Sonja Merrill! What a great name, for a delightfully cute little baby! Excited to see her soon. ;)
This week was great! Elder N and I have been working hard, and we´ve been finding a lot of great people! JP, our new "escogido" came to church on Sunday with his granddaughter, who is 16 years old. He stopped drinking coffee almost a week ago, after we taught him about the Word of Wisdom. He said on the third day he was very, very tempted to drink coffee but he got through it all and didn´t take a sip. I´m proud of the man. It just goes to show that he understands the doctrine of Christ and is very eager to make needed changes in his life. He will be baptized on the 18th of June.
The members have been helping us a lot this week, and a lot of them have been telling us to call them if we need help with our visits. The ward is participating a lot more in mission work than before, so we´re all excited.
Elder W, one of the missionaries who served here in Chaparrastique more than a year ago, came to Church yesterday!! He came with his sister because he is preparing to start up a business here in El Salvador. He will be selling jams and jellies and importing them to the States to sell. He gave us a jar of mango jelly! Elder N and I are going to buy peanut butter and sandwich bread and eat sandwiches for breakfast this week. A few investigators came to Church to see him too (a few of them hadn´t been coming xD), so that was good. He´s a good guy, and participated a lot in the gospel principles class. His Spanish actually wasn´t too rusty and his sister even read a scripture in Spanish :)
Is there anything I like to eat now that I hated when I got here?
Absolutely not. Since my first day here, I have loved everything people give us to eat. As you know though, I´m not picky at all. I love pupusas, plantains, beans, rice, chicken, beef soup, chow mein, tortillas, etc. It´s all good! There was a part of my mission when I stopped liking the tortillas here (in Apopa), but I started eating them again here. I usually eat one for lunch and two for dinner (they´re a lot different from the tortillas we eat in the States, trust me). You should Google Image them.
Hope you have an amazing week, Mom!
I love you!
