What a week! We had lots of ups and downs. I am going to start with the downs.
Hermana Luz did not reach baptism. She told us the day before that she wanted to wait longer but I feel like she is sweetly telling us she will never get baptized. Which is SO SAD. Because I know for a fact she has read the Book of Mormon and felt the Spirit of truth. I really came to love her and I still do but I hate how the adversary is working so hard against her. Also this week, someone passed out at church and nobody realized because she was in a back room working on programs. We dont know how long she had been in there but Elder Vidal and I found her. She went to the hospital and we still dont know what is up or how she is doing. SCARY.
Okay, now the ups! I LOVE ELDER VIDAL. We are the same person except he was born in Chile and speaks much better Spanish. We work so well together and when we teach it is like we know what the other is going to say and the Spirit is so strong. Also, we cry laughing at at least 2 things daily. It is the best. Also we found a new family! The Chiroques. They are so humble and willing to learn and I can see their desire to make changes in their lives. I am excited to teach them more. Prayers for them please!
I was studying the words of King Benjamin this week in the Book of Mormon, chapters 2 and 3 of Mosiah always hit me. Serve others and put off the natural man. I encourage all to read these chapters and ask what you can do better to serve and be humble.
I miss and love you all and pray for you all every day!
(This 70s van was the highlight of my day today, If you know me you know I love 70s music and movies and especially cars from the 70s. Also Elder Vidal haha)
Extras from his letter to the fam:
Elder Sivley sends an audio recording every week and we love listening to it and hearing his voice... last week he sent us his daily schedule detailed out in his recording. His mission is one of the missions that has adjusted their wake up and bedtime routines and schedules to fit the culture of the locals. For them to get up early and be out of the house before 8 am would not benefit them at all because most Peruvians are not awake at that time. They also eat lunch later than normal and Dinner is when they return to their apartment at 10pm. He says that Sundays and holidays tend to be their busiest proselyting days because people are home and have family there and are usually willing to listen to their message. So those days are pretty busy. He loves the Peruvian people and is doing great with the language!
