This week had its ups and downs but yeah all is good here in Puebla.This week we had a family home evening with a family from our ward and they invited a less active member Nelly and her husband Eduardo. Things went well during the family home evening and we talked about faith. He accepted to listen to the lessons and read the Book of Mormon. He said the closing prayer. It was a little interesting during the prayer because he was like praying to us, me and my companion. Well needless to say we will be teaching prayer at our lesson with him this week
This week we got a special assignment from Hermana Christensen. She called me and well here is a little back story first...
So I get a phone call from Hermana Christensen asking me if I would accept the assignment to help Conchita. She asked me if I could get our ward all organized and excited about helping her. I was so down for the assignment and I accepted it will glee. We got it going right in that moment. I got a calendar and went and visited Conchita for the first time and started asking her what days we could help her. She told us that we could come back and help clean her house and wash her dishes.
Also this week the random guy that contacted us a couple weeks back who was looking for his girlfriend/cousin found us again one day when we were studying in the park. He told us that he found his girlfriend but that things are not going to work out. He then went on to tell us that he has been doing good and has just been living the life of rock and roll and we are always invited when we want to come live with him. Then he pulled out this giant knife that was double sided and started telling us about how he has this scary looking knife to protect himself. He also showed us some asian throwing stars. Yeah, needless to say we peaced-out of that park quick. He is a nice guy just a little strange.
Love you all and miss you like no other.
Chocolate skulls for día de los muertos.
These took the place of real skulls when the Spanish colonists told the indigenous peoples of Mexico they could no longer dig up their dead to celebrate this holiday.
Mexicans now use chocolate or sugar skulls to decorate their altars.
