Well, it's fall now and fall is HOTTTT like insanely hot. Which really
worries me because compared to Arizona heat this is nothing. Real lucky
that I'm getting back in November instead of July!
But, that isn't my topic for this week. What is my topic...I'm not
exactly sure. It's my turn to send the numbers so I'm probably going to
find myself running low on time here. However, I'll see what I can't
do. Elder Delgado has a change which means that
I'm going to have a new companion here, quite possibly I'll be training
a new Zone Leader.
This week was somewhat...disappointing I suppose would be the word. We
were going to have three baptisms but due to a few unforseen
difficulties we ended up having none. But, that allowed for a very cool
story to be told...
After the let down we ran into Ruben, who as it turns out lives here in
Cusco but served in Colombia and baptised Elder Delgado's family in
Barranquilla. He invited us out to dinner and during our time with him
we both, Elder Delgado and I, realized just how
important the work we do here really is. We'll never forget the highs
nor the lows but through both we will be able to help people both in the
field and at home. We see these things everyday, but sometimes I think
we don't really think about them till much
later. Something to apply to all of us, do we really pay attention to
what we are doing or have recieved? Maybe just take a few moments each
day to do it, you might find it interesting, I know I have.
Next week I'm going to send an audio file so be ready!
