Good day earthlings!
What's good in the hood? I had an awesome week as usual down here in the boonies of Mexico. We have been visiting a ton of people and the fruits are showing! Something really awesome is that we are visiting that one chubby kid named Alan, suuuuper good kid hahaha probably like the cutest little fat kid I've ever seen in my life. So we went with Alan this week and we have it all planned for him to get baptized next week! It was awesome. He asked us, "So what do I have to do to enter into the kingdom of God?" hahahaha It's like you've gotta be kidding me! So we read with him John 3:5 and showed him that baptism is the only way. When we told him that he could get baptized next week his face just lit up! It was so cool hahaha Really a good kid. I forgot to take a picture with him but what can you do? lol.
Yesterday was a jam packed day. We were sitting here in the offices in the morning and we get a call from the hermana who we were going to eat with and she asks us "Hey elders when can i come pick you up?" So we were like what the heck? Why is she gonna pick us up? hahah So she comes and picks us up for the food and takes us to this seafood place. Holy sack! It was amazing! They ordered us sooo much freaking food haha A nice giant shrimp cocktail, empanadas de queso y shrimp, and a tortilla rellena de queso y a fish called peje-lagarto which is so good! We were a little spoiled if you know what I'm talking about?
Then last night we had the opportunity to do a noche de hogar with one of the familias that we are trying to reactivate and with some people we are teaching. By the beard of Zeus it was the best one ever! So, what we did was we read about the dream of Lehi and the tree of life and holding to the iron rod. Good Gandhi they loved it! We explained all of the symbolism and then after they had to draw their own version of the dream and it was so awesome! Three of them had never even heard of the Book of Mormon and they pretty much drew perfectly the dream of Lehi hahaha. Such a good night honestly. Then to top it all off, they invited us for tacos! hahaha You know it's a good night if you finish it off eating tacos.
Such a good week and we're hoping we see some good things come from it! Well, that's about all I've got this week. hahaha Oh, and also I ate a Krispy Kreme donut today that Presidente and Hermana Whitworth brought back from Mexico City! It was dope!!!!
Love you all!!! Adiooo
