This week was super duper cool. We found 10 new investigators and 7 of them have baptismal dates for December! YOO HOO. ANd I also have some cool/funny stories my dudes.
First! The Himno of Peru. We were walking through a park and noticed a huge stage where they were having a concert. It was about to begin and this lady walks up to us and said "Would you 2 like to sing the Peruvian National Anthem on the stage with a group of other people?" "Señora we arent from Peru." "Thats okay, it will unite us as one community" "But we dont know the words." "Ill write them down for you!" "........yeah okay." So we sang the Peruvian National Anthem in front of like 500 people HAHAHA.
We find out transfers tonight and last time I was super nervous because I didnt want to leave Oquendo. This time I am more prepared. I feel like I have done a good job here. We baptized 3 great people in 3 months as a companionship. We helped start the Oquendo Ward, it used to be a family group, not even a branch. All we had to do was reactivate some less active members, it took work but we did it. I love these people, but I am also excited to meet new beautiful souls in Lima.
"Somos libres, seamos lo, siempre seamos lo, siempre!
Ante niegues sus luces, sus luces, sus luces el sol!
Que faltemos el voto solemne.
Que la patria al eterno elevo.
QUE FALTEMOS EL VOTO SOLEMNE!
QUE LA PATRIA AL ETERNO ELEVO!"
I dont think I will ever forget those words now hahaha.
Second! El Cerro (the hill). We were walking near a giant hill near in our area and we noticed that there were more people that lived there than we thought. So we went up to contact them. The first person, shut us down hard. SO did the second, and the third, and the fourth.....up until we were about to hike down the mount. We walked past this TINY house that was a little isolated from the others. There was a man sitting outside crying. We walked up to him and his Mom who was working in her plants to talk to them. This man is super bad when it comes to his health. He has a catheter and bags attached to his stomach because of lots of surgeries. What he said was so cool. "I was laying in my bed, writhing in pain, when I felt a STRONG impression to use all my efforts to go and sit outside, because someone was going to come and help me." He told us that we were the answer to his prayers and he accepted the baptismal date instantly.
And Third! ALWAYS MAKE SURE to eat fish in a restaurant you can trust. I got me some food poisoning friday and threw up in our recent converts garden:) delicious.
D&C 15! "The thing of most worth to you will be......".
GO AND READ IT HAHAHAHA
