This has been another great week here in El Milagro. This week we have been teaching a single mom name Sarita. She is 22 and super cool. This week we taught her about the plan of salvation and how she can be together with her daughter for eternity. It is an amazing blessing that our Heavenly Father has given us, and knowing that the relationships we have hear on this earth have no end it makes us want to treat those we know and those in our family just a little bit better .
Last night in the bishop's house we had an awesome missionary night where we invited a bunch of people, played some games, and taught a super cool message about baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost. We were a little worried at first because at the hour nobody was there, but I think we had forgotten that everyone here runs on peruvian time so they all showed up fashionable an hour late as usual. It was super cool we played some games where everyone had to draw what "God" was drawing while listening to the Holy Ghost and we did a little demonstration about the baptism of water and fire to be forgiven of our sins. We literally lit a piece of paper on fire to clean a little stick figure of all of his sins. It was super fun. To make it even better my best bud Roy, a young 7 year old in a wheel chair that I met a couple of weeks ago, was able to come. The activity was a blast and Roy enjoyed it almost as much as the wheel chair races we do with him.
In other news today we went to the Huaca del Sol and luna. It was awesome. It is an old native temple from the moche civilization that lived here in Peru. We read and saw tons of cool artifacts and murals about all of the ceremonies and ritual sacrificies and such. Pretty sweet stuff. Makes me a little glad that in these days we have the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ so that we are not lost in the confusion of trying to figure out how to follow God. Although Jesus did suffer and die so that we could be forgiven of everything and one day return to our Heavenly Father's presence; ritual battles, sacrificing the loser, decapitating him, drinking his blood, then chopping him up into little pieces to feed to the condors is not something that our Heavenly Father has us missionaries teaching now adays as this Moche civilization did. Hahahahahaha.
Well all is well here in El Milagro with Elder Alcarraz. Until Next week.
