Happy Valentine's Day! (Guess what, this holiday means nothing here) Feb. 16, 2015

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAREST MOTHER!!! I couldn't stop thinking about you yesterday! So Sorry I didn't get a letter sent to you... I sent one today, but it won't get there for a month or so.

Nothing too exciting has happened this week. Just trying to stay sane in the heat and walk a whole lot... haha. I don't know how our bodies are able to do this, but they can walk and walk in the heat. We had a pretty cool experience contacting this week. We have these lists of old investigators that we're cleaning out. We were down in a street contacting at like 3 oclock, when it is so hot, and I had a feeling we should go to a street that is really far away. It was weird. So we decided to go. We had forgotten our water bottles at home and I was so dehydrated. I told Hermana Christensen that the next person to open their door we HAD to ask for a glass of water. We went to find the 5 houses we had on our list. We went to one house and an angry old woman came out and told us to leave. We went to the other 4 and no one was home. I felt pretty annoyed. But as we walked to the next street we passed by the house where the woman yelled at us. A man came out and yelled "Hey! Do you guys want some water? It's hot out here!" We said yes and then had a great conversation with him. His name is Carlos and he talked to elders in 2003. We set up another appointment. We were able to go and teach him yesterday and now he's a new investigator! Pretty great!

Yesterday we had a great Sunday! We called everyone on Saturday and everyone told us that they were either out of town or busy. But we went and passed by before church started for hermana Francisca. And no one was there. We went to the church without anyone.. We felt pretty disappointed. But when we walked in we saw a less-active couple who hasn't been to church in like 4 years sitting on the benches! I was so happy! And then Elsa came in even though she said she couldn't come. And then Eduardo walked even though he was supposed to work today! And Luis came up to me after sacrament meeting and said that he was going to go get a date to get married today! So he can get baptized right after he gets married! And right after the sacrament Hermana Francisca walked in! It turned out to be a great Sunday in El Parque. We felt very blessed. Love you all and hope you have a great week!
