Heleman 13:4, "And it came to pass that they would not suffer that he should enter into the city; therefore he went and got upon the wall thereof, and stretched forth his hand and cried with a loud voice, and prophesied unto the people whatsoever things the Lord put into his heart."

It just gets faster....

Hey Family!
This week went by so fast I can´t even remember what we did!  On Tuesday we had interviews with President and so we spent almost the whole day at his house. 
The rest of this week was full of lessons, fallen appointments, and missionary meetings.  We also have been trying to run more!  We ran all the way to the office Elder´s house on saturday morning.  It´s about 4 miles and there´s a HUGE hill at the end.  I want to get back in shape because I´m super fat.  

On Saturday night we threw an open house at the church for non-members to come and learn what Mormons are all about and how we don´t worship Joseph Smith like everyone thinks.  It went really well and a lot of people showed up.  All the ward leaders did a good job helping out.  

Strange situation....On Sunday morning we got to our investigator´s house and his friend was there that just had had a baby this week.  The baby was sick and so they asked us to give it a blessing.  Here´s the catch, the mom hadn´t decided on a name for the baby yet!  Hmmm, kinda hard to give a blessing to someone without a name...So we called President and he said it couldn´t be done.  So we just decided to say a prayer for the baby instead!  It was pretty funny. 
Hope you all are doing excellent and staying strong!  Sorry the email is a little lame this week, but I hope the pictures and videos make up for it!

PS: Saw a BYU hat this week!  My first sighting of BYU clothing!  He was a taxi driver and cruised by so I couldn´t take a pic.  It was a nice hat though!  

Strange vegetable.

Shoes worn out in the service of the Lord.

Making guacamole (YUM!) and playing "Monopoly Deal" a p-day tradition now.

Rain, rain, GO AWAY!
