Week Fifty-Six: Elder Raft

So this week was pretty normal...except for Saturday. On Saturday the 18th of October 2014, Elder Craft became Elder Raft.

It all started when he felt the Spirit and decided to knock on a random door. As we are knocking, a little Peruvian child who is covered in dirt comes up, rings the doorbell, and out of nowhere...LICKS Elder Craft's hand. Elder Craft was so disgusted that he yelled at the kid in English and told him NEVER to lick his or anyone else's hand again.

Then, I felt the Spirit and decided to knock on a door. A 20 year old girl opens the door, gets a really surprised look on her face and starts flirting so hard that we had to just walk away. I have never seen a human person flirt so hard.

Then we saw a less active member of the ward. He turned and looked at us and we saw him with a beer in his hand and a cigarette in his mouth. Then he gave us the cold shoulder instead of even waving and turned around.

Later that day, we went to talk to a lady that lives on the calle Huascar. We hate going to the calle Huascar because this other little kid lives on it who thinks that it is funny to walk up and slap Elder Craft. As we are talking to this woman named Cecilia, the kid walks up next to us. We can't do anything because we are currently talking to this woman so we leave him there. Then it happened. I shook Cecilias hand and got out alive. Elder Craft goes to shake her hand and as he is shaking it, WHAP. The kid jumps and come down on E Crafts forearm with a burning hand of glory.

After this day, Elder Craft decided that he cannot continue living as Elder Craft and will need to change himself in order to function. That is how Elder Raft was born.

Also, while I was in Trujillo for Pday, I found a box of Corn Flakes that had a smaller box of Corn Flakes as a prize. They aren't creative enough to make toys here, haha.

Love you all,
Elder Gonzalez
