8/11/14 August 11th Elder Gurr
My companion got the papers ready for family Saravia and I went with the district leaders companion because he knew what to tell the lawyer so he did it. Then we went on divisions to find people and we contacted someone we saw on the street. We started to talk to him and we could tell that he didn't want us to talk to him because he was on his phone. We asked him some questions and he said he lived like right in front of the church and we asked him if he would like to come to church one week. He said, "I go to that church there." We have are church right next to the Catholic church. It's tough because they are all Catholic here in the city. Most of the doors we contacted where the Bishop lives was very hard but we found one who knows the church and wants to study the Doctrine and Covenants.
Friday was the best! We attended the marriage of Family Saravia. They were super happy for that to happen. They were awesome. It was so much fun. Lots of planning and stuff. It wasn't easy because when we tried to get it all together things fell. So when they were reading the wedding thing all of the sudden they had the wrong papers but in the end they got married. Then we went back to the church in Tiloarque for the reception after the civil wedding in the city office. They had a baby Shower going on so we pushed them to finish and set up really quick a wedding reception. It was tons of fun. We had cake and of course chicken, the one thing they eat the most.
Then Saturday was insane as well because we got a call an hour before to help move a family out of their house. We gave 3 or more hours of service. We moved everything a regular house has. We asked why and she said it's closer to the church and it's in a gated community. The community is much safer.
Love you all. For me the time is going by so fast. I felt like I wrote yesterday.
