This week was legendary. First of all we did divisions with the assistants. The mission president was in Colombia all week long for a mission president training and the assistants had nothing to do in the offices so they just did divisions every day with the ZL's in the Quito zones. We had like a million contacts and new investigators that day haha plus we have a new family, La familia Zambrano. They are pretty sweet. The husbands mom is a member of the ward and the wife was a Johova's witness but is really intesested in what we're teaching. Plus we have a lot of people with baptism dates right now. So we're happy!
Another situation: This week we visited a less-active family: La familia Jaramillo. We visited them with the bishop; he showed up a little bit late though. So we got there like 20 minutes before he did and as we were waiting, nothing happened... And then everything happened at once! The mom just starts choking to death right after I say the prayer, her husband and daughter run to her and try to help her in the kitchen, then the bishop arrives, then their cousins that they haven't seen forever appear out of nowhere and we lost control of the whole lesson haha. With the bishops help we finally started the lesson. In the ending prayer that the bishop gave, the mom "lets one go" (a.k.a. she farted right in the middle of the prayer) My companions and I are strugging not to laugh for a 2 minute prayer, and then right after the prayer, she blames it on me! I quote, "Élder! Fue usted!" Hahaha
I usually like contacting in the street butwe contacted a lot of doorbells that usually aren't effective but even in they don't work, we at least usually get a lot of laughs out of them haha. I share stories when I get home but I just love that even though usually everyone is home, like 80% are always busy haha. (I always think of a funny final judgement situation: I'll be standing next to Jesus and the people that we contact that reject us will be facing us. When they ask me to put in a good word for them I'll say, "No gracias, estoy un poco ocupado" Hahaha... I'm dispicable)
Aparte de eso, yo di (por primera vez en la misión) una bendición de salud en Inglés porque un Élder en la zona, que se llama Élder Madsen, está enfermo. Él tiene una migraña o algo así. Él quiso que yo hiciera una bendición en Inglés, entonces lo hice! He dado como 20 a 30 bendiciones en la misión en Español ya, entonces era un poco difícil dar una bendición en Inglés siendo honesto, pero el Señor siempre provee una manera. Así, espero que sus vidas sean muy bendecidas está semana. Los quiero mucho!
