Chapulinas y Papas Locas

Hey everyone!

Spanish Lessons with Hermana Clark:
Chapulín-cricket/grasshopper. As in,

​"I ate a cricket last Monday in a fair that came from Oaxaca! Then we convinced several missionaries in our zone to try it. It was funny."
Papas Locas- crazy potatoes. As in,

​"Hermana Blackham reached her halfway mark last Monday and the 4 of us Sisters from the Pueblo celebrated. I ate papas locas. They put valentina sauce, lime, soy sauce, chamoy, and possibly some other stuff on potato chips. Mm Mm Good."
Felicidad- happiness. As in, "Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness." Alma 41:10

This week we worked with the members, and it was great.
One day we took a member to a lesson and when we got there we found out that she and the investigator already knew each other. They worked together for years and they're good friends. They were chatting the whole time we were trying to teach a lesson and the member ended up inviting the investigator to the Relief Society activity the next day. She went! We saw her there in the church. It was awesome!

One day a lesson cancelled on us so we looked for a few backup plans. Then we had the idea to look for some members who we haven't been able to visit in a while. They're almost never home at that time of day, but we went and they were home. When we walked in, they said, "you heard about what happened, right?"
We had not heard anything.
They told us about the crazy things that had happened to them that week and how their experiences made them realize that they need to change the way they're living the gospel and improve.
Only the Spirit could have guided us to find them right then, because I never would have thought to go look or them.

A couple weeks ago a member told us about a friend of his who had moved to our area. He's a member, but his new wife isn't. We finally found them and got to know them yesterday, and it was great. He wants to start coming to church and participating in the ward here, and she wants to learn more about the gospel and come to church with him. It was great to find them.

We had a good week, and we're looking forward to another great one.
I hope you all have a great one too!
