Weekly letter 8.5.2013

Standard

Dear Family,

 

What a wild week. So last P-day we got locked out of our building and couldn´t get in and the land lady went on vacation and our neighbor never came home so were sat in our pensionista´s kitchen, kinda freaking out because we called everyone we could with no luck. We thought that we were going to have to spend the night in a member´s home. But who… We didn´t go out to work because we were in our hiking clothes. So its 8 30 at night and we called our zone leaders. They ended up asking our neighbor if they could borrow their roof and from there climbed up the wall and over onto the roof of our building. Luckily here their roofs aren´t closed. There is a hole in the top and stairs that lead down because people use their roofs here to hang their laundry. So we got in! woohoo! Then we put our pensionista´s son through our bathroom window to get into our room. We was all too exited to be apart of the action being 6 years old and all. Then the next day after our district meeting the Elders locked us in the chapel when we were in the bathroom and left and we were freaking out! But then I saw them through the window laughing at us! They are all brats ha ha.. They always like to play jokes on me. Like telling me that they have 4 letters for me and a huge package! What really!?? Ha ha no! and then they laugh. They are mean but fun.

 

So when I got to Tarma we were teaching this family. Family Vasquez. Sandy, Harold, and Andre. Their mom is an inactive member and doesn´t want to have anything to do with the church. But then they were never home or busy and yeah.. but their aunt came into town this past week and she is a member. She has been motivating them a lot and we have been teaching them every night. They have gone through a lot in their lives and live with their grandfather, who is from a different religion. So they grew up going to a different church. They have all agreed to be baptised August 16 but they all have doubts about Joseph Smith. I learning a lot about having patience with people. Sometimes we just want them to accept everything really fast but what we have to realize is that to jion the church is not an easy thing. To change what you have believed and been taught all your life. But little by little.

 

I love you lots and lots

 

Love

Hermana Polatis
