November 2, 1015

So I realize that I don't really tell you guys a whole lot that goes on every week. Some people say everything they write in their planners but I just say how cool life is and all that I'm learning. So I guess today is the day I finally tell some stories of whats going on. 

Well, this week started with a good Pday on Monday as a district, we used the cookie recipe you sent and made chocolate chip cookies with two awesome recent convert families. We ate cookies and played with their monkey haha.
Tuesday, we taught lots of lessons and contacted almost 15 new people. 

Wednesday, we taught on the top of the mountain, the mom of the young girl who was baptized almost a month ago, her mom, and a few of the families that live close always all come to listen to us when we go up there, its like a small reunion that we do a few times a week. Its awesome, theres almost 10 people up there that always come to listen. 

Thursday, we started the day with service at the little pig farm in the middle of the jungle again. I sat down in the middle of the pig pin of some pigs that are like a month old now... They all started trying to eat my clothes and my shoes haha. Then we taught a really sweet lady who works for some recent converts in their restaurant. She doesn't know how to read so it makes it a little bit harder for her to understand things, but we were able to teach with the spirit and more than understand the message, she was able to really feel the message. 
Friday, Friday was great, although we walked all day long, the day was great because we saw a miracle. There is a sister that is facing a few trials against debt and hasn't gone to church for a while because she doesn't want to lose the income on Sunday. Here in Peru, the biggest shopping day is Sunday and it's where lots of people make big earnings for the whole week. But last week we taught how God blesses us when we make sacrifices and obey his commandments. She built up enough faith to trust in the promise and to trust in God and for the first time in a long time she closed her doors on Sunday, and came to the church with us! She told us on Friday about an experience that happened this week how she was walking in the street and kicked something by accident, she kept walking but then felt prompted to go back, she picked it up and saw 800 soles (about $270 US dollars) she looked around and waited for a long time but no one came so she prayed and said "thank you God. Although we teach that the blessings are more spiritual than temporal, God manifests himself to his children. He blesses us when we follow his commandments and he gives us what we need to believe in him. Money isn't going to fall from the sky for everybody, but God always keeps his promises and in one way or another, he always blesses the lives of those who obey his commandments. 

There are miracles all around us :) I promise that there are miracles every day, we just have to be able to recognize them. Have a great week! I love you!
