Yesterday morning from 8:30 am to 1:30 we went to our ward in Magdalena and had splits with some members of the ward. Karen went with Maria Elena to 8 inactive members in perhaps the largest zone of the ward. Luckily for Karen Maria speaks some English. They spoke to someone at 7 of the homes. Some promised to come back and even attend tomorrow.
I went with Santiago a 17 year old priest, to the furtherst part of the ward to 22 homes. We found that several of the people had moved and perhaps aren't inactive afterall. Several said that they would come to church, though we didn't see any of them today. We even talked to a neighbor of one of the sisters we were looking for that said she would like to know more about our church and would love to have the lessons. Today we turned her name over to the elders working in that area to go teach her and Karen and I feel that we don't have time right now to teach her with the changes the president is making. In the area we were working was this Catholic church that I had to take a picture of.
After leaving the Magdalena ward we took a bus home, changed our clothes and caught another bus to Jockey Plaza. The largest mall here in Lima. It is larger than any I have been to in the Salt Lake valley. In fact at the end of it after finally buying our light globes at Ace Hardware we had our choice of having dinner at TGI Fridays, Bennihanna, Lone Star or Tony Romas. We walked all around this three story mall complete with an 8 Plex Movie Theatres and a large Bowling Alley.
When we got home my feet were killing me.
