So this week was sooo hard but sooo sweet!!! We went hard! haha We found 5 new investigators!! Literally everything possible happened to us this week!! So Monday we met a sweet latino family Hernandez. His mother in law goes to our branch but he goes to the english ward with his family. He is nuts but its funny. He calls all the hispanics laminitas or laminites and says they are always late for everything!! So we set up a party for couples last friday night and while he was waiting for them to arrive he got his disco ball out and blasted Turn Down for What and the sub was sooo beautiful!! haha He just started blasting all this solja boy and wobble and all these songs and starts dancing and has us film him so he can send it to an ex missionary. hahaha he is hilarious pretty crazy tho. I wish my words could better describe what went down but no amount of words can have you fully capture the image of his dance moves that will forever be engraven in my memory... not a good thing... haha... then we also had some drunk guys we delt with. I talked to a homelss guy for 5 min a guy that had been living in the church for 5 weeks and then one day the bishop comes and says there is someone here that shouldnt be and they find him!!! i cant believe he dodged the members for 5 weeks straight! But now he just chills outside and the members wanna put him in jail... youd think theyd wanna help him?? but idk thats the english work haha As far as our missionary work it was so sick!! the members here are awesome!!! We are becoming pretty good friends with them. We helped set up a wedding but couldnt go to it but that was last friday and then we are litterally contacting like crazy to try and meet new ppl. We have met a ton of pregnant teens. One 14 year old we gave a blessing to last week and then another one we talked to in the street... so weird. Sundays are the best in the mornings cuz this family makes these Giant and i mean Giant pancakes for us to eat with strawberries, peaches, blueberries, platanos, whipped cream, dulce de leche and of course maple syrup. When i get older i definately wanna get a tradition going for the missionaries to come over at least once a week. This family is famous around the mission for these pankakes cuz they are literally so huge!!! And missionaries rarely ever eat breakfast so it'll be cool! Oh this week we get to go to the Washing DC temple, last week we did babtisms with the branch so that was sweet but this week we get to go thru a session. We werent allowed to do the baptisms and i forgot my temple reccomend... so pres wasnt too happy with that haha but i won't forget it again!!! Man there are so many cool things that went down but ya its hard, it's sooo tiring but it is sooo fun!! and rewarding!! Work hard and love one another that is our goal for this week!! Hope you all have a great week!!
