March 31, 2014
So something kind of cool happened with our family we are working with. Olga (the mom), Eufemia (the grandma), Cesar (the Dad), and then they have like 3 kids and a few cousins who we are also teaching. Anyway, so this Saturday and Sunday we had a district conference with some of the leaders, the mission’s president, his first counselor, and then the local leaders. But we invited the family and so on Saturday the grandma and mom showed up at the door but saw all the people and got scared and left. Anyway, we talked to them that night and invited them to the next session on Sunday in Ayaviri. Anyway, they said they were going to be in the compo (country side) but the dad is a combi driver (like a van driver) and he said that the church hired him to be a driver the next day. Man we really saw the Lord’s work in that one.
So the next day him and Eufemia, the grandma, showed up and attended the conference. The whole time me and Elder Nicholls were just praying for them to be able to feel the spirit. After it, we talked to them and asked how they were feeling and we also have another appointment this Thursday to invite the family to watch general conference at the church in Ayaviri. All the American elders watch it separately in English. Also we had 12 investigators in our district go to the conference. Also we are starting to get references from the members which is good. So yea this week is pretty sweet.
We also got some new sister missionaries in our zone so we now have a total of 10 in zone Ayaviri. One has been out for a while and the other just came out of the MTC. It’s funny though because i now know more Spanish than someone else.
Also I didn’t get any pictures of the adobe house but I’ll try to this week. And basically all we did was get water and move bricks. They actually hire a maestro to build the house and direct the work. I also ate chunyo for the first time which is basically rotten potato.... Yum.... Anyway we had a really fun and good week this week. We also set a goal to have 12 baptisms in our district and 6 rescues.
Well that’s about it for the events of this week. As far as weather goes, it’s really hot when it’s sunny and then 30 minutes later we get a hail storm. But yea I’m loving it here.
