Wow this has been seriously such a week.
Tuesday I was turning on the boiler in the house and it backfired and burned my eyelashes and parts of my hair off so its been a struggle feeling like a girl and everyone i tell the story too laughs haha which i guess it could be pretty funny. Hermana Quispe enjoys re telling the story a little to much. Also my eyelashes are so short that i cant even wear mascara so its a little sad.
Wednesday was a weird day we had a full day planned of investigators but all of them except 2 cancelled and our members cancelled and the plan B and C people were no where to be found. So for the most part we just walked around contacting and begging to give people cards with our numbers on them which sounds totally weird saying.
Thursday isnt cool enough to write about because it was the same as Wednesday.
Friday we were leaving the house and at the enterance to our house is a huge orange gate and some how i managed to run into it so now i have a nice lovely bruse and goose egg on my thigh. Hermana Quispe just shakes her head at me a whole lot and says ¨"Hermana Jammet usted no tiene bueno suerte" which is saying that i have terrible luck.
Saturday was actually pretty good i got to eat tacos again and thats always great. Also we taught lessons to new people and gained a couple more investigators.
Sunday we visited our members and less active members and people who flaked out on going to church and told them to go to church! and we visited javier to see how he was doing after baptism and he was late to the appointment and when we asked him why he said he was talking to his dad about the baptism and the gospel which was insane because its been like a week and hes already becoming a great misionary! Also we visited this lady Paola and i had an incredible experience with God and the Spirit. Paola is a recent convert to the church and has many problems in her life. her dad is in the hospital from a heart attack i think hermana quispe described it was his heart that broke so i assume a heart attack. and Paola has to pay for the medical bills. She has 2 kids and her husband is a taxi driver and she doesnt have money to even feed her kids let alone pay medical bills. Last night we sat and listened to her as she vented and i cried with her while hermana Quispe gave consolodating words of encouragement and my body felt super cold. And then the spirit took over me and i grabbed paolas hand and instantly felt my body completely warm and it was like i could feel the spirit coursing through me to Paola. I said some words of encouragement and love i think i honestly have no clue what i said but i know it was the spirit speaking through me. In the moment i could feel the pain of Poala and the love of God all at the same time and after i was so tired i couldnt think or do much of anthing that night. I was so exauhsted that i fell down a flight of stairs in my house that night when we got home and couldnt even feel the pain afterwards. I definitly feel it now the next day and let me tell ya i did a good job at falling hard haha!
Its incredible how when you are prepared and quite how the spirit is able to work through you. I gained such a testimony of the Holy Ghost and the gosple of Jesus Christ and especially my purpose last night as a missionary. In this week of Christmas allow the spirit to be with you and your families and openly seek those opportunities to feel the spirit and i promise your life will be uplifted and enlightened. Feliz Navidad and Merry Christmas! I love you all and for my family who i will see soon YIPPPPEEEEE!!!!!
