Rico Rimac

Monday, January 22, 2018

Yes, I don't remember what it's like to not be in Rimac. jaja

What to tell it has been a long week and I'm tired but so many miracles that I cannot count. 

Okay, here comes a good story but let me set the stage.

So, the sector where I am now Rimac 1 D is half of what was a big sector where there were two elders.  So these elders were told that the sector would get split and they needed to prepare todo bc we were coming.  Well they gave us 2 investigators to visit and a folder full of teaching records that had not been touched in more than a year.  If you have served a mission you understand, if not... we started proselyting in a new area that we did not know.  In a new ward.  And with 0 progressing investigators and nothing to work with.  Literally nothing.  So we contacted like crazy and knocked a bunch of doors and we received on referencia from the Hermanas in Leoncio Prado.  We decided to look for it which including climbing the cerro/hill for a good rato bc we did not know where to look for the direction.  As we were climbing I felt something tell me to knock on a door.  I didn't.  We kept climbing.  The stairs ended, nothing.  So on the way down we knocked.  A man named Carlos came out, very friendly, told us where he thought the house was then let us in to visit his mom (her legs are paralyzed) and his son and nephew.  Josue and John.  It was Saturday.  Sunday Josue came to church.  And this Sunday too.  He is preparing to be baptized the 3rd of February and his grandpa and cousins the 17th.  His dad needs to get married but this fam is super prepared to receive the gospel and it was a testimony that God works in small and simple ways asking a direction when you are lost on the top of the cerro.  Their neighbors are now our investigators too. 

Orto story August and Yesenia.  They want to get married and baptized.  The elders a year ago got changed and stopped visiting them but they need the gospel and recognize it.  They were a referral from a member.  This ward is awesome!  This sector is awesome!  These people are awesome and the gospel is awesome!

Love you all

Monday, January 15, 2018

That is my new name that President gave me bc guess what I had changes but I'm still in Rimac!!  hahahaa So remember how I said last week that we might be getting new Hnas in Rimac???  I am the new Hnas in Rimac.  I'm in barrion Rimac 1 antes.  It was 6 elders and now we are 8 missionaries in one ward.  Four companionships.  I am also with a new missionary Hna Baez from Paraguay.  So it has been very interesting getting to know the ward, the sector, the members and teaching my comp how do things but she is AWESOME!!  We get along really well and she makes me laugh!  We don't have a place to live yet so we are staying with the Hermanas Capacitadoras which is the best bc I still get to hang out with Hna Pauvif every night.  It is probably too much fun but what are you gonna do.  

So today we are not gonna have pday and tomorrow will also be a long day bc we are doing a two days working 100% days so it will be very tiring but I'm PUMPED!!  haha My sector we are literally starting from 0 from no investigators but I have faith we will baptize in January and we found a sick family for February.

I love you.  There's no time.  I gotta go WORK!!!!

THE CHURCH IS TRUUUUUUE!

Editor's note:  I have no idea what churros has to do with this letter, but bear with her because she's funny.

So this week Jose Abram got baptized!!! He was so happy!!!!  He has been waiting so long for this!!! And it was so sick bc a bunch of people came.  There we 30 people there so it was super full!!  It was so great!!  And he was so happy.  The next day was his confirmation.

Also Alvino.  Who is the goal for this Saturday.  Was gone all week and he came home Saturday night we thought for sure he wouldn't go bc we could talk to him.    But he went!!  Soito!!  (No idea what that means.)  He brought his grandson!!  It was awesome!!

Also, there is a member who accompanies us everyday and she is the best.  Her name is Leyla.  

Also cambios are tomorrow and it has been so short!!  I think we will stay together but sho knows!!!  IT would be sick.  My comp is the best, we get along super well.  It's like arroz and pollo. (rice and chicken, lol Peru's staples)

So as a mission we have made the goal to have 2018 in 2018.  So we need every companionship to baptize two every month at least to reach it.  My comp and I are still going for once a week.  We will reach it I know we are so close. 

This week has been a good week.  I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel with everyone.  I am super happy to be in Peru. 

Funny story of the week.  Today cleaning the cuarto/room we found a cucaracha and my comp screamed and I tried to kill it with a spray but it just ran so I tried to trap it in a cup.  (At this point we are both screaming) and in trying to trap it I fell and as I fell I was in the perfect position to trap it in the cup.  I BELIEVE IN MIRACLESSSSSSSSS (since ya came along) okay too much too soon.

Love you alllllll

Read the Book of Mormon and the conference talks from October!!  A conference very inspired in that they reminded us to follow the council of the prophet and showed and exampled of obedience.  Also, I invite you to read the last conference talk from President Monson about the Book of Mormon!!

Love you all!!!

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

So as a mission in 2017 we baptized 996 people with the goal to baptize 1000.  Four who were not prepared.  But we have a goal set to baptize 2018 in 2018.  That is the mission motto now it's sick!!  Christmas and New Year's were sick!!  On Christmas we bought a bunch of panettone as a zone and walked around the street knocking doors and singing and giving away panettone.  It was sick!!  New years we rode bikes as a zone in Miraflores.  It was also sick but Christmas was better.  

In the month of December we baptized 122 people.  In the last week 42.  Miracles are possible and we have all been hit in the face with a where is your faith punch.  The work is increasing and we need to increase also!! So this year is gonna be sick!!

Edgard did not get baptized.  We have still been unable to find him.  He feels embarrassed bc he has a problem with gambling but we have faith that he will get baptized in January.  This Saturday Jose Abram will get baptized.  He has been waiting for permission for two months so he is very excited!!!!  Also we are visiting the dad of a member Avino.  He is from Cerro de Pasco and is super cool.  He will get baptized the 13th.  And we are working on our goal for the 20th.  

My comp is the best we can read each other's minds it's sick!!  And I am super happy to have another hot summer here in Rimac!!

This week I have been meditating a lot about the Book of Mormon and I invite you all to read Moroni 10:3 and count your blessings that you are one of these chosen people.  Then share your blessing with others.  Even in Utah there are people to baptize.  It doesn't matter when we learned about the gospel, or how much we know regarding it.  What matters is how we choose to apply it and live it.

I love you all.

Baptism!!! Elder Castillo is the best. He is my ZL. 


Javier and his fiancé Flor

Edgard said I am not drinking coffee I'm drinking this, look.  He is the best.

Woops..  Something strange happened and you get to see the photos first this week.

Yes.  Grinch quote.

JAVIER GOT BAPTIZED AND HE IS SO HAPPY!!.  He is getting married on Saturday and they are already making plans to get sealed next year!!  He is awesome.  It was a little nerve racking in the baptism bc he had to do it like three times but I'll just say I am soooooo grateful for my zone leaders.  Such cool guys.  

This week Edgard  gets baptized.  He is so prepared and so happy!!!  Today will be his interview and yesterday he introduced us to his son!  We will have to baptize him too. 

So in our sector we have 3 jovenes who are waiting on permission (2) and lessons (other) to get baptized but other than that they could get baptized this month.  That would be so sick bc we just need 82 more baptisms as a mission to reach 1000 for this year!!  And we have seen so many miracles already!!!  Our phone broke this week and we have been without one since Wednesday but the Lord has given us miracles.  

This Christmas is a Christmas of miracles and I hope you are all counting them like we are.  I'm so unbelievable happy to be in Rimac again.  These blessings I am seeing are so great and almost too much too soon. 

I love you all and I want you to know that two thousand years ago a savior was born.  I know it to be true.

Love you all.

Happy Christmas

#christmasmiracles

So this week Edgard was one of our Christmas miracles.  He is a ref from a member and he is SO PREPARED!  He accepts his date for the 13th and h is so excited he is already inviting everyone!  This Sunday he almost  didn't come.  He works graveyard as a security guard far away so he got home at 7 Sunday morning and church starts at 11.  We passed by his house at 10:30 but they said he wasn't there.  So we called and called from the church at 10:57 he answered and said he had been sleeping but he would come and we decided since he lives two blocks from the church to go bring him.  We ran to his house and brought him to the church but we got there at 11:15.  Just in time for the sacrament!  And it was so worth it.  He was so tied his eyes were so red but he was so happy  He drank the water and then said what an alleviation you feel right?  What kind of water is this?  It was so awesome to hear that.  Then he was gonna go home and sleep but instead he stayed and said I don't know how but God gives me strength.  He is a miracle.  So awesome!!  

This week we were able to work with the Hnas a lot and it was cool to be with them.  They are really great and they are working hard.  Our goal as a mission is 1000 baptisms for this year and we only need 104 more to reach it.  We can do it I know we can!!  My comp and I are super excited bc our sector has some areas where the missionaries have not been in for a long time so we are gonna work there and find more miracles. 

I love the initiative bc it helps everyone it doesn't matter their faith.  Remember to be a better person this year.  and the next.  Everyone should go watch all the videos, they're the best!

I love you all.  Happy Christmas, watch the Grinch, listen to Donny Osmond and LIGHT THE WORLD!!

I thought it was a joke when the zl called haha but the cat's out of the bag, i have come back to my homeland to comprar mi terreno/buy my land. haha  My comp is awesome.  She is from Chile.  Her name is Hna Pauvif.

So this week has passed so fast!!  I am in Rimac 2 now.  That is the neighboring ward to Leoncio Prado where I started my mish.  So i have seen all my old people except Jaime.  And a bunch of the members from Rimac 2 remember me from my tiempito (6 months) in Leoncio Prado haha MISION RIMAC!!  haha  We also share the church with Leoncio Prado so I really am in the same place!!  It is great to be back!!

We worked this week with Alexandro.  He was really ready bc his mom is a convert but it was fun doing little interactive lessons with him bc he always wanted to escape haha.

Also, Jose, Abram y Celia are the goal for this Saturday and the next week we don't know yet and after that Javier and then we had a miracle in church.  (everyday we have miracles but this one I will tell you about.)  A member invited his friend and he came to accompany him to church all the way from Barranco! That is like 2 hours away.  And it is the 2nd time he has done it!  He is super awesome too!  He loves the classes and he wants to join.  We were like that my dude we would love to help you with that. haha Rimac is so awesome!

Also we are iluminando el mundo this Christmas!!  I invite ya'll to go to Mormon.org and print off the calendar, watch all the videos and LIGHT THE WORLD!!  It has been super awesome this season so far and I know it will only get better.  I love this country and my Rimac!!
