Travel and Travail
Elder Chipana and Me
This week was surprisingly long.
In Medellin I went to El Hueco which means "the hole" which is basically just a big street market where you can get stuff for really cheap. Got a few new ties and a shirt for home. The next day we just kind of walked around and got some really expensive peruvian food. Wasn't that great, but they have some pretty good spicy sauce stuff. Don't remember what it's called.
My new companion is Élder Chipana. He is from Peru and he is hilarious. We found three new families this week. One lady just came up to us in the street and asked us where the chapel was. She moved into the neighborhood two days ago and she says she wants to be a member along with her husband and two kids. She lives really close to the chapel, so I'm hoping things go smoothly and we can baptize a family! Another family Elder Robison found contacting with Elder Morillo last week. They seem very interested and they live right behind the chapel. The family we found when we got caught in the rain also seems very interested. Once again, we seem to be starting from zero, but with three new families I'd say it's a jump start!
