Las Jardines - Week 9

March 28, 2016

So what exactly happened this week? 
Its all a blurr, we worked hard and we preached the Restored Gospel of Jesucristo!

This week was Semana Santa and everyone here loves Semana Santa (Holy Week? Im not really sure if we say that in english..). The Catholic people all climb the hill Cerro San Cristobal, im not really sure why but thats what they do! Also there are people who dress up like Jesus and the Santos and walk around the streets with giant crosses with a hoard of people following them and everyonce in a while they stop adn recite their prayers and sing. Also everyone eats fish. 

As misioneras we celebrate Semana Santa a liiiitle bit differently. We share the message that Cristo came to this earth. He taught the people, loved the people, and served the people. Jesucristo atoned for our sins and died for us, so that we may become wloe in Cristo. But we also share the message that He lives! He ressurected, and because He lives we will live again too. "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive." (1 cor 15:22

Also we walk alot- just not up the hills. 

This week we have found some really cool people that are really interested in our message- we just gotta get em to church, thats the tricky part.... 

But this weekend is General Conference! WOOHOOO! And we already have a ton of poeple lined us ready to listed to the words of the profet and the other leaders of the church!

Yeah so the church is super true, but not only is it true but it is the only true church and the only church that has the authority of God here on the earth. How cool is that! Its great. I love it. The mish is rockin and im here in Lima livin it up like no other!
