This week was amazing! We are finding families and the families are coming to church!!! La familia Tafur Leon (Nancy, Karin, Andrea, and Fatima) are all getting baptized the . La familia Fernandez Leyva (Gayle, Abelino, and their 11 year old son) will be baptized the . La familia Gonzales Dias (Karin and Juan) will be baptized the 26th as well :) And even more came to church! We are so blessed, and have big plans for the Huaraz ward this month of July :)This week we went to a goodbye party for a girl in our ward who is leaving on her mission. It was all great and fine and dandy until they fed us chicken foot soup! Chicken foot soup is a really popular food here that I have been able to avoid for about 14 months. But, Peru wouldn't let me leave until trying my chicken foot soup. Oh....but it wasn't just a chicken foot, it was a hen foot which is a lot bigger with HUGE toenails...so it was kind of gross!! At least I can now say I've had it, and the soup part was pretty tasty!
We also had a really random rain storm this week. It poured with thunder and lightening and we get SOAKED. It rains a lot here in Huaraz but usually only January through March. So it was way random. Hermana Medina and I were looking for a house when it started and for a whole hour we couldn't find the house and no one would let us in. A woman passed us running to her house and she said ¨get inside, you are going to get sick!!!¨ We were like ¨Well, we would if you would let us in!!¨ Haha, we were a little bitter but it was a good experience :) We had fun. My shoes will be wet for a long time now, though :)
Hermana Leyva also got to come to Huaraz this week(see photo above) to visit Hermana Medina and I!! It was the best :) Hermana Jones came too!!! Man, it was the best to be with them again! :) I love those girls. Your missionary companions really just become your best friends :)
