Life in the Field: Busy Week in the Field!

This week was really good. We had really good numbers and two people came to church! We have new investigators and the work is progressing well.

This week was cool. We had a lot of lessons and we went to Patzquaro again. I went to Tacamabro as well. That was a trip! We went from Morelia to Patzquaro, because we had to bring some beds and tables to an apartment, so we went in a truck taxi, but gosh this guy was as dumb as bricks. While we were driving, he would slow down and stop the car and start greeting at girls... Freaking weirdo! Haha! He was super funny but man, weirdo. 

My comp and I went for some Starbucks this week!

So, I took some pictures of my area... it's hilly, and it has part of the city, and part of the hills which is cool. We walk by cows and horses at times. It's really different because our house is 15 min in bus from downtown, and it's 10 minutes walking from a bunch of cows and horses.... super weird but its fun!

Yesterday I ate menudo (beef stomach in a red broth!) for the first time... that was a struggle.... never again! Haha! We also ate gorditas, which are awesome. I love gorditas, 

Today we played some sports in the chapel. We played kickball, volleyball and some basketball. Overall, a good activity. It was sister Gonzales last P-day, because she goes home next Monday! I'm going home soon too! AHHH! It goes too fast. 

Today we have an appointment at 7:00 PM with one of our investigators. He wanted to baptize his daughter but his wife is a member, but he isn't. We read Moroni 8.... wow that was super crazy. I think it made him feel bad, because dang, that made me feel bad, and it was hard to tell him that he can't baptize her without the proper authority. Today we are going to talk about eternal marriage, so I think that will help lighten up the mood. 

I love working. I love the mission. I love MEXICO! Everything is possible here ;)

Love you all so much!

Life in the Field: Morelia Memories

This week was pretty good! On Monday night, we had some missionaries stay over at our house. It was pretty fun! We played Scum, which was awesome! I won a lot, and when we stopped playing, I was the King! My comp was the scum! Hahaha! Poor Elder Luna! It was a good night! 

I took a cool picture with a dog named Foster. He loves me, and hates my comp, but its chill. Life is good here! The owner of the dog is Jorge. He is a good friend here in the ward! 

We walked by the zoo and I saw a cool lion! I kinda want to go next week, I think we are going to go in the morning! I want to see if I can hold a tiger, or something cool like that!

We had a super funny lesson with an old guy name Angelito. He started to fart super loud and acted like nothing was happening! Hahahahaha! My companion started to lose it, and blamed his laughter on his dog, which made me start to laugh! It was an interesting lesson, and makes me laugh just thinking about it!

But the coolest thing this week was that we had two people come to church! #sucess!!! Working hard! We also have had some new investigators, and we have some less actives progressing! :) 

Elder Luna got super sick yesterday, but now he is better! We didn't work at all yesterday, so I spent a bunch of time studying Spanish and cleaning the house!

I got to see the Aqueduct of Morelia today! It's super big! I didn't take any pictures :( but, we ate Chilis, so I'm happy.

I love you all so much!

Life in the Field: More Morelia Fun!

Downtown Morelia
This week was really awesome! We had Zone Meeting which went super well and we went on divisions! I went to Patzquaro, which was awesome!

Last Monday our patio flooded so we had to bucket the water out... soooo crazy! We spent time fixing the drains and all is fine! 

On Wednesday, we had the Zone Meeting which went super well! I finally got my package, which I enjoyed! HEATH BARS ARE AMAZING! Haha! I miss those soooo much! Thanks parents :))))

Patzquaro is awesome! It's a pueblito, they call it "Pueblo Magico" because its amazing! I bought ice cream of Pasta, Elote and chocolate. It was awesome! Haha! Corn ice cream = best thing ever! I also got to take some cool pictures with a sword and some pictures in the streets! All the houses are the same, white and red. It's kinda funky, but cool! 

Today we played football, which was awesome! We also played basketball which was fun as well! My team always won! We are cool like that... We bought Morelia Monarcas jerseys, which makes us look legit. I was the only one who bought the original jersey colors. It was buy one get one free, so we all bought one! Four for the price of two! We each spent like 370 pesos, or about $20.00. Good price and it's original and the new jersey of this season!

The weather has been nice, I got burned a little on my neck playing football today because its so dang white!!!!!!!!! AHHH freaking collard shirts... 

Thanks for the love and support!

Life in the Field: Playground Fun!

This week was pretty legit! We worked hard and had some success. We have a new investigator named Rocio. We are hoping that she can go to church this Sunday. We also had some less actives come to church, which is always great!

This week went by fast! I played around on a spinning thing and ate it pretty hard. Haaha! That was funny! It's not everyday that you can play around on a playground and get hurt.... ;) 

I like my area! A lot of hills and the weather is nice! :) President has told two weeks in a row to enjoy Morelia! Next week, we are going to go to the zoo ;)

Our house is super nice! We HAVE CARPET!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY COW I CANT BELIEVE IT! Hahaha! We have two bathrooms, three bedrooms, and a new water heater! I like it!

Today we went bowling again, but with Elder Garcia, my ex comp, Elder Horne, and my comp Elder Luna. It was fun! After we ate at Carl's Junior, and I ate a ton! Haha! I ate the Mezcal burger/
