Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
It was a freaking busy week here in Villa because we had all of the new people come in, the oldies go out and then we had the leadership consejo! So needless to say we weren't able to work that much in our area but we had a good time! On Monday we went to the house of Presidente Haws to eat dinner with all of the people and it was insane honestly. They have a nice Yamaha piano too and Hermana Haws made me play for everyone while they were getting stuff ready lol They all thought it was dope. I felt so sick hahaha. Man it's such a burden being me...playing piano, eating good food and brownies and ice cream!hahaha It was soooo weird to send off all the people this week because I went to the airport to pay for all of their stuff and everything and it was like holy balls what's happening hahaha. It was a super cool experience though!
This week we found a family of like 6 or 7 and the first question that the mom asked us was "I just don't understand why there are so many religions here, how did religion even get here to this part of the world anyway?" and Rasmussen and I were like, oh boy do we have some answers for you hahaha. So hoping we can get them baptized soon but we just need to get them to church! That was probably the most straight up "I need the gospel" question that I have heard in my entire mission. hahaha She was just asking for the Book of Mormon and we were hyped!!! Another thing was just before that this random guy contacted us and said that he needs a god and wants us to come teach him hahah. Then when we were on the way back to the house right after that this random guy gave us free churros from his puesto! When we have days that just everything goes right that's what we call "the zone" and we have entered into the zone everyday this week. Esas son las bendiciones de obediencia hahaha!
Today for p day we went and played soccer with a bunch of beans in the deportiva and I got pounded again hahaha! I suck so bad so they just stick me in as portero cause my arms are so freaking long! It's always nice to play though because we sit here in the offices so much during the week. There are a bunch of cool guys in there though so it's always fun. Always good to have some people to mess around with am I right? Well, I love you all and hope you have a week full of joy!
