First things first, changes are tomorrow. We usually find out what the changes are on Sunday night, but something had happened in the mission home, so now the changes that we do know of aren´t sure, and there might be some more changes that we haven´t heard of. The thing is, Elder Calero, who has 4 changes here and 2 with me, hasn´t been told he is leaving yet. With almost every missionary, two changes is max with one companion, and having more than four changes is really rare. But as of now, we haven´t been told he is leaving yet. So we´ll see how that goes! Either way, I´m fine with what happens. (Although I´d like a change. Three months with someone 24/7 is a TON for any person...) But we´ll see what God has to say!
But yeah, I´ve got to tell you about this family. We had found them a while back, like a month ago. But they weren´t progressing much, so we went to one last cita with them to see if we should continue with them or not. So we went this Tuesday, and just out of nowhere, they told us that they had plans to go to church with us last Sunday. But they didn´t end up coming, because it was late. But we were super stoked that they wanted to come, so we talked about how going to church can help anyone feel the Spirit. So we made sure they were coming to church. The thing is, Antonio (The dad) got called on Saturday and was told that he had to come in to work on Sunday. So long story short, they weren´t able to come. But we talked to them, and they are already making plans to come next week! So we are looking really good with them.
German is coming along nicely. We´ve found out a couple of his doubts, and we are working on getting them cleared up. The thing is, it´s really hard for him to come to church with us, because he is only working here, and lives on the coast. But we are working so that he can go through with his fecha on the 23rd of November!
This week, I´ve really been able to tell when I have the Spirit with me and when I don´t. The thing is, being a missionary absolutely sucks when you don´t have the Spirit. But when you do, WOW, it is absolutely amazing! There really is no way to explain it. But I´ve really been trying to have the Spirit with me always, because there is no other option. And when we have the spirit, everything just goes better.
Not much else for this week. I guess we´ll see how things go with changes tonight! But whatever happens, I´m stoked to work more here in Chiquilajá! Until next time!
