Monday April 9, 2012: Hermana Bowles--Feliz Easter

Hermana Bowles and Hermana Rodriguez working hard in the beautiful Peruvian countryside.

Movie night at the church where they showed "The Testaments."  Movie night wouldn't
 be complete without popcorn for everyone!

Hola Familia!

I have to admit....i missed Aunt Lauri`s Easter Eggs this year.   Hermana Rodriguez absolutely loves "gelatina" and I told her that one day I`ll send her the egg mold so she too can celebrate Easter "jello-egg" style.

Went to Yantalon again, but only the grandma was there.  The rest of the family was in the chacra.  We helped the grandma wash her clothes and then came back to MOYO.  She can`t be in the sun for too long.

"Semana Santa" has come to a close.  While we were waiting to have "correlacion misional" Friday night, the procession from the catholic church was starting in the plaza de arms.  It made the Sacrament so special yesterday because I really felt grateful that we can enjoy this symbol of Christ  every week.  Sacrament Meeting really is beautiful. 

We had a movie night in the capilla this week and watched "The Testaments."   A family that the elders are teaching came and a good group of members!   They liked the movie and the members, too. The familiy came to church yesterday, too.  Good sign :)

I`ve decided it`s always a funny sign when the dad opens the door of the house and says, "wait here, I`ll get my mother in law."  You know they want to bring them to talk to you because this 85-year old woman doesn`t have anyone else to talk to and the dad wants to give her someone to talk to.......That was the case with one woman we met this week, Maria Eva.   We have an appointment to go back with her this week and hopefully her son will be more willing to listen.  We met lots of good families this week.  The kids of the families really help their parents progress. General Conference has me so refueled.  I like when Hermana Rodriguez contacts people and explains that we have a message of happiness that God has restored to the earth and we want them to enjoy the same blessing.  It`s true........

Hope Easter was a special beautiful time for everyone,
Hermana Bowles
