This past week was Peruvian Independence Day and here they celebrate it for 2 days - the 28th and 29th. So It was kind of a long week. Everyone went out of town the past weekend and so they weren't there until Thursday then the ward went to the temple on Friday so then there wasn't any body that day either. So some parts of the week were kind of slow. But other parts were really good.
First of all, Thursday Fran had an interview and he passed it to get the priesthood... So he has one week and a half of a member and he got the Aaronic Priesthood. So that was really cool! We are planning on trying to go to the temple with him on Friday but we will see what happens.
Next, ____, the investigator had an interview with the mission president on Sunday so he could be baptized. We were waiting in the offices and they came out and he had such a big smile on his face. He was so happy and it was incredible to see! Seriously he came out and he was completely 100 percent happy. He is so ready. We are going to have his baptism this weekend! We can't visit him as much because he started a work schedule where he is working Monday through Saturday from 6 in the morning until 10 at night. But he has sundays free so that is important. He is really excited and we are too and this week will end in a good way!
After that we had two sisters that were a reference of members. Anyway, we were teaching them and thought that all was going well, they work in our sector and had gone to church in our ward. We were teaching and they were really interested. But then we found out that they don't live in our sector.... It was such a bummer. Because they accepted a baptismal date for this Sunday. So we have to pass the reference to the elders in their area. it is right next to ours so we will still be able to see them get baptized. At first I was really sad that we were going to pass the references and not have the baptisms but then thinking about it I know that God is a God of order. And his church is a church of order. Everthing and everyone has their place and we need to obey. So thinking more about that it made it a little less of a bummer to pass the references on. But ya, that is about it, tonight we are going to meet with them one more time to get all their information and pass it on.
That is about it for this week. So have fun, be safe, choose the right. I love you all!
