|4th of July craziness|
It's kinda weird to think that last Monday was the 4th of July. It was a super awesome P-Day. After we went in for the night we had our own little 4th of July celebration. We got some KFC and then threw a frisbee around for a little. After frisbee, we played baseball in our apartment with some foam balls and bat. It was super fun, and Elder Harman and I won in overtime! So that was super cool. It was a super fun night, kind of a nice change from the normal routine, but it was super good to get back into doing missionary work the next day.
We've taught some pretty awesome people this week. We taught this guy named Jose Lopez and his son Brian. They both seem to have some pretty good interest. They want to learn and are very willing to listen. We've got another lesson scheduled with them tomorrow. We also taught Geraldo and Gizel again. They're pretty cool, but if they don't accept a baptismal date here soon we'll have to drop them. We also taught Socorro, who loves the idea of Christ coming to the Americas. He loved the picture of Christ with the Nephites.
We had another amazing lesson with Daniel and Lucia this week. A pretty recent convert, Hermano Dominguez, came out with us to the lesson and bore an amazing testimony. He also said that he would be willing to do anything for them. Hermano Dominguez is getting the Melchizedek Priesthood this week, and then their family will be going through the temple soon.
We've got some really cool people we're teaching and I'm really stoked for this upcoming week. Sadly last week the other two Elders in our apartment moved out, so now Elder Harman and I live alone. We have a ton more space now, but it's not quite the same. For those of you who are Office fans we had a couple extra desks so we made a Mega Desk. I'll send a pic.
We met a guy last night who was pretty interesting. Great guy and super friendly, just had some funny ideas. He promised us that by the end of the year we would be non denominational. Then he continued by saying that he had a dream that the Hispanics were plotting to take over the world. He told us that our church was doing the right thing "recruiting" Hispanics, so that way when they take over they'll let our church be, or something like that. He also told us about a time in his life where he had more desire to eat humans than animals. His reasoning was that animals had never done anything to him and humans are mean and rude. I'm glad that phase had passed by the time we knocked on his door. It was pretty funny. He was a really awesome guy though, just had some strange ideas.
I think that's it for the week. Love you all!!!
