January 30, 2017

This week was pretty cool and it was pretty stress free (kinda) but most of the time it was pretty fun:

1. We went on unexpected intercambios (splits) and I went with Elder Draney´s companion Elder Anhuaman (kinda like aqua man) and we found some people that we taught through contacts.
2. Our pensions daughter, ALL THE TIME, asks her mom if she can have some refresco (juice) before dinner and ALL THE TIME her mother tells her no and says that she has to finish eating before she can have any and the child's answer is always yaaaaa puesssssss (I don´t know what the literal translation is but its kinda like "come, onnnnn" or "pleaseeee". So now we use it all the time in our room.
3. The other Elders in our district needed to move because the home owner didn't want anything to do with the church so we had to go and help them move today which was kinda annoying but oh well. I got to spend some time with my bro Elder Draney. I´m going to try to send the video we took but I´m not sure if you all will be able to see it.
4. Elder Salazar totally burned a contact yesterday. We asked this lady in the middle of the lesson if there were prophets again on the earth if she would listen to them. She said that she wouldn't because she already has her pastor. Elder Salazar then asked her if she knew what happened to the people when they didn't listen to Noah. She knew the answer but didn't answer and then Elder Salazar invited her to our church and then we left. I was kinda mad at him but at the same time you should have seen her face. Hilarious. 

After the whole Noah thing we contacted this one guy who was super receptive to us. After about 10 minutes of talking we asked if we could enter his home and share our message with him. He did and we started talking about the plan of Salvation. Man he had so many questions and he was super receptive to it. He even said that it sounded somewhat familiar to him. (when he said this I did like probably the weirdest happy dance inside my head) we then invited him to be baptized and he accepted. God truly prepares the hearts of the people out here and I know that this gospel is true.
I love and miss you all,
Elder Garbett
