Adventures in Jaen

so i had a pretty eventful week! there is a new italian place that is pretty close...SO GOOD! we have gone there 2 pdays in a row (forgot pics :/ ) but its amazing! and on tuesday...sooo hot! it got over 120 degrees with humidity! so that was kinda torchure. Thursday i got to spend 24 hours with Elder Headrick from my group, we were doing a work exchange and it was awesome! he's such a great guy, and we kicked butt as far as lesson wise. while with him we were contacting talking to people and we found a guy with 6 fingers! so crazy so we taught him a little lesson. and our recent convert gave us some super good popcorn. that night our neighbor has a coconut tree right outside of our house. So we got to climb up the tree and get our own coconuts and cut them open and drink and eat them!! so good! (pic at bottom of us) During that work exchange we visited Miguel and he is doing awesome!! we finally got his wife in on the lessons and she is more interested than he is! she is pumped for marraige and she wants to progress...its been such a blessing! After Miguel gave us this drinkable fudge with cream and colored chocolate balls on top...amazing! Saturday we passed by a investigator and his TV was on and i saw the trailer for the new captain america...i cried a looked soooo good!!  i have to wait till i get home...NNNOOOOOOO!!!! then on sunday we passed by miguel again to help him in his shop and after he gave us this drink that was natural yogurt with chocolate pudding. But it ended up tasting like cheese...🤔 i don'

t know how. it was kinda good tho. and he showed us this video LOOK IT UP!!! its called 

"Condor Pasa 100 años de Magia" type it in like that and its like a 4 min video and it shows beautiful places...all in Perú! So that was my week i Love you guys!!! and talk to you guys next week!!!

A Ward Baptism

Honestly sending that package wore me out took so long! What has happened this week...Miguel is doing great! we finally got a lesson with him and his wife, and they came to church last sunday!! they are getting married in June and will be baptized soon after. Last p day i sprained my ankle really bad playing volleyball so that made this week a bit hard but im doing better now. OH and one of my belts broke i sent a pic so you can send it to missionary mall. Our ward had a baptism this week! his name is Luis and he is a giant! but he is going to be such a great convert (also pic below) and thats pretty much all i can remember my brain is literally dead! but the package should get there Monday. the little boy is a kid that lives next to us that we always hang out with. his name is aaron. I hope you guys have a great week in cancun! Love you guys!!

Seeds into Chocolate

This was actually a boring week, we did a little service project for a recent convert, we built a brick wall for them. we went to ward council and nobody showed up...again! our ward is not very good at all is really frustrating! We watched a video clip about the tabernacle in provo that burnt down and the process of rebuilding it back into a temple. At the end they showed a few photos of the inside...beautiful!! I am going there ASAP when i get home! We also had Zone meeting so it was fun to get to know the zone a little bit better. Our investigator M accepted to get married to his wife! they are starting their papers and my comp and i are buying them the cake..haha. He also took us back into his shop and taught us some more on how the seeds they get from the plants, turns into chocolate. its quite interesting.  Thats about it for the week, I looked all around for a scarf but i couldn't find one, i got dads ties ready, but the zone leaders are going up to a cool place so im going to have them look for something up there. so ill send it next week. I love you guys!!!!
