No pisen en un pavo

Hello my my fellow amigos.

So this week had been awesome, partly due to the facts that we finally got bikes. Sure, mine is basically a rock, but at least it works and is faster than walking. Tuesday, the first day we road them, it started pouring around in the evening, and we were biking in the rain for about an hour and a half without jackets. Yes, I was wet. But it was awesome! That day we also set the record for the most people we've talked to in one day, 17. When I say talked too, I don't mean just like "hey, here's card," I mean lhaving a conversation with them. President Wolfert, our mission president, has asked us try to do this with 10 people each day. On Wednesday, Elder Laney and I talked to EVERYBODY we saw. Sometimes it was like, "hey, there's a person across the street" or "hey, theres some kinds playing soccer 200 ft away." We talked to 34 people that day. Well, we actually probably talked to close to 50, but had converstation with 34 of them. We discovered its super easy to talk to people in apartment complexes, becuase there are so many people living so close. We left one appoint with an hour to get to another. It took us 50 minutes to go about 200 yds becuase of how many people we talked to. It ended up taking us an hour and a half to get to the next appointment, amaking us half an hour late. If we hadn't talked to anybody, we could have made it there in 10 minutes. When talknig to 34 people, we saw a lot of cool miracles. It was a good day. Now we just have to figure at the balance between talking to everybody and making to appointments on time.

Thursday, amazingly, we only ate at one members house, and at the branch's Thanksgiving party. The four of us missionaries did super funny skit at the party. I won't explain the skit, but thats where the title of this post comes from. You all should just know it was hilarious and that you should wish you could have seen it.

Skipping foward to Saturday, we went to see Stephanie, and gave her last and final batismal date. She's had other baptismal dates that have came and went, but now is her time. Her biggest hold is still smoking, so we're praying like crazy that she'll be able to quit. She really wants to be baptize, has a lot of faith and has an amazing testimony of the Gospel.

That afternoon, the english ward had a baptism, and we invited alll our investigators to it. Only one family said they would come, and gues what, they did! Tuesday, we're gonig to talk about baptism with them, becuase they had never seen a baptism like that before, and we're gonig to invite them to be baptized.

Rewind to Tuesday really fast. One of our newer investigators that we found last week basically excepted to be baptized, but they want to talk about with the dad, who was always worknig whenever we taught them. Unfortunantly, we still haven't been able to met with the whole family yet, but its coming soon.

Fastforward to Sunday. We found somebody super prepared to recieve the Gospel. We actaully had talked to the other 2 people that lived in that apartment before, and we went looking to talk to them, but then we found him. He said he was looking for something to guid him in his life, and also basically asked when he could come to church. We definitly can help him with both of these questions.

Wow, I wrote an essay today. Please don't grade it. I hope its entertaining enough to read. :)

Thanks everybody!

Pasen un bien semana
