8/3/15 A Child of God

Chaufa is like brown rice with lots of oil and small pieces of chicken, egg, carrots and other little vegetables. The chicken is normal grilled chicken.

We don't have a pentionist here, we just eat at little restaurants which are like 5 soles for lunch (a little less than 2 dollars). 

If they don't name him Finnigan, I call it. haha

This Sunday the district made some changes; in the branch  presidency, elders quorum and the relief society and so forth. Our converts finally got callings! l_____ as second councilor in the relief society and E____ as second councilor in the young women's presidency. Also the branch now has the schedule reversed with priesthood first, Sunday school next, and sacrament meeting last.

We were visiting some less actives the other day and one of the sons, A_____, a 7 year old, started pointing at me and saying "you scare me" "go away" "you look like a new year's doll, they should burn you" (referencing the fact that they burn scarecrow dolls at New Years)  I really didn't know what to say, I was just like, "sorry!"  hahaha

We were teaching the Articles of Faith with E____ and she started asking questions about the creation so we decided to have a small lesson to help her to understand the second paragraph of the family proclamation with the end purpose as found in Doctrine and Covenants 132.  When she fully understood that she is not a creation of God, but his child she started tearing up and said I don't have anymore questions - I understand now!  Then yesterday we got to Article 10 and she started asking about the second coming and temples so now we'll be explaining that!

Our branch mission leader fell of a motorcycle and broke his collarbone so we drew on his cast haha 

To his dad:
How long are your ward council meetings and how often do you have them? Here in South America Northwest Elder Uceda asked us to start having ward council meetings every week, so President Archibald always talks about how the only good reason for having ward council every week is if we baptize every week and he talks about the plans that we have to have for baptizing every week.
