To Be a Part of This Work

This week is a real good week. We have found another great family. They are from Hawaii, so that is cool. Polynesians are the best.

It was really cool how we found them. We got a referral from the zone leaders. Who knows where they got it, but it was to go visit. The family lives about 20 minutes away from our main area, so we got a team up and drove out there. We went by their house once and nobody was there. We went to go visit some more people, and then, came back to see if the family was there. They were. We ended up talking with them and teaching a short lesson. It was great to see how the Lord works.

We have also got the whole support of the ward in finding all these families who are interested in the church. It is so cool to see and even better to be a part of this work. 

One of the interesting things about being with a Mexican companion during Cinco de Mayo is to understand the holiday better. It is funny that all of us Americans think the holiday is so big and the Mexicans don’t even remember it. They don’t even have that holiday in Mexico. It is like Memorial Day or President’s Day, not really big at all. So that is kinda funny.
