so baisically not much has been different here. this week was a lot better for us than the last 2 have been. we found a total of 13 new people to teach this week, and 4 of them are this really cool family we found. and 1 of them is one we found last night, her name is Daniella. We started out doing contacts sunday evening cuz we needed like 30 more to hit our weekly goal of 140, so we came to an intersection, flipped a coin to decide where to go and got to work, a lot of people saying they were busy, or that they were jehovas wittnesses and didnt want to start a fight or just old catholic poeple that shut the door in our face lol then we heard this sound that we thot sounded like a dinosaur so we went down that street top see if we could find out what it was, but we didnt have any luck. and next door to the place where heard the noises was a church building for the jehovas wittnesses so just out of spite i went and knocked the house right next to it and this girl around 25 yrs old came out and let us in. so we found out that she was catholic by tradition, but never went. and she lived there with her grandparents and her parents and that their house collapsed in the earthquake and that tis girl really likes cats. lol i guess she had like 11 and all but 3 died in the earthquake. and she really loves doing paintings and is studying art in college lol so baisically she was a hippy lol but she was funny. so we taught the restoration and told her about the Book of Mormon and when we pulled it out to and started talking about it we were like "this book can help you get an answer to any question in ur life" and she was like "ANYYYY question???"
"ummm yeah...?"
"Gimme that!" and she grabbed it out of my comps hands and started like petting it lol :D
so then she asked if there were martians and how she could be more awake and recieve more inspirations for her paintings, so i told her that if she stopped drinking tea and coffee or alchohol she would be more awake, and she was like "hey that makes sense! im gonna try it!" lol so she has a head start on the word of wisdom lesson now lol but she said she would read the chapter we left her so we´ll see how that went tuesday night. and then at the end, we were doing a closing prayer with her, and my comp started to pray, and one of her cats started rubbing up against his leg, so she grabbed it and chucked it accross the room in the middle of the prayer lol :D it was really hard to keep from busting out laughing lol but other than that this week was kinda boring. we took all the tea from one of our investigators so she could stop drinking. so last night we burnt it on the little ledge out back of our house lol so were pretty sure she´ll be off the stuff for good now haha the only major bummer is that she didnt come to church yesterday :P and she said she would n everything. but im pretty used to that now.
I love and miss you all and will see you in about 14 months!
