This week I helped make ñioquis for a lunch. Always reminds me of you mom!
Word of the day is Balde. It means bucket. Why? Because we used buckets of warm water to shower ourselves for 2 days! I’m totally willing to have the experience!
We have moved from the pension (apartment) of 2 other elders now to our actual area of Baigorria! We now won’t lose time with the trek from area to area. But a lot of time this week was used with fixing all the problems our new pension has had. It´s pretty small but new, and does the job. A missionary doesn´t need a mansion! But the toilet was always filling with hot water and the shower only had cold water. So we bathed 2 days with buckets until the handymen came to fix things. Just some of the many problems with the pension but I won´t bore you with the rest. The good thing is now we are basically settled in and have a great shower! Not a hanging, heating bucket of water like my last area but a shower…a little gift from the Lord. That´s all we need! So now we can focus more on the work!
Fernanda: We have a very good investigator named Fernanda Formaggio. Fernanda lives with a member who has recently shown great focus on returning back to the church. Her “mate” and member, Ariel, used to be a bishop but then fell away. Very sad to hear things like that. But he´s a boss and REALLY is showing a genuine heart of repentance help Fernanda and their 2 little girls enjoy the blessings of the gospel. We had a great lesson with her this week on praying to receive a personal witness of the prophet Joseph Smith. They´ve come all together as a family to church recentely 3 times. They warned us ahead of time that they couldn’t come to church this week. So they are off the hook but just this once! :)
And some hombres working on our pension.
José Luis: We had 2 lessons with our investigator José Luis. Great lessons about the gospel in general and receiving a personal witness as well. He’s together with a less-active woman and they have one small daughter. During the last lesson the toddler stuck a piece of wrapper in her mouth and choked on it for a while until she finally puked it up! A little entertainment break…she’s fine! But they said they would come to church the night before but then didn´t show. We called them but didn´t answer. They sent us a text later telling us that some things happened. Some things will ALWAYS happen! Just come to church! This is the dilemma, right RMs!
I love you all! Read the scriptures everyday! Invite others to do the same! I love you!
