My Birthday was great! What did I do? Weekly planning and missionary work! YEAH! really no difference from any day.
Monday night my comp was sick. He had a fever and felt terrible. We bought some medicine, and because I couldn't find anyone to stay with him and work with me, I stayed and cleaned the apartment. It shined afterwards! Elder Oyarzun asked for a blessing that night. And the next day he was much better. So we were able to work.
Later in the week we felt like we should pass by a less active family. So we went and they were super excited to receive us! I was very impressed because before they didn't want to hear anything. Then we found out that the Grandmother (who isn't a member and is in her mid 70's) was praying that we would come that day. She wanted to listen to us. We gave them a Book of Mormon, and the next day they went to church with us! BINGO! (But not really, because missionaries don't play Bingo)
Sunday night we had a big surprise in that we received permission to go to the Christmas devotional. It started at 10 pm local time and ended at 11:30 . . . but President gave us permission to go. We went with a less active brother. It was wonderful. Very different from past devotionals.
Have a great week! I have to go to work!
