Okay so this week was so long for some reason, well and short.. I´m actually not really sure how to explain it. This week we got the opportunity to hear from Elder Uceda of the 70 (He´s our area president) He is super cool and I learned SO much! I think he sucked all of the spiritual energy out of me. It was all super fun. We had to travel to Puno and I got to see the Quispe family!!! <3 I think I will cry everytime I see them. I love them sooo much! After two days in Puno, we came back to Jxx and returned to normal missionary work. woohooo! We worked super hard and I think we'll have some pretty amazing news next change. We continue to visit with Yuly! SHE IS THE BEST! I love her so much! She had her interview this Saturday and I could not be any happier. She is so amazing and has such a strong testimony already. She is willing to change her life for the Gospel. That's when you know you have a golden convert. During her interview, one of the members asked us if we could teach one of his friends while Yuly was in the interview and of course we said yes! The girl came and we began to teach her our purpose as missionaries. Suddenly, a rush of water came spouting into the baptismal font. After a couple minutes it stopped. Super weird but we continued to teach. About 5-10 minutes later water started spouting out AGAIN! One of the Elders and us went to see if we could stop it. We found a key that stopped it and continued the lesson. A couple minutes later water started to fill the font again. We had no idea what to do because it was off! Anyway, we ended up calling the secretary of our ward to come and drain the font. All of us were joking that someone on the other side was trying to tell this girl to be baptized, hahaha. It was hilarious and I think it's true ahaha. What else could it have been. The water was off! I think she's getting baptized. She has SO many questions and the Gospel can answer everyone of them. In reality, the Gospel can answer every question, just if you let it.
Oh yeah and these lovely photos haha, this morning, we went to the catacumbas in Lampa. It's inside of a Catholic church and you can go under ground and everything. The picture of me is outside of a tumb thing with a bunch of bones inside. It was super amazing. They also have a replica of the statue of Mary carrying Jesus by Michael Angelou. Super beautiful and I want to go back! This country is beautiful and amazing but the thing that makes this experience amazing is this Gospel. The Gospel is beautiful.
Les Amo un muchisimooo!
