Sept. 19 - Week 16 in Ica, Peru FIVE Months!!

This week we got to be a part of a baptism! Cute little 8 year old Aaron was baptized. His dad and mom, Luis y Sara, are our less active family that we have been working with! They are doing well and his dad was actually able to baptize him on his birthday on Sunday. Touching experience!

This week we had the privilege of witnessing miracles in our area. We have been working hard to find and find and find new people to teach and we found 7 new people and 1 new family to teach this week! We have been working hard and being obedient and we are starting to see the fruits of our labors this week! What a week it has been! 

We had a lot of interesting experiences this week! One of which is that we had the opportunity to teach 20 people at the same time. We had a lesson with a lady we contacted in the street and she told us that her dad just passed away and that they had actually just returned from the cemetery. But she said she had 20 minutes and wanted to hear our message with all of her family. We thought she meant like mom and sisters. But everyone was there! We walked into a room full of 20 people just waiting for us and it was so surprising! But a very humbling experience. We shared a short message about Jesus Christ and how He knows exactly how we feel and what we are going through. Then we took all of their directions and we went on our way! It was a very spiritual experience and we felt the spirit so strongly in that lesson, sort of thing.

But it was a good week and we have been working very hard here in the land of the sun! It has been so hot as we are going into spring and summer. A nice 85 degrees would be a good average for the heat here around 11 am. But Ica is the best and the people are amazing! I love my Savior and I love the church! I love the people here in Ica!
