Happy Monday! And Happy 4th of July tomorrow! I am thankful for America and all the great things there. Also thankful for Peru and all the great things here, including everything that happened this past week:
This week so many people came to church and it was the greatest. Usually Sunday isn’t a day of rest, it’s a day of judgement to see if any of the people we teach will show up at church, but this Sunday was so good. I’m so excited! For real, you can’t know how true the church is if you never go, so it was great that our investigators were there.
We still have to sleep in Rimac every night and now the bus drivers recognize us so that’s fun. One of the bus drivers wrote his phone number on my bus ticket and I passed it on as a reference so the missionaries can visit him.
While contacting this week, someone said, “Oh, my grandma was Mormon, but she passed away a couple years ago…” I didn’t fully understand so I responded with something along the lines of, “Oh that’s great!” I didn’t realize until we walked away. My companion was cracking up. Oh well.
Favorite scripture this week: Alma 36:24. I love Alma’s enthusiasm for missionary work! Its so great to be here in Peru, teaching people the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so just like Alma they can be born again of God and be filled with the Holy Ghost. Love it.
