We were able to fill up part of our days just walking around the area and showing him where everything is. Our area is huge though, so it'll take some time for him to learn it all. Of course, I only spent part of the day showing him the area. The other part was spent knocking on doors that had nobody in them. Even the memebers down here celebrate this very catholic holiday, so they weren't here either. At one point of the day, we were just done. The sun was blazing hot, nobody was answering, and the rare occasion that a person did answer, they were angry that we interupted their week of rest. I told my companion that I wanted to finish contacting the entire street. Just before giving up, reaching the last door of the street, someone answered and actually let us in. They seemed super interested throughout the entire lesson. Then after the lesson, without even bringing it up before, they asked "How can we be baptized in your church?" It was crazy, then one of them started talking in perfect english asking when we could come over again and where our church building was. It's crazy what can happen when giving it your all.
That's all for this week. More stories next time.
