So yeah. You know how I told you all that we were working a lot with the Elders from another ward? Well we baptized almost all of their references. It was really exciting. We baptized two single moms, Janeth and Rosa, and two little girls, Nexi and Nikole. We chased people down all week trying to get them to their interviews, ran around making sure people actually showed up to the baptism, I gave my first improv baptism talk, and we had four people baptized. It was exciting. The paperwork part is a lot less exciting, and even more stressful. But no matter, because it's all taken care of now.
We're feeling bad for our ward, San Carlos, because we have almost no progressing investigators. It's really sad! This week we're rolling out a new program, "La Obra de Salvación" where we will be working a lot more with inactives and with references that are from the members. Hypothetically it's going to be fantastic. It's just going to take a ton of work from us and the members.
Did you know that here in Perú, elections are pretty weird? Next Sunday we don't have church because by law, we can't hold any meetings on election day. And it's illegal to vend alcohol all of election day weekend, because they want everyone to be sober for elections! I guess a bunch of military personel will be at the schools next week helping with voting. We still don't know what we will be doing yet. But it should be interesting.
Pray that we can find us some Familias de Oro that will progress really soon! We really need to support this ward.
Love you all! Until next week. <3
