Well, we definitely had an interesting week!
Thursday night, we were out with Mosiah, a 17 year old young man in the ward, and went to go visit Ana, who got baptized in January. We saw a note on the door that said "Elderes." I thought, oh no... she´s not here. She left her phone at work, and after working all day, went back to work a night shift. So we were thinking about what we could/should do at 9:00 at night. Just then, this dad and his 13 year old daughter walk up to us and ask (but in Spanish) "Do you know of anywhere we could rent a room for the night? We got in this morning from Quito, Ecuador, and we need a place to stay for tonight." We thought about it for a minute, and then were like, "Hey! Let´s go to the chapel! maybe there are some people there that can help you-- maybe the bishop, too." As it turns out, he had planned to stay with a friend, or a friend was going to organize something, but then bailed once this guy and his daughter got to Chile. what a great friend, eh? So we called some people, and long story short, they went to stay at Violeta´s house. She got baptized in December. But we had to run to our pension and grab the extra mattress and bring it over there, and it was intense.
I also participated in a priesthood blessing that was given in Kichwa. super cool.
Well time ran out REAL quick. So I´ll write more next week.... hopefully.
Last week with Elder Strong, then he goes home!!!
