It has been a pretty good week!
We finally got a fan in our room! Thats makes the heat a little more bearable! Other than that we worked pretty hard this week getting Lizbeth ready for baptism. On Friday we had her baptism and all went well with her baptism!
On Saturday morning we went to the stake center for the first session of general conference and when we got there, there were like 10 people there in total to watch it. All the other North American people and I went and got this extra TV that the stake has and we plugged it in to the cable and it worked so yes we did get to see the conference in english!!! That was probably the highlight of the week for me! After the first session of conference we went to eat lunch with the members and they fed us guinea pig and lets just say that it was not very good at all. They also said that its like the most common plate here in Jaen so lets hope that i dont see that very many times while im here. Then we came back and watched conference and after the second session we stayed in the church and played monopoly while we waited for the priesthood session to start! After the preisthood session we all went out to eat as a zone just like we do in California! We went to a place called Sabor y Miel and its actually a pretty good restaurant. I got a hamburger and one of the other elders had bbq sauce and that was pretty good and i also had this frozen lemonade which was pretty good too! Then we came back to the room and went to bed. Then we got up and went to conference and after that we ate lunch with another member and it was chicken potatoes and a mountain of rice or in mission terms, Machu Pichu de arroz. I dont even get how they eat that much food!! After we ate we ended up playing jacks with the sister and she was really good at jacks and creamed us every time! It was pretty fun though! After that we went to conference and after that we basically got to chill in our room for a while! All in all i would say that i enjoyed and learned a lot from conference and it really helped that it was in English!
Other than that we had changes in the zone but nothing big happened. One of the sister in our district went to Chiclayo and a new one is coming tomorrow night and shes going to be straight from the MTC. Ill be with Elder Flores for another 6 weeks. It might be a test of my patience but im sure that that's something i will learn in the mission! Other than that everything's going well and were hoping to have some baptisms coming up soon here!
We actually met some investigators a couple of weeks ago and we had a lesson with them this week. We taught them about the Plan of Salvation and after we explained what we were here to do on the earth and that baptism was something essential. The dad of the family stopped us and asked us if they had to get married to get baptized and so we explained that they did and why they did and the mom of the family said that she wanted to get married and join a church at the same time and it was like music to our ears! We are going to work with them in the near future and hopefully helped them to get married and baptized as well! That would be very cool!
Anyways that all for this week! Hope you all have a great week! Love you all!
