Today was good, a little bit crazy. Recovering a little from yesterday, I'm really hungry! And it's really hot now and forever so we're drinking lots of fluids and applying sunscreen. But this morning we went and found a "new" inactive that we found out about, so we spent some time with him, and then headed to Hna Aide for lunch! She's so awesome. Hna Cruz and I love her laugh. She's had many surgeries lately for various problems, but she still comes to Church every Sunday. And she makes good food. And tells us all sorts of stories.

Then we went and found some more people to teach. During the lesson, the family understood and participated and everything, and then at the end we discovered that they actually didn't get anything. So that was a little discouraging. But we'll try again with them and see what happens. We always believe in second chances! And thirds and fourths and fifths... until we all get the joke and can continue progressing. It's just interesting to see the different points people are in in their progression. And it's all good! We just need to help people wherever they are.

And we did another visit with this one really sweet lady, very Catholic, but is going through some rough times in her family. We were able to talk about "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" click: Family Proclamation and give her some comfort and let her know that she is doing the right things and will be blessed for that. Good lady.
Oh! Good news that's totally random! We finally switched out our toilet seat! Yay! It's cuz when I got here to
El Dorado, the plastic seat part was
cracking, as it's thin plastic and kinda old. So about a month ago it finally
broke all the way through, so there was this split in the seat that made
everything uncomfortable. So we put some tape around it, but it was looking
really sad at that point. So we talked to some people, and we got ourselves a
beautiful, brand-new toilet seat! And I figured out how to install it myself.
So now I can proudly say that I have toilet seat changing skills, Dad will be
proud. I love what you learn to do on missions!
And I gotta prepare a talk about missionary work for tomorrow. Yay for talks!
