Well first I'll answer the questions like usual.
What did the investigators think about the Temple and Family History? The investigators just said that it was really good so I'm not really sure.
How did the surgery go for the investigator that you donated blood for? For the man, the surgery went pretty well I think! He was out walking around the other day. He had a surgery on his face and on his neck. Not exactly sure what he had but he just had to have blood to replace his blood or something.
Do you have transfers every 6 weeks? Transfers are every 6 weeks, yes.
How did you kill that Garrobo? The Garrobo was alright the meat was kinda hard. To kill the Gorrobo first we had to cut its head off then put its body in the fire. When you hold it over the fire it still moves and it's super crazy. Then just put it in a pot with stuff in it.
I hope you didn't just start hacking it's head off while it was still alive. Yes, it was still alive.
Do you buy them at the store? We bought it from a member. I'm not sure why she had it.
Are they sold for the purpose of eating them? Yes, they are sold for the purpose of eating.
How much did it cost? It cost $6.00 but 4 of us paid for it.
How did you know how to skin it and cook it? Skinning it was easy but we didn't know how to cook it so the member did it for us.
Now This week was pretty good!
First we got to go to the Temple and do a session which was super awesome! It was in Spanish so it was a little long but still really cool! The thing I love the most is that it's just so quiet and you could hear a pin drop. But it's the most spiritual place in all the world!
This week we also did a fast so that our zone could find people to baptize before the end of this change. All day on Monday we looked for new people to teach but it was actually really fun because the Zone Leaders made a scavenger hunt to help us find more people! We had things like:
Find a man named Mario and invite him to church.
Talk to 5 families.
Talk to 5 people wearing blue shirts.
Dance in 3 LPE (LPE is when we talk to someone that we have never talked to before.)
Wash a dog or cat.
Take a picture with a really old lady.
These things helped us be more motivated to find people. The Elders who had the most points won and of course me and Calero beat everyone ;) But that day we were running up and down every street talking to everyone.
We made French toast for some members because they were wondering what we eat in the United States. It turned out really good and they loved it. We had an activity where were watched Meet the Mormons and invited everyone to come and watch it. We ended up getting like 70 people at the church.
Something that I learned this week is that everyone wants to fight with us about our religion. Yesterday someone tried telling us that our fist bump was of the devil... and Elder Calero just pulled out some scriptures. It's really sad. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true!
That sums it up for this week!
