Hey everyone!!!

This week was kind of crazy but still good. This week was crazy
because we haven't been able to get contact again with C. and W. They
have been working a lot and didn't come to church. We are going to try
and stop by tonight and see if we can catch them at home.
Missionary friends

We found a really cool new investigator named P. He is really
interested. When we came by to teach the first lesson after we found
him tracting he had already read part of the Book of Mormon and had
watched the restoration video. He seems really interested and we are
excited about him.

The family of six kids are doing well. It's really funny teaching them,
surprisingly they pay attention and seem really
interested. Everyone is getting ready for school this week so its kind
of crazy here.
We found I. at Why I Believe

This week we had zone conference, which is like an 8 hr long meeting.
It was really good though, we learned a lot, and focused in teaching
the restoration. It was really helpful because we got to teach the
restoration a few times this week.

Today for zone activity we did a scavenger hunt at the mall:)

Gracias por todo!

Hola!!!!! Happy pday!
I love DC

This week was pretty great and pretty crazy! We started off this week
helping our neighbor clean her shed, and she tried to teach the
neighbors dog to salsa dance to yellow submarine. It was pretty fun

Our investigator P. is recovering from her surgery and is doing really
well. We had a great lesson with her and she is progressing
right now! She came to church and loved it, she even already knew
the bishop so it was really cool.

We got some things that are struggling with C. and W. so we had to
take them off date. They have a few things that they are working with
right now, and C. has been really sick this week. We stopped by to
help the kids make lunch but she was too sick to see us.

We did a lot of tracting and finding this week and we found some cool
new people!

We also did yoga with our less active member and then later that day
she had us over and made us this really good apple cantaloupe drink
from Paraguay.

Our other family of investigators are doing great, liking the lessons,
and just got an adorable 7 week old puppy. It was pretty cute!

This week we went to the city and Chinatown for pday!

Hey everyone!!! It has been a good, hot, rainy, buggy week here in
Olney Maryland.

For our investigators C. and W. are doing well. They are still coming
to church, and it is kind of an adventure getting their family of five
a ride every week to church, but C. is preparing to get her license
and they already have a car ready.

We did a lot of tracting and finding this week so we have some new
people and families with appointments for next week that we are pretty
excited about.

This Sunday was crazy, we had 6 investigators come and a ton of less
actives. A lot of them had kids and we were running around like crazy
trying to find all the classes for all the primary kids, but it was
super cool. A less active family we have been working with finally
came after many, many, years. None of the members knew who they were but
they had a good time and it went well, and met a lot of members.

This week while we were tracting, a lady told us to come in and didn't
want to hear our message but wanted to sell us these pastries that she
makes from Honduras. They were like a big roll with meat and
vegetables inside. We told her we didnt have money, but she made us
come in and she said we could have one for free, and come back later
and buy more. Then she tried to give us coffee. Her daughter is a
member, so we will probably go back and have to buy some then. haha
Mount Pleasant reunion

For pday we went and played sand volleyball with other missionaries in
this area, then we went to CafeRio!

Muchas gracias por todo!!!

Hey everyone!!

This week was great, with tons and tons of rain. It poured almost
everyday... But it was good at least we were able to find a lot of
people home.

C. and W. are doing good, they hare having a hard time accepting and
living the word of wisdom, but we are going to meet with them and set
goals with them. They are liking church and everything and we are hoping
to get them committed.
Our district meetings mostly consisted of eating watermelon

The R. family is great. Mom and all six kids love the lessons and its
pretty funny and crazy teaching all seven of them. They really
like it and are having fun learning.

This week we planted flowers for a member, and did some service up at
the farm that works with people with special needs.

We went tracting this week and a family let us in to share our
message. The little girl got some blankets for us because we were wet,
and then filled up giant tupperware with soda for us to drink, it was
really funny. They said we could come back and share more next week.
