Que buena semana! - What a great week!

Monday, May 25, 2015

So, this week was super awesome and it had a finetastic ending!  Elder Cayo and I were super happy with our Missionaries last night! 
With all of our lessons and study times and miracles that have been awesome I don’t know where to start this week. We start with a cool and weird experience. 
We taught a woman whose son is a Pastor in the Triple M church. As we finished the lessons which was super awesome! The spirit was definitely there! The son comes out. And looks at the Book of Mormon.  And says oh you’re reading your book about Joseph Smith… if I pull out a book about Martin Luther will you read it? We didn’t say anything.  We have learned you can’t talk to these people.  Because they know that what we do is true.  They just don’t care.  I felt a dark, almost evil feeling as he spoke.  As if the Spirit was testifying of his many lies.  It was worse than the time we were in the Community of Christ Church.  After waiting and biting my tongue for a while, we testified that we haven’t said anything but the truth, that he can deny it if he wants.  But to remember that the pharisees also denied the truth… so be careful.  Wow, I have never left a lesson so motivated!  I don’t understand why someone would be so against the Bible they teach from!  It made me Very grateful for my testimony. Very grateful for the church that encouraged me to get one. Very grateful that I can find the answers to the questions I have and later that I can "double check" with God to see if it's Correct. What a blessing. 
Later the Ward started to help us out a bunch!  We did a family night in the house of a CR (recent convert) and we had like10 people with us! 
Then our investigators came to church!  And seem to be making great friends there!

Coco referenced seeing Juaquin Costa in a video.  He said that he understood him speaking Spanish and that it was weird because it had never happened before.  

Juaquin and his family have been family friends for many years.  He usually speaks English when he Coco is around, but Coco has heard him speak Spanish plenty and until last week never understood it.  Juanquin and his family now live in Peru and I sent the blurb from Monday's letter to his wife.  Here is the reply.....

That is so funny! yes he was in a video for area leadership training. 

I forgot to tell you that a couple of weeks ago I attended the mission president seminar. All the mission president's in the area were there and we were in meetings all the time so I couldn’t identify Coco’s mission President but during the wives' meeting I saw his wife and told her I knew Elder Glassett and she told me "Oh Elder Glassett!  He is an excellent missionary!  You know…works hard, always smiles, never complains, the best kind!  Tell his parents they should be proud of their son!!"

Well contrary to all that I thought this week did NOT kill us.. IT’S A MIRACLE

We started the week out in Huancayo where we had a conference… I was there with my USA wool knit tie of course haha…. I think President thinks I'm crazy…but it's okay because I know I am… LET ME TAKE A MOMENT TO SAY SORRY FOR THE FACT THAT THE SHIFT KEY DOESN’T HAPPEN TO WORK IN THIS COUNTRY…

Anyway, this week, we got back from Huancayo on Miercoles. And had a MultiZone PDay where we played soccer and volleyball.  Erin, I could probs beat you at volleyball now HA. Then on Thursday we had the MultiZone where President came and we had a big lunch and watched Meet the Mormons. It was awesome. Then we had to clean the capilla… which was pretty dirty because Mama Henderson made her brownies and it is a fairly common thing that while eating said browneis you lose control of your body and start to dance because those brownies are soooo dang good. I do not know how she does it at all….

Friday was a doozie.. because we had Emergency transfers in Tingo so we had to send a missionary there and take one out AND APPARENTLY WHEN WE PLAN FOR 8 O'CLOCK IT ACTUALLY MEANS 9 THIRTY WHICH IS ACTUALLY REALLY FRUSTRATING..  BOOO.  But, in the end everything went smoothly I guess..

Then we had a special conference on Sunday about ward council… also in a video I saw Juaquin Costa… so that was cool… but he was speaking Spanish and I understood… and that was weird..that hasn’t happened yet…
We just found out that a less active is actually not a member… So she's getting baptized soon. Hhahahaha oh Peru…

Love you all

Crazy story!

Monday, May 11, 2015

Hello Family and others who read this!

I have had a pretty crazy week!  But I only have time to share one story!!!!!!!!!  But it’s so cool!!!!  So Elder Reis was in Huancayo to pick up his new born baby boy… (He’s training) haha

So I was with Elder Bautista… a Colombian who lived in Chicago for 2 years… and we found ourselves surrounded by triple ms (movement missional mundial...) …. Which are more ridiculous than Jehovah’s witnesses…

So, they start attacking me saying if you can’t pull the name Mormon out of the bible the the book of Mormon isn’t true.  To which I said… if you can’t pull the name of Jesus Christ out of the old testament the new testament isn’t true… haha their faces holy cow…. Soooo funny!

Why do you think nobody believed in Christ??? Because the Old Testament calls Him Jehovah!!! (Isa 53:3 -6) Haha so after they saw that they weren’t going to have any luck with that they just started attacking us say that we do baptisms for the dead and the bible does talk about that! But once again…. It does…we read I explained and in the end they just didn’t want to admit that they were wrong…so we left and as we were walking Elder Bautista found a paper on the ground… three actually… the first one he said… hey Glassett I think that’s a scripture mastery paper…. Then… hey one more!!! Then he finally picked up the last one! And guess what scripture it was!!! 1 Cor 15:27 haha it was like God said…Is this your card? Haha that was the coolest thing ever!

I'm Good but I have to go!

What a week. hay cambios? no lo creo!!! (There are changes? I don't think so!!!)

Monday, May 4, 2015


WOW!!! I think that for the first time in my misión the folks back in Utah have had a crazier week than I did! Which makes me proud of you all. YOU BEAT PERÚ!!!

But really.  My week went by really smoothly…. Minus an Elder in my zone who baptized someone who wasn’t in his area and everyone was pretty upset. Haha the good part was that the other Zone Leader was Elder Garcia (MI CAUSA) so it was okay. In the end we had a good week!

Funny story. We flagged down a moto taxi the other day and after he had stopped and I had told him where we were going he said…. I don’t have any gas…..WHAT THE HECK MAN???? IF YOU DON’T HAVE GAS WHY DID YOU STOP????? DID YOU THINK THAT FOR SOME RANDOM REASON MY COMPANION AND I HAD GOTTEN ALL DRESSED UP TO TAKE A TAXI TO THE GAS STATION WITH YOU????? HAHA that made me laugh really hard and contemplate the human mind…

I want to say something. Every time Hna. Henderson bears her testimony with her broken Spanish… she says. I know that death is not the end. I know that to be true...
Every trial, hardship, addiction, trouble, pain, every time you have felt empty, forgotten, lonely, or unloved. It's just another opportunity to respond based on the principles and teaching of him who has felt all of those thing and more. It is in the hardest moments. Then and only then do we look to Christ. Because then and only then do we truly understand why we need a savior. Nobody would look for food if they didn’t need it. And in that same way nobody will put their faith into action without understanding that He and only He has the power to stop the fall. Only he can catch us. Only He has the power to do this.  

DyC 101:16 Therefore, let your hearts be comforted concerning Zion; for all flesh is in mine hands; be still and know that I am God.
