Frying pans.......who knew, right?
So this week has been great! We've started to coordinate a lot more with our sister missionaries which has really helped us out! We went and played Softball with the Delvalle family and that was awesome! Afterwards the oldest daughter had a game so we stayed to cheer them on. We were definitely the loudest, hands down no contest.
On Sunday we had a guy and a girl show up whom we had never seen before but the woman was a member who had brought her nonmember friend. He kept telling everybody he met "I'm Catholic but I'm still looking for the truth" so that was great. In Gospel Principles it was Elder Corpus and I, our sisters, the Gospel Principles teachers and the guy and girl. So it basically turned into an introduction to the Book of Mormon coupled with Moroni's promise at the end. He loved it! I'm so grateful for Gospel Principles teachers who don't mind when we hijack their class. We're going over this week to have dinner with them and teach them the Restoration.
We started a Power of Everyday Missionaries class in our ward and Harry is co-teaching! Talk about a good calling for a new member, right? His friend Emma who is still an investigator actually read the whole book and asked to be apart of the class, we weren't about to say no to her. Which is odd since she isn't entirely interested in being baptized as of right now but she wants to be a missionary so who knows how that makes sense in her head but whatever helps her progress. We're going to meet with her tonight and teach her about prophets.
This is a picture of the food at a Brazilian barbecue we went to yesterday. It was amazing! They had three aluminum trays filled with giant steaks sausage and chicken. We took this picture near the end but for like an hour the grill was constantly filled with meat. When it was done cooking they threw it on the cutting board sliced it up and we just ate it from there. It was ridiculously good!
Our mission President was teaching us about how we can use prayer to generate revelation and he was talking about how cultural prayers are often just vain repetition. It was pretty funny though he was talking about how everyone at our church prays that everyone will get home safely at which point he says "now, I'm not trying to be rude but with the amount of times people pray for safety you'd think the church was surrounded by shark infested waters!" we've really been trying to pray sincerely as a companionship and it has honestly been helping! It's not easy to retrain yourself on some of things commonly said but it's worth it.
Anyways I've gotta be heading out. We're walking the freedom trail today so have a great day!
