To start it off I’ll tell you a little about good old Julio and Nelson : )… They're the best! : ) Well, the first 4 times we talked with Nelson (all in random parts of our sector), he was more than a little drunk. I’m happy to say that my Spanish has gotten much better.... but not understand-drunk-man-from-Peru better : ) We ended up finding him (again) with his friend Julio (who we had met once before).
We invited them to come to church with us the next day and guess what... THEY CAME... and they weren’t even drunk!!! Yay! In the past two weeks they have been progressing A TON!!! Saturday, we passed by with Fransico (who just got baptized), and for the first time in two weeks Nelson was drunk, and Julio was a little tipsy.... it was hard to see them falling back. I bet that is how God feels to see us return to bad habits. But Francisco, who went through the same process laid down the law : ) We came back the next day when they were sober, and we taught about the Plan of Salvacion. They were able to see the consequences of the actions they are taking. When we explained what happens after death and how our choices now impact what happens after, Julio started telling us all about the how he DID NOT want to end up in any other place other than the celestial kingdom : ) This week their goals are: DON’T DRINK, read their Book of Mormon, and pray to know if its true! I really love these guys! That Francisco was with us, just put the icing on the cake : )
I know the church is true, I know that God loves us, and I know that the Book of Mormon CHANGES lives : )
Sed de Buen animo!!
