Week 98 - Chimbote

July 17, 2017

The weeks keep flying by here in the mission. This past week was another great one. We stayed busy almost all week teaching and finding which was a great blessing.
Last monday we decided to put into practice plan cookies. A couple of weeks ago we dicided that we needed to gain the confidence of the members here a little bit more, so we asked one of our companions for a chocolate chip cookie recipe. We made cookies in our penionista´s house, and they actually didnt turn out too bad considering we are pretty much rookies when it comes to making food. The members liked them and I think our plan worked. I have included a picture of our cookies.
We got to know a new family this week and we had a great experience with them. We had invited them to read the pamphlet about the restoration. They did it and when we got to their house they had a few questions about it. The dad had an awesome question. He asked us if there is a prophet in the world today or if there wasn´t any more prophets after the church was restored. We answered his question and he and his wife were pretty happy as we finished the lesson. It is so awesome when the people understand this message.
We also have been teaching an older man that is very willing to learn and has been coming to church for about a month now. We got to watch a little video about the restoration with him yesterday. He doesn´t know how to read, but he wants to have his kids read the Book of Mormon to him so he can know if it is true. I am grateful for the chance to help him and I know that the Lord always provides the means so that we can understand his teachings if we look with real intent.
This past week, on saturday, we had the church open house acivity in our church building which was a great time. a lot of the members brought their friends and family to the activity. The members can be such great instruments in this work. It is always a blessing getting to work with them.
I know that the Church is true. I am grateful that the Church has been restored and that there is a prophet and twelve apostles in the world today.
