Week 23 - Caraz

Here is Elder Miller's weekly update.

This week was a great week! The rain is finally here and I am welcoming it with open arms! I'm ready for a little break from the heat. It is so cool to see the clouds every morning because they are always so low and blanketing the mountains. Its pretty awesome. 
The work went well this week. We got to give a few blessings of healing this week which i always love doing. Holding the priesthood is such a privilege. One of the ladies we gave a blessing to is an investigator in the area of the sister missionaries and she works in a little store with fertilizer and animal products so it was really cool to talk to her about that stuff for a little while. This week we also had the opportunity to help a family who is members. They are passing through a little bit of a rough patch but it is so cool to see how strong their faith is. We were talking with the dad and wow we learned what a strong, but humble man he is. His sons had a youth activity this weekend at the beach with the stake and he wasn't going to let them go as a punishment, but my companion and I talked to him about how these experiences helped  us to have more friends in the church and to strengthen our testimonies. In the end of our conversation he called his sons down and handed them the list and told them to go pack.
We also have been working with a family of investigators this month and the mom and daughter love the church. They have been attending on Sunday and at our activity night. The dad is a little bit more difficult but we are working with him. He is super funny. He only has one hand(the other one got chopped off a few years ago). One day we asked him how he was doing and he said aahhhh more or less so we asked him why and he told us ¨my hand¨ hahahaha it was so funny. he is always joking.
I have also gained so much respect for our bishop. His calling is hard because we are basically in the process of establishing the church so like in the beginning with the church during the restoration it is not something easy. He is so powerful and faithful. I really admire him. 
It was a great week!
