Week 34

Te invito una coca

This week went well.  Tuesday i did divisions with my district leader, and i went to his area.  We didnt manage to have any lessons, but it was still a good day, and i gained a little bit more of confidence with street contacts.  Basically i learned a white person here in mexico can do whatever he want haha.  Story to come later from divisions.
The rest of the week was just lots of searching and little finding.  Our investigators have a decent amount of trials and things they need to get over to be able to be baptized, but i have faith in them.
On sunday we only had 3 people come to church, but we were able to have the interview of miriam, and she has her baptism set for this saturday at 4 for all of you that can come.  So thats exciting at least.  She knows everything, just sometimes she gets over her head with work from her kids and husband.  Makes me realize the hard work a mom has to do for the kids and home, and then the husband comes home and just wants to do nothing, but it should be the opposite.  Oh well, future lessons right?
Something that ive definitely been developing this change has been patience.  Thats a good thing, but for everyone that has developed patience, has gone through lots and lots and lots of annoying things, but thats what i need, so its all good.
Ok story time, on wednesday when we did divisions, we ran into a guy that called us over.  He had really blonde hair and super blue eyes, so we asked where he was from, and he said hungary, but he moved to mexico when he was young.  So we kept talking and he tells us that he was a missionary, and that he baptized lots of people in his mission.  So we asked him how and this was his method.  He would find girls that were fairly attractive, and he was an attractive guy, and he would invite them to drink a coke with them.  Then he would flirt a little and say, no we cant have girlfriends, but we would really like to teach your family, and after the mission ill come back to marry you.  Then he would find and baptize families hahaha.  Absolutely terrible, but people here are weird when you have blonde hair and blue eyes.  So for all my friends in mexico with blonde hair and blue eyes, use your gifts of god to baptize... 
Thats really the only funny story i have.  And all i really have to say.
Love you friends and families,
Elder Hodson
