Week 10: The bathroom can wait, their salvation can't!

Buenas Dias!

This weeks theme was definitely "The bathroom can wait, Their salvation can't!" Never in my life have I had to go to the bathroom as bad as I do on the mission. With our busy schedule you can either go to the bathroom or go to an appointment and as peoples salvation is slightly more important than relieving myself of the natural waters of life, I always tell myself and my companion "The bathroom can wait, Their salvation can't!"

Tuesday was a pretty good day. We went out and worked in a part of our sector that we haven't worked in much. Our sector is Villa Dulce which is divided up into Villa Dulce Norte, Villa Dulce Crav, El Olivar, El olivar Norte, and Canal Beagle. Tuesday we worked in Canal Beagle and had a great contact with a guy named Carlos who seems pretty interested. We gave him a Book of Mormon and plan on visiting him soon. The afternoon wasn't very productive. All three of our appointments fell through which was frustrating.

Wednesday was a good day. We had our district meeting and it was good. We talk about the attributes of Christ and today we talked about virtue and Charity. Afterwards we went and visited Juan and his family. I love them so much! Then we visited a less active lady who is coming back to church. Finally we visited the familia Araya who have been investigators for 4 years. They hadn't done any of the things we had asked them to do. We had a great lesson and they agreed to come to church! This Sunday we will see if they do it.

Thursday was alright. We had weekly planning and a far away lunch so we didn't leave the house to work until 5 so it was a shorter day. We went and visited a less active member. After that we went and planned a ward missionary activity that we somehow got put in charge of. Then we had a short and sweet lesson with Juan. We ended the day buying completos which always makes the day better :) A funny thing that happened was as we were looking for an investigator we stopped at his house and there were 3 guys outside on the patio smoking Marijuana! We talked to them and they calmed not to be the investigator but we could tell that one of them was. But it was super funny to talk to them because they giggled about everything.

Friday was pretty uneventful because it was Halloween. On holidays the people all go to the Mall and the Plaza so no one was home. We ended the day teaching Juan and eating empanadas with him. 

Saturday was basically the same as Friday because it was another holiday called Dia de los Evangelicos. We talked to Carlos and his woman friend Camella and then went to stake conference.

Sunday we went to Stake conference and then worked. We ended the day at Juans house because a new investigator was going to meet us there. But he never showed up so we taught them a lesson and left. I am sick of people making appointments and not showing up.

I love you all!! An awesome scripture that I encountered was Proverbs 29:18, I would encourage you to read it!
