Good Week….. Went byeeeeee so fast its kinda unreal how fast the last couple weeks have been going bye, its pretty dang crazy, life kinda just passes ya bye. First off Fleas have been killing me lately, I am so allergic to these things, it would’ve been a joke to say this when I was a younger and think  “One day I will be infested with fleas” never quite imagined that, but here we are hahah, im just trying to learn how not to scratch. Its funny though cause only the gringos get the fleas, all the Chileans don’t have fleas at all. So i´ve just trying to be as Chilean as possible and maybe ill get rid of the fleas one day. But it’s all good, nothing too bad.
Ill tell you what tho, its like my comp and I run the streets around here….. Everyone runs when they see us. Nahhh but today has been a tougher week, it rained literally everyday this past week and all of our appointments fell so that’s not the most fun, so we just walked the streets, knocked doors in the pouring rain and tried to find some people. ¨We are looking that’s forsure, I know for a fact there are people prepared and Heavenly Father is preparing people right now as we speak. Its like in Alma (Alma Chapter 8 I’m pretty sure) When Alma is  preaching to a city and he’s rejected and doesn’t find anyone who wants to hear the good word and he leaves the city and then an angel appears to him and tells him to go back and he does and he finds Amulek who was totally prepared by the Lord and then Amulek helped Alma out and left with him to preach the gospel. Pretty sweet! So forsure there are people prepared! We just gotta find them and listen to the spirit!!
Okay so we knocked like every door this week, but sunday was all worth it. Icalled mariainez and paulinna saturday night (Our Investigators) and was just reminding them for church ya know and was like we are gonna call you sunday at 9 to help you get up and everything like that and she likes it doesnt matter we are going anyways! Sweet so they showed up, on time too, and stayed all three hours! They both loved it and paulinna loved young womens and is gonna go to mutual thursday! SWEEET!
Then we went bye their house sunday evening with two members who they have actually known for a decent amount of time. They came with us and we taught the word of wisdom, im not gonna try and jinx this but they totally just gave up everything they mightve had a problem with before just like that! And the memebrs we were with are so funny, they were making jokes like yeah "we better start filling up the faunt now" and, "you know if you have more sins you have to stay under water longer" and how me and my comp cant be switched areas yet cause we gtta baptize them first and they just laugh and say yes and they will be baptized the 7th of may. The date had to change a little bit cause of certain stuff but we prayed about it and its totally meant to be and they are really excited and said yes right away when we asked them this. So happy and it was awesome to hear them tell us after they went to church and they were just like "what you guys believe is not anything close to what all the other people say about the mromons and your religion and how you worship Joseph Smith andhave a rug where you walk on Jesus face when you come to church" we just laughed it is good to hear that and see they are understanding a lot more now!
Very very stoked! dont are that the whole time were just walking and knocking doors cause if these are the poeple who are prepared in this time for right now, im way excited, cause they lord is really blessing all of us!
this week is cambios so it will be a lot of working and running around and all the new people come, should be fun!
Love you All!
