So this week has been really awesome!!
So we have recently been working really hard to find some new people who are really interested in progressing and we have been trying to get others to progress for almost two months now without really much success but this week was a week full of miracle for us!!
So on Monday we went to this gift shop right next to one of the museums in Lambayeque and we bought some cool souvenirs and it was pretty fun! We also ate at a really nice restaurant called Mis Algarrobos and it was delicious! Well have to go back there again some time! Then we came back and the rest of the night we tried visiting people but we didn't have any luck! So it was kind of a rough start for the week but we still felt pretty good about the new week!
Tuesday ended up being an awesome day!! We went contacting all morning and none of them were super cool besides one person! We contacted a lady named Maria and she said we could come back another time and so we left to knock on the next door and right when we started talking to the next person she came back out of her house and called us over so my comp went over and talked to her while i talked to the other person and it turns out that she and her husband wanted us to come back at 6! So we came back at 6 and they let us in and we had a great lesson with Maria and Flores! They showed a genuine interest in learning more and they told us they wanted us to teach them about marriage and baptism! That was like music to our ears! We scheduled and appointment to go back but throughout the rest of this week we haven't been able to find them but were definitely going to try hard this week to find them! Tuesday we also had the first lesson with an 18 year old kid we had contacted last week named Cristian! He was really cool and he was really interested in what we had to say! He accepted the message really well and we also made appointment}s to go back but weren't able to find him so were going to try again this week!
So we have a slogo in the mission that is basically like "We study in the morning, work in the afternoon, and see the miracles at night" and This week we have really seen that come to pass! Almost every single day of this week when we were going back to the room there would be people that would call us over and ask us questions and want us to visit them and it didn't just happen one but a few times this week! This week had definitely been a week of tender mercies!
Another tender mercy was that somehow we were able to talk with our families! Our original plan was to go down to Lambayeque to an internet that said they were going to be open and that had cameras but right before we went to Lambayeque some of the Elders from down there called us and told us the internet was closed so we started thinking about what we were going to do and so we went around looking for some investigator or whoever that would have a camera and miraculously the first person we talked to had a camera and let us borrow it! So that was the first problem solved but then we had to go find an internet that would work with the camera and with the headphones and the microphone and we ended up walking around for like 2 hours trying to get it all to work but in the end it all turned out well and we got to talk with out families!
So yeah this week was awesome!! Something that was really cool is that on Friday w had our zone meeting and the subject of the meeting was Enduring to the End! We have been doing that for a few weeks now trying to find new investigators and finally this week we have started to see some of the fruits of our endurance!! This week felt good! I know that enduring to the end is one of the most important principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that enduring to the end will bring many blessings! Some blessing will come immediately and some a little bit later but some will not come until much later!! They will come though!!!!! Love you all!! Have a great week!!
