Not Too Much This Week...


Not too much to report this week, so this email will probably be fairly short.

As far as teaching goes, things were pretty normal this week.  We had a really good lesson with a man named A------ who is looking for a way to have better unity in his family.  He said he was praying for a way to help his family, and then we showed up!  Awesome!

A man from Mexico taught us about the Amish a few days ago.  This man was born in Mexico but did a lot of his schooling in California, so our conversation was in Spanglish.  He would say a few words in Spanish, then a few in English, then back to Spanish, and so forth.  It was pretty interesting.

There is a less active in the branch who doesn't like missionaries at all.  We have tried many times to reach out to him, but he is never interested in talking to us, and he will usually only respond to us with very short sentences if he has to talk with us.  Well, this past week we had a great visit with him and talked to him for over half an hour.  It went so well that he offered to let us test drive his BMW around the neighborhood.  If it wasn't for the rule of only driving mission vehicles, I would have been able to drive his BMW!

As far as my vow goes to talk about food each week, this week I learned that you can't make a good carnitas out of turkey, and the same goes for barbacoa out of lengua.  (This is all according to a guy named Elias we talked to on the street, so don't get mad at me if it's wrong =) ).

I think that's about it.  Sounds like the dance concert was a success!  I'm sad I missed it.  I guess I'll just have to go to one in whatever college Katie goes to...  And Trevor better keep that Skyrim song good for when I get home, because I want to hear it!

I'm excited to talk to you guys on Sunday!  I have 40 minutes, and I can Skype this time.  I've been working through the details with Dad, but I should be calling after 2:30 your time, and I'll call Grandma Pat right after, so probably anywhere from 3 to 5 for her.

Oh, and thanks for the package.  I had a pretty good lunch with the stuff that was in there!
