For the first time in a about a month, the SUN came out here in Lima! They sky is blue, the sun is shining, and I am HAPPY :)
This week was wonderful, we were able to find 8 new investigators (BLESSING), and have been able to see the Lord's hand in every aspect of this work.
Yesterday, we had 21 people in church that were there because we were able to invite them! Investigators.... Less actives... recent converts... rescues.... it made my heart so happy to look around and see so many people being able to partake of the Sacrament, feel the Spirit, and have their own spiritual experiences.
Sorry that things are gonna be a little short today. This day is just so beautiful outside, it is hard for me to be crammed into a little internet shack for very long :)
Fun story from this week:
A bunch of members were asking me what kind of food we eat in the United States. They wanted to know that kind of food was ONLY in the United States..... I could not think of a single thing that is actually ours that we didn't steal from another country. The only thing that came to my mind was..... Casserole.
Imagine trying to explain what a casserole is to someone who has never heard of such a thing.... "Well, ya know... you just kind of stick in everything you have... it really can be anything - meat, vegtables, eggs, milk, cheese, whatever you want - and then you bake it, like you bake a cake… and then… you have a casserole."
They had a lot of doubts and questions, but in the end, everyone thought it was a pretty novel idea :)
Thank you so much for all your support and love!
You are all blessings in my life.
The Church is true!!!!
