Hi !


How is everyone?

So this week turned out to be pretty good.  We had a lot of plans to have the members visit with us, and a few had to cancel.. but it all turned out well at the end of the week.

The elders had a baptism, and we ended up going because we had invited some investigators, and right when we got there it starting POURING!  Rain. But we called our investigators and they were near the chapel but becase it was raining, they didn't have any protection.  Well, we didn't either but we went out and all ran to the chapel.  The son of one of the investigators Hna. D. got soaked so the elders lent him a baptismal jumper. :) he's just a little too young to be baptized, but almost there. 

We had our Ward Conference yesterday- and it was amazing!  4 of the people we are teaching were able to go, and in the 2nd hour what we learned was outstanding.  It was all centered on 'hermandad'.. or 'friendshiping' in the ward.  That we all as brothers and sisters really need to treat everyone, especially that goes to church as a friend, invite them to talk with us.  That is something I was thinking in my own home, or in my own situation.  Sometimes when we already know people we are comfortable with where we are, and who we are friends with.  And when new people come to church we just shrug them off, but that is not how we should be.  As brothers and sisters- children of God we need to befriend everyone.  Also, when we see our friends in the church doing something that we know isn't good.. we should help them out, and help them understand.  More than anything we shouldn't judge.  In my personal study today I found a scripture in DyC that testifies of this. 

 24 Behold, am God and have spoken it; these commandments are of me, and were given unto my servants in their weakness, after the manner of their language,  that they might come to understanding.
25 And inasmuch as they erred it might be made known;
 26 And inasmuch as they sought wisdom they might beinstructed;
 27 And inasmuch as they sinned they might be chastened,that they might repent;
 28 And inasmuch as they were humble they might bemade strong, and blessed from on high, and receiveknowledge from time to time.
hmm... it now makes more sense in spanish, haha.  But our purpose as members isn't to judge others, but help them out. We are also not perfect, and i am learning now more than ever that I am not perfect as well.. But I can also work on being better. 

Things are going pretty well here in my area, the members are great, the people also very nice.  I still haven't tried tortas ahogadas (basically sandwiches with a sauce that makes it so the sandwich is drowning.. traditional here in Guadalajara) but someday maybe. 

Have a great week!

 Baptism of the elders... it was raining pretty hard outside, but we went to get our investigators out on the street, and we forget umbrellas and everything.. so we got soaked, but i can say that it was pretty fun. :)
 I taught a family in my ward today how to make Better than Anything Cake!  Also mexican style because they don't have butterscotch here.. so instead we used cajeta. :) also.. YUM
