July 22 2013

Hey Everyone,

This week has been pretty fun. To start the week the zone went to La Bufadora! It was pretty cool. I dont exactly know the science behind the bufadora and what makes the water shoot up but it is still super cool non the less. It is also super touristy and so there were a few people there speaking english and there were a ton of people selling things. I have learned its really fun to bargin, once you enter their little store they start trying to sell you something and if you think the price of something is a little high and start to leave they start trying to lower it and get you reinterested. 

Teaching wise... We have been going with the Fam P_____ about every other day. The Kids will be getting baptised 3 de Agosto. We are waiting an extra week because one of the kids is going to EFY. It will be a great experience for him. Every time we go visit them we have broughten different members so they can get to know the people in the ward. Yesterday we brought them to another families house for a Noche de Hogar. It was really fun. I gave the lession based of the talk given in the last general conference "Firm Foundation" or something like that. 

We have also been working with the brother of G_______ (recent convert of ours). His name is A____. He has been having problems with smoking and other things that are going on in his life and he wants to change. He accpted to get baptised, but we dont have a date set, we had one but he didnt go to church this week and he needs to first go to church and stop smoking before he can get baptised.

One day in the week we were eating with member and someone knocked on their door, i heard the voice and it was someone who sounded like they were just learning spanish in school.  We later ran into them when we left the lunch appointment and it turns out that it was a group on some sort of activity for thier church and they are visiting from Saskatchewan, Canada. They all spoke english and only one could speak spanish because she was studying it in college. We talked for a little while and then went our seperate ways. 

Well got to go. I sent a lot of fotos from the Bufa.

A variation on thumbs up that I like to call thumbs out.

EJ and a companion he had in Mexicali, both are now in Ensenada. Notice that EJ is doing thumbs up behind the seat. All you can see is his upright thumb.
