Oh btw hi everyone!
But no seriously, i didnt know easter was yesterday. Its not that celebrated here. Instead what the celebrate is semana santa, basically the week of the crucifixion and resurrection. The most celebrating i saw here though is people taking time off of work, everyone eating fish, and everyone make the famous Capirotada bread, haha i wouldnt say its the best tasteing bread.
And if i remember correctly, one of the talks in church was on tithing... :) but for the 3rd hour we did watch a video about Jesus Christ.
Its crazy to think how much time has gone by. I almos have exactly a yr here in mexico.
Thats really cool you got to meet Brandon Mull, yeah i remember his books.
So this week was pretty good. One thing i have noticed here is that with my new tan i have developed here, more people are assuming that i am the mexican companion in the companionship. Everyone asks where my companion is from and he says idaho and then they ask me and i tell them minnesota and they all tell me they thought i was mexican. There are some times i tell them im from Sinaloa MX and they believe it.
Now last week i mentioned that i made 3 leches cake but didnt quiet finish it and that i was going to tell you how it turned out.... bad. i think we screwed up on the ingreadients or how to make it. And i dont know if it matters but we used regular flour instead of cake flour and in the end the cake wasnt supper sponge like and didnt suck up the milk.
Also news about the work here in Mexicali, we are slowly finding more people to teach. This past week we were able to bring two young men to church (aberham and isaac). Their grandparents are unactive members that we are reactivating and their parents arnt really around a lot from what i have seen. They like being there in the lessions with their grandparents and i think they liked it there at the church. We are going to talk to the family this week about baptism. We are also going to see if we can get a nice big game of futbol going this jueves and have them and the other youth in the ward come and invite all their friends! I hope it all works out.
[the picture] i sent is of my comp and i tired on the side of the road, it was pretty hot out haha.
Love you all, and love hearing all that is going on at home!
