A Sweet Week ... Strawberries and Brain Worms
100 Balls for the Easter Egg Hunt
Let the Hunt begin!
HAPPY LATE EASTER
WOO, it’s been a sweet
First things first,
turns out that strawberries grown here in Mexico are really bad for you and if
you eat them you get worms growing in your brains … or something like that … so
I’ve already stopped my short tradition of malts in the morning L How
sad. I really love them strawberries.
Woo, so this whole last
week was called Holy Week and it got pretty lonely here! Everyone was on vacation and went to the beach
or other places and we were left alone walking in the streets with just about
nothing to do. BUT IT WAS AWESOME! We still worked real good and taught lots of
lessons with the few people that were still here. My Highlight of the week was
the GIANT EASTER EGG HUNT WE DID FOR THE GARCIA CHILDREN! Yeah, they are my bros. These children are our neighbors and are our
off road tricycling buddies and I just love them so much that I decided to blow
a LOT of money so that they could experience the true joys of an Easter egg
hunt. The problem is, plastic Easter
eggs don’t exist here so I had to buy 100 balls and then cut them open and
stuff them with candy! It was epic! Then on Saturday we went like 3 houses over to
the chapel and hid the eggs all over the church grounds. A half hour later we had 8 or 9 little kids
ready to do some looking and finding!
Anywho, it was sooo fun and everyone was so happy and on such a sugar
high ... no complaints … no complaints.
I had a goal to finish
the Book of Mormon for the 2nd time in Spanish on Easter Sunday and I did just
that. It was even more special because
this time around I marked every time it named one of the members of the Godhead. In doing so I was able to grow closer to
God. I really realized how much the
scriptures talk about God and how much He loves and blesses his children. It was wonderful. I figured it was good to finish on Easter
Sunday in remembrance of the joy and hope I have, thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ. It was an incredible experience and has
boosted my on-going testimony of the Book of Mormon.
The other miracle on
that beautiful Easter Sunday was our lesson with Emma. I love Emma. She has
such faith and a while back she told us she would be baptized once God had
confirmed it with her. She says that God
always responds to her in 3s. So we
waited patiently and kept teaching her and yesterday, Easter Sunday, she shared
with us that she received her 3rd confirmation.
WOOOO! So we set a baptismal date
for the 16 of April! I’m so
excited! And also Papa Palafox is
filling out the forms for his baptism.
We set it a week back because of General Conference and so his date is
the 9th of April! Miracles are a happening!
General Conference is
almost here! I can NOT wait! WOOOOOOOOO!
Blessings all around! I’m so
jacked. Can’t wait to hear the prophet’s
voice and hear people talk in ENGLISH!
