5.30.11 -- Satelite, Hermosillo
Hey, check it out. I know how to make tortillas by hand.
It was 113 degrees a few days ago. And this is just the start. And yes, we work anyway.
I ate menudo (or cow stomach) for the first time this week. I liked it. Slightly chewy, but really tender.
E. Rivas and I were walking down the street the other day when a man in a van drove by, leaned out of the window, and yelled out, "Hey! I´m reading that book you guys gave me!" and then E. Cancino and I had contacted him months ago. Haha, I felt like laughing and yelling out "Thank you!" at the sky after that. I didn´t. But I sure felt like it.
Quickly--we recieved a member referral this week, and went to go teach the young man who the referral turned out to be. He was super receptive--at the beginning of the visit, he began to talk about change, and repentance, and a ton of other things that have to do with the gospel. E. Rivas and I looked at each other, nodded, and began to go right into baptism. He accepted when I said, "Will you follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized by someone holding the priesthood authority of God?" Not only did he accept, but he´s ecstatic. We went back the next day and he had read the two pamphlets we left and is in 1 Nephi 8, after reading the entire introduction and testimony of Joseph Smith. Geez, I felt good after that.
We´re getting into a rhythm now, which is great--although geez, I feel weighed down sometimes. By that, I mean the times that I fully comprehend the importance of the work. Then I pray and keep working. Gah this is hard sometimes. But that´s okay.
