July 2018 - July 2020
How's it going back our there across the world? It's hot as balls here like always but what can you do? Sometime I think I'm getting used to it but then I walk outside and I'm completely wet in the space of 3 minutes. hahaha Just part of the experience though! I'm just glad I'm in the offices right now because we have the freshest air there is--AC.
This week was pretty dang awesome for the work in our area. You know a little while ago when I was talking about the group of teenage girls that we were teaching? Well it was quite the story for them this week. First off we had left them for like 2 weeks because they didn't have any permiso to go to church and there wasn't anything that we could do for them. Last Sunday we just had this feeling that we should go to their house and visit them even though we really didn't want to. So we went on Tuesday and found them just chillin outside and then two of them said that they had really missed us the last couple weeks and that they wanted us to start coming again. We were like ah dope they really want us to come! Then we remembered we didn't have permiso. BUT. Then we just thought, "Are we boys or are we men?!" and we went straight up to their dad and asked for permission and he said YES! Super dope and the girls were way pumped. Then the next day we went with them and they were acting super weird. So we were like what the heck do we do now? So we went to their cousins (who we were also teaching but didn't have permiso) and asked what was up and it was super weird. We were talking to them and were like ok well do you all want to go to church with us this week? They said that they couldn't because their mom was sick, so we looked in the house and sure enough she looked dead on the couch. BUT. We used our secret power (aka the priesthood) and gave her a blessing and then after she gave them all permission and she wants them to go to church with us this Sunday!!! So it was a pretty dang cool experience with them I have to say.
Honestly this next week is going to be the busiest week ever. hahaha It's week one of the cambio so we have the new people coming in and the oldies going out and it just gets soooo freaking hectic. We're hoping to have some success either way! Hoping it's a fun week though. Sorry that's all I've got but I've got a haul out.
Love you all and hope you have a fun week!!!!
