We've hit the colder part of Winter here in Chimbote. Everyone is suffering from the "brutal cold." It's kinda like fall weather... But everyone is getting sick "due to the change in weather."
I swear it only cooled off a little. It's finally not hot all day every day (just for a few hours of the day, the rest is pretty cool). But I guess it's all a matter of perspective.
I kinda miss the snow, though.
Anyway, more important than the weather is that we had another baptism this week! Yefferson was able to make it to baptismal water, even though his mother Hna. Zuly couldn't quite make it. But Hna. Zuly should be able to follow his footsteps in these comming weeks. The baptism service we great. We only ran into one problem; when we showed up, the font was empty. We had filled the water up early that day, but someone came and drained it all before the baptism. We came, opened up the door to show Yefferson the water, and there was nothing. UGH!
But, thankfully we have a font that fills up pretty fast and by the time enough people showed up (40 minutes later, which is normal... unfortunately), the font was already filled and we started the baptismal service. It was still shock to open the door and see it dry, though.
Other than that, we've been doing great down here in San Luis. We're working hard and have several more people who are getting close. We'll be here to help them each step of the way.
Hope all is well and that everyone can keep enjoying their Summer.
