This week was pretty great / kinda bad. Last monday night we had a
Family Night with the bishop and his family and it was awesome!! We made
tacos and guacamole!!! SOO GOOOD!! I miss guac and chips so much...
moving on, this wee was a lot better with finding new investigators, but
no one accepted a baptismal date, so that was a little bit of a bummer.
But we had some really good lessons with investigators progressing. It
makes me feel a lot better when we have investigators that read and like
the church and want to learn more.
One really great thing that happened
this week was when I gave my talk last week I told everyone that my
favorite juices are Maracuya and Lulo, so almost every lunch we had with
members we had one of those juices!!
Also I told this member that my
birthday was April 5th, but then she got upset with me and said that she
would´ve bought a cake for me, then we stopped by her house later in
the week and she got me a cake!! People love me here!
This week nothing
really big happened, but yesterday was absolutely nuts. After church we
went to lunch and the family made us a huge plate of arroz con coco,
french fries, and chicken nuggets, but the chicken nuggets were a little
funky so after we ate we went back to the house to rest, but after I
got up, I threw up. Then we called the office, they told me to drink
Gatorade, so I drank some Gatorade, laid down, then threw up again. Then
once again slept.
But we had to go give a blessing to the sister of the
Relief Society president so we went to her house at about 8. Basically
that was one of the freakiest experiences of my life because turned out
that there was a bad spirit in her. So long story short, priesthood
power is real, we cast out spirits, and I didn´t sleep very well last
night. Again, kinda freaky, yesterday we kinda did an exorcism / cast out an evil spirit from a lady and I don´t really want to take all the time to write what happened so here´s a video, hopefully you can download it and watch it.
Ya, that´s kinda it for this week. I think saturday we´ll have 3
interviews for baptisms because we have 3 baptisms scheduled for May
Well that´s it! Love you all! Abrazos y besos!
