But, we did have a few fun experiences this week . . . .Let me think of some for a bit while I say really really thank you to my awesome seminary teacher from years ago for the awesome emails and stories. I also realized that I may not have been sending my emails before to said seminary teacher and now I feel kind of bad, but now you should be getting this one Hno. Christensen, so thank you.
Still thinking. . . .
I guess there was this really neat thing that happened yesterday. We were looking for some news and contacting homes from the list of members in the ward that we didn´t recognize and must therefore not be too active in the church, and if they weren´t there, we talked with they´re neighbors, so mostly neighbors. BUT!! there was this one house we went to where we talked with the Abuela and her care lady (person who takes care of her, can´t think of an English word for that) and also the dad of the family (son of the abuela) and they´ve obviously seen lots of missionaries over the years, just haven´t gone to church in a while and also haven´t read the Book of Mormon in a while so we shared scriptures with them and talked about church and yada yada yada. Fast forward to the evening when we went to another menos activos house and talked with his non member daughter and his daughter´s niece. SO we talk, and it turns out that the guy from the morning, Ariel was his name, is the brother of the menos activos' daughter and father of the other girl and we were just saying stuff in Spanish a lot, but the gist of it was "oh my gosh! we just talked to your dad this morning!! and that old lady was your grandma!! aaahaaahhhh!!!" and the daughter is a pretty die hard Catholic, but she agreed to let us come and talk to her more at the menos activos' house where we found her. So that was neat.
And now I need to get off and email my wonderful family and so I´m kind of sorry about the bummer email, but this next week is going to rock and I´m sure I will have great stories for next time.
