This week was good, we found a couple of new people that seem like they are really interested. One lady was walking past us in the street with her aunt and her aunt comes up to us and tells us that she got baptized a month ago. So we started talking to her niece and she was really excited and wants us to come to her house and teach her so hopefully that goes well. We have an appointment later on in the week.
Then this one day we were walking in the street and there were these ladies pushing a cart with a bunch of chairs and struggling so I went and asked if they needed help and they said yes so we took there cart really far for them and it was really hot. But they have family members that are members of the church and the one lady told us that we can come back and visit her in her house. Everytime we passed by she wasn't home but one day we found her husband at home. And he is funny. And he started talking to us and told us how he changed his life and how he is open to listening to us. So that was cool. And we play soccer every Thursday and he is going to come and play soccer with us. So hopefully that family can progress and we can help them.
Then one more person. Her name is Alexandra and she is 22 and has a little baby. She has a fecha in January to be baptized and so she came to church this week and she said that she really liked it a lot. She was going to leave after sacrament and go home because she said that her baby has to eat because she has a schedule so she was leaving and we were kind of like noooo because to count as an asistencia you have to stay all three hours. So I kind of looked at the relief society president and she ran over and was like I can take care of your baby!! And bam that was that and she stayed at church and said that she really liked it a lot. It was awesome. And the ward is going to the temple on Tuesday and she might come with us so that would be super awesome.
Perú has Christmas trees in their house. Some of the people at least. But everyone has a little display of the manger and the birth of Jesus. Well at least all the people we visit. But all the little cribs in the manger are empty right now. No baby. On Christmas eve when it turns Christmas, they all put the baby in the manger because "that is when he was born." So that is pretty cool.
On Christmas here I guess Santa doesn't know when you are awake. Everyone here stays up and parties and at midnight they drink hot chocolate and eat food and everything. I think they eat turkey for Christmas so hey, I might get my Thanksgiving turkey.
Haha, that is my report for this week. We have our christmas party this week with the mission. Well, half of the mission. We have too many people to have everyone there at one time so there are two days. But Elder Bean and I have it the same day so we get to ball together. I am going to dunk on somebody.
Love you all, choose the right.
Love, Elder Baker
