So as usual, it has been a tremendous week here in good ole Mexico City. Great country, great food, great people. Just living the dream! The work has been amazing! We found 3 families this week to teach and they all seem super excited to learn about the Gospel! Until now we haven't had too many complete families to teach so it's an awesome blessing from the Lord to have met these wonderfully prepared people. We also were told yesterday that a investigator of 2 years (she's been through A LOT of different missionaries) recieved her answer and wants to be baptized as soon as possible!! She is literally the best and I can't be anymore excited!
Well, that's it as far as work goes. In random, crazy, Mexico news, we buried a dog in our backyard Friday...WE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING! ¡No se preocupen! One of the members told us that a dog was hit by a car and it was just put in a box on the street. The members we live with said it was okay to bury it in the backyard and of course we came to help. I'm not sure how long it was there in the street, but it smelled terrrrible! It was also kind of weird just digging a grave in the dark. And of course it was sad, too.
Now in random, embarassing Elder Foust news, I discovered on Sunday that I can't be trusted eating mole. It was our turn to eat at the Bishop's 2nd counselor's house and of course we had mole. He just barely told us to be careful because mole is messy and stains like crazy. Well, we had it enchulada style and the tortillas were super hard. I was trying to cut one and the tortilla smashed into a big ole puddle of mole. The set up was a perfect for launching mole in the direction of the 2nd counselor's clean, white shirt. I was mortified. It was all over and mole stains are unforgivable. Luckily, the 2nd counselor and his family are beyond chill and thought it was hilarious. I was still sooo embarassed.
Anyway, I don't have too much time to share many more crazy, embarassing stories. Hopefully I'll get up all the pictures from the past few weeks up next week. I love you all and hope you have a great week!
