Alright, the area of Castaños is doing good. We still are having a little bit of trouble getting in to the streets that have the gates on them. But, sometimes we tell the guards a name so he lets us in to the street. The funny part is that the person that we tell the guard that we are going to visit doesn´t exist. We dont always do this, just part of the time. But, we are doing really well at finding new people for us to teach. We have several new people that look like they are really interested. So, i started off the day of Thanksgiving kind of sad because I thought we probably weren´t going to have any kind of Thanksgiving dinner. But I went through the day like normal, and at 5 in the afternoon this family from this super nice neighborhood in the ward called us and said for us to meet them at this Grocery store in the area at around 7:15. So, we all had no idea what was going on. Then we got there and the other missionaries from the ward were there too. The family pulls up in a car, and they take us to their house for Thanksgiving. We had turkey, sweet potatoes, corn, all the normal stuff that they could find for us. It was great. Ok, i learned a lot about faith this week. Sometimes we say "I have faith" and then sit and wait for our situation to change. I learned this week that we need to do something to show our faith. Whether that be changing something we are doing, or working hard at something. Then, after we have done all that we can do, our Heavenly Father will help us with what we are asking. Sometimes in the mission when I feel like I am not teaching very well, or that I am struggling with something, I pray for the help and strength to be able to change. And when I know that I have done everything that I can do, I can feel that Heavenly Father is helping me with what i have asked for. It is like a leap of faith. We need to jump to receive help. Well, that is what i have for this week. Que Le Vaya bien
1. We knocked on this door and the lady yelled from inside the house "who is it". We told her "the friends of your best friend". She yelled "who?", we said "the friends of your best friend". She asked who her best friend was, and we said, "He is our best friend too, his name is Jesus Christ and we have message to share with you about him". There was a little moment of silence, then the lady inside the house just busted up laughing. We talked to her for about 5 minutes, but she is a really strong Catholic so she didnt want us to come back.
1. I made tortillas for the first time, and i tried to do it the way the people do it here. They take the ball of tortilla dough, flatten it just a little bit in their hands, and then they put it in the palm of their hand, and they start clapping. I dont know how but in 10 seconds they have a tortilla shape. Mine looked awful. So i just stretched it out on a plate.
