It Finally Happened

Happy Thanksgiving! It's this week, right? I don't know, we don't celebrate it here.

It was a great week here in the Pueblo. Our investigators are learning a lot. We love them.

I ate menudo for the first time this week. Yup. It finally happened. But I don't know if it was legitimate, because it tasted fine.

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Milagro- miracle. As in, "Wednesday was a miracle. I'll tell you about that shortly."
Amable- kind/polite. As in, "The people here are so kind. It's a great place to be."
Revolución- revolution. As in, "November 20th is when Mexico celebrates their Revolution. We had a ward activity with some delicious food."
La vida eterna- eternal life. As in, "Eternal life is a gift that our Heavenly Father gives to those who keep His commandments and repent throughout the course of our life. Eternal life is more than living forever, it's living forever in the presence of our Heavenly Father and growing to become like Him."

So on Tuesday, our minutes on our phone ran out. When that happens, we can only call other missionaries. Our phones reload the 19th of every month. So Tuesday night we were planning for Wednesday, and didn't have any appointments planned between 2 and 6pm. So we decided to go to an area of the Pueblo where we have some investigators without phones who we can hardly ever find and look for all of them.
It was a miracle. We found 4 of those people in those 4 hours. That never happens. It was awesome.

Also. When I was here before, one of the young men from this ward left on his mission and gave us the referral of one of his friends. We knocked on his friend's door a lot, and he never answered us.
A young woman from the ward left on her mission 2 weeks ago, and she left us the same referral. But this time, she told her friend how to get to his house. That friend came with us to find him, and when we got there, I realized that we had knocked on the door of the house across the street all the times that we had gone before. We taught him a lesson, and he's really interested in learning more about what is friends are teaching on their missions.

Another day in the week, an appointment cancelled and we had a bit of time before our next appointment. So we just started walking down a street that felt good. We passed by a lady doing some yard work and offered to help her. She said no (nobody ever lets us help them in their yard). But she asked what we were doing, and we explained that we are missionaries, and a bit of the message we share. She invited us to come in and explain more of the message to her.

This is a good place. These are good people.

I'm excited that Christmas is coming. I hope you all are too!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks for your continued support!
