I got all your emails today so that is awesome! Your trip sounded amazing! I love the pictures. So that is super funny about the homeless guy giving you tickets haha. Holy lifetime memories right there! Aaaannndd you got to take dad somewhere he has never been! HAHA the day has COME! Sounds amazing! I am definitely wanting to go there. Especially after I heard that you saw HUNDREDS of my favorite animal!!
I am fed by members probably 3 times a week! It is one of my favorite parts of the week. It is just really fun to get to know them, and they make really good authentic food and it is just fun. Like I MADE MY FIRST TORTILLA. An Authentic Real Tortilla. Soo good. I am writing the recipe down so it can be my new rice and soup when I am older!
We are watching general conference in our chapel! I am super excited I made a paper count down chain haha.
My Spanish is getting better! I am still reading in the LDM and I made another life bucket list item to read the Santa Biblia! In Spanish that would be soo cool!! I get general gists of what people are saying and I can say a lot but I freeze up a lot - shy symptoms and different language and not knowing what to say battling in my brain. #shyprobs #nose #loqueasay #lookslikeispelledabodypart #funny.
People like that I am learning Spanish. They always tell me that is really cool. I am really lucky to be able to speak Spanish all the time though, there is Spanish everywhere which is amazing!
So we are still doing a lot of tracting because we are still trying to find interested people. I really am glad mom you sent me that advice. Because I feel like we almost haven't been trying hard enough! So I will totally share that! Study that! But ya I am having a good time still. We are realizing that contacting is MUCH better than tracting so we are riding our bikes more and talking to every person we see. Seriously every person. I have probably met over 500 new people. So many. And it is interesting to learn about them.
We met this Hindu man. He invited us right into his house and told us about his life! He works for Toyota now. He started washing cars when he got here and now he is their top quality specialist mechanic. He went and got an award he had received and showed us. I loved he was able to go so high up. He was also in an arranged marriage and he showed us his prayer room! The idols were beautiful and it just felt ancient. I thought it was super cool. And then we got to share a little what we believed. Loved it.
We also met this guy walking around, and we talked to him. He was like, "I went to your church once! Now I have food storage!!" hahahaha. Go us! #survivors.
We also met a native American! So cool to learn about religions and then share ours and ask questions.
One time we asked a guy if he had neighbors that spoke Spanish and he was like no I am a hermit I don't really talk to my neighbors. Hermana Skidmore was like "Hey want a card for our website? Hermits love the internet!" hahahaa I thought it was so funny but he still didn't want it.
Lots of people here speak Spanish. The people are really nice, and so happy with like any situation. Super chill. We were talking to this one lady at her door and we asked her if she had faith in Jesus Christ and she was like ya come see. In her house was a wax figure of Jesus on the cross. hahaha. Yep.
But this week was amazing because we found 3 different families to teach in 2 days!!!!! wowowowowowow. I am so excited!
We don't really teach a lot of sit down lessons it is always outside and random. So I am learning to improvise! Its Friday Preach the Gospel day, let’s get up and roll! On the fly BOM BOM BOM (haha Book of Mormon)
Anyways it is going good!
Thanks for the emails and tell dad thanks too.
TELL EVERYONE HI for me.
