This is a combination of the last two weeks

DSCN0208[1].JPGYes, it is true that I saw Gerardo (Silvia’s brother) in downtown Lima. He actually saw me. If he had not yelled, “Kacy!” Maybe I would not have seen him. The conversation was short, but cool. My zone leader was with me, and he thought it was some investigator who saw me. When we finished talking to Gerardo, I said, “Huh. That was my uncle.” My zone leader was very surprised that I ran into my uncle by chance in a city of 10 million people. Continue reading

What. Is. Up with it

What. Is. Up with it, fans and supporters of the cause. This week was the last week of the Church´s Easter iniciative. If you haven´t seen the videos yet, then you´re a square, and you should watch them. I hope you all had plenty of fish, beer, and fireworks for Holy Week! Cuz that´s all that was had down here. Contacting around the holidays here in Lima is usually pretty awful, since everyone´s too busy partying. Still, we got a fair amount of work done. Continue reading

It’s 10/04/2017 cuz thats how dates work down here

Hey hey heyy

So this week was pretty solid. We received a lot of inspired counsel from our leaders and from President and Sister Larson. We were definitely lacking in some areas, and it helped us identify what we needed to work on. So I´m still in Elio with Elder Horne. Still eating Vaquerito´s (we´ve made a goal to limit it to only twice a week). Still lovin´ the ward. They´re super supportive with references and fellowshipping. I just feel bad we haven´t had too much success.

Still rocking it in Elio!

Well, everything is fine here. We have two investigators who are going to be baptized. They just need to get married, and they are making plans, together with the ward council, to pay everything. They are a couple of a Venezuelan brother (Kenny) and a Peruvian sister (Leiby). They found the Church, because a Venezuelan sister is living with them. She is a small challenge, because she has Asperger’s and has moved away from the Church for reasons of personal pride. Even so, he says he has his testimony. They have read the scriptures she has, have enrolled in institutes, and have already met several members and couples in the ward. They say that they want to be baptized, because they have felt the Spirit, and that it is their own decision. They are golden contacts.

Rain & Floods Update

DSCN0180[1] (2)

First, we have water! Finally. We went from Wednesday until today without water to bathe and flush the toilet. Needless to say that everything was filth. Now, though, we´ve got a decent amount stored up, since they brought some water back. They´re putting out water in short bursts and then cutting it back for days, so I sure hope our water lasts a while. The Rio Rimac flooded, and the main park in the Center of Lima is very wet. This Sunday the stake organized a service group to help. I´ll attach a photo of our water storage.

It´s always great to hear from you and read your letters. This week has been very productive for finding new investigators, but we have not been able to do much follow-up with the ones we already have. It’s hard to find them for the second time. So there we are, just doing everything we can. There is not much to write. We are not having miraculous experiences every day, but we are working and seeing some fruits. I feel great physically. I am eating a lot of nuts, and I am also buying other foods. All is good with respect to that. Now I have a refrigerator and a microwave that work normally. I’m storing yogurt, milk, and food.
