lets see if i can try and sum everything up pretty quickly. so basically, we got out and taught a lot for the first time in forever! this lady named maria showed up at church 2 sundays ago and bishop pulled us out of class and was like "hey guys this lady says she wants to get baptized" and so that was AWESOME! turns out she came with her son and his family, which are all less actives, but the mom isnt a member. she had already been going to church with her son in some other place but then moved here and weve started teaching her! and she is just amazing! its so wonderful how one can get really really really discourage at times (especially in the offices) and then you can see the miracles of the lord placing a really prepared person in your path and i just feel really blessed for that. its like she craves the teaching we have to give.
de hecho, shes supposed to get baptized on the 30th! so keep her in your prayers, and lets all hope that this turns out well. were actually gonna go teach her again tonight.
so hopefully you guys remember i told you about what a trompo was a few weeks ago, the mexican top thing, but the little kid thats obsessed with trompos actually has about 25 of them. he told me he has 9 out of 10 of the "best" trompos except for one, which is called the mini car. and it just so turned out that i had the mini car haha!! so i decided to give away my trompo to this little kid and it made his night. i think im coming to learn that the greatest happiness one can feel, or better the most you can receive comes from giving away. were basically best friends now.
this week we got to eat with the messerly family, which is a senior couple here in the wards, and we got to eat roast, and mashed potatoes, with rolls, and then brownies for dessert. i was basically in the united states again for an hour.
i had my first experience in uber this past sunday. i highly recommend it, its pretty fancy. but this uber ride came after a -- hour wait in the airport.
5 WHOLE HOURS ON EASTER SUNDAY
it was kinda miserable. but we were able to explore the whole airport (terminal 1 actually which is the fancy international terminal and it was pretty fun to be able to spend that time with elder sweat. ive been to the airport twice this week now if anyone was wondering.
to end this short email, it rained SO MUCH this week. we actually had some pretty decent thunderstorms this week which was pretty cool. but what was not cool, is that it alwas started to rain as soon as we went out to work and teach. so theres this bridge that we always have to cross to go into the little area that we work in, and this bridge only has one drain at the very end of the bridge, so the entirly thing floods almost up to the curb and its CRAZY. and the cars have no mercy and just drive through as fast as they can. so the other night we try to find a gap in the cars to run across, and we find a little space and start to run down this tiny side walk in the dark, and were almost to the end when this huge land cruiser comes through and just soaks us. it was miserable, but we enjoyed our selves. im just glad my phone still works. then we started to help this guy clean out the drain because it was getting clogged and everything and then another car speeds by and splashes us in the face. but hey thats just what we do, and i think its more fun when its raining.
sorry it was so short this week guys! but i hope everyone enjoye their easter weekend remembering the savior and what hes done for us!!
love you guys
