|Our first baptism!!! haha jk, we just saw this happy, Catholic couple taking pics in the park, and we totally photo bombed at least 10, but then we ended up asking for a personal pic, hah!|
Marriage is what brings us together today..I HAVE DECIDED TO GET MARRIED.....not! This week was absolutely amazing in my different ways, but also FULL of lessons and experiences concerning marriage and dating....more on that in the cultural category;D
|One of the families that we are teaching right now. They are awesome and we totally love them, but they are just a bit crazy sometimes and forget the importance of going to church;)|
Funny: There are tons of funny pics, but I think the funniest thing that happened is that our trio now has new names. Hna Renovato is the Lamanite, Hna Garcés is the Anti-Nefi-Lehite and I am the Nephite....purely basted on the colors of our skin. We are definitely not racist in our companionship;D
|Yup, still looking for a house, but the newspapers didn't help us much as they were all VERY nice houses|
....that are advertised to have water too;D
|The family of our pensionista. We LOVE them!|
Cultural: To be honest, I have not even THOUGHT about marriage for the course of my entire mission and it is still something that I avoid like the plague, BUT it is not uncommon (apparently) to be thinking about that during the mission. Below I have attached a photo of an elder who is practically already engaged and his fiancée is planning the wedding right now. Also, my two companions talk about marriages constantly and one is already planning the date for when she will enter the temple with the love of her life.
|THIS is Elder Babbitt, and YES he was practically engaged before coming on the mission, haha!|
We also taught a lesson on marriage this Sunday, and let's just say that I didn't have much to say, haha! AND, we helped a bawling young woman after the second hour of church to cope with her current break up....YUP! I will not be getting married for at LEAST 5 more years AND the only thing I know about my wedding is that we will be eating lots of chocolate;D
|One of the sweetest members of all times:D She works all day, every day,|
but separates 3 hours every Sunday to go to church.
|It was the birthday one of our neighbors yesterday and they invited us to eat with them. |
It was super nice, but we had just come from eating lunch, so we literally ROLLED the rest of the day, haha!
Spiritual: We have been praying to find a family of 5 who can all get baptized together before Hna Renovato leaves in a few more weeks, AND we have 3 families of 5, all of which can be baptized, but we are working on it. So cool:)
Love ya´ll!:D Have another great week of school!
|We made TACOS for a family home evening and I LOVE them:D..the people and the tacos;)|
