Can't Hang!

First of all, It was a really good week! We had a lot of great stuff happen this
week! Mostly the fact we found 3 new investigators, and we haven't
found one in a really really long time... This area is really really
small... So pretty much most people we talk to, have like talked to
missionaries every 2 months. So it's tough to get people to listen.
But we have these three new investigators that are all super solid and
so we are excited to see how it goes with all of them.

To answer the question if it is cooling down or not... I'll
answer by saying no... It was 10 at night and still 93 degrees

So whenever we are planning for the week if my companion falls asleep, I take these pictures of him and say "Can't Hang"!

I can't believe I FELL ASLEEP!! Good job to my awesome companion!!

New Diet Plan!!

Some members took us to the Natural History Museum last week for pday! They have
this butterfly exhibit where you go in and it's like a huge jungle
with all sorts of plants and there's streams and a waterfall and there
are like butterflies of all kinds just flying around you, it was
pretty cool! Except when the big ones almost hit your face!!

So he sent me this picture of a huge bug and these signs about insects being a healthy alternative to meat???? WHAT!!! The one picture shows how insects compare to beef and chicken! I didn't include the other information pictures he sent but one of them says this...

"Its purely a matter of taste. We savor their close relatives, the crustaceans! So the next time you think about shucking a crawfish, dining on lobsters, or munching on soft shell crabs, Why not snack on a grasshopper po'boi instead??"

I did email him back real quick and told him that I didn't want to hear he was starving!! He could make endless amounts of cockroach tacos!!! hahaha

Not too much happened this week, I had a lot of meetings I had to do
as a district leader. We had our Missionary Leadership Counsel which is
a 8 hour meeting and then the next day I had a 4 hour meeting for the
New Leadership Training. Other than that we have been trying to do
things like find a weekly service project  we can do, and so that
was the picture the member sent, we went into a goodwill and were
signing up to be volunteers there. So ya we did that, we tracted a
whole lot and then we helped this one guy who was pretty funny but we
pulled up and asked him if he needed help and he let us help cut and
trim his bushes. Then we shared a bit of our message with him and then
he told us to come back sometime, so hopefully something comes from
that. As we were leaving he was telling us that we were like what  Christians should be, telling us that we were like Jesus because we
stopped and offered our help and then shared the gospel so he was
happy about that. So neat experience!

Picture at the goodwill!

District Meeting!

1st Birthday on the Mish!!

So for his birthday I sent a package with party hats that you could decorate, those annoying things you blow on to make noise, and even sent pin the tail on the donkey. I ordered pizza and had it delivered to the ward building for his district! Aunt Megan also brought him a cake and cupcakes for everyone that day! 
So this was his response to that...

My birthday was good! We had a lot of fun with all the things on
Monday, we only took like one picture though. REALLY only one picture...that kid!! 

But I have quite a few
pictures from the Dinner I had with my recent converts on Saturday! I
love this family so much! They made me a cake with candles and
everything and then they gave me a gift.... Which was a super nice
camelback... And I was so happy!!! It was such a
thoughtful gift!

Anyway the week went good, my first district meeting went really well, nothing else happened this week, we really didn't have much
happen this week, we basically have just about knocked on every door
in this area now, and we still really haven't had too much luck. But
we are still doing our best to find people who are ready to receive the
gospel and make the change in their lives for the better.
