Las Brisas - Week 11

Our pensionista's doggie - we are doggie sitting!
October 26, 2015

Well this week was a blur, and also the space bar on this computer is super crazy so sorry if I am lacking spaces in this post!

So I'll explain about the borrachos, beans, birthdays and blessings that happened this week. 

SO first, los borrachos. The Drunks. SO like weeks ago we were teaching someone in the street (Nilo- where he works) and some borracho came up and started jabbering away. Yeah well It was the same guy again. So one night we were outside someones house waiting for them and this guy crossed the street to talk to us. He started asking us where we lived before this life and we told him that we lived with Heavenly Father and then he asked some other question and started telling us that we were pretty but we need to learn what we are saying and teaching. We tried to end the conversation but he just kept going and going and then he started pointing down the street saying "that's where I live, you need to come visit me" But then he said "But not for me, you need to visit my son. He needs to get married, you need to marry him" WHHAAT. SO then I was like No thanks I'm good. He kept saying "He needs to get married, I want grandkids..." Oh no... SO then we referred him and his son to the the church and practically ran away! Dang Borrachos. 

Our chili dawgs!
Here beans aren't super common so people get pretty excited when there are beans for a meal. SO we went over to a members house saturday to cook for them, but they wanted to eat american food. Really we don't have special food in the US, its pretty much all from other countries. But we thought about it and we decided to make chili cheese dogs! And we made them with frĂ©joles! We made the chili and cut up some almost cheese (real yummy cheese here is hard to find and kinda expensive) The members, Bryan and Sisi, were super excited about the chili with beans! Hahaha but it was all good and yummy! 

This week Hermana Correa had her 23rd birthday. Birthdays here are a little different, and a little messy. So after we sing the birthday person takes a bite out of the whole cake, but normally what happens is when they are about to bite the cake someone just shoves their face in it. Also if it is your birthday you can expect to have eggs smashed on your head and if you are lucky you get a bag of flour to top it all off! Hermana Correa was lucky. But birthdays are fun!

And blessings. We have so many blessings in our lives that we don't even realize. And there are so many blessings that our Heavenly  Father has in store for us, all we really need to do it ask with faith and then act on our faith doing the things that have been asked of us from our Heavenly Father. Here in the mission I have seen so many blessings in my life and in the lives of others. Sometimes we thing that it is hard to act, to keep the commandments and do the things that we should. But really its simple have faith and act on your faith. If we have fear recognize it and replace it with faith. If we have fear we don't have faith, if we have faith we don't have fear. This week we had so many blessings. We found 4 new investigators who are open to hearing this gospel and we have been able to work with more and more people. Faith and action are the keys that everyone possesses to open the doors of heaven to receive every blessing the God has in store for us. 

Besos y Abrazos!!

With Love from Lima,
