This week I got to do divisions again. Elder Gonzalez my district leader came to my area with Elder Porras. And I went to the other area with Elder Vargas. It was a lot of fun. Elder Vargas is a brand new Elder. This is his first change, so it was a lot of fun being the ¨experienced¨ one. I could tell that he was pretty nervous. We contacted this guy, Elder Vargas introduced himself, and then he introduced me as Elder Gonzalez! The guy was just staring at me like ¨there is no way that guy is named Gonzalez. So I introduced myself and we finished the contact, while I was fighting the laughs. The rest of the day went well.
Wednesday we had a really good day! We had a lesson with our investigator Beatriz. She is married to a member named Javier. They are both super awesome and are literally one of the coolest families that I have met. Javier has been inactive for about 10 years, but ever since the missionaries have started to come to church he has been super excited about the Church and always wants to learn more. And he always comes to Church now if he doesnt have to work. Beatriz has been Catholic her whole life, and it has taken her a long time to really accept the Gospel and it´s teachings. But on Wednesday she finally told us that she wants to be baptized!
On Friday there was a stake activity that I got to go to. It is called La Noche Mexicana and it is to celebrate the Mexican independence day. It was pretty cool. I got to see a few traditional mexican dances. In one of them, the dancers all had candles on top of their heads! that was wierd. And in another one, all of them had a pineapple that they held on top of their shoulder. Also kind of wierd, but cool. The best part is that two of our investigators were also there! We didnt get to stay for too long because we had to be home by 9:30.
Sunday was good as well. One of our investigators came, but we had like 6 say that they would come.
