Happy Birthday Nana (8/4/14)

Hola todos!

Zihua me Gusta

I have a lot to share just because it’s been two weeks.

Sleeping on the bus

Sleeping on the bus

When we go to Guadalajara it’s about 150 dollars to go there and back by bus. It’s super nice. For 8 hours we pretty much talk and sleep, it’s pretty relaxing. There is a screen in front of us and if we weren’t missionaries we could watch movies, but we don’t. We went to Guadalajara this past week. We are 6 hermanas from Lazaro so it was fun.

Chivas pillows

Our pillows are Chivas pillows; they are the Mexico soccer team. It’s a good conversation starter. We found a couple future investigadores using them.

Hammocks

Also I’m sending come photos of things that I realized are normal to me now but I never told you about them. Everyone here has hammocks.

Also we normally don’t drink out of cups when we buy water on the street. It always comes in bags.

Future missionary

This week the elders in our ward had a baptism of a future missionary. I was asked to give a talk about 2 minutes before it started but that’s pretty normal.

This week we were lost up in the hills and found a little Catholic church and on their banner they had one of our photos of Christ; but it’s OK, we can share.

8-4-14 juntos

Today is cambios but we are staying here. Only one elder is leaving and we are combining our district with another. So juntas somos Zihua. Forever.

It turns out that our investigator Pedro is a member. He was baptized about 10 years ago. So we are helping to reactivating them. Our area is progressing. Yesterday we had 6 investigadores at church and 5 have dates to be baptized.  It’s super exciting and we are working super hard every day. My shoes are evidence of that.

I love all the pictures you sent me! The color fest and your hike look like fun! When I got back we have to do it all again! And you went to see the Blue Angels?!! Why do you do everything fun without me?! It’s only been my dream to go back and see the Blue Angels since I was like 7. But it’s OK. I forgive you all.

Have fun this week. Stay safe. Love you!
