Proselyting last week was also great. It was fun to be doing it with Elder Adamson this time. We had two people (separate occasions) who just happened to be sitting on their doorstep doing nothing when we came by and talked to them who were very receptive. One was an old lady named Savina. We taught her to pray but forgot to tell her to do it out loud. So we sat their for a couple awkward minutes, and then she started crying. Elder Brown started to explain that it was the Holy Ghost, and then he started crying. It was a nice experience. The missionaries who get our referral better talk to her because she is ready. The other one was a man named Dario, and he answered some of his own questions as we talked to him, such as why we don´t use crosses or why the Book of Mormon is needed as a second witness. Unfortunately, we went back to Argelia (the empanada lady), and after reading all of 3 Nephi 11 with her (great to do that with someone for the first time) she said she is happy with her religion. Not much you can do their but testify and hope she tries reading eventually. So there have been ups and downs to everything.
One more fun experience. Last P-Day we bought churros and donuts from a man who was selling them outside the gate. Then Hermana Openshaw bought everyone McDonalds! Elder Smith summed it up best, "If we did this at the Provo MTC, we`d be getting sent home." Haha, it sure is a different experience here. It`s fun to see the new group of Elders, espeically the Norteamericanos, get used to it. There are about 80 missionaries here, so it can be a little hectic. But I sure love it. Cannot wait to get out in the field and teach the people I have been sent to, but I know I need these weeks to be ready for that. I also got another set of Dear Elder letters; that was great. Hopefully next time I get letters from the Joshua Stevens and the Mataus, I will be hearing about where they are going on their missions. I am glad your trip to Mexico went well and everyone had fun. Love you all, and I can`t wait to hear more from you next week.
