Week 69

Helado Sultana, a super yummy ice cream parlor, had a 2 for 1 deal for Father's
Day Weekend, so my companion and I bought 2 liters, it's the best!!

This week was AMAZING!! My favorite part was our Zone Conference on Thursday, which was the last of the Zone Conferences of President Bird since we were the last group to have it. They combined Zones this time since President is leaving soon and had super Zone Conference (as I liked to call it) since it was 2 Zones rather than one. It was our Zone Fe, together with another Zone Paciencia. President Bird gave a wonderful discussion on becoming consecrated disciples of Christ, using a talk by Neil A. Maxwell called "Settle it in Your Hearts". I highly recommend the talk since it helps us to know how to become even more dedicated to Christ our Savior. :)

Later, my companion and I gave a instructions on "Did we have success today?"or "¡Tuvimos exito hoy?" as it's called in Spanish. We made cool cards with questions of reflection to help them measure their success, not only based on their daily numbers or experiences, but their dedication, service, and much more. I must say it turned out really well, although we struggled to make the cards since we are out of practice using computers...It was a good experience though!!

This week, it got up to about 100 degrees, which actually didn't feel too hot, I guess because I'm accustomed to it. This week it'll be a little cooler, around 90 degrees, all week. 

It's gotten so hot at night, we moved our beds outside,
super nice having the night breeze, reminds me of camping :D

Finally used up the sunscreen I've had since the time Dad bought me
some at a track meet. Rremember that Dad? It was well used. :P

We've been continuing to find new people in hopes of finding someone truly ready to make changes in their life and come unto Christ. The other companion in our Ward had a baptism of a sweet lady and a recent convert from our area did the ordinance, which was a super cool experience for him, as well as for us too. The sad news is that we visited him a couple days after and found him in distress. He told us how he lost feeling in his leg and hasn't been able to move all day, so he couldn't take his diabetes medicine. Also, half his face was paralyzed and so he struggled to talk and his lip was drooping. We ran for his family who live down the street and they took him to the hospital saying he might have had a stroke. We have been in contact with his daughter and she told us they still don't know what caused it, but they stabilized his sugar level, which is hopeful.

Today we had an activity in our Zone where we ordered "tacos de canasta" which are like little tacos cooked with steam and oil and they were delicious! Also a member in our ward gifted us "gelatinas", which are like freeze pops, but WAY better since they are huge and made with milk and real fruits. We were going to play spoons...but the other missionaries forgot their spoons so we played soccer and go fish instead. It was a lot of work to organize the activity with the food and drinks and everything, but definitely worth it. :D 

Love you all and hope you are enjoying your summer!!! Oh and Happy Father's Day Dad!! I kept trying to ask around when the date was and no one knew...otherwise I would have told you last week, hope you had a wonderful day!!!

A sister in our ward who gave us food gifted us with a few things she thought we would need.
How sweet of her!:D Her name is Sister Moran and she lives in Dallas, Texas,
but is living here to sell her house she owns here. Nicest lady ever! :)

We are going to be changing houses soon so we started cleaning out the house.
It's quite the project with all the materials we have as Zone Leaders!!
