'Hey all you people, hey all you people, hey all you people won't you listen to meeeee!
If you understand what that is from, I love you. Well, how's it goin out there people of society? Got some big news, so ! complete a year this Wednesday! lol Isn't that crazy? Hard to believe that I've been in this dang country for a whole freaking year hahaha. It's ok though because I'm lovin it!!!!! I have been thinking a lot lately and am really excited for what is to come both in the mish and despues. I've got big things planned so lets just wait and see what happens!
A couple really cool things have happened this week with the people we're teaching and with people we're trying to bring back to church! So first off, we found a couple really awesome people, they're jovenes of like 17, 19, and 23 years and they are super cool! What happened was we went to visit this inactive family who are all suuupper cool, they gave us chips and coke and everything. It was the whole enchilada (and that's something a lot bigger down here lol). But one of them is a 18 year old girl who is super dope, but she introduced us to her cousins!! So we started teaching them this week and it's going really good honestly. Their names are Lupita, Jesus, Maria and Jose. hahahah You can tell they come from a catholic family am I right? They really are super awesome! This week we had a cita with them, which got canceled because Lupita was sick but we sent her a message and told her that we're able to give blessing for the sick and we just got one word back, "Si". Hahaha so we went over and gave that girl a blessing! It was a really good experience for her and and she said she could really feel it. So then her mom shows up and gives us dinner and everything (yeehaw) and she starts going off about how she was reading and how she is going to go to church on Sunday with her inactive cousin. It was so exciting and everything made us so pumped!!!!! Let's see if we can get her in the water here soon hahah.
This Friday we had a family home evening with our converts and it was super cool because they planned it and everything, Obviously we taught still but whats new hahaha. They really are some awesome kids and their mom is really amazing too! She is just going through some things and isn't able to be baptized right now but sometime soon. It's coming hahaha. It's always nice to see the change in people out here. When we met these people they were doing everything but thinking about church, and now they are starting to get active in the ward and are really loving it!
I would say it was a pretty dang good week1 hahaha. Other than Monday when it rained a freak ton and all the power went out all night and the house flooded hahahaha. Pero allí vamos!!! It's going good and it's only going to get better.
I love you all and i wish you all a Merry Christmas in July!.
