Wow, I haven't written you since last year! Hahaha :)Well, this week has been great, and I feel like so much happened in only one week!
We went to visit another family and found the mom making tortillas, so we started helping her make tortillas. Afterwards, we were rewarded with fresh tortillas topped with AVOCADO! I was in heaven. To follow, she said today was her mother's birthday and invited us to join in and eat cake. We felt so out of place, but it was a blast. :)
Other funny story: We were visiting one lady who, I believe, thinks we are Jehovah's Witnesses. Well, Hermana Porter has a ton of mosquito bites on her legs. This sister saw them and was very, very worried for her. She said, "I'll be right back", and went to grab something. She returned with a bottle of sunscreen and proceeded to apply the sunscreen on the legs of Hna Porter. We think she thought it was repellent. She didn't rub it in, so her legs were even whiter than is normal for us. It was very sweet of her.
This week, we have been teaching a young man named Walter. Hna Porter met him in Santa Barbara and was really excited to teach him here. Well, I can now see why. Saturday, we invited him to baptism, and he said YES! To make it even better, he came to church on Sunday! As we were sitting in the testimony meeting, he leaned over to Hna Porter and said that he wanted to go up to bear his testimony too! He said not this Sunday, because he wasn't ready, but he asked if we could prepare him to be ready for the next time. Ummmm, yes. I think maybe we can do that! I am over the moon!
Sunday, Hermana Porter and I taught the Principles of the Gospel class for investigators and new members. We got to teach about Exaltation. Wow, it was a wonderful, wonderful experience. The Spirit was SO strong. If you have a chance, read that chapter in the manual. It is beautiful.
So, pretty much a stellar week overall.
I love you all so much!
