Another great week here in jauja! Monday played some soccer, downside was that i didnt have my contacts in so i played half blind, but it was still fun. Wednesday we had district meeting and elder avalos came. Haha i love that kid, taught us some useful tips and had a nice little talk with him. Really cool kid. Also Wednesday i did splits with a companionship in my district, its always cool getting to work with other missionaries and getting to know them better. And Saturday we went back to chacrampa to work with the people there again. They are just amazing people, i love them so much, my main goal before i leave is to start baptizing some if not all of them. They really need your prayers, it seems as though they are scared to make the decision.
I know they feel the spirit when we teach them but they arent used to making changes in their way of life. In the little towns here they kinda have a set way to live. But i know we are going to be able to help them. We are planning an activity with the ward to go visit them with all the ward leaders. So ya we are praying for success, they deserve it, pray for them.
So update on jonathan! Haha this guy is awesome. On Sunday he was ordained a priest and on Friday hes gonna go to the temple with the ward to do baptisms! How cool. Hes loving the gospel and whats even cooler is that the ward is loving him. Hes progressing a ton and its possible that he could get the melchezidek priesthood this month after stake conference. He wants to serve a mission but hes not able to because in 1 year hes gonna be too old. But i know hes gonna serve a big part here in jauja. We told him his mission is going to be helping his family get to know the gospel.
Oh so ya we would also like that you guys pray for an investigator we have named ingrid. Shes 19 and has all the desires to get baptized but its always a challenge for her to get to church. She has a baptismal date for the 23rd, so pray that she can achieve it.
Well cole trains bday is tommorow huh! Happy bday bro! Cant wait to work you in bowling!
Well thats all i got for today. Sorry for the lack of pics, i promise some next week Love Elder Paolacci
