Let's see. We lost a few days of work this week because my poor companion has been having a hard time adjusting to the food. We got to go see a specialist in a really nice part of Central Lima though. So that was pretty cool. We got to see some fancy castley like buildings and go to a really really really nice Plaza for lunch.
On Wednesday night we had a fun ward activity. We all put on a circus! And everyone danced and played crazy games and had all sorts of fun. (Don't worry, we didn't dance much more than a few finger wiggles since we're missionaries and all). It was awesome because we had a ton of inactives and references there.
Let's see... On Sunday we got our burn on with the ward council. We pulled out Jacob 1:19 on them. If you're ever feeling a little like you don't have to actually do anything to press forward the work of the Lord, just remember that the blood of those around you is on your garments! It's just a little motivating for me to think that the salvation of these souls is literally on my shoulders. And the shoulders of everyone here in the San Carlos ward. We'll see if it worked if we have references in church next week. Maybe fear is one of the best motivators. Hmmmm.
Jorge had to take a trip to see his dad in Chicalayo this week, so we haven't seen him since Monday. We've been super worried about him since we know that Satan is super sneaky. We just ask for more and more prayers! His baptismal date is for the 22nd of this month, so we need 19 more days of super extra protection prayers por favor.
We also had a miracle of sorts land on our laps yesterday. After church, a woman that has been attending the ward for 10 years but couldn't get baptized (because her husband didn't want to get married) explained that her husband wants to get married this week and she's ready for the water! It was a kind of "did I just hear you right?" kind of moment. So she'll be baptized as soon as we get her papers all worked out to get her married.
Oh! And this week we had interviews with President. He left me thinking about something interesting. I started my first few steps of a new journey this week: Coming to Know Christ. I'm starting with Doctrine and Covenants 93:1, where there are five steps to knowing Christ. It's a kind of personal experience, and I'm not sure how much of my findings I should divulge, but I invite you all to take a similar journey. I'm pretty excited.
I love you all. Take good care of yourselves.
Abrazos y besos!
