Week 91

Down On the Farm

This week on the farm of our neighbor, the pig, almost hung itself.  We were just about to go to bed and we just heard the pig screaming and the dogs barking, so we went out and the pig was tied up and wrapped up with a rope caught around his belly, so we went and got the owners and cut him lose.  Luckily my comp lived on a farm his whole life, and they took care of that situation.

We have the 5 baptisms set for this tuesday!  One of our couples got married this last thursday!  Honestly the weirdest couple I´ve ever seen get married, but its all good!  The other couple gets married tomorrow in the morning!  We were going to marry them last tuesday, but the wife "didnt buy a dress" and they got in a huge fight, so we had to calm them down, and reset the wedding.  But alls well.
Literally no one in this city is married.... ever.  Its honestly sad, but its just not important to them.  The real meaning of marriage and love has been lost here in tezuitlan.  And in the world.  Courting and searching has been changed for quick relationships, and sadness.  

We had a cool lesson the other day.  We accidently knocked a door looking for a member, and an older man walked out and the smell of smoke was overwhelming, but nonetheless we contacted him and put a lesson down and he said yes.  We ended up not being able to go to the lesson but a different day we passed by, and he let us in, so we taught repentance and baptism, and he accepted!  We honestly had very little hope going into the lesson, but we learned our lesson that God really does prepare people for this gospel, and we cant forget that!
Love you all!
Elder Hodson
