A couple of crazy weeks

                                                                          Written June 27, 2016

What a great couple of weeks!  We have been working our butts off because everyone wants us to visit them and then we have to find time to find new people to teach and we have to teach the investigators that are close to baptism and then the ones who were being taught but still haven’t gone to church. It’s super fun here and my comp is learning so quickly

So two weeks ago. I went to a meeting on Monday and Tuesday we received our comps in Guadalajara and came to our area, got here at about 8:30 and unpacked a lil.  Got a little house which is awesome in a private neighborhood and there are guards that we pay 20 pesos a week. So you can be calm mom.

We have been going with the members and they give us some really, really tasty food. Here if I don’t eat healthy at home or do exercise I will get fat haha so I’m doin that. We just got done buying fruits and veggys and my backpack weighs like 40 lbs. haha 

So the week after that we went to the houses of a couple members and we taught them to say prayers in English and they were all really excited. We taught a couple investigators who have a while in teaching and they decided to set a date for baptism the 9th of July. Only one of those dates is still standing.

This week we had to go to Guadalajara and when we went we went in the most luxurious bus and sat in captains chairs and the tickets cost 580 pesos and that’s almost all I had hahaha so I just got money today. But on the way home President Egginton gave us a ride because they were passing through. Super cool to be with him for a couple hours.

We found a new investigator, his name is Tony and he’s 21 years old. We went with him and he said he didn’t believe in God. Then said that God is like an imaginary friend but when you talk to him and call him God people don’t judge you. So we had a lesson and when we told him about the first vision he said "Are you serious?" and then when he said the last prayer it was a great prayer and when he finished he said "whoa" and asked when we were gonna come again. He is reading the Book of Mormon it’s just hard for him to get up and go to church. But he is working on it. He accepted a baptismal date for the 30th of July but it fell because he didn’t go to church but when he starts going to church we will help him with another.

Anyways, it rains a lot at night but not as much during the day. It’s a great place to be in the mission field. I miss you all a lot but I’m having more fun over here haha. I love this place and honestly Mexicans are awesome, they have big hearts and are very respectful towards us. Except the guys who dumped beer on us last week... you should probably disregard that comment mom hehe

In my studies yesterday and today I read the talk "beware of pride!" by Ezra Taft Benson. Everyone should read it. It’s a super big eye opener. We are all super big sinnners in pride.

Love you all!!
