Verduras anyone? :)
Well, we had quite the interesting start to our week on Tuesday! We had our District Meeting in the morning and then went to have lunch with a member afterwards, and when we returned home to our apartment to grab our bikes, we were surprised to find that we were LOCKED OUT! It wasn´t because we forgot the keys or anything, the door handle on the black iron gate in front of our apartment was broken! The door was locked and the keys couldn´t unlock it! So, we waited outside our apartment for a little while until a bishop from another ward showed up to help us out. :)
Yesterday, a miracle happened! We had 4 investigators in church!! The mom and dad Cristobal and their daughter Angie, and then Baltazar (Balta for short), the boyfriend of a less active woman. The miracle of it though is that 3 of the 4 investigators usually have to work in their big gardens on Sunday, but this Sunday they made the sacrifice to come to Sacrament Meeting anyway and just work really hard afterwards! It was amazing! But as always, when a miracle happens, Satan isn´t far behind, trying to ruin it all ;) A half-drunken man came walking in halfway through the meeting, exclaming that he was called of God to come here and sell his verduras
(vegetables). You can imagine what a scene that was ;) but luckily, the bishop came to the rescue and escorted the man out, before I (and the bishop as well) couldn´t contain our laughter any longer! The bright side of it all, the Cristobal´s really felt the spirit during the meeting and want to come back again next week! Yay for miracles!! :) Love this gospel!! :)
Have a great week! Love you all! Take care :)
Con mucho amor, Hermana Orgill
