Bolognesi wk 3; Peruvian kids go crazy on American Candy


Buenos dias Amigos and familia!!!

Greetings from Chorrillos, Lima! This week was an incredible week here in Bolognesi. Through many referrals from members we were able to find 6 new investigators: Andrea, Freddy, Amelia, Lucia, Hermina and Juan. But the biggest miracle was that we found Juan, the pareja (not married couple) of a daughter of a rescued sister. Together they told us that they wanted to get married as soon as possible in the simpliest way. Their disposition to follow the Lords commandments is astonishing. Juan and Joselyn just moved into our area and already have strong testimonies because they were previously recieving lessons from the Elders in San Gabriel. They have 2 cute, yet crazy kids and they are the funniest couple ever. Its crazy how we can laugh so hard with them and then feel the spirit so strongly as well.

This week we were also able to see our Investigator, Delia progress and grow stronger and stronger in her testimony, as she approaches her baptism this saturday. We taught her the 10 commandments and about tithing. She is so amazing, she told us that she wants to pay her tithing, not just to recieve the blessings but beacuse she knows its what the Lord recquires. We were also able to see the love and support of the members, as after church the Young Single Adults got together and filmed a video bearing their testimonies and expressing their love for her baptism.
This tuesday we also had our Mission Leadership meeting. Where all the Sister Leaders and Zone Leaders got together and discussed different topics of the mission and how we can help the mission improve to achieve our missionary objective. It was great and I learned so much! I also got to see Hna Ramirez and Hna Murillo! Then Sister McGinn (Presidents wife) and Sister Lunt (part of the married companionship that works in the office) made us sloppy joes and dirt a worms for desert (pudding, oreos and GUMMY WORMS). It was a great day.


This week, I also realized something very important..that American candy has a substancial amount of sugar that drives peruvian kids crazy. I gave a big bag of candy to the grandkids of one of the sisters who accompanies us and they went nuts!! haha They also arent used to sour candy, so they were all yelling ACIDO ACIDO and making faces haha but they loved it.
Anyways, this week we were truly blessed by the guidance and protection of the spirit in every moment. I know this church is true, that we are all children of our loving Heavenly Father and that Christ Lives.
Con Mucho Amor,
Hermana Mostert
