Well it has been a slightly overwhelming week for us. So much interest has been found - not only by us but all who are out in service. On Thursday morning alone - I started 2 studies, Mark 1 and Fernando 2! And that was just on 2 small blocks - and bear in mind the territory is covered every 3 weeks! Friday morning I was able to call back on a lady and she too accepted a bible study so it is very exciting for us. Flora has had 4 studies just this week alone and when I said to her that we don't want to overwhelm her so it is better to just stick to maybe twice a week - she begged us to come back sooner because she said she must learn what the bible says. She also said that we were the first people she had ever let into her house, so we are very privileged aren't we? Her brother Carlos was not there the last time as he works from 6 in the morning until 6 or 7 at night and also has an hour bus ride to and from work. We just can't imagine doing that - poor guy. But Flora said he really wants to learn too so hopefully he will get some free time.
Of course with all this interest you sometimes forget that not everyone wants to know the truth - so when someone told me the other day that I was a false prophet, I was a little shocked. I said - "oh Senora - that makes me very sad that you think that, when all we want to do is encourage people to read the bible" (- actually I was rather proud of myself being able to form that sentence on the spot). She just laughed and shook her finger at me - oh well I guess you get that.

This picture is for my daugher, Amanda who posted on her blog a picture of cooked chicken feet - I thought she might like to see the raw version - mmm yum!
