So it's been a great week so I guess we'll start with the Rundown!
Mon: P-Day spent playing soccer then a Mega-FHE in the church where members
brought two of our investigators!
Tue: Found another inactive family that we are working with whose kids
aren't members. I'm not sure how I feel about baptising just kids but I
guess completing families is cool.
Wed: More work and some zone stuff we had to take care of. That's a kind of not
as fun part of being in Puno we have to deal with as Zone Leaders here. We have
to go to the terminal almost daily and a lot of the things that the office just
takes care of in Cusco we have to do. It sometimes hardly takes any time out of
our days and other times, like Wednesday and Thursday this week almost all of
Thu: Helped the sisters move which ran into a few...let's say hiccups like
losing keys and crazy old ladies trying to beat Elder Henniger for reasons I'm
still not sure on. But we also ran into a few more inactives in the sector that
we are working with. If this keeps up Hujsapata is going to turn into the
ward it should be!
Fri: Worked like normal in the sector, just a good day.
Sat: A member went with us to visit some inactives and give us references, I
honestly think this was one of my best days for a WHILE. It's just great
working with members and since arriving in Puno it's something we haven't done
a lot. I can't hardly describe how awesome it is!
Sun: A lot in the church and some good work after, a great way to close a good
Now to the questions!
Do you want a steak that is cooked right or do you really want one WELL DONE!!!
? (over cooked)
---Well done is not overcooked, it's just cooked. Rare is otherwise known
as raw and medium-rare as half-raw. :)
How cold is it getting?
---I live at 12600ft, it's winter. It gets cold. Like in the negatives at
night cold. But during the day it's hot. It's weird. TIP (our catch
all term for Puno, This Is Puno or Peru depending on the situation)
Do you eat at their home or somewhere else?
---Here we don't eat in member homes hardly ever, not exactly sure why....
Do you ever get to read the newspaper?
---Not really, every once in a while but it's not a common thing. And it's not
that great, it's like reading one of those ALIEN ATTACK IN TEXAS! papers that
they sell in the checkout line at the grocery store.
Well think that about wraps that up, till next week
