Well, this week was pretty normal, full of sweet lessons and dogs barking at us (Hermana Maldonado screams pretty loud, just so ya´ll know), and most importantly, feeling the Spirit.
But on Saturday, it was the coolest/scariest experience.....so at lunch we ate at this family´s house and the son (who served in Columbia) told us this story where they jumped him and everything. It was seriously an intense story. Well, that night we were walking towards our investigator´s house, and we were talking about that story, when we noticed these men following us (who knows if we were just scared about the story we had heard, or if it was for real, but we were scared). We crossed the street to see if they were really following us, AND THEY CROSSED TOO. About at this moment, we're winning the gold medal in speed walking, and Hermana Maldonado says "Over here!!!" We dodge into this little store on the corner of the street with faces that I'm sure scared the guy behind the counter. He asked us if we were okay, and we told him that there were these guys following us. He went out to go "talk" to them (I don't know what he had in mind), but they had already gone. We started talking to him and getting to know him...and guess what...he's our investigator now! He's a cool guy. He's 50 years old, but looks like he's 30 (for real). He lived in New York for like 15 years and studied cullinary arts there. He had this little shop of Indie music, but it didn't go well so he came back to Antofagasta. He asked a TON of questions that are easily answered by the gospel....his name is Yoso (I don't know how to spell it) but it's Joseph in Croatian or something like that. Maybe the Lord "pushed" us into that little store! Who knows but he's awesome.
I love you all :) Keep yourself safe!
