Hola Familia!
Well I don’t have much to report this week.  We worked really hard this week, climbed a lot of mountains and found lots of people. We had interviews and room inspections this week and it was quite a funny experience. President decided to make the room inspections a surprise this time. We arrived at our district meeting Tuesday morning and everyone was talking really fast. We inquired as to what was going on and all they said was “President and Hermana Gomez and the assistants are here!” This was a big surprise because we are way out here in the jungle and president is in Iquitos and they were not supposed to arrive until Thursday for the interviews. Some of the missionaries started telling us how the assistants had showed up with president really early in the morning to do house inspections. We heard some pretty funny stories because many of the missionaries had not cleaned their houses. We were laughing at their stories with a sigh of relief that that had not happened to us. To our lovely surprise the assistant’s walked in moments later and told us that they had made some surprise visits this morning and they said, “ For the rest of you, give us the keys to your house, we will be going right now with Hermana Gomez to visit your rooms while you are in district meeting.” Oh my gosh I almost died. My house wasn’t dirty but I didn’t make the bed ( sorry mom!) and a few other things…. It was kind of a stressful experience but it is fine. Lesson learned: Clean the house better before Hermana Gomez makes a surprise visit! Our investigator didn’t accept a baptismal date this week and we were kind of sad but we are going to keep going forward and hopefully we will see some good blessings this week. I love you all so much!
