4 Months

Hiiiiii Everyone!!

So some members in the ward found two of these
 little guys on their front porch! i don't know what
 they are but I got to hold one! Don't worry,
I washed my hands afterwards!
Thank you so so much for your love this week and for all of your thoughts and prayers for my companion! After being bedridden for about 5 days, on Thursday we were finally back up and running! We didn't leave the house Wednesday because the ladies who were going to help us fell through. We stayed in a napped and talked and ate haha. It was frustrating in the fact that all I wanted to do was be out working but I feel like we talked a lot and were able to have a better friendship because of it. Even up until this last Saturday my companion has been struggling. The doctor said that she could go out but we hardly got anything done because we had to rest a lot. This week seems to be better so far. We will see! Please keep up in your prayers!

Please meet Ian! He is a recent convert and
 we are working with his parents to get baptized!
The father needs to get divorced and
then marry the mother of Ian!
So it has been raining here like crazy! And even though we have all this rain we haven't had water in our house for four days... IT'S LIKE CAMPING!! :):):) haha so we have this huge container in the back porch with water for these days. Then we use a bucket and fill that with water and pour it in the toilet after we have used it to make it flush. Then when we need to shower we fill the bucket and use a bowl... and well shower. Haha it's not the most fun thing in the world but it's life IN MEXICO! haha but I do hope that we get water again soon because we are running out of the water in the back porch. Some of our neighbors told us that it sometimes goes out for three weeks! 

So about our investigators.. We have one couple that are BIEN PADRE!! (Super cool, sweet, awesome) We met them about two weeks ago and haven't been able to really tlak to them since for things like my companion being sick or them not being home when we wanted
Ian's family!
to look for them.We saw her walking one day and asked us why we hand't come by and she seemed alightly interested but not a ton. We finally got to talk to them yesterday and the brother in law of the wife, Tammy, started going on about religion and how all religion is bad and all sorts of stuff, Well Tammy and her husband, Peter, started DEFENDING US and the church! it was so awesome! We had only tlaked to them once with another couple in the ward and they were interested but not extremely then and now after this and after teaching them about the church and how it came to be they are extremely interested. She literally said to us "Can you give me homework?" We gave her a chapter to read in the Book of Mormon and she and her husband have committed to read it. They really want to find God in
Ian's mother! She is an excellent cook! 
Also, my hair is now curly in Acapulco!
their lives and know about Him more. They have never really had any religion in their lives. They love the face that they can go on a mission together as a couple and serve. They love the principles that this gopsel teaches. They also committed to a baptismal date for July 26. Tammy told us that she really wants to know the truth and feel the love of God in her life. It was one of the most spiritual experiences in my mission so far. With that said, PRAY FOR PETER AND TAMMY! Please! I know that you all will because you are all incredible :)

My first care package! thanks mom and dad!!

Thank you all so much for your love and support! A mission has been the best thing that has ever happened in my life!

I love you all so so much!
