This week was super long and hard, but we pushed through and had some good moments. 

We always have lunch with the Stake President on Thursday and I love their family. They are great. What was super awesome this week was that they played Les Mis music during lunch. YES! After only listening to mormon tabernacle choir the past month and a half, it was nice to hear some of my favorite music in the world. 

Our super awesome investigator Silvia (Andy´s mom) killed it this week. We moved her baptisimal date up for this Saturday and she is so ready. She has so much faith. To not work on Sundays here requires soo much faith, and she has committed everything to the gospel. She is a great example. Some missionaries from another church keep on passing by her business and they tell her that the mormons don't believe in Jesus and don't use the bible and she told us she told them that the mormons always use the bible and every page of the book of mormon has references to the bible. She is awesome. We found out that she barely doesn't live in our ward boundaries, so we have to get a hold of the mission president and ask him if we can still baptize her or if the other missionaries have to. I hope we can and continue to teach them cuz they are straight up awesome. 

The new family we taught last week is awesome, but they aren´t married, so that will take a lot of time to work through. I didn´t realize they weren´t married and we were teaching a lesson and I kind of spaced out because their accents are thick and I had a hard time understanding what was going on and we were teaching the family and my companion turned to me, so I started talking about like oh yeah the family is really important and a lot of people don't think marriage is important and they can just live together and then their faces went red and I was like oh crap.....probably one of the most awkward experiences of my life, but sometimes as missionaries we have to be bold.

This week is carnival, so everyone is out in the streets chucking eggs and flour at each other, so we have to stay inside today and tomorrow except for planned visits.
