Week 95

WHATS UP PEOPLE! this week was not too shabby! we had some really interesting experiences haha
So first interesting thing to mention, Tuesday we went over to see that Yorjanis guy i talked about last week and we knocked on his door and he let us in, we sat down at the table and as soon as we sat down he said, hey can yall come with me real quick? i need to pick up a buddy and i asked him how long it would take and he said oh dont worry itll be real quick just come with me haha so after driving about a half hour out of our area i began to worry haha but it turned out okay we basically just talked with him and got to know him more and after he picked up his buddy he asked hey can you guys show me where the church is? so we said sure haha and we drove to the church and had a unplanned church tour with him and his friend which was really good! they both commented that they felt something really peaceful when we entered the chapel so it was a really cool experience.
Wednesday we had the cool experience of watching a worldwide Missionary Broadcast put on my members of the Quorum of the Twelve and the Missionary Board which was really cool, we received training from Neil L. Anderson, David A. Bednar, and Dallin H. Oaks and others so it was really cool.  Later that day we went and had a lesson with José and managed to convince him to come to try and visit some people (José is very timid and he only agreed to come after we promised to not make him talk and after we gave him a piece of candy haha) but he came with us and we had a great lesson with a Family of four, Parents and their 2 teenage daughters.  The daughters were a little more interested (probably because we had José "El Guapo" with us haha) but the parents were VERY VERY catholic.  They asked us if we would be offended if we came in because their house was full of "saints". they had at least 500 million statues of Mary or Jesus on the cross and everything in between. But they were a very nice family and were excited to keep teaching them. José also said it helped him a lot to be able to come teaching with us, which is exactly what we wanted haha.
Thursday we had a meeting with our Bishop here which went really good. After we had a breakthrough lesson with a less active member named Vidal and he committed to come to church and to bring a friend which was a huge step for him.
Friday was the worst haha we got a text from President Brough saying we should stay inside because of the "snow storm" that was going to hit. It maybe snowed 4 inches but it took like all day so it really wasnt that bad. But i ran out of things to do quick haha Elder Clawson told me i would make a terrible Astronaut because i got cabin fever after like 2 hours haha
Saturday we were able to help shovel some snow which was good. We also sat down and had another lesson with José, he is going through a lot right now but has been really steadily progressing.
Sunday we had Yorjanis and his buddy Alexey both lined up to come to church but they bailed on us the morning of which was lame. BUT Vidal did come and he brought a friend which was super cool! His friend was very interested in coming to church but told us he wasnt ready to meet with missionaries yet but that will change soon.
Other than that things our going pretty good around here, not much else to report! love you guys, hope you have a great week!
Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
