Well, it has been quite the rollercoaster of a week! And sadly, I don´t have much time to tell about it!
One of the hardest days of this week was Sunday. My companion and I had done all we possibly could to help our 4 investigators get to church: we had lessons with them during the week about keeping the Sabbath day holy, we assigned members to stop by their houses and accompany them to church, and we tried calling them Sunday morning to remind them all. WELL, after all that work, none of them ended up going to church. It hit us hard! But we also realized that we can´t force people to do what´s best for them ;) we can only invite them and do our part to help them come unto Christ, and that´s what we did. Sadly, everyone has their agency ;) I´m just kidding, agency is absolutely essential to God´s Plan of Happiness! I know that we´ve done our part as missionaries and that the Savior will do the rest :) we just have to keep moving forward with faith and find those that are truly prepared to hear the gospel!
Now that the toughest part of the week is over, we can get to the best parts! We got invited to a Family Home Evening/Dinner party and it was all decorated for Halloween, in honor of my "yankie" or "gringo" traditions ;) It was great! Hot dogs with ketchup cut up like bloody fingers, spiders made out of black olives, and tons of sweets! My first and last Halloween in Argentina: I will never forget it :)
Today for P-day we cooked Lomo Saltado, which is a typical food from Peru, and then played Zombies vs. Humans. It was basically a giant flour war! Good times :)
Love you all! Have a great week, and do something special for someone else! :) Take care!
Con amor, Hermana Orgill
