Great week. Monday we had the traditional multi-zone soccer game. Fun as always. But it also reminded me how long I have been around this city(Huancayo) for a long time haha. I think ive had like 4 of these pdays.
This week we've been helping out the people we found last week, really focusing on helping them prepare for their baptisms on the 30th. Kinda bummed cause I totally failed on my whole baptize once a week goal to finish but I am glad we have found the people we have. We have 4 baptisms that we are thinking are sure for the 30th but we are trying to not get ahead of ourselves. But the truth is that we have been super blessed with the people we have. One is named Isabel, she's the one that came looking for us and it took us like a week to find her. She is amazing, already has a very strong testimony and is excited for her baptism. She couldnt go to church yesterday because she got super sick and it made us super sad cause we really wanted her to experience stake conference (more details to come). We also are teaching another lady named Ingrid. She's super funny and we've grown to have a super strong relationship with her. We contacted her about a month ago in the store she works at and she's been progressing Little by Little and is very excited for the 30th. And the other two we have are mother and daughter named Gloria and Shirley. Haha they are great.
We were also bummed for them yesterday because they were super excited to go with us to stake conference but Sunday morning at around 3am glorias brother showed up drunk and she had to take care of him. Its funny how the opposition does his best to try to stop this work, but the truth is he cant. Last night we went over to their house and taught them about baptism and the spirit was super strong. They are so prepared. And they aren't gonna let anything get in their way before their baptismo n the 30th. Sooooo i need you guys to pray especially for them so they can be strong in these two week that are coming and also so they can go to church Sunday. So ya, well Saturday we had our multi zone conference with president. He's doing it kinda different here in Huancayo, he's doing it in 2 parts. The first was Saturday and the second is this Saturday. It was really spiritual and we learned alot.
Sunday we had stake conference and President was there with an area seventy named Elder Mestre. It was a great meeting and we wish all of our investigators could have gone. Haha but the highlight was that during Elder Mestres talk he said "well at this momento I am going to ask that Elder Paolacci come up here and bear his testimony" Oh man what a surprise! It was quite the experience. I have never talked in front of so many people in my entire life. But the spirit was sooo strong and the words just came out. What an amazing experience.
well my time is up. Have a great week! i love you all
