This week was kind of crazy. We had some awesome days, and we had some downright horrible days. I really don't like horrible days. They're exhausting.
We had our first day with zero lessons. That was a sad day. We went to plan A, plan B, plan C, knocked on some doors. The works. Nobody let us in. Nadie!
We've been working with two investigators in particular that we have been so excited to get baptized this month. Seriously, they're awesome. We are teaching them with members, we are going over a lot, they have real desires to change and be baptized. They all seem super awesome until Sunday, when they don't go to church! I don't understand why people have to lie about commiting to things. It's really heartbreaking. We are getting to be so worried about them all the time, studying really hard to meet their needs, praying and fasting for them. And then they decide to go play soccer on Sunday instead of going to church. At first it's sad, and then it's frustrating. We had to change some baptismal dates.
Halloween was relatively uneventful. Not a lot of people celebrate it here. The old people think that we Americans are devil worshipers of sorts. It's pretty funny.
The work is pressing on here in barrio San Carlos. Everyone is getting training on the Work of Salvation, where the ward members are the missionaries, filling our agendas, and we just show up to teach. The concept is ingenius, we're just hoping our dear Peruvian friends can commit to helping us out! We are definitely losing faith in people.
On a more light hearted note, the sun is coming out here! It's kind of horrible how strong it is, but I'm getting some fantastic tan lines. Everyone thinks it's funny how the gringas change colors. :)
Anywho. Til next week, my dear friends! Pray that these people can keep their commitments this week.
Con mucho amor,
