It's soooooo hot!

Hola Familia!!

It rained for the first time in a while this morning! It was coming down pretty hard but now its looking a little better outside. We are happy because its a little bit cooler today, this week the sun just killed us, it was sooooo hot!

I´m going to answer some of the questions from mom.

1. Are you still working with the new elders or are they long gone to their new areas?
The new elders are in their areas working hard, but we still ask them how they are and everything to check up on them.
2. Have you had any funny experiences this week?
We had a battle with a couple of kids yesterday....haha we went to an acitivity in the ward to teach one of our investigators, a ten year old boy named Angel. He was playing around with three boys and they were getting pretty rough. So we were trying to separate Angel from the other kids so we could teach him and we had to finally escape to another room and lock the door because the kids wanted to do karate on us. So we locked ourselves in the room and they were there pounding on the door the whole time to try to get in.

Also just spending more time with President and his wife is always a hoot. They are hilarious and I just love being around them, they are teaching me a ton and Im grateful for the time I get to spend with them. 

3. What's the grossest thing you've stepped on in your mission?
The grossest thing that íve stepped on?? haha good question... Lots and lots of dog poop (not that exciting...) and one time i ALMOST stepped on a dead dog that had its head chopped off by a train...but i saw it in time and we just took some pictures
4. What's the most unpleasant thing you've eaten?
Easy. It would be the mondongo (cow stomach) that I ate in the tuxtlas. Never again will I try cow stomach...
5. What was your favorite teaching moment with an investigator this week?
 We found a new investigator named Lilia who is really really prepared to listen to the discussions. She was a reference from a sister in the ward. We taught her the plan of salvation with the sister that gave us the reference and the spirit was soooo strong. Lilia is praying a lot to be able to get an answer from God, she has been searching for the true church for a long time and it was a very special lesson. She is going to come to church with us tommorrow!

I hope that dad is doing good this week, I will be praying alot and Im glad that it was nothing serious. We are going to have two baptisms tommorrow after church! We are going to baptize the kid that I told you about, Angel. His familiy is inactive but they have started coming to church again and he is super excited and already has a bunch of friends in the primary. We are also going to baptized Alondra. She is a single mom and is 24, she was a reference from a lady in the ward and has so much faith, you wouldn´t believe it. She got an answer super quick and has felt happy and excited ever since to get baptized. She has never been apart of any religion but knows that this is true so we are really excited for her!

Well, it has been a good week. Hot, but good. We are keeping busy and always apreciate your prayers for our investigators!! I love you all a ton and hope you are doing good!!!

Mucho amor, 

Elder Eastmond
