Week 26

So this week was sooo sweet!!  Man I am soo crammed for time all the time!   It's so great! Makes the days and the weeks go by super fast.  Tomorrow I hit my 6 month mark... it does not feel like I have been here 6 months then again it feels like a year haha but I'm doing awesome!  How is everything back home?  Getting ready for school.  The walmart is absolutly packed here in the back to school section.  It's so weird seeing everyone get ready for school.  I feel like I should be in high school.  So we went to dinner at this peruvian family's house this week and their son who is 25 he's just left wednesday for BYU provo.  He's about to get married and he's soo sweet.  He made us like a 6 course meal.  It was nuts!!  The first thing he came out with was this guacamole stuff but he put pomagrante seeds in it! Pretty good, then this corn that was boiled, then grilled, then had all this other stuff on it,  pretty bomb, then this octopus that was grilled with this black bean sauce.  Then this carne asada with these fancy potatoes and I think there was one other thing and then they finished it all off by giving us home made flan... sooo good.  Nothing like resturant flan./  I seriously have never had food like I have here- it is sooo good!! Then we have been teaching, seeing less actives, bringing less actives to investigator lessons... wouldn't recommend doing that again... haha then just this last sunday was such a miracle!!   So the Spanish branch is doing absolutely amazing!  Everyone here knows about our 2 baptism goal before the end of September.  Yesterday, we had a branch council meeting that was amazing and focused on the missionary efforts.  After, with the branch presidents permission, we got the entire branch together, except the children, which were in primary, we showed the restoration video, just the first vision part.  After that the spirit was so strong that we passed out family plans to each family in the branch.  We watched about 4 hastening the work videos and they wrote down ideas of who and how they could help missionary efforts.  They passed their papers back to us, we made copies and gave them back theirs and we kept a copy.  Now we have names of who these people want to work with!  Now all we have to do is edit the plans with them when we go over and follow up.  The branch president then stood up in support of us and said that the way we are going to be able to get these names is through prayer and the spirit.  So we have really been praying for each one of these people by name because when we do that there is just a different feel!!  It was so amazing.  And then that night we had a fireside where 3 past missionaries came and spoke at the stake center.  Mostly everyone that is active from our branch was there.  I have faith that we can get these 2 baptisms!  Miracles all around. And another miracle happened that night.. It was like 8:50 and I was close to our apartment, and I was like I have to do key indicators tonight and call a bunch of people I should just go home, but I was like no, not yet, I really want an 8:59 I tell my companion, we are going to get an 8:59 miracle tonight... so we have been trying to find this guy named Leonelle forever!!  The sisters gave him to us a little bit ago and his cousin just got shot in Vegas, The only thing that I knew from him is his name and that he wants us to pay for his cousins funeral... So last night we are walking and I see 4 hispanic guys and it's like 8:55 so we talk to them and I am not even kidding you at 8:59, some random guy drives up and says Elder Cornejo, Elder Brewer, how's it going?  And we are just like what the heck who is this guy?  He says I'm Leonele!  So we start talking to him and he parks the car and we get a return for tomorrow!!  And he said he'd really like to come back to church!!!  Ohhh Whaaaaat??  That was so sick!!  And he knows my trainer Elder Riddle so it was sooo sweet!!  He's gonna be baptized haha.  Talk about finding... we walk down the street and our investigator just finds us!! It was sooooooo sick!!!!!  I was pumped!!!  It reminds me, we are fishers of men, just need to be in the right place at the right time.  I love it!!  Hope you all have a great week!.
