May 2, 2016- in Gonzalez Catan with Elder Marquez

“my best friend Fernando”
“me and Prez and Sister Thurgood”
So this week we had interviews and meetings and tons of zone leader stuff to do. It’s crazy how it all fell onto the same week. So we didn’t have a ton of time to work this week, but the time we did have was really productive. Daniel is still progressing really well -linea por linea. He went to stake conference and loved it. He’s started preaching to his inactive family members about the church- he’s awesome. The funniest thing of the week was when we passed by a birthday party of one of our investigators. One of the members of the church at the party started talking about how it was almost my birthday. Somehow that family of investigators understood that my birthday was the 1st of May. Long story short they made a surprise birthday dinner and cake for me and sang to me and everything. Hahaaha. I had to tell everyone that my b-day is Friday. It was funny. We’re really excited about this family too. There’s like 6 of them. They’re all bros and sisters and their mom. They all have over 17 years and are all progressing little by little. It’s weird because each one has his or hers own pace and we have to teach according to the pace of each one of them. We’re seeing a lot of progress and we are getting a lot of help from the youth to help them. The other big news is that I’m cold. It got ridiculously cold this week. I hate it. But I’m now using my scarf. I set off the scarf fad in the zone this year. I wore it to a mtg and everyone asked me about it. Now everyone uses scarfs. hahahaaha I love you all a ton!
