Cripples Don't Like Me

Dear family and friends,

On  Tuesday,
we visited Jacob and Leydi and taught them the plan of salvation. We then visited Nelson and taught him the same, invited him to be baptized and he accepted. He has been reading and show real interest, so I'm hoping he will be one to progress. We went and chatted with Fernando Espitia and his wife, a less active that we are trying to get to the temple. They are really spiritual, but also really old, so they have a hard time getting to church.

Wednesday
Our lessons with Lesyanis and Freddy fell through, then we had ward council and a meeting with the Ward mission leader

Thursday
We visited Carmen Causil, a less active that came to church last week. We taught her the gospel of Christ, which turned out to be a pretty inspired lesson to figure out what she needs. Then, we had  a lesson with Lesyanis. She says she isn't ready to be baptized yet, but that she will be ready next month. I'm not too worried about it because she is genuine aobut it and she keeps coming to church and reading, so she'll get there.

Friday
Another lesson with Jacob and Leydi. It was really hot. Jacob's younger brother is investigating now. We had another lesson with the espitia family. The title comes from stuff that happened this day. A dog went kind of crazy and was barking at us. The same dog had done it before, but the gate was open this time so it came out and startled us a bit. It only has three legs, so I wasn't super worried about it. On the way back from the Espitia's house, we walked past a guy with a limp and a cane. He looked at me as we passed and I could tell he was crazy and I thought he was trying to ask for money. But about five seconds later, he starts yelling and waving his cane around. Seems he doesn't like white people. He was crazy, but it was super scary and he kept following us, but he can't move very fast, so we hid in a members house as he walked past, still yelling somewhat rude things.

Saturday
We visited Jacob and Lady again and basically just went around inviting everyone to church.

Sunday
Lesyanis came and brought Freddy, and a less active family also came. But church was kind of a let down.

That's basically the week. It was pretty good, and we still have high hopes for conversion

Love you all,

The food here is a lot better. I don't know why, but it is
