My sector EXPLODED... Literally!

You´ll never believe what happened... There was a huge explosion and fire that lasted all night and the following day in the supermarket next door to the church. But to the surprise to us and the people watching the giant flames tear down this huge store, the church was untouched. Hooopefully we can use that as some spiritual "firepower" to prove that this is Christ´s true church...

The amazing things just keep on happening here in my little pueblo. This sunday we had all 3 of the women that I talked about in my last email come to the church and are super excited about their baptisms! We even had an even cooler experience happen with Maria (the abuelita with 93 years). We went out to go look for Lorena, another one of the women who is being baptised the 22nd, but after calling her we found out that she was already on her way and didnt need to worry about going to get her. So instead we climbed up the biggest hill in our sector to go to the house of the member who had been helping us teach the lessons to Maria. But she had had a change of heart and didn´t feel like going to get Maria in her car because she didn´t think she understood everything we had been teaching her and that we shouldn´t baptize her this week. But after talking a little sense into her, we got her to drive us to the house of Maria, but she said that if she wasn´t ready to leave right when she knocked the door that "Too bad, so sad". We found out that she was still sleeping when we drove by so we left.. then at the start of the 2nd hour of church, MARIA JUST SHOWED UP! This 93 year old woman knows the importance of the church so much that she woke up and walked from her house to the church (about a mile and a half -- with giant hills) just to be there. When we asked her about if she still wanted to be baptized this weekend, she pretty much told us "Well DUH!" Hahahaha, so we have her this weekend and Lorena and Sandra the 22nd. And we have even more planned for March now, which include a family of 6 with 3 sons who could possibly serve missions, and a young couple who is going to have their first child in 4 months.

My sector has taken a drastic change for the better and we are finding a TON of great great people.

And since today was P-Day, I went to Concepcion and blew a good chunk of my christmas money on the missionary essentials --- Shoes (brown ones of course to rock the Latin style) and ties.... Lots and lots of ties haha
