SO! One and all! We have had another joyous week!
So, just so you all know: THANKS FOR THE PACKAGE!!!
I did take photos! I did eat candy! I did sketch much! So, although
it feels as if Christmas morn has come a bit early, I am just peached to
know that all went well! And for that matter, I TOO am sending a
letter full of hand-paintings for you guys, kind of like the one last
year, so that should be there in about a month or less.
Ok, so news of the week! Well, I think I`ll just skip to Sunday! For it seems that is where all the good stuff happened.
in the morning, we passed by Gisela , the one who 3 weeks ago
was baptized, yet never confirmed. We arrived, and found her outside,
in pajamas and sandals, and she expressed to us how once again (fourth
time!) she could not attend church, and her much-needed confirmation
would have to wait another week. So, feeling that I would not leave
there without her, I explained how every week `things` would get in the
way to not let her attend church, that the adversary was doing all in
his power so that she could not get confirmed, and that would keep
happening each week until she took a step of faith/sacrifice to attend.
But, we did leave without her, heavy-hearted. BUT- about 20 minutes
into sacrament meeting, my companion burst in surprise, and motioned for
me to look back, and there! In neat clothing, hair washed, was her!
We were astounded! So, she was confirmed, and THEN! (yeah, there`s
more!) she went up to bear her testimony, odd because she`s REALLY shy,
and literally sobbing said she was thankful for the help of the
members, and the missionaries (Super Feel-Goods) and shared how the
gospel had helped her marriage.
So, that was probably the best part of the week, not to mention that Sunday we also had SEVEN investigators attend! Which is lovely because
normally only 1 or 2 attend each week, so... I think I can safely say
that your fasting for our investigators truly worked wonders! THANK-YOU
on their behalf...
And I did get to go the Christmas devotional, and it was mighty! We
got to make a `gringo` room for the english speakers, and after we sung
some carols in Spanish! So it was very nice...
Hm. It seems I`m short on time! So, until next week to all! I have places to go and people to convert!
PHOTOS: Well, it seems
we`ve done a lot of cooking this week! A man-sized Hash brown/Keish pie
and me making some Patacones, which are rather like thick, mighty
banana chips. Also, 2 views from our house: the front with a cobble
stone city street, and the back: some trees, a cathedral, and in the
back: A Volcano! Ha ha! Until next time!
