The power of fasting!!

Week #69
Hey Everyone!!

Well this week went a lot better for us and it was pretty awesome!!

So i guess things are started to get back to normal now that all the parties and things are over because we were able to visit a lot more people this week which was awesome!

We were able to visit some new people this week which was really cool! Its kind of hard sometimes when the members dont give us references to go off of but we have to do the best with what we have got! So yeah a couple of the people that we contacted this week let us in and so we have started working with them!!

One of the investigators that is progressing is Blanca S.!! She hadnt come to church these past couple of weeks but she came to church yesterday which was awesome!! She said in one of the later visits that we had with her that she had felt that something was missing and that when she went to church she felt a lot better and she think that she was missing something because she hadnt come to church! So this week we have met with her 3 times and the first time we met with her we talked for a little while and she started telling us that she knew the church was true and how she knew the Book of Mormon is true and everything so we decided to extend her a bapttismal date for the 17th of January and we told her to pray about it and she said she would! So the next time we went to her house she told us that she had prayed but that she was passing through some difficulties and had some fears and that she didn feel prepared to get baptized.. That was a bummer because we totally thought that she was going to accept and it was going to be awesome! SO we just invited her to keep praying about it and see what God wants her to do! When we got to dinner that night we decided that we were going to fast for her! So on Saturday we started a fast for her and on Sunday after the fast we had a lesson with her and it was a super awesome lesson!!! We could definately see how fasting had helped and the miracles and blessings that God had given us!! Blanca accpeted a baptismal date for the 24th  of January and we feel like she is prepared to do this and she knows everything is true!! That had to be one of the better experiences of the mission right there!! It definatley built my testimony of fasting and the power of fasting!! 

Other than that the drunk people still come up to us and they always have to talk to the two gringos that are walking around and the people still yell out things all the time at us!! You got to love Peru though!! Haha!! Well thats about all that was interesting this week!! I know that God lives and that he hears our pleas! I have witnessed it first hand many times!! Love you all!!
