Okay, I don't have a ton of time, but this week was great! We had a talent show with the ward on Friday that was a lot of fun! And we have quite a few new investigators. V has been doing well. He smokes and has been trying to quit. So far so good, but it's only been a few days. His baptism is set for August 17th and we're praying that he will have the strength to give up smoking so he can be baptized. C is also doing well. We talked to him last night about if he has interest. The good news is yes, he has interest! The bad news is he doesn't like the Word of Wisdom. But the good news is, when we taught it to C, he didn't even stay for the whole lesson so he doesn't know the blessings! So we're going to be teaching him the Word of Wisdom as well as helping him to gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. He also smokes, but he has a desire to quit so we'll be helping him with that too. Jeesh, I'm going to be a pro at helping people stop smoking by the end of my mission.
Other than that nothing very exciting happened this week. We don't have any baptisms for a few weeks, but we have a few people on date. Not sure if they're going to follow through, but we'll keep working with them and I'll keep you updated!
In the meantime, I have some pictures! Food and other things
So there's Frac which is basically the Chilean equivalent of Oreos. They eat so many cookies here! They don't have much candy, but if you want a cookie, come to Chile.
And I found the cream cheese! It's in these weird tube things and you squeeze it out, but I don't care. It's cream cheese.
Milk--the good kind.
There's also a picture of our water heater thing.
Dehydrated milk. Gross.
Milo. Also gross. It's supposed to be hot chocolate, but it doesn't taste like anything.
Manjar. hahaha it's basically the greatest thing ever. It's really similar to caramel, but a little different. They put it on everything,
A picture of the beach. The sand is black--so cool!
And our decorations for the talent show!
I hope that's in the right order. :)
