Wow, como vuelan las semanas

The days are like weeks, and the weeks are like days. One of the truest statements I have ever heard concerning the life on the mission.

This week was good :) 
Tuesday we had this super awesome member present with Jessica and the Relief Society president. I love member presents! The spirit was so strong and the President was crying and she bore her testimony. But sadly Jessica still didn’t come to church this week, so she no longer is on a date to be baptized :(

Then we went to mutual with the young men and women. We went to the corn maze (sorry forgot my camera) Karina (English class) and her 2 kids came as well. It was an awesome activity to help fellowship Karina. It’s really interesting teaching her, because she isn’t open really to have us meet to talk about the gospel and the church, but she is interested. So we just slyly sneak in lessons and doctrine and stuff. So she is an investigator without knowing it.

Then another miracle in the corn maze. We wore our church clothes to the maze for some reason. During the activity I was wondering why we wore them. But as we were walking to the cars, a girl came up to us and asked if we were missionaries. Then she asked if we knew some of the other elders in the zone. They had been teaching her family. So we asked them and they said that they had been trying to get in contact with them for forever. So we were able to get her number, and they have an appointment this week :)

This week has been good with English class, they have improved so much and it is really starting to show! Love English class!

Funny story: We were at lunch with a member, and they were asking Elder Haris about his family. He was trying to tell them what his dad does for work. He tried to say "my dad works for a coal mine," but instead he said "my dad works for an a** mine." I was just dying!!!!!!!!! Some of the things trainees do are so funny.

Then on Friday we went on exchanges. I went back to Goshen with Elder Blood. Man was that just a blast!! So much fun being with Elder Blood again. Saturday we had dinner with Antonia, Cesar, and Julio and it was just awesome to see them again! 

Sunday: AWESOME. So Karina (from English class) and her three kids came to church and liked it enough that they said they would come back next week :0 AWESOME! Her daughter was singing all the primary songs and enjoying it. And Fransisco came to church too :)

Pic: a selfie when we rode our bikes forever to an appointment, and then couldn’t find their house, and they didn’t answer their phone. So I guess the blessing is that I burned calories from the long ride ;)

Love ya’ll

Elder Porter
