:) March 2, 2015
To answer the family dilemma, the answer is no. My new snappy fresh camera... is lost in outer darkness. But it's cool. Because I have a friend Elder Kramer here on the mission that, even though is the stingiest yet richest missionary I know, might actually sell me his before he leaves next week.
Well, this week has sort of been the downhill week for the zone. Well downhill, and uphill. We didn't meet the zone goal of February, but that's ok because all my hard work and sowing in the zone will come out in March. :D I already knew we wouldn't meet the goal in February, but now in this month we have no excuses to not bautizar DURASO! We're entering with 12 solid fechas, and apart from that at least 4 families that are just waiting for documents to get married this month. Pray for us! I look forward to Dad inviting us all to pizza this month. ;)
Investigator-wise, (cause I know you're all still waiting and dying to know) right now we have 3 solid. We have have like 4 families in our own area that go to church, but are just waiting for paperwork so they can get married, but that will still take at least month or 2. :P Our fecha, Tania, is awesome! Besides the fact that her mom totally kicked us out of her house and never wants to see us again, Tania has a testimony that it's true, and even wants to go on a mission!!! She'll be dunked this 14th de March. Oscar is kind of one of those cholitos who live high in the hill that don't really understand things like religion or modern technology. But he came to church! hahaaa so I guess that's good enough for this 21 de March. He actually reads the Book of Mormon and will normally read a chapter 4 times through till he finally understands. But he knows it's true :) Just wish his wife would stop working so she could learn too. Last, John Fernandez is probably my favorite. Hes a simple guy, 27 years old and works in a sewing house factory business thing. (Most people in Peru work in sewing house factory business things). His whole family is evangelist and also Jehovah Witness, so there's actually A LOT of opposition. Nonetheless he told us we're the only ones that have actually convinced him to really follow Christ and keep the commandments, so he should be getting married this 27th :) He reads the Book of Mormon a lot, and honestly has a testimony of the Restoration. BACAN!
This week, my convert Freddy got his MISSION CALL! AHJHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAEHJ
I'M SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!! Guess where! Las Vegas Nevada Mission!!
Nah jk, he's going to Pueblo Norte, Mexico!!!! Aso macho lo maximo!!! I
shed just one tear when he read it off :,) The Lord´s work is such a
beautiful thing. To think my own convert changed his whole life and
beliefs, and is now going to leave everything he has to serve some small
pueblo in Mexico and eat burritos. Even though his parents aren't
members, hes doin' it!!! Sighhh.. so proud :,)
Wow. Well I've talked a lot haha. Ill send pics next week. But today we're going to another MISION PERU LIMA NORTE COPA MUNDIAL!!!!!!!!!!!! Tune in next week for results ;)
