We got attacked by a dog!?

Week #75
Hey Everyone!!

Well this week went alright after all! 

We played some soccer on Monday as usual because there isnt really much else to do in our Zone.. Anyways we played socceer for 2 hours!? We normally play for 1 but this week we played for 2 and it was super hot!!! The think that kind of stunk is that after we played soccer my head kind of hurt for the rest of the day.. I think i need to exercise on a more regular basis! I have been trying lately but its hard sometimes because youre just sooo tired!! 

So on Tuesday we woke up and got ready and went to our district meetings with the other Elders! We always have to take a mototaxi to get there but the thing is there arent any  paved streets going to the church so its kind of like an offroad trip!? It was fun the first time but yeah its king of annoying now!? Anyways the meeting were good as usual! Then we went out proselyting in the afternoon! Some days are better than others and other days are just like walking around trying to get into peoples houses and nobody lets you in!? So on those days you kind of just ended up walking around talking to a whole bunch of people!! We almost always get home way tired from walking around a bunch but i guess thats a good thing!
Wednesday and Thursday nothing much really interesting happened! They are two of the 3 days when we go out and proselyte in the morning and its always super hot and sunny in the morning and sometimes it hard to get the desire to preach the gospel and talk to the people because its so hot and the youre just walking around sweating all the time! Ususall when we get home i can see the white sweat stains on my pants behind me knees from sweating so much!! Thursday night my companion went to Lima to do some paperwork for his Visa and things like that and i ended up going to another area and staying with another companion for all of Friday! I was in Las Brisas and thats right next to La Pradera! We climbed up this hill and on the other side of the hill you could see La Pradera and it was kind of cool! The missionary I stayed with is also training so we shared some insights and learned some new techniques to apply to our companions which was cool! Fridday went well and it was kind of a cool experience being with another missionary and seeing the way he teaches and some of the things like that! Oh i almost forgot.. Friday in the morning when i was with the other Elder, Elder Smith was his name, we got attacked by a dog!? Nothing really happened though but we were walking along the street and out of nowhere this little dog comes running out behind this taxi and jumps out on Elder Smiths leg trying to bite hime but he kind of kneed the dog in the face and the dog fell on its back but got back up and jumped on my leg trying to bite me but i turned around and was about to kick the think but it got scared and then ran away!? It was a small dog but it was still kind of crazy! No damage done though.. 

Saturday we woke up and did weekly planning which we didnt get to do on Friday because my comp was in Lima! Then after weekly planning we went out and proselyted for the rest of the day but nothing really eventful happened.. Just ended up walking around trying to find new investigators which isnt going he greatest.. Everytime we go back to their houses to teach them they arent there or they say the cant meet with us.. We will find some chosen people soon though!! I can feel it!!

Sunday was alright i guess! The ward went to the Lima temple this Friday, Saturday and the all got back Sunday right when we were finihsing the first hour of church and they all walked in the back of the church in their street clothes just to be there and take the sacrament!! It was kind of funny seeing the Bishop sitting on the stand in a t-shirt and sweat pants!? The thing that was a surprise though is that in the morning like 10 minutes before the sacramemnt meeting started they asked me to give a talk because the other ward members werent going to get back from Lima on time!? So i have to wing a 10 mintues talk and i guess after all it went alright.. Got to be prepared!! Sunday nobody really came to church but i guess a lot of people were in Lima.. 

Well thats all for this week! I know that this church is true! One thing i like studying this week was the Article of Faith!! I memorized them in English and in Spanish!! I know that what the Article of Faith testify of are true!! I love being a member and a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ! Love you all!!
