So this week was interesting.
First of all we went to this members house cause he said that he had a reference for us. So we made a plan with him that we were going to make brownies and then teach his friend. So we got together a couple of days before to find the recipe and make sure he had all the stuff. He said he had everything except chocolate chips and baking soda, but he said he would go to the store and buy them before we got there. So we get there and start making the brownies and we notice that there are not chocolate chips. So we say (obviously in Spanish, Im just translating for all you gringos)," Derek (that was his name), where are the chocolate chips." He just looks at us and says,"Oh yeah, I forgot to get those." Alright, luckily there was some chocolate powder stuff that smelled pretty good, so we dumped a lot of that in there. Then it came time to put in the baking soda, and we couldnt find that either. So we asked,"Derek where is the baking soda?" Im sad to say it didnt surprise us when he said,"Oh yeah, I forgot that too." Thanks Derek. So we made brownies without chocolate chips or baking soda, and also Id like to point out that his friend never did show up. But thats the mission for ya.
Also, one day I went to go get a Book of Mormon out of our box where we kept them, and right when I reached down to grab one, a giant lizard jumped out from the curtains next to it. It was terrifying, that thing was huge. Luckily we caught it and let it go, but now weve got to call our landlord to lizard proof the house (broma, joke for all you gringos).
Also for the first time in a while, we had an investigator come to church. His name was Thomas, and hes almost 8, so technically hes not an investigator yet, but it counts in my mind. It was really cool because this ward hasnt had an investigator come to church in over a year. It was cool.
I hope all is well, and I hope all stays well. I miss you guys!
