We had changes this week. Of course i'm still here training. A lot happened this week that I am excited to share! Last pday we made tacos as a zone and watched a movie. That is all we ever do because there is nothing in Moquegua. I couldn't even eat the tacos, so it was sad haha. It has been incredibly hot here this week, my hair is a whole shade blonder from the sun, for reals. It's a blessing but its hot haha.
On friday the whole entire mission went to Arequipa to hear the presiding bishop (bishop stevenson) it was a really cool experience. We had to travel 10 hours in one day but it was worth it! It's amazing having these opportunities to hear these amazing men. I couldn't believe how small our mission is. There is not alot of us haha. He talked about 2 nephi 2. It was really interesting. We talked about how obedience brings blessings and blessings bring happiness. We all know this. But why is it so hard for us to do it? Satan wants us to think that disobedience brings happiness, sleeping in brings us happiness, listening to music brings us happiness? no, but thats what satan wants us to think. We know that with more obedience brings more blessings and more blessing bring more happiness. As missionaries we have more rules than ever, which means we have more of a chance to be more obedient and more of a chance to have more blessings and be more happy! I loved that. We even have the chance to be the happiest people in the world haha. There was a lot of things that he shared that i loved.
On saturday night our stake had a dance off with a bunch of different types of dances from Peru. It was really beautiful. i LOVE watching the dances here and being imersed in their culture. It's amazing.
We havent had a baptism in our ward here for a while and this week we put a date with Julio, an investigator that we have been teaching for a while. So I want to ask you all to pray for him that he can get baptized. He's super prepared but just a little scared so just keep him in your prayers:)
I'll share a quick funny story that happened this week. We were walking to our pensionistas house the other morning for breakfast, on her street there are ALOT of bars. There not even really Bars just houses where people go to drink and they don't just get drunk they get completely wasted. It's really ugly. Peruanos like to drink, a lot. So there was this really drunk huge peruvian women in the street and she started to follow us to the house and was saying some really ugly stuff but we were just ignoring her because it happens all the time. So we knocked on the door of our pension and were just waiting for her to open it but she was taking along time and the fat women was just getting even more angry with us. So right when my pensionista opened her door the fat peruvian women punched me straight in the back of my head, so we all ran into the house and started laughing our heads off, it all happened so fast. Good memories haha.
Also, my comp has this really strange accent that i couldn't understand for like a week, she doesnt say her S's. its super weird but i've picked up on her accent and now poeple make fun of my spanish....haha its weird how many different accents there are in spanish.
Anways, I wanted to close with this scripture that I loved this week. Thanks for everything LOVE YOU ALL!!!
