Week 10- "um...............Trump?"

-a youth in the ward named Martin is incredibly pumped to start his mission, teaches well, and has resolved to accompany us to all our citas every time we call him. So we now basically have a 3rd missionary!
-free tamales from Hermana Juve every Tues. and Sat!
-the whole wet season blowing in in one week and raining for 3 days. The temperature is aboput 60 now and it feels AMAZING to not be sweating for the first time in 2 months
-Me: "Okay, so how do you think you pronounce my name chico?"
A kid, after seeing that I'm from the United States: "um...............Trump?"
-Improvement in piano skills! Called to Serve is my favorite right now!
-a dog being nice and friendly to me until it raised its leg and tried to pee on my boot

Also had a really cool spiritual thing happen this week! So we got a tip that this little girl from an inactive member family has just turned 8 so we've started visiting them a bit to see if she wants to be baptized. The family doesn´t make it to church that much because the dad has to work all day everyday, 4:30 am to 10:30pm driving his taxi and after paying his boss and the gas, they don't have a ton left. But the little girl, Evolit, has gotten really excited to be baptized, to follow the example of her older brother. As a result, they came to church this Sunday for the first time in months! And then the father told me after that he wants to feel spiritually ready to baptize his daughter so they've resolved to start coming to church! Our hope is that the Spirit continues to touch their lives and they develop a habit of coming to church weekly.

Prayers are always answered! Hope you all have a great week!
