It's been a crazy week with lots of ups and downs, but such is mission life! we are into HOT HOT days here. everyone tells us if we think this is bad we are in for a treat in October and November seriously we melt everyday and have some pretty nasty farmers tans. my comp looks in the mirror everyday and says ¨Ah I don't know what to do, everyday I am blacker and blacker!¨ hahah she's really concerned about it and sometimes leaves the house into the burning sun with jackets and tights to avoid getting ¨blacker´´ all I can do is laugh hahah.
This week we were eating lunch and the pensionista´s son left for school and took all the keys with him.. the doors lock from the inside here too hahah so we were locked inside and had some super important appointments to get to.. we had to break OUT of the house and jump from the window. hahah the pensionista was freaking out and I was dying laughing, something I don't think you would ever seen in America with normal doors.
Super cool experience this week! Saturday we were having a killer day.. every single appointment fell through and we were having no luck contacting or knocking doors. we passed by the church and I told my comp ¨lets go in and go to the bathroom and get out of the sun for a few minutes.¨ as we were locking up to leave a man came running up to us and said ¨sisters! I cant believe I found you!´´ we were a little bit scared hahah and just kinda stood there like ¨uh.. who are you?´ he told us that he is a member that has been inactive for more than 20 years and has been thinking lately about coming back to church. he said that he told himself he would drive by the church and if he found someone to help him that would be his answer that he needs to get back. He came to church for the first time in 20 years yesterday and is more than prepared to reactivate! Its so awesome to see the miracles that happen everyday and the way that Heavenly Father works through us!
I love this work and these people and couldn't be happier to be here! have the best week! :)
