So yeah sorry for not writing yesterday there wasnt any power in the town so we couldnt write... On Sunday night it rained somewhat hard and usually when it rains hard like that the power goes out for like a day or so.. So yeah thats why we werent able to write but President Williams said we could write today!
So anyways this last week went pretty well! Its kind of weird being in a small town with a little branch of like 40ish people!? Its kind of a cool experience! Well this week i was just trying to get to know the area better because my companion Elder Segura goes home tomorrow!? So like i said before we still dont really know whats going to happen with me! I could get left here and stay with a mini missionary or they could shut don the area and i would get changed to somewhere else but i still dont know and its killing me because i really want to know what going to happen!! Im sure theyll tell us really soon!
So on Tuesday it was pretty normal we studied in the morning and then we went out and visited a couple people and did some contacts and it actually ended up being a pretty productive morning! It is super hot here in Morrope and it doesnt help that its humid! Sometimes i would like to go swimming because its so hot!? Anyways after lunch we went out visiting and almost all of the appointments that we had scheduled failed on us.. Thats was a bummer because we had made some plans to teach some people and when we went to teach them they werent there.. Which is kind of weird because i feel like the people here in Morrope are a lot more receptive and they let us in more frequently which is pretty cool!! Tuesday we were able to go out visiting with a member named Alez which was pretty cool because we dont go out with members very much here..
Wedensday morning after studying we traveled like 30ish minutes to Lambayeque and we had out district meetings and since im the district leader i have to give the 1 to 1 and a half class!? Its kind of nerve-racking sometimes because you have to stand up there and teach a group of missionaries that studies the scriptures a lot and are very intelligent people and they basically know everything they need to do... So yeah i basically just help them remember the things they need to do! In the district are Elder Azaña and Elder Watkins, Sister Corona and Sister Wood, and the Zone Leaders, Elder Bowyer and Elder Ricapa! Its pretty cool eing a district leader i guess.s Its kind of stressful sometimes too!
Thursday ended up being a pretty good day! In the morning we went and visited Emily and her cousin Carlos and we had a pretty good lesson with Carlos who attended the 7th day adventist church for a whole but hes inactive right now and we think he could progress! Then in the morning we did some more contacts! Its kind of hard doing contacts in a small town like this because all of the poeple here have been contacted before and some of them more than once.. So i guess well just have to contact everybody until they get tired of shutting the door on us! In the afternoon we were able to go out visiting with Alez again and it went pretty well! We were able to get a couple visits in but not as many as we had planned.. I guess not everything always goes the way you want it too..
Friday we had weekly planning in the morning and then in the afternoon we went to Lambayeque because i had to do a baptismal interview for on the of the investigators who they are teaching! Thats was a pretty nerve-racking experience too! I was super scared to do it but i guess after all it went pretty well! So that took up almost all of Friday and we werent able to do much else on Friday.
Saturday morning we went out and just did lots of contacts and nothing much came of the contacts that we did which was a bummer! In the afternoon we went out tried to visit some people and we were able to visit a couple which was pretty cool! After all it ended up being a good day!
Sunday was the best day of the week though!! In the morning we went to church and that went pretty well! My companion gave a talk because it was his last Sunday in the mission! Its always lridiculously hot in the Chapel house that we rent and its hard to concentrate sometime because youre just sweating the whole time and its kind of misrable but theyre trying to get some fans to make it better! Anyways in the afternoon we usually go out and we usually arent able to get much done because everybody is usually busy on Sunday, but it was different this time!! We had done some contacts on one street the day before and we set up three appointments with some people on the same street and we went and every single one of them let us in and we were able to share soemthing special with them! After dinner we went to a recent converts house and we were able to talk with her sister too for the first time and it was really cool and we think that she ould progress very well in the future! All in all Sunday ended up being a good day and at night i recieved the reports and passed them to the Zone Leaders and thats all for the week!
I know this church is true and one of my favorite things about it is one of the Article of Faith that we have, " We believe all that God has revealed, all that he does now reveal and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the kingdom of God! I love that we have continuous reveltaion and are guided by true prophets and apostles today!! Love you all!!
