Hey guys!

This week was a good one.  We didn't have any investigators come to church which was a bummer, but we did have this new less active guy come.   He hasn't been to church in a while and we are not really sure why.  He is actually from Mexico.  His name is W---.   He just recently moved here and one day we were walking down the street when he called us over.  He's a pretty funny guy.  He's like only 5 foot tall and about as heavy as I am.  He says he was baptized in the 80's ´ignorantly´.  He said that they just went with a group of people to the beach and got baptized one day.  We´ll have to do some follow up on that. Anyway, he says that his whole family is in the gospel including his sons and his grandchildren.  He is a teacher of character. Oh, and he knows Hebrew.  The first meeting with him he sang a couple psalms in Hebrew and said the last prayer in Hebrew. It's easy to say that we will continue to visit him and help him in his life.

This week there was an emergency transfer and Elder Muñoz from Chile came to the zone. He looks like Jim Carrey.  He's a funny guy.  It was pretty funny because in church W---, in front of the whole elders quorum called him Jim Carrey and now everyone is calling him that, haha.  Things are going super good though.

Well I can't think of too much more that happened this week!  My mind is overloaded right now!  It was a good week though!

Silly faces

Have a great week everyone!
