Cucaracha and KFC

Hey Everybody,

  So this week has been amazing! we have had miracle after miracle, way cool. One of those experiences way awesome. We worked all morning and we were super tired and my feet were hurting really bad, we headed home to change shoes grab some water. While we were there we decided to pray and ask for help that we might be able to find someone. So we left and worked for about three more hours, while we were walking down a street we saw a girl sitting on the side of the road. This is not unusual as everyone here in mexico is outside of their house, sitting down, talking with their neighbors and having a good time, this miracle usually happens between 7-9 at night. The perfect hour to contact :) awesome experiences! Anyway, we sat down and talked with this girl, 22 and lives alone, with a desire to know what to do with her life, right now she is in a factory canning tuna for her work. We talked about everything with her, she had question after question of who is God, what do we need to do here on earth and in general what is the gospel of Jesus. Amazing, we were able to explain about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, how we can return to him, we all felt the spirit. It was amazing!

  This experience happened about 3 more times during the week and we could see that certain people were being prepared for us at times during the week, we also were able to help with service this week, really awesome, painting a kitchen! from lime green to lime yellow, super great! Anyway, we are going to change houses this week yeah! no more spiders and cucarachas in your bed! oh funny story, so last night i was sleeping and woke up to a clicking noise, i thought to myself "oh no the air conditioning is broken", after hitting it a couple times and the noise continued i was too tired to do anything so i went back to sleep with the ticking in my ears. In the morning when i raised my head from my pillow i was greeted by a lovely cucaracha right where i had my head. I know now what that clicking noise was in the night. Thankfully it wasn't as big as the spider.

   So today for "p" day we headed to the church and played the famous questions and answers game, it was great later we all headed out to KFC yeah they have it here in mexico!!! the only thing that caught my attention was that the intestines were still inside the bird, and i was the lucky one to have that one piece, to have everything inside! Super good, still tasted like chicken! Well, that is all for this week i love you all thanks for everything. So one last thing that i would like you all to do. Read 1 Nephi 8:10-12 and think "how can i apply this to my life?" Well this is all, thank you so much for everything and all of your letters! i love you all.

Always Happy,
