This last week was a really busy week. It was kind of tough because we weren't able to teach a lot of our investigators that had been progressing, but we were able to meet a lot of new people this week. The work of the Lord is never frustrated.
Last Monday one member family invited us to their family home evening and they invited one of their friends, so that was super awesome. Their friend´s name is Hermana Fiorela. She has been progressing a little bit this week, and has started to read the Book of Mormon. It is such a blessing to have good members who are willing to help us.
This week we actually found a family with the help of a dog. It was pretty interesting. We were walking in the street in the night and a big rottweiler came up to me, and I wasn't sure if it was super nice or if it wanted to chase me off. I stopped to make sure the dog was not going to do anything to me, then a lady told me from her doorstep that the dog is really nice and that it just wants to play. We went over to talk to the lady, and we talked a little bit about her dog. Then we got to know her a little bit and the next day we got to go visit her and her family. It turns out that her mother in law lost her mom about a month ago and her ten year old daughter lost her friend this past week. The Lord puts us right where we need to be to help people know his plan.
This week we also found another new family. They had never talked with the missionaries before, but the daughter has a friend who is a member, and he has been a great example to them. The mom told us that she was very impressed with this young man, and they were really willing to learn from us. This week we are going to have a family home evening with them. I am very grateful that that young man has been a good example.
This week we had the visit of President Rios, Sister Rios, and the assistants here in Huaraz. They taught us a lot of great things and we had interviews with them as well. Of my favorite things that I learned from President Rios was that repenting is depending on Christ. When we depend on Christ we repent. My interviews with President and Sister Rios were great as well. They always are making sure that we are doing well and help us to progress spiritually.
I'm grateful for the many blessings that I have been given. I know that The Gospel blesses families and that through the principles and ordinances we can find peace and happiness in this life and receive eternal life.
