Week 57 - A ward party at the park for Easter

Back again!

Well this week was a lot of fun! 

On Monday, we went laser tagging which was awesome! Then we went to visit a few families and went contacting. Tuesday, we had a mini conference about family history which was so awesome! They've really gone crazy with the whole family history thing and they introduced a module for us to use and they really want us to teach it! I think it'll be an awesome opportunity! Then we had a few lessons with some of our investigators that fell through and then just ended up going finding hah. Wednesday we had family history and I found a ton of names I'm so pumped to keep putting them all in!! After that we had to get our car inspected which took FOREVER and then had enough time to go visit our investigator J with Hermano R. Thursday we taught English class at this school which was pretty good! There is one guy who comes and then like 13 ladies hahah it's pretty great. We had weekly planning that day so it took up most of our time and then we went finding and tried to see Pepe and the Garcias. Friday, we had district meeting which was good! My favorite part is always language study hahah. We were playing this game on the chalk board where you have to translate a sentence into Spanish…I got to the last one and got so pumped I threw the chalk and it hit a leg on a chair and like disintegrated it was pretty funny hahah. We then tried a ton of people we hadn't seen in a while and we got in with a few it was a pretty good day! Now Saturday is a day all on its own hahah. We had a ward party planned at this park for Easter and we’re like struggling on miles this past and next week so we're trying to get as many rides as we can. So the only ride we found was from Hermano R, who was going to go to a temple session at 7 a.m. so we had to be up at 5 a.m. to get ready and then walk to the church for him to pick us up hah! We get there and the party doesn't start until 9 a.m. so we just waited on the temple grounds and then another member came to pick us up. So this part is key... I looked at what the weather was going to be like, it said it would be cloudy and like 70’s so I didn't put sunblock on thinking I won't need it... We get there, help set up the bbq and out comes the sun. There was this huge soccer field next to the picnic tables if you can tell where this is going…so we played soccer and then all the members showed up and then the Louetta ward showed up at another spot. After we ate we played soccer for like 4 hours... I got sunburnt so bad and had a crazy watch tan line hah I'm really glad I know a ton of Hispanics who are always packing that aloe plant ;) But then the sisters had a baptism that went really good! Then Sunday of course was Easter and we ate with the Cabrera family and had this stuff called ting it's like chicken and some other soup stuff on a tostada hah :) That's my week! Hope you had a wonderful Easter!
