We are teaching a family that are really special, they are going to get baptized on the 21st of February, but this last week we found a little problem. The mom likes to think A LOT and talks A LOT during the lessons. The majority of the lesson is her talking and we just say a few sentences. But we went to go visit her and we started to talk about the sacrament and she started to express her concern about the Catholic Church. She explained that her daughter was still preparing to be baptized in the Catholic Church and that she knows that the church is true and everything but she doesn't know how to let go of the Catholic Church. We listened to her for an hour and a half and in the end she said she knows the church is true. It was an interesting lesson. We are visiting her and helping her with her anxiety, but we know that we are going to see miracles with this family. :)
We are visiting another family that is amazing, I seriously love this family. A lot of missionaries have visited this family. The whole family are members and the son just barely got baptized in November, except for the dad. He got sick a couple weeks back and he prayed and made a promise with God that if He would cure him from his diabetes he would get baptized in the church. At that moment the missionaries weren't visiting him. They had dropped him as an investigator about 5 months ago. But when we came to this area we started to visit him. His diabetes is gone and he told us he wanted to get baptized. It has seriously been a miracle. He is so sweet and he is accepting everything we say and reading and praying and attending church. He is going to get baptized on the 21st as well.
There is another family that we are teaching that we could not find for the life of us this last week because when the other sisters left they didn't leave an address to the house. We just knew that these people existed, but we didn't know where they lived. So we searched and searched and asked everyone that we knew and we finally found them this last week. We found the wife and we taught her a little bit and they came to church this last week. The husband is in a wheelchair and they have two kids. When we were in a class on Sunday, the husband raised his hand and wanted to bear his testimony. He started to tell us that he is a member and that he got baptized 20 years ago and that he wanted to return to church. He wanted his wife to get baptized. It was amazing! He started to cry. This next week we have plans to visit them and assist them in getting married. AHHH!!! It has been so incredible.
Another cool thing that happened this last week when we were doing service with a sister on Wednesday. We helped her cook and we watched her kill a chicken....it was terrible......but while we were helping her we got a phone call of a reference. So this day we went to go visit this reference. We were searching and searching and finally we saw a man waving his arms at the end of the street. We went over and we found a North American, another man, and a woman. The North American is from Las Vegas and is a member. He sponsors people in Peru to go to school and study. He has been to Iquitos 17 times. He started to talk with me. He doesn't know anything of Spanish. He travels with this guy and he translates for him. They are super funny and super sweet. The North American gave us a ton of presents and talked with us. He loved to bear his testimony. They are awesome.
This week was full of excitement and we are super excited for another one :)
I hope everyone has a great week :) I love you all :)
