We have HEAT!

Well this week was GREAT! A lot of administrative stuff, which kind of stunk but we still did a lot with the little time that we had. So first of all, we finally moved yesterday!!! Woo!!! We were living in a house of 4 for like over a month...too much time, like it was fun and all but we didn’t have any space at all, nothing stayed clean, and we lived without fire, or any form of heat, or a stove to cook on for like 2 and a half months. So we were more than happy to move ha-ha. We had two houses to choose between and we finally prayed and made the decision yesterday and chose one from the same owner as the other house. But it’s got a fireplace, a stove, and a gas heater, and its super nice. So almost all day yesterday we were packing up and moving everything to the other house, a lot of work but hey we’re finally all settled in and it feels so good!! I’m so happy! I can finally make food!!!! I’ve been living off Top Ramen and bread with peanut butter for a while now haha. So yeah we’re pretty happy about that.
 
Anyways we also had the leader’s conference this week, which was good. President changed up how we did it so it was pretty good. We stayed with the APs the night before and it was super fun. Hmm what else happened this week...Oh! This week I had to travel all the way to Quemchi...it’s like a little place on the side of the island, because someone was getting baptized there so I did his interview. And I totally left my umbrella there which stinks. But it was a cool little city! Super pretty and super small. Oh also!! Paula didn’t go to church but 3 of her kids did!! We got a member to go pick them up in the morning and 3 of her kids were all ready to go so they went and it was awesome!! They all loved it!!! Had a super good time and got along with everyone there!! So we’re excited about that, we’re hoping that they all come next Sunday.
 
 Good news! So Pamela was acting weird for a while and like didn’t want anything to do with the church so we kind of left her alone for a little bit because she was just resisting...but her son is baptized so we passed by on Sunday and took him to church and everything, but it was cool because yesterday she called us saying she had things to talk about. We were afraid she was mad at us because we hadn’t been passing by as often...but she actually like apologized to us and told us that Oscar just seemed so happy when he got home from church and she wants to start over again and go to church and everything and work towards baptism again. So that was a major surprise and a repented heart! We were super happy and thankful that she has softened her heart again! Anyways, hope everyone has a great week! Chao Chao!
