Started out a strong week. Tuesday we had a good lesson with Brisa and filled out her ´ficha´ (Paper for baptism) and bought a milinesa sandwich
Wednesday we cleaned the church a little bit for the baptism, and only had one lesson with Silvia, our recent convert, and bought a milinesa sandwich.
Thursday we went and filled up the font in the church for the baptism, planned, taught lessons with Celeste (really good progressing investagador) did the ChuChuUa (Link from her, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umOCLJgZQYI) and Brisa. We went over the baptism questions for her interview, and her mom didn´t sign the ficha. we also got home 45 minutes late because the consistancy of the colectivos kinda suck. DIDNT BUY A MILINESA SANDWICH
Friday we had a zone training about ´How to reach our goals´ that was really good and informative. We went to Brisas for her interview, and she was sleeping, and her sister wouldn´t let us wake her up, So we went and taught a lesson to Silvias daughter, she wants to be baptized now! :) Then went back to brisas and she wasn´t home. Taught a less active family, and went back to brisas, still wasnt home, so we waited. after about 40 minutes, we went home. We didn´t have any contact with her that day, text, call, face to face, nothing. Yes, we got milinesa sandwiches.
Saturday... Dia de amor, dia de triste (sad) Went to Brisas in the morning and talked, she was scared to be baptized, she was afraid that after, she would get sick, or something else bad would happen. we had about an 1hr15min lesson with her getting rid of her doubts and fears about baptism. Elder Iongi and I taught, testified, and shared scriptures with her. She was ready and excited. So we set up a time to do the interview at 5. Came back after lunch and studies for the interview, and she was sleeping again UGH! the mom wouldnt wake her up and told us to come back a different day, we went on splits, and i stayed with the DL in my area, we contacted for an hour and went back to Brisas. We found her and talked to her, she said her mom didn´t want her to be baptized. After some convincing, we were able to talk to her mom. It wasn´t great, we testified about how ready her daughter was, and how great of a choice she was making, but the mom wouldn´t let anything change the fact that they are a Catholic family. We comited her to pray and ask God if this was his will for Brisa to be baptized, but I don´t think she will. Talked to brisa after, and let her know that this doesn´t change the fact that she is doing the right things with her life. She will be baptized, i just dont know when.
we got home and there was a huge party going on right outside of our house! they call it ¨carnival¨ It was loud, and there were a lot of people, and food carts. Yes we bought milinesa sandwiches.
Sunday, 0 investigadors came to church, then taught 2 or 3 lessons
Pday, didn´t get to email because the place was packed the whole day. but we talked to a lady that works at ChangoMas, and she seems promising. We are teaching her tonight!
Today, we had district meeting, and a solid lunch with hermana Avila (less active because of health, she is the sweetest lady, and cooks amazingly)
Transfers are next week, this could possibly be my last week in Santiago, hoping for another one. I want to finish things off with some of our really good investigadors, Elder Iongi, and Brisa. But whatever happens, im ready to ¨let go and let God¨
*We play a game that if you shoot a person while having eye contact with them with an imaginary blow dart gun, they have to completly go limp and fall, it is a great time, you cant move until somebody touches your ear. There have been some funny, interesting, and great positions people have been in, including when elder Ionge was hanging his clothes up outside, and elder Hogge shot him from inside the window
