June 7, 2016

We didn't have much time yesterday to write so we jumped on the computers real quick to write home. We had a really interesting week! Everyday this month so far it has rained! One day we went to look for some old investigators of the missionaries before us. When found the house but they didn't live there anymore. I decided to walk more down the same street until we reached the house of a contact we did a couple months back. It was the last house on the street. As we were walking I was just focused on getting to that house but then all of the sudden I turned and walked right up to the first house I saw. It was a green house with a wooden door. I have no idea why I turned, it was almost as if someone pushed me that way. I asked my companion if he would like to contact it. He was like sure. We knocked on the door and a teenager answered. He saw us and was really surprised! My companion explained that we were missionaries and all and then the kid let us into his house. Once we entered his house his dad and his mom came out all surprised like they had seen us before. They ended up being members that left the church like 10 years ago. We were the first missionaries to find them in 10 years! We also found out that their sons wife is not a member so we are going to try and teach her. They also came to church this week and the father bore his testimony and it was pretty amazing.
Today we went to the center of the city and went and looked at all the cool things they had. They had a museum of clothing there which was pretty neat. We also found a cool place that sells churros! They were huge and super good! We went and ate at a burger king and then went and walked through all the shops to look at clothes and what not. It was a fun day.
We are getting really close to having two baptisms. We are just waiting a couple weeks till they are ready. We were able to have 5 investigators in the church this Sunday and we had a member bring his nephew and we are going to go visit him tonight. Overall we had a good week. Hope everyone else is having a great summer!
Love Elder Ivie
