It's been a full week of events and new ideas here in Cliza, and it's making my companion and I super excited for the weeks to come! Things are progressing here greatly!Here a bit of a cool story: Wednesday night of this week, at about , we went to go visit one more person before we turned in for the night. About a block before we got to the investigators house, we saw smoke coming from a different house, but just assumed it was from an oven, since there was only a tiny bit. So we kept walking, and knocked the door of the investigator... as he answered the door, we turned back, and there was a cloud of smoke so big nothing was visible! The house was burning down! We rushed over to the house, asking the number for Bomberos, or the fire department.. Cliza is so small, there is no fire department. So everyone ran down a few blocks to a small river with buckets to put it out, us included. What makes it worse is the house also has a furniture store in it. So everything was flammable, sofas, beds, closets, chairs, all made of wood and cotton. The fire suprisingly got put out relatively quickly and nobody was hurt from it.
I'm starting up an English class again here, and because of the people I know, it's going to be big. We have an open shop right on the square to teach, thanks to our pensionista, and I recently met someone who works for the television in my little Pueblo, Cliza. He said if we make a commercial, we can play it for one month for 20 bolivianos. So we might be making a commercial for it and everything! This could be big for the church. I know not everyone will get baptized, but everyone will know about the church. I'm really excited for it all.
