Week 35

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! It's been a good week, and a very happy Sunday with 4 investigators in church and 9 less active members, which was awesome!

This week I made tacos from "scratch" as in without a seasoning packet, haha, and they turned out pretty good. But its not the same without corn tortillas which don't exist here. Also when you say tortillas the people think you're talking about what is basically a funnel cake without sugar or a funnel. So, the idea of tacos with corn tortillas pretty much confuses them haha.  But it turned out pretty good. I took pictures, but you know me, I forgot my camera again. 

And well, yea, haha, were pretty excited, because Carlos is getting baptized this Saturday and he's been telling all his friends about the church and the Book of Mormon and he's super adorable and excited to be changing his life, and wanted to surprise his mom by telling her hes not smoking anymore and that he's getting baptized. (In the pictures, he's the one with long curly hair.) 

And thanks to Carlos, we met his friend last Saturday, and Carlos, his friend the girlfriend and their 2 daughters came to church yesterday, and aren't drinking anymore. So weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guys the true and the  restored gospel changes lives and helps people get their lives back on track. I know that this church is true and that our Father in Heaven is with these people helping them leave their addictions and heal their families. 

It's been an interesting week as far as the weather has gone, because for 4 or 5 days it felt like spring time in Hawaii and then one day of rain and cool, yesterday it was chilly, and then today it's back to Hawaii. so yea... winter disappeared haha.

Also, I've had headaches and been super tired lately, and couldn't think what could be my problem, but then I had a "Pedro moment" (Napoleon Dynamite) and I cut my hair. But don't worry, I didn't shave my head. or chop it crazy short. But I think it was the weight of my hair making my head hurt haha.

Anyway, that's all I have for you guys this week. I hope you are happy and healthy and that all you guys have a wonderful week. 

I love you!!!
