This week flew by

Hey. this weeks just flew by for us over here. We seriously feel like yesterday was monday. it ́s weird but cool because this week was a lot of fun to be honest.

well Tuesday we went to another area to do divisions with the zone leaders in their area which is right next to ours. It was cool because first we made and ate pancakes and they had MAPLE SYRUP! like the real kind! it was a little different then what I remember but it was really good. DSC03640

Also I got to meet some really nice people and one family is actually family of a part member family that we are teaching. Their oldest daughter isn ́t a member and is one of those young women that like to contradict everything you say, basically she does what you tell her not to do and doesn ́t do what you tell her to do. So we ́ve kind of focused on her family more and she ́s all like ̈oh and when are you going to baptize me? ̈

We put a date for her to be baptized so we pray it will happen .

Anyways well we ́ve been working with some other families, like one side note: they use the last names of the father and mother here which is kind of cool, they are really cool. We are going to baptize their kids because the mom is already a member since almost birth but hasn’t ́t gone in 11 years. Well they are excited to be baptized and are coming to church every sunday and the dad, who isn’t a member is listening also and also their sister in law.

it ́s really cool. oh but one sad note that really bugs me is that one of the families we are teaching have a neighbour that lives in the same building as them, they brought her to church and we taught her and she really likes everything. So we ́ve been visiting them and all of a sudden this week they tell us that their landlord, who lives above them, told them that we (the missionaries) aren’t ́t allowed to visit them anymore or enter their property.

It horrible because the family were really sad about it and even our investigator. I was like really? what did we do? the worst is they didn’t ́t give a reason and when we went and they were there we told them that we wished to talk to them to resolve the problem and say sorry and all that like adults, well they didn’t ́t even want to talk to us. it was like really?Apparently they are super religious in their own faith… but it ́s like wow childlike much. anyways well we are figuring that out.

Also this week we went to help/talk with an investigator-the guy i told you that has basically broken every law in the states, well we went with him and he told us about his problems, economical, emotional and health wise. We shared some scriptures and i think he ́s coming around. he really likes it when we come over to help out. He ́s really nice though. a really cool guy.

 

 

It ́s really interesting how more work seems to be popping up. I really like how we are working me and Elder Vazquez. We get along well. It ́s really cool right now the mission. i hope neither of us get changes this cycle because we are working really hard here. working with the members also is a lot of fun. I just am really enjoying the mission right now. got to work harder but everything is working out so far and i feel the blessings of God in it.

it ́s really weird weather here though. like a lot of rain and wind. for the people  here it ́s cold but you know Canada so don ́t feel it as bad but like it ́s cold and windy one moment and the next it ́s like super hot and sunny. it ́s weird. but oh wells. well i hope everything is going well. i ́m working on taking more pictures. this Monday that comes we are going to Teotihuacan again but they are doing some cool special event for Easter there so i ́ll try to take some cool pictures of it. Always praying for you all!

love Elder Turnbull
