This week has been kind of a bummer because i got SICK again! but it's okay, what can you do?
Monday night, we contacted a cool young couple that works in their own pizzeria. It was a nice way to start the week, finding some new people to teach.
Tuesday we went to an appointment that we set Monday night when we called our bishop. He gave us a super important reference to teach the husband of a member who theyve been trying to teach and convince for 30 years, because the day before, he walked up to his wife and said "i want to listen to the missionaries." We taught him the Restoration and I see a real change of heart. He wants to become more close with God. Miracles are happening! The bishop is also SUPER happy we're acting on our word. He said "I love Americans because they always complete their responsibilities!" Proud to be an American :¨) hahah.
Wednesday we thought would be rough because we had almost no set appointments but it turned out to be great! We went and contacted the cool guy at his barber, and talked about the church. The more we said, the more he liked it! He kept saying "Esa religion es bacana!" which is like "That religion is awesome!" haha. That night we taught a reference from a less active that is going through chemotherapy. Poor lady. But she is incredibly strong and positive. You have to be, right?
Thursday, I got sick, BLECK. We tried to go out and work but kind of just bounced from member's house to member's house because the sun was killing me. That night i got worse with a fever of 100.6 and lots of body aches.
Friday i was still sick but different symptons. I got a sore throat and a bad headache! We went to lunch normal, but i almost passed out so we went home and i rested a bit. I was so bored but so miserable that day haha.
Saturday i was feeling mostly better, so we ended up working normally! But we only found 1 person home alllll day. which is the worst. We read a quick scripture with Nai and had to go to a FHE that fell through. Nai is excited for general conference though! im excited to see what she feels!
Sunday was exciting, we had a huge meeting after church talking about the direction of the ward. the bishop is willing to do anything to help us grow. I love that about him. So we're making a new mission plan. Besides that, it was a slower Sunday as well.
So that was basically this week! SLow slow slow but this week will be better! And GENERAL CONFERENCE! We can listen to the latter day seers and revelators! So get PUMPED!
Love Elder Welch
I told him that I'd read about Colombia being in a drought but that my weather app shows clouds and lightning EVERYDAY in Cali. His response:
"HA! that app is lying! try hot sunny days at 95 degrees every single day. it is sooo hot lately. i want rain!"
I also asked if he saw the eclipse Sunday night. His response:
"there was an eclipse?"
Haha! I guess missionaries are too busy to look at the moon :)
