Marching on

Well, time is MARCHing on, as we are already in month 3 of this year. Seems like it was just yesterday I skyped home, and now we're more than half way to the next call home! 

The rain is slowing down, and the sun has come out finally. My shoes are dry and poop is no longer running through the streets of Arequipa. It still kind of smells though. We are working hard to try to find new investigators, because the ones we are teaching right now really arent progressing. They are super Catholic and refuse to accept anything that is not Catholic. The problem here is that a lot of people say they want to listen to us, we take an appointment, go back the next day-- nobody is home, they went to play soccer, they're washing their clothes-- long story short they're just floreando (saying a bunch of crap). But, I know that if we keep working hard to find these people that we will find people who are truly interested in the Gospel and are willing to progress. 

We had 2 baptisms this week! Alexandra and Janeth. Deyvis had a date for this week, but I felt like he wasnt ready so we postponed it a little bit longer. Hopefully this week we can get him baptized. The baptisms went well, and they were both super excited. 

We killed the family ducks this week. They were quacking too much, so the only solution was to chop off their heads and eat them. My comp apparently knows how to cook really well, so he prepared a classic Northern Peruvian dish. One of the ingredients is beer (dont worry, we cook all the alcohol out of it), but when he open the bottle, it exploded all over us and we kind of smelled like beer the rest of the day. Thankfully we didnt have to teach anyone the Word of Wisdom yesterday haha. 

Well, that was my week, it was a good one, hope you all have a good one!
