This week was one that flew by fast again! We have just been working and trying to find some new people to teach. We found a new couple that had been taught by missionaries in another part of Santiago and then they moved here recently. So we shared a little of the first lesson with them on Monday and then we met with them again on Friday. The craziest thing is that the wife had read the first 96 pages of the Book of Mormon in that short time! It was awesome to discover this. They want to get baptized but they aren’t married. That is a huge problem here and probably in the whole world now. Nobody gets married anymore! They just move in with each other! Especially here in Santiago, it’s hard because they have to get an appointment to get married civilly and it always takes about 2 to 3 months. So it’s difficult for them to progress quickly towards baptism.
Ivan is doing great! He bore his testimony yesterday in church. It was amazingly powerful and he cried! Some of the coolest missionary moments are to see people really become converted and feel the joy of the Gospel.
It’s getting colder here. My companion is getting a lot better at Spanish and I think it is because he is getting more confident. We had a leadership council meeting the other day and I saw a bunch of Elders that I have been companions with or friends that I have made here in the mission and it was fun. It was also sad because some of them I probably won’t see again. Well, that was my week.
