Well, we passed Tuesday War. It's a Carnevales tradition where they soak everything and everyone. Without mercy. And they don't just use water, but paint, and sewage, and shoe polish, etc. It was crazy. We only left that day to go to a reunion, but we had to go from our room straight to the church in a taxi. We couldn't walk. There were hundreds and hundreds of people in the streets with buckets. It was insane. Teenagers walked around in groups of 10 to 30 looking for other groups or even individual people. Phew. It was something else.
Other than that, we're working hard to help people to come unto Christ. It's been a bit slow, but it'll pick up. Unfortunately, our progressing investigators (Ximena and Andre) just decided this week that they didn't want to get baptised... It hurt. Now we're really worried about them and have hit a bit of a wall. But we were blessed with some great new investigators this week. So we'll work hard with them and do our best to find those who are ready and prepared. And work really hard with the other two. We know that God can work a miracle in their lives and help them make it there.
But I've been doing great, despite the difficulties. We're not gonna let anything get us down, that's a huge key to success here. If life's hard, work harder. And by doing that, everything seems to turn out alright. If we choose to follow God today, tomorrow will be just a little brighter.
I love you all and hope that you're doing well! Keep looking forward with faith in Christ so that you can see the brighter future!
