Chinese buffet, ceramics

April 14, 2014
Coolest ceramic stuff in Tonala. It costs a ton of money.

We had an interesting experience with an investigator who is a Jehova's Witness. We were talking about their church after the lesson, and the LDS member said, if the Jehova's Witnesses had priesthood power, I'd be one of them. It was one of the funnier things I have heard in a good while.

This week had its fair share of ups and downs. Big down, The family of five is passing through some major problems right now, in which they are without work and searching for it all day, and when you have a family of five, and you are living day to day, every day gets harder. So pretty much they have told us to give them a lot of space, which was probably the most heartbreaking thing in the world. I felt like I had just been dumped by a girl - hard...

BIG UP. Last week, after Eduardo's wife left him, and we had a lesson with him, we gave him a blessing of comfort that everything would be alright. The next day he found new work in which he doesn't work on Sundays and he finishes working at 3pm every day. There is probably not a man I love more than him in the mission, (I will send a photo, he does not look happy, but he is!!!) He came to church yesterday, and bore his testimony. It was powerful.

Little Eduardo. Cutest kid.

There is a guy who helps us out a ton in the ward named Ivan Diaz Pacheco. He is the best. His wife lives in Indiana, and he lives here. He helps us out a ton coming with us to appointments and is super funny. He is a convert and I love his guts.

Elder Mar and I are super good. The kid eats a ton in the night. Last night he ate 2 sandwiches, 1 cup of noodles, 1 mango, some orange juice, some little candies, and something else. But I like him lots. We don't have a ton in common, but we get along great, have a good time, and he likes working hard. Also, he runs with me in the mornings which is grand.

I am ever so jealous of your Oregon trip. It seems like you guys do tons of trips together these days. I like that and envy that. But I am glad you got to have fun. Also, I think I like reading now, ever since the mission where you read and study for 3-4 hours every day, you learn to like it or hate it. I like it lots now, and want to read cool books some day, when they are approved.

Today we went to the Chinese buffet to eat. It was not very good. But what is better than a small Chinese lady speaking English? A small Chinese lady speaking Spanish.

Glad to hear that all is well.
Things to do.
Buy your preach my gospels, because it is now commandment, because it came from an apostle. study it.
Also your scriptures are important.
Also your prayers.

Have the best weeks ever. Love you all tons. and tons.
