This week was a super busy week. We had people to teach almost all week, so that was great. I got to spend some time with a few other missionaries in the zone and it was awesome to get to know them a little bit more.
Hermana Fiorela has been progressing pretty well. In the beginning of last week she had a few doubts about the Book of Mormon and wasn't really super excited about reading it. We did get to visit her this last Friday, however, and we read 1 Nephi 1 with her and as we read we let her meditate a little bit about what we were reading. In the end of the lesson we asked her if she felt like what we had read was true. She told us that she thought it was true, so we invited her to keep reading and to pray so that she could KNOW it. We will see this week how it is going.
We also got to teach Hermano Franklin a little bit this week. When we are with him and teach him it seems like he is going to make the decision to go to church and live the gospel, but he hasn't been able to progress a whole lot. I'm definitely learning patience.
Yesterday was so awesome at church. I was kind of disappointed that our investigators didn't come to church, but when we were sitting in the sacrament meeting one less active sister showed up with her daughter that's not a member yet. We got to know them a little bit this past week and we invited them to church. We were pretty happy to see that they came. We also got to go teach them after church with a few members and they are pretty excited, so we are looking forward to helping them progress even more this week. The Lord is always preparing people that can and will progress.
This last Saturday I got to go back to Caraz to help them with their open house that they had in their casa capilla (they use an office building as their church for now) it was great to see the members there and be with the missionaries there for a little while. It seems like just yesterday I was serving there.
I am grateful for the mission and for all that I am learning. I know that our Heavenly Father always wants us to progress and learn. I know that this time in the mission is so important, and that the message of the restoration of the gospel is true.
