Well we started out the week still stuck in the house, but it went fast all the same. When we finally left we still had some after effects of the chicken pox, and really sore bodies, but at least President Essig and Sister Essig know why we didn´t "bring in the bacon" this week. That´s okay, we´ll just have to kick butt THIS week......even though it´s gonna be a tough one. This week is the week of 18 de Septiembre....their independence day. And they celebrate BIG time. It´s their biggest holiday here, and EVERYONE doesn´t have to work for the whole WEEK almost. It´s all drinking, parties, BBQ, ....and vacations. So it´s hard to even get the members to open their doors, let alone investigators, ....and LESS for door contacts. But we´re gonna set this place on fire! We´re rolling out the red carpet! We´re bringing out some combos! We´re....we´re working hard. HA.
We are eating lunch with a different member now and the family is really great! They´re very REAL and always happy. They´re all members, besides the dad,...but the mother is the only one active in the church. All the same, the family is very supportive and super amiable. The father works more in one week than I thought possible....12 hours in the day 12 hours in the night....oh yea....that´s all day!!! He works A LOT. But with this week he was able to have a little bit of freedom, so that was good. We were able to have lunch with him and it was great to be able to talk with all the family....even some of the cousins! He even sang for us! 2 songs haha.....of course with the condition that I sang as well, but hey. I sucked it up and it went well!
I finally sent dad´s bday present. Just so you know....before I forgot...
And F* was confirmed. It was amazing to see everything come through to the finish line. ....now he just has to keep up the good work ...forever!
Well!! I´m loving the mission, as always and wishing you a happy and FUN filled week! CHILE!
