Ice Cream and Hot Dogs

I ate ice cream and corn dogs for dinner on Thursday.... 
So I am really excited because Pearlas esposo is back from his work trip and we have a noche de hogar planned with them for tonight. So pray for them! We are going to invite them to be baptized and will be teaching about the Book of Mormon it should be a really powerful lesson. They are doing SO good. They are such a prepared family. They have been praying together every night and are well on their way to 2 Nephi :) We just have to get the husband on board and they are set. 
Church yesterday was a joke because Mexico played at 11 (which is when church starts) so there was only like 15 people at church. But we still got 4 investigators there! Jaime came again and this time he brought with him his friend Guzman who we have taught a couple of times. Haha Guzman is SO funny. Apparently he is super rich in Mexico and owns like 3 huge ranches and his own business but he had to move here because a couple of things went wrong and there were people who were trying to kill him for his money? IDK something crazy like that. He came walking in to church with this huge cowboy hat, wearing all denim, with his way nice cowboy boots just to give you a good picture haha. Everyone loved him. The members in this ward are so great. They are always so friendly to the investigators who come to church. 
We had to say goodbye to the Crawfords on Tuesday :( The Drakes came in on Saturday and we are going to meet them this next Tuesday. I know I will love the Drakes. But I am going to miss the Crawfords so much, I was bawling saying goodbye to them. President Crawford gave us all hugs. 
We also taught this woman named Adela a couple of times this week. She has been kind of a toughie but we had such a powerful lesson with her on Friday. She has been having a couple of small doubts about things we have taught her but we invited her to be baptized for July 20th and she said yes! She is SO excited. We had the bishop's wife with us and she was so awesome and I think the lesson got her more excited about missionary work. 
Love you all so much!

  1. It blows me away how fast you can go from teaching the first lesson to inviting someone to be baptized. It seems like it would be such a huge life-changing decision, but I guess when you know it, you know it! We have Spencer's after-farewell gathering all planned now. Next it will your homecoming! I don't know about you, but time is going pretty fast for me. You are having such an awesome mission and are so lucky to be working full time in this great work. Keep it up!
