It's been a good week! I cant believe it's already Monday again. Last Monday we did a work visit with Elder Castillo (something interesting always happens when I'm with him). So what happened is he got bit by a dog a week ago, and during studies on Tuesday we had to go to La Molina to get a shot, so we went there Tuesday. On Thursday we had a training with President in the offices with my group that came with me in the mission. And this morning I woke up at 4 am to go to Central Lima to get my visa taken care of. Then we had district p-day and climbed up this hill.
One of my major accomplishments this week was teaching a lesson basically by myself on divisions during the second hour on Sunday because Elder Chalampuento was interviewing. But I taught the law of chastity to a couple of conversos recientes who are Novios and Maria. I was stressing about it beforehand, but it went so smoothly. I felt the spirit putting words in my mind to say. Stuff that I already knew. Stuff that I had studied. It reminded me of a promise that the branch president in the CCM made to me. He told me that 2 months in the field I would be completely comfortable in teaching lessons. And Sunday was the 23 of October, exactly two months in the field.
One experience this week was finding a man named Eber. He was a reference from the Elders Quorum President, a less active member. We knocked the door, he let us in, and I was touched by what I saw. Hanging on the wall was a picture of the Lima Temple, the family proclamation to the world, and a baptismal certificate all in framed cases. This guy was really happy to see us. We shared the Restoration with him, it was a good spiritual lesson. Afterwards, I asked my companion why this guy was less active, he had a testimony and everything. I think the answer is Home Teaching. Everyone go read Jeffrey R. Holland's talk on Home Teaching. Home Teaching is easy! And it's so necessary. These people need constant support. Even in Utah.
Love you guys!
