So this past week we got to go to XALAPA for a capacitacion de nuevos. So I got to take TWO really awesome naps on the bus ride to and from Xalapa. It was great. I also read a book called Our Search for Happiness by Elder Ballard. Everyone should read this book! Whether you´re a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or not. Actually, Especially if you´re not. Its a good one.
This week was great! We started teaching a girl named Karla, shes super awesome and really sweet and she came to church with us and ah... seriously shes so so sweet. She sends us a text almost every morning telling us to have a good day. She just makes my heart smile.
Also we found a new FAMILY to teach with the help of Hna Krisanta (a really awesome member with a really adorable little boy named Oscar). Yeah! The family is Carmen, Nestor, and Florentino. Carmen and Nestor aren't married but they're all ready and willing to get married!! We´ve already gotten them some of the paperwork and everything to seal the deal. They're lots of fun. Hna Perez has a lot of fun joking around with them. And i have a lot of fun laughing with them but I don't really say much because me no speak no spanish. Okay that's only kind of true. But yeah, they went to church too! They were all ready and dressed up when we stopped by their house to pick them up and go to church! Good stuff.
Unfortunately Carlos and Epidia and Lucino didn't go to church. Hna Perez and I are really sad because we think Carlos might be trying to ignore us lately. We´re not sure though, i really hope not because he was such a good investigator!
Some more fun things that happened:
1. had to eat elote again (corn with all the gross mayo and cheese and chile) I was really hoping id never have to eat that stuff again but Hna Krisanta bought us some so i had to eat it. It was really funny because there was a ton of chile on it so i was like... bawling while I ate the corn but I didn't want to be rude and not eat it. She saw me crying and gave me a napkin to wipe the chile off. I still didn't like it even without the chile though. Lol.
2. OKAYnight at Hna Perez wakes up and starts rambling on in spanish and i have absolutely no idea what shes saying because its and I cant understand spanish for the life of me that early in the morning. But all of the sudden she starts doing pushups on her bed and I'm like UH WHAT IS GOING ON WHY ARE YOU DOING PUSHUPS GO TO SLEEP but she just keeps talking and i was so so confused and so i just ignored her and went back to sleep. In the morning I told her about it and she just started cracking up because she thought that had been a dream but yeah she remembered doing the pushups. like.. what? she just wakes up, does some pushups and then goes back to sleep. It made no sense.
scripture to ponderize ¨believe in God believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth. believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you and now if you believe all these things see that ye do them.¨ Mosiah 4:9-10
Sorry for the typos. Have faith in the Lord and ACT on that faith. Be humble, trust in the Lord because He knows our needs better than we do.
LOVE YOU ALL!
