Las Brisas - Week 20

December 28, 2015


Haha yesterday we found one of the members walking in the street and he saw us and he shouted "HEY MY WHITE PEOPLE!" haha hes a funny one.

Well this week was christmas! It was great to talk to my family adn to spend christmas with my Peruvian family! CHristmas eve our pensionista took us out to get lunch at a nice restaurant. They are the sweetest. And then afterwards we had a bad of little goodie bags that we went and passed out to all the children in the street. Its like a tradition here to give to the people who really need it on christmas eve. Its really sweet- and an eye opener. 

Then christmas eve night we had permision to be out until 12:20 in a members home and we had so much fun. Its a tradition here to eat a big dinner christmas eve night at 11 and then thees a countdown- like new years eve- till christmas day at 12! Then at 12 everyone in Peru lights off all their fireworks and the sky looks like it is on fire! SO coool! We had so much fun! 

But this week was a little hard to visit people cause everyone was busy adn didnt have any time. ANd here you have to go throught a gate and then like 2 more doors to get into peoples houses. ANd they have stupid little buzzer intercom things so it just makes it more easy to tell us no! But thats ok, I know this church is true and there are people waiting to hear this gospel and every "no" is just one step closet to a "yes"!

I love you all so much and thanks for all the christmas wishes!
WIth love from Lima
