Lots of intercambios


So, this week I worked with several diferent missionaries and learned a lot.  On Wednesday I worked with Elder C from Colombia.  Even though it rained hard and the wind wrecked my umbrella haha we worked hard and had a great day.  Later in the week I worked with Elder R, also great.  We went to a bunch of meetings and stuff and had some of the best empanadas Ive ever eaten! And on Saturday, Elder S, who lives with us got sick, so I went to work with his companion in his sector while he rested at home with my comp.  We worked all day between his sector and mine, and at the end of the day when Elder S was feeling better, I worked with him for a few minutes at the end of the night.

So, cool story.  I started working in my sector with Elder S at about 9:00, and we have to go home at 9:30, so we didn't think we would be able to accomplish too much.  We decided to go visit a woman we had contacted a few weeks ago.  We knocked on the door, she told us she was busy and to come back on Wednesday.  We left and started walking down the street.  We were about a block away about five minutes later when a guy comes out of the womans house and starts waving at us and yelling "come here!"  We returned and the ladys husband let us in and let us share something with their family.   We shared a short video and left them with a prayer.
Turns out that they are a super cool family! They just moved in, their son studied in an LDS school in Santiago, and they don't belong to any specific church.  It was a cool experience to find them and it surprised us that someone actually felt the need to call us back and let us in.

Yesterday, we had a lesson with a young man named J.  We read the Book of Mormon with him and shared our testimonies.  After reading 1 Nephi 2, he said, Hey, there's something that I need to tell you.  He said that after our first visit, he went to bed.  He said he woke up in the middle of the night with the thought in his head, Its true! Its true! Its true! What the Mormons say is true!
We challenged him to baptism and his accepted.  Pray for J!

Anyway, it was a fun week and were looking forward to the next.

Take advantage of every opportunity you have to serve God or to serve your fellowman.  Such opportunities are blessing.
