Well, last week was good. It was my birthday week and everyone wanted to feed us, so we had lots and lots of food. They didn't throw a surprise party for me like they did for Sister Kletzli, but I'm glad because we were busy meeting with people.
So our main people we are meeting with are Sandra and Sunsoles, Luis, and Yurleidy. Yurleidy is a Columbian. She is cool, but isn't reliable, but we think there is a reason behind that. She used to meet with us all the time. We are going to talk with her and see what's up. Luis is from Peru, strange guy but cool at the same time. He has the biggest desire to be baptized. Like he asked when he can be baptized, so we set a date for the 17th. We may have to push it back because we haven't taught him everything, but hopefully it will work out.
Sandra and Sunsoles are our best investigators, although they are stubborn, but it's ok. We have had a hard time getting them to church, but on Saturday we invited them. The mom, Sunsoles, said, “No, like not even!” (because she is embarrassed that she has been gone the last couple weeks and doesn't get along with some of the members). But then we asked Sandra if she would like to come and she said yes, so that was cool. So we went by and picked her up on Sunday. Then we took her and Sunsoles to a family home evening that our mission president, Presidente Pack, invited us to, with like 30 other people. Well, it was good and they enjoyed it. I think it gave them an idea that Aranjuez is just a small part of the church.
Also, funny thing is before I got here they thought that Americans didn't know how to make good food. Well, now that I'm here I have shown them that we make some bomb food, like banana bread, some awesome cookies, cinnamon rolls and cookie brownies and stuff like that. Well, that stuff has been more like sweets, but we made them some sandwiches for Sunday. We all weren't going to have time to eat, so we offered to make sandwiches for them as well. Here in Spain they eat a lot of sandwiches, but they are on the long sticks of bread (I think they are called French bread or baguettes in the states). But we made them some sandwiches with the long sticks of bread and called them Mexican sandwiches. We had chicken cooked in Mexican salsa with onions, guacamole and, for the American touch, ranch. Well, this sounds like it should be put on a tortilla, but we put it on bread. Me and my comp really like it, but I thought it would be some weird elder invention, but Sandra and Sunsoles really liked it. It surprised me! They told us we have to make it again sometime soon, so we will see.
But yeah, that's my sum up of the two weeks in one. Hope you all have a great week!
