Week 27-February 2, 2015
wow sounds like everything is great! way to have a fhe and invite people! who are anthony and vanessa though? also happy birthday lydia!!! sounds like you had a good one :) i thought about you yesterday and hope you got my letter!
thats crazy that mom and dad are going to germany! with aunt sonja!! super cool!
and taylors leaving in may?? cool im just happy we will get to talk on skype before he leaves!
also dont worry mom, the cream helped a little but my feet are still a disaster lol but its ok im not sufffering they r just ugly :P and i bought new shoes today!
this week was good, full of miracles as always! haha hna flores was sick the last weekend and all this week though so we spent some time in the house (i coooked and decorated packs of cigarettes with scriptures instead of cigarettes inside for an investigator and such while hermana flores slept). she had a fever and a cough so bad she couldnt sleep much until we found a magic medicine thing that a member gave us. funny cuz the mission rule is not to accept medicines from members and such cuz they might give us all kinds of weird stuff, but the mission doctor couldnt do anything except tell us to find a super sketchy pharmacy where they would sell us some medicine with codine to help her sleep (you need a prescription technically but the mission doctor cant give us one because she isnt a doctor in Chile), which we never found. haha so turns out the members were a lot more helpful...
also our apartment flooded this week so that was interesting. also flooded three apartments under us, which is a big bummer. thats kind of a long story, but the short of it is that our floor is damaged now, which is a big bummer.
but as for miracles this week, we taught a contact we did named Mauro this last week and he was awesome!!! we had a member come with us (sometimes that is the most frustrating part of missionary work.the members lol) and it was fantastic! then he came to church this sunday!! and the members were awesome and sat with him and invited him to play soccer tuesdays and such. we were super excited!!! we have a lesson with him tonight.oh and funny story, like i said we always invite to baptism and set a date the first lesson, especially if its a good one, so of course we invited him to baptism on theand he said he wanted to come to church first, so we said ^^ok but if you know its true by 22 de febrero will you be baptized that date? can we set it as a goal?^^ , like usual, and the member after he left the room was like ^¨haha i forgot how direct and persistent you guys are!^¨ haha she was kinda shocked that we had invited him to baptism and i thought about how dad said that other time that he was suprised that the missionaries invited the family you guys had a fhe with to baptism too. haha seems pretty normal to us now, although i was pretty scared of doing it before.
also in answer to dads questions, patricio didnt come to church this week so we went to his house after and had a super direct talk about his priorities and such haha and ortencia is pretty scared of being baptized and doesnt reaally want to go to church so we might have to leave her...and ya we teach lots of old ladies but i always feel weird cuz we are supposed to be looking for young families and priesthood and old ladies dont really fit in those categories :P and sometimes i think they are just being nice to us because we are in the street haha
anyway, all is well! have a great week! my camera has a virus or something so i may never send pictures again..:/ we will see... love you all!
