Cow Hoof Jello
December 9, 2013
One thing that I learned this week that is awesome is that there is always at least one principle of the gospel that will touch someone´s heart, you just have to figure out what it is. Our investigator, Gladis, is moving to Cusco, but until she moves we have been teaching her and we got to meet her husband too. He just didn't seem too interested in our message until we talked about the plan of salvation and how death isn't the end. We were talking about how all those who didn't have the chance to hear the gospel in this life will get a chance to hear it in the next, and his eyes just lit up. He got super excited and after that the lesson was so much more exciting. We don´t always know what´s going on in people´s lives, so we have to listen to the promptings of the Spirit to know what to teach. God knows His children best, and knows what they need to hear.
This week we had two awesome members accompany us for a lesson with the Rodriguez Family. The brother taught chemistry for many years and shared his experience about how he liked to have proof for everything, except for when it comes to his faith, but that asking God and having faith has served him so much better than doubting. This was perfect to share with the dad of this family. Members can relate with our investigators so well and are the best to have in lessons. Help the missionaries please?
The interesting thing I ate this week "pata de res". It´s like leg-foot of a cow. The outside was rough and maybe still had some hairs and inside was really chewy. Afterwards we ate jello made out of the stuff. I had always heard that jello is made out of horse hooves but never really thought much of it, but I guess maybe jello is made out of hooves after all! The jello wasn't too bad, but a little more...natural tasting than the jello we eat in the states.
Anyhoo, we are working hard. Have an awesome week! Love you guys!
