Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

I lie not when I say we didn't do much this week. This week there was a bunch of election stuff for the equilalent of a governor, so everybody was into that and weren't really home...pretty much everything fell through this week. That, and then yesterday we had to stay insideall day. Not even exaggerating lol. Went to church, went back home. It was nice though because I had tons of time to read the scriptures. It was one of the only true vacation days I've had in the mission =). I read 150 pages of the scriptures. That was pretty much the highlight of my week lol. Nobody came to church and we don't have anybody with baptismal date....They're all sinners....Nah just kidding =). We did have one good thing though. We went to go teach Diana (got baptized last week) and she's doing awesome. In church they had given her one of those Teachings of the Prophets manuals and she's been not only reading it, but applying it and teaching it to her co-workers! He says she really likes helping people and she wants to serve a mission. Oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about =). Other than that there's really not much else to tell....
Funny thing of the week: We had an appointment with a recent convert at 7:00pm one day and we agreed to meet in a park so he could show us where he lives. We sat down at a table and some weird street bum started talking to us. He said he was a pastor, which he wasn't lol, and he started talking to us about a bunch of junk. He took off his shoes and stomped on the ground saying that God gave him his feet and he's not afraid of the devil. Then he went on about how this water (the brand is called "Cielo" which means heaven in english) he had was sent by God from the heavens. Then he started singing religious songs. It was really funny because we were in park and there were other people watching him be weird lol. Then he offered us some of his water, tried to give us 3 pennies each and some other weird stuff. You want to know how long he talked to us?.....30 minutes lol, and he only stopped talking because we cut him off and left. Heh....only in the mission =)
