Islena is going to get baptized this week! She told us a super cool story about how she was living in this little pueblo and feeling super far away from God and any good churches and lost. She took the decision to fast (a full 24 hour fast) and pray for help. The next day, she got on a bus to visit some friends in another pueblo called Villavicencio. There, she took an on-the-fly decision to visit her sister in a far away city called Yopal, even though her friends in Villavicencio called her crazy. She got on the bus, she came to Yopal, she got to her sister´s house, and a half hour later, we knocked on the door because of the appointment we had planned with her sister´s family and had our first appointment. That was a month and a half ago and now she is gettign baptized this Saturday! It is amazing how God guided her here. We are all pumped up!
WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE HOUSES BECASEU OUR HOUSE IS ..... (not so good) AND WE ARE HAPPIER THAN TURTLES UNDER A HEATLAMP. HAPPIER THAN AN IGUANA IN THE CHAPEL! HAPPIER THAN (the rats in our roof)! ! ! !
Being a missionary is the bomb. Spanish is cool. Rice is more common than clean water.
