So this week started off on a bad note. I got sick with...something..hahah and was puking all week but that is in the past. Fabianna and Fernando are super great but wont come to church...and we are running out of ideas. but we will see what more we can do this week. We found a less active family this week and they are a grandmother, her daughter, and grand daughter. they are all members except the grand daughter. so we are focused on them and getting them to church, we had a lesson and the daughter commited to come to church this week. hopefully we can get them all but we are making a lot of progress there. I also had a super spuritual experience this week. So wednesday morning i woke up puking and wasnt feeling good. but we went out anyway. i was praying for miracle because i wasnt feeling. my comp said that we should visit this inactive guy who we didnt know and so we looked his address in the area book and went to his house before our lunch appt just to see who he was. He opened the door with a giant smile on his face and invited us in. We introduced ourselves and told him that we came to visit him because we had never seen him at church. He told us that he had a surgery, that had him away from church for a couple months then a project from work. He hadnt been to church at this time for 5 months. He was getting ready to go back but he thought to himself that NO ONE in this 5 months had visited him, called him or anything from the church. His wife also had divorced him 2 years ago and he never sees his kids now. Because he lives alone he got into a drinking problem. Then he started crying. He said, Today is my birthday, and i opened the book of mormon to read and then i prayed. i ask for someone to visit me today on my birthday because i am so lonely. then you guys showed up at my house. It was incredible. We went to his house later that night to have a little party and share a message. He said he will come to church next week so fingers crossed.
What is a week without a wild experience. One day this guy walked up to us and said, i want to hit you in the face. We just looked at him and he took of my comps plaque and pointed at the name jesucristo and said he doesnt exsist, and because we teach about he wanted to punch us. my comp said no and we needed to leave so i started walking and the guy grabbed my shirt and pulled me back and said again, can i punch you. i said do it then we are we going to leave. but he didnt do it and we just left. kind of cool. haha
So, this week was pretty slow mission wise because there was a lot of thing going on. There was a soccer game wednesday (for the u-17 world cup) so we had to be in the house at 5. We made cookies and just chilled which was nice to have a break. Thursday was a pretty normal day. Friday we went to Rancagua which was sweet, big city and we had lunch at the presidents house which is always a positive thing. That was for a meeting with all the trainers and there missonaries. Saturday was halloween, which sucked because i got so trunky with all the music and kids and all. but we went contacting and my companion was wanting to go home early, so i contacted without his help and found 3 new people to teach. he later thanked me for my example as he was watching me contact. Sunday we found out that my companion is getting transfered, so he got mad and just stayed in bed until church at 11. Then we went and started saying goodbye to all the people in the branch.
Now for the crazy expiernce of the week.....SKINHEAD!! woohoooo. It is getting kind of funny now how hard this guy tries to harass us. On halloween he made a flag the said f mormons and gringos and ran and put it in our face and yelled long live satan. ahhaha funny.
