Highlights of the week- We have begun teaching a certain “Marcos Juan” or “Juan Marcos”- i cant tell because the first time we met him, he said his name was marcos. We came back and he said his name was Juan. then He gave us his business card and it just says JuanMarcos. haha I dont know.
We Did exchanges with the guys from Lowell on tuesday, and I got to be with a greenie- Elder Pereira. It was such an awesome experience. He is an amazing person. he is half portugues and half indian. He joined the church when he was 14, with his whole family, just in Pasadena! 4 years later and a semester into UC Berkely, he left on his mission! He is actually just awaiting his citizenship to enter India on his mission, so we will have him for 3 months! Aint that cool?! I didnt even know we had missionaries in India! So cool! We worked super hard that day, and Heavenly Father gave us some awesome blessings. We found a whole less active family who lives right down the hall from us, and we found 2 more spanish investigators and had the blessing to teach them about the restoration!
Saturday, we walked out of the house, and in the first 20 minutes, we had gotten phone numbers from 5 people, witnessed a robbery (a guy totally got his laptop swiped, to which we started chasing after the culprit in a rather abortive manner- cmon, we are in dress shoes and slacks- either way, it was fun chasing after a robber) and had a whole family totally pumped to come to church (because they wouldnt have to deal with their kids for hours 2 and 3 of church- haha).
ANYWAYS! Got my haircut by a dominican this morning and i think it looks great! On my way to a beautiful spanish vocabulary- with an emphasis on how to say “im broke” and a multitude of ways to say “whats up”.
The book of Mormon is the best book in the whole world!
I love you all and hope you have a great week.
