Week 23 Santa Ana

Where in Mexico is your companion from? My companion is from Monterey Mexico it is like 3 hours from the U.S. He has taken 8 years of English and has travel to the U.S. a lot. 
When are transfers? Transfers are the 18 of this month. 

What was your spiritual experience of the week? We were teaching S. and it was amazing to see his response. We were teaching with one of the bishopric member, who has a wife in Utah. It was amazing to see the lesson. The counselor was teaching the investigator as if the counselor was God and he was looking down on S. and evaluating things. Wow the spirit was present and S. was listening really good. We ate dinner with the his family this week; we again ate Pollo con tajadas. His mother said she was really interested in the church, but she goes back and forth from the U.S. to work and his dad is working in Spain, so we will see what happens.  S. had really good friends in the church, so he will be ok. 

What are you studying in the mornings? In the mornings I have been reading and studying all the conference talks and other doctrinal question. I have almost finished reading all the conference talks, I think that I will finish this week so we will se how things go. 

How is your comps chickenchaga, is he feeling better? Has the rash gone away?  Yes the crazy sickness only lasted 3 days for him and all the symptoms have disappeared. 

What was the best meal you had this week? I think that the beast meal that I had this week was pollo con tajadas it is always very good and luckily the member that owns the restaurant gives us dinner 2 times a week. Wow is it good. 

Did the baptism go thru. No we have 2 baptisms scheduled for this week and they are both as solid as concrete. So next week I should have some pictures.  I don’t think that we will be baptizing them; we are having the members baptize them. But there will be 2 different baptismal services this Saturday so it should be a little fun. 

How many investigators came to church on Sunday?  We had 5 Investigators in sacrament meeting. We have been looking for some new investigators and we have been searching for inactive family’s to teach their children and activate them. We only had one complete family come today and well we found them by looking for names on the list of members. It is a single wife and 3 kids so it is a pretty good family. 

Did you have an opportunity to do any service last week? What was it and who was it for. I don’t remember if we had the opportunity to do any service last week. But we will see this week possibly painting a school.

How is the weather do I need a rain jacket and a sweatshirt for your area? You probably just need to bring a rain jacket that is breathable or an umbrella. Today it is close to 90 with real high humidity but that’s not hot at all.   When it gets hotter, are there less Mosquitos.  Yes there haven’t been mosquitoes today. 

What did you do for p day?  We played ping-pong and that is it. We don’t have permission to leave the zone and there is nothing to do. Did you play with other elders?  No just with Elder M.

Whose house is that with garments hanging on the line?
Oh we went on divisions with the zone leaders so I spent a night in this area. They had air conditioning. This is the house of the zone leaders and another companionship; it’s a really nice house. Yeah it is really cold in the bedroom.

Those pictures on the bridge are nice, good thing you didn't drop your camera.  
Who are all the boys in the pictures that look like missionaries?

One is A. T. our mission leader the other is E.
The one I took a picture of that was taking a picture is our investigator S., our future missionary de barrio, once he is baptized he will be called. He likes to leave and teach with us.

Did you get any letters?  Yes I got 3 packets of letters this week.   Tell everyone thank you for their letters. 

Have toy been using the blender?  Yes almost every day. I can make some good smoothies and milk shakes.  How big is your freezer for the ice cream.  I don’t use ice cream, all they use here is ice milk and the mix in and it turns out smooth.    Are mangos in season yet?  I think there coming on. But the bananas and piƱas right now aren’t on that much and they’re a little expensive.   What do you put in your smoothies?  Ice, Milk, Yogurt, Banana, Granola, Vanilla, Sugar or I have made some other crazy things like crazy and sometimes with hostess type cupcakes.

If you see the chips that I sent picture, buy them they are some of the best chips here.

I don’t have any more time but thank you for all that you do and I will have another week that doesn’t feel like a day here in the mission. Be safe and don’t get any weird ideas. Tell Madi good luck in basketball and to do her homework. Also tell every one that sent the letters thank you, I have read them all. Tell grandma thanks for her email. And thanks for all you guys go as my parents.
