Wahoo it’s P-day! This week has been pretty normal but exciting! First Happy Birthday Dad! Well, on the 9th but it’s all the same right? I hope you had a good one and you ate cake and Mexican food (;

She is adorable.
More and more every week I feel better here in Tepic. We have been focusing on two investigator families. The Bustamentes and Karyme and Lizuet family.The Bustamentes are a really cute family with kids. They were actually one of the only investigators that were being taught in our area before we came here. We had a really good lesson with the mom, Paty on Saturday. She opened up to us and told us how she has really bad depression problems and how she wants to find something to make her life better. I know this gospel is exactly what she needs but she and her family won’t do what we ask of them, no reading no praying, not attending church. And even on Saturday she finally agreed to church, it was such an amazing lesson. We went to pick her up Sunday morning. She was making breakfast for her kids and would meet us at the church in 5 min and we thought she really meant it... But they didn’t show up. We were pretty bummed. We aren’t sure if we are going to be able to continue teaching her. It is hard when people don’t put effort into their conversion. It’s really hard to see that this church is what people are searching for and they just won’t put the effort into finding that out for themselves.
With Karymes and Lizuet family we
are really excited. When we first found this cute little family they were
outside their house and when we introduced ourselves the oldest daughter Lizuet
(18) had actually had lessons from missionaries when she was 12 and agreed to
have us come back. If you remember Karyme her younger sister who is 12 actually
came with us two Sundays ago to church without us even having to teach her. We
now have been able to teach her and her sister. At first her mom didn’t really
like us coming over and wasn’t super friendly but wow so has done a total 180!
She loves having us there now. She will sit and listen to the lessons and ask
really good questions! She even asked us last time we were there if she invited
us to have tacos if we would come. Of course that answer is yes! It was
adorable. And not to mention her dad has always been on his phone when we are
there and shows no interest in us at all but yesterday he asked us to tell him
about the restoration and SMILED at us when we left. Hna Muro and I both were
totally shocked! Ah I can just see this cute family now all being baptized. Oh
that would be perfect! We will keep working with them!

Not much else has been different! Our zone leaders finally got us a fridge wahoooo! Oh on Friday we have interviews with our Mission president. Hna Muro and I were told that Hna Clayton will be coming on divisions with us after our interviews... we are pretty nervous. We are supposed to have appointments set in stone but no one here really keeps their commitments so we will see how that goes... That’s all I have for now. I love you all so much! Have an amazing week!
