Somos Extraños

Hey everyone!
We had such a good week here in Santa Elena, we worked hard and definitely experienced some miracles :) To start the week off we taught this couple that we had contacted like 2 months ago and had never taught, but we literally saw them all the time in the street selling bread. We always tried to put a date and time that we could teach them, but they were always busy. We saw them walking in the street and we were like, okay we're teaching you right now, it's only going to take 10 minutes. We usually don't like teaching in the street, but I guess we had no other option.. We taught them and put another date that we could visit them, when we got to their house they were making all of their bread!! Oh man.. it smelt just like home.. We taught them the Plan of Salvation and then they gave us some pan to take home... definitely one of the best lessons ever haha. We also had zone conference this week!! Ahh, that just got me even more pumped for General Conference, I was on like a spiritual high after that so I can't even wait to hear from the prophet!! Ahhh I just can't stop smiling when I think about it! But our mission president was like.. ya know many people may say you're weird, and you know, their right! Everyone was like.. uhh? Excuse me?! And he's like, if you think about what you're doing, if you think about it, how many people do you know in that study their scriptures for hours everyday, pray more than 3 times a day? And not only that, how many people do you know that walk for hours everyday, rain or shine for 18-24 months preaching the gospel? Yeah, we're weird! But I am so happy to be such a weirdo, we're preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I love knowing that I represent my Savior and Redeemer! He also pointed out how Jesus is our example in our life, he didn't need to be baptized, he created the water that he was baptized in. I had never thought of that.. how cool right?! Ahh I just love this gospel, it really is the best and truly the easiest path. When you think of the life of those many people on the street, or that are addicted to alcohol or drugs, and that can't get along with their family or anybody.. is that really the easiest life? that's what Satan wants us to think, but living in peace and harmony with our brothers and knowing that we are children of God is definitely the better path. Okay, so the miracle of the week.. we went to church yesterday and were introduced to an investigator, he lives in our area and he came to church on his own. He has read the Book of Mormon 7 times, has a really strong testimony of the gospel and we were like.. why aren't you baptized? He said he just needs animo and then he would be. Oh I got animo for you hermano, we're going to do everything we can for him because he HAS to be baptized! 
Well, that's it for this week folks! Have a fantastic first week of April, don't do anything too mean for April Fools tomorrow. I know my mom will put toothpaste in oreo's.. it's a classic :)
