September 1, 2014

Hey so everything is going good :) We had a good week. 4 investigators came to church!! That was super exciting. I don't have much time today!! But Elder Morris is a boss. His Spanish is awesome and I'm learning a lot from him and mine is getting a lot better too. I haven't crashed on my bike out here yet or popped a tire so I'm happy about that!

 Nobody has messed with us or gone after our bikes or anything. Though last night when we realized on our way home that everyone was drunk it kind of concerned me. Just because many of them were driving and we were riding home. But eh stuff happens I wasn't too worried. As long as I'm being obedient to the Commandments and to the mission rules I know the Lord is going to protect me and watch over me. 

Last Monday we had a sweet dinner. It was like a little Taco Boat. I sent the picture of what they looked like when they were given to us and then what we put on to eat them! They are really really good :) 

We did some service. We helped remove a bunch of grass and level the dirt in a member’s yard. It was hard work and I have a good amount of blisters but it was fun! After they made us some food. It was the best spaghetti I've had in a really long time.

Oh!!!!! I learned how to make a really really good salsa!!!!! Its hot. But like I can make some that is less spicy for you guys when I make it for you someday!! That's what all the pictures of the food are from. I have the recipe! Woo Hoo!!! I'm so excited!!!!!

We have a couple new investigators and I'll give you the highlights. A 20 year old girl named Myra and her 14 year old brother Alejandro. Their mom got baptized 2 weeks ago and now they want to get baptized. Myra is awesome! She prays and she comes to church and she is working to make changes in her life to better herself.

We also have V. He is like in his mid 30's. He's super cool! He loves the Book of Mormon and says he believes its true and he even came to church on Sunday. Unfortunately we will probably have to hand him over to the English missionaries cause he understands English better :(

We also met this 17 year old girl at McDonald's named A. She is Baptist but she wants to learn more about our church. We taught her the Restoration and about the Book of Mormon and she was just getting it and understanding perfectly! It was super cool!

We have a couple more but we haven't had much progress with them so I'll maybe mention them another time.

Other than that not much has happened. We are just out doing our best. Working, being obedient, and trying to talk to everyone and help people come closer to Christ. 

I'm sorry this email has been a little short. I'll do better next week! I hope everyone has a good week and has the opportunity to serve a neighbor or friend! 

I'll talk to you next week!!!

-Elder Zachary Gore :)
