La Prudencia

This week was a pretty good one.  So me and my comp we have been contacting like freakin slaves this last week and we had absolutely no success in that. but one thing that i have learned here in the mission would have to be the prudencia because we kept on getting appointments with people that we contacted in the street and every time that we went over they had lied to us or in that moment they told us that they didn't want anything anymore. So... this last sunday (yesterday) we had one appointment  that honestly i did not believe that they were going to be their if we went. but... something told us that we should go yet again to this appointment. and when we got there they opened up the door and let us through and told us that they would like to prepare themselves so that they could be baptized. Honestly that was quite a shocker because i did not think that they were going to open the door. That just goes to show that God works in His time and we just have to keep doing our part until He wants things to come to pass. 

PS my new comp is soooo cool and my area is the greatest.  It is way bigger than my last area so it will take a little longer to contact every person:D:D:D 

Until the next.

The only thing that i can think that happened this week that is worth telling is the experience that happened in this big bus. So me any my DL we were going to pick up some medicine for my ingrown toenail (which just wont go away) . and when we got on this bus was just screaming everything that mexico has to offer or if i were to explain to someone what it is like here. well... this experience pretty much sums up what it is like down here 24/7. because right when we got on the driver had a huge rum and was drunker than anything else that i have ever seen and he just kept on drinking with his buds that were there with him. and then when we walked to the back of the bus trying to get away from the man drinking we found yet another man in one of the back seats throwing up into a plastic bag(normal right?) but when he got done he didn't even tie up the bag or anything and just stuffed it under the seat (not so normal...). and then the guy that i was sitting next to had the biggest tumor on his face that i have ever seen in my whole life. and also when we were coming back the driver and his buds were just enjoying a good ol mary jane. and so that was... interesting... but yeah that was just an interesting time of this last week. Needless to say that mexico will never be America. 
Working with the less actives has been a wonderful part of my mission.  the dog i am holding is one of the less actives. they love feeling the spirit and i love bringing it to them. 
the one picture is of some fish we put in tacos and the other is a street in my area i will be leaving. i will miss all the people i have come to love. i love mexico and i love the people.
i am so grateful for all you did for me growing up. i thought i appreciated it then but for how hard it has been here in mexico i honestly don't think i was grateful enough. the hard times of a mission (not complaining) have humbled me to the point of love beyond measure for you guys. tell hudson he may never really get it until life gets hard like mine has been but to try to be grateful and not hateful like i was. me going without and seeing so many go without and being treated so bad has changed me. 
thank you for all your support while i have been here.
as for my toe, i know i have spent a boat load of money on it and wish i wasn't spending so much on it all the time, i just never get enough time to give my foot a rest from the shoe. i think the fix here is not what you said in the states, sorry for using so much extra money but i don't know what else to do, i think this is now my $5,000 dollar toe:D:D:D
wish i knew where i was going but i will tell you next week, i sure will miss the people here:D:D:D

Brains, kidney, skin, nose, organ.

So this week we have contacted and contacted and met with innactives and had success in little ways but not in "reportable" ways.  i know the lord is not unhappy with me but i would like a little more to be able to "report on".  one of the examples is this man named Juan who has a taco place and he pretty much makes the best tacos/carnitas that i have ever tried. And we started out going to him about 6 months ago. and he taught us how to make carnitas and all about his salsas and all that jazz, just slowly making friends with him. and then after a while he started to give us a discount on the tacos that he sold. and the longer and longer that we have gone there the tacos have just been given to us for free as he loves his missionaries. and so when ever he just sees us walking by he will just scream at us to come on over and give us like 2 tacos for free. but ya know at the beginning that was all cool but after a while he started to want me to try every type of taco that he had. and ya know it was not all that bad at the beginning. like he gave us a taco of bacon, of falopian tube, of skin with mean. ya know the normal. but then just this last week... oh dear... he just decided to top if off with a taco of. kidney, skin, nose, and the organs that he had left over... and when i saw him cutting up all of those things i was just dreading the moment of when i was going to have to put that in my mouth and act like it was soooo freakin delicious because he is always there to reassure that this taco is the best one that we have ever tried. (and  all of the other tacos that he has given us believe me. have been the most delicious tacos that i have tried here... but until this monster came....) so i took my first bite and it was not as bad as i thought as it was going to be (thank you spicy jabonero salsa).  and after i finished it he asked me how it was and i gave him the reassurance that it was so freakin good and that i would have eaten another one if i was not so darn full. ;D so haha yeah that was my great experience with one of the weirdest tacos/carnitas that i have ever eaten in my whole entire life and I hope that when i leave here the other missionaries will be  able to continue this relationship and that we will sometime be able to share what they love with him as he has continued to share what "he" loves with us:D:D:D 

and the next thing would have to be the weird quesadilla that i ate this last week (of a less active ) and by weird i mean like "brain matter weird" almost halloween weird. so we always go with this hermana esquivias to help her out so that she can sell more and get a little bit more money every week. and she usually invites us to eat a few quesadillas. but this time she had made a "specialty quesadilla" one of brain. and she insisted that i just HAD to try this quesadilla.  so... how could i say no. so she made me a quesadilla of brain matter and i just had memories of the first time that i ate brain in chimalhuacan and that made it even worse. but when i tried it. it still had the same weird texture but the flavor was not quite as bad as the first time. ( and the good ole spicy salsa really saved my life. alway does :D)  and yeah. it was not my favorite that i have ever had but at the end of the count it was not all that bad as some food here will always be like halloweenish to me:D:D

Until next time.
