So a funny story I forgot to tell last week is that we have this investigator (who wants to get baptized and is a dry Mormon, but is waiting for her husband to want to marry her, like everyone else in Chile) who was wanting to show us a picture of her brother's baptism that she had on some disc. It seemed really important to her, so we stuck around watching the slow picture slideshow for like a half hour--but then we had to leave for another appointment. She texted us later that night saying excitedly that she had found the picture and paused it so we could come over that night before going home. We agreed. So at 10pm, we stopped by her house. We always have to call her to tell her to come unlock the gate since she lives in the way back of this housing place. Unfortunately, our phone was dead.
So what could we do? We can't ditch her or she'll feel super bad, especially after all this effort to find the picture. We can't yell, bc it's late and we will wake people up. We don't have time to run home and charge the phone. The only possible solution was to hop the fence. I tried but my legs were too short, so Hermana Taylor did it. The fence was pokey at the top and like ten feet tall, but that girl's got skills. Well, she did it...but unfortunately some guy saw us and told on us. We didn't get in trouble; they just told us to not do it again and it was embarrassing. Also, H Taylor ripped her skirt a little and damaged her knee slightly. Yeah, one of the less wise things I have done on my mission, sorry, Dad. But it was pretty funny and all for the sake of an investigator...
So there is a detailed story, Dad,like you asked for :) Sorry it's not really inspiring. We had a new less active at church this week who we are reteaching everything to. It's funny because a lot of people assume that the less actives remember the restoration and other principles of the church, when they really don't. It is cool to be able to teach them all over again and see that light of understanding in their eyes. The gospel really just makes so much sense to our minds and to our spirits :)
Have a good week!
Here is us at mutual. Yeah, we planned our mutual out and were all excited for it and then there ended up being 1 young woman, 0 young men, 4 missionaries, and 3 children of an investigator. There aren't a ton of youth to begin with and they don't like coming to mutual. We played games and made banana bread (which I burned). I even ended up having to spin around and jump over a broom, all in an attempt to un-lameify the night.
