Ayyyyyy everybody, another week done in the mission and some fun stuff happened...i think!
This week wasn't too exciting, a lot of work done, and still a lot of work to be done. We had to abandon some investigadors this week because they weren't progressing. It was sad, but I guess it's just not their time to receive the gospel. That's something that I've learned out here, that everybody deserves the blessings of the gospel, but not all at the same time.
We do have 2 new investigadors that have great potential to be baptized. Their name's are Manuel and Fernanda. They have 2 kids and are really nice. They enjoy talking to us, and learning about the gospel. We've had some good lessons with them and they have a baptismal date for. Sadly they didn't come to church this week, but we're still going to visit with them and see how they progress. Manuel works in a taco place, so my companion and I are thinking of paying a visit to his taco place and eating some delicious tacos. Yummmmmmm.
Our two awesome investigators, Chuyita and Monica, came home from Mochis yesterday! This week we're going to teach them every day so that they can be baptized this saturday! We know we can do it, it's easy enough! They're still want to get baptized, thankfully. Some members helped them out last night, because on their way home, their tire exploded and they were stranded on the side of the road. Gratefully, all is well, and we're going to have a family home evening with them tonight. I'm so excited for saturday! We're going to have baptisms!
It's still hot, and it's going to be this way for about a month or two. It's nothing that I can't handle, even though I got seriously dehydrated..twice. I'm fine now, and I'm going to be extra careful now! I drink lots of water, and thankfully everybody offers us a glass of water, and we always gladly accept the invitation.
Today was fun, it wasn't too hot in the morning but it gradually got hot around, typical. Today, we did some yard work in front of our house, we had a little forest before. Now it's clean, more or less. It looks a lot better. We tried to get haircuts in the morning too, but every haircut place was closed, so we decided to go to Dairy Queen! ICE CREAM!!!!!! It was extra special for my companion, because he's never been to Dairy Queen. It doesn't exist in Ecuador. He was so surprised when he turned his blizzard upside down and saw that it didn't spill. It was awesome hahaha. After eating ice cream, we went to a market called Soriana, I call it Mexican Walmart, because it's just like a Walmart or Smith's. We bought some things for the house, like trash bags and dish soap, some food for the week, and we went home. Then we got some haircuts! Fun!
So, that's this week, we're going to see what happens this upcoming week. We do have some baptisms planned for this saturday, 2 from us, 1 from a companionship in our district, and 1 from another. That's great!!! It's going to be a fun week, I know it!
