thanksgiving doesn't exist :(
