O Sea, Hay Tamales

This last week was superb! I can't even begin to tell you. We met all of our lesson goals. Every week we set goals to work towards, and this week we met them all! We worked so hard, and were so surprised to see our end results at church yesterday!  Woot woot!

The members of this ward really stepped it up and visited with us every day! We were thrilled! We also got permission to work in the other half of our ward, which means we had a lot of great references!

This past week we met with a man, he's a less active, he told us how he was offended and would never come back to church again. He basically told us not to visit him but, to visit the people that wanted us or needed us. Then, the next day we went on visits with our ward mission leader and we found the same man in the street, he suggested that we go talk with him and I told him no, he doesn't want us.


We went and talked to him and set up and appointment...which we happened to forget about the next day, oops!   Then on Sunday we were waiting in the door and HE WALKED IN!!! I couldn't believe my eyes. He was a completely changed man. He told us sorry, that he wasn't at home yesterday, he had another commitment. THE LORD IS SO GOOD.

We have been working with another YSA he has a tough heart, and pierced ears. We talked to him and invited him to church. He told us he couldn't come because he had work. Then, during the first song he walked in and get this, without his earrings! I couldn't believe my eyes!

We also had THREE investigators come as well, they were the three that I never thought would come either. Truth is we dropped two of them because we thought they were so disinterested but, now we are going to visit them this week! I can't wait to see what June holds for us! The President really wants us to baptize EVERY week in June, and we are thinking that we can do it!

One of these investigators told us that she knew  the Church is true, everything that we had taught. I can't wait, we are going to visit with her this week and challenge her to be baptized in June. Cross your fingers, and PRAY!

Today we got to go to the beach! It's about 30 minutes away but, a member lives there, and she taught us how to make TAMALES! They are sooo good, if you forget the fact that there is a liter and a half of pig fat in them! We made 60 and our fridge is stocked! Mira Mar, the beach, is what I thought Mexico was going to be like. I am thinking we should all invest in a Vacation home! It's beautiful and private!

I have learned a lot of good lessons this week, and I am so grateful for the chances that we have to better ourselves!

Have a wonderful week!
