August 11, 2014 Aeropuerto

What a crazy week this week! Man, I cant get over all the stuff that has happened.... 
First off, we met with a member named Jorge Ramirez... turns out that he studied to be a lawyer in the US and lived about 5 minutes from our house! Crazy right! He lived right next to Harmons where the church is there on the corner almost... He explained that he loved it there, but knew that god had a better plan for him here. He is the Sunday School President in the ward now and works as a full time masoos.... (not sure how to spell that one...) But he is a really cool guy. Likes to talk a lot, but is as solid as a rock as far as the gospel goes. Hes a big inspiration to me as a missionary. He is always looking for ways to help someone else in their needs and has always been very nice to us missionaries. 
We were invited to Hermana Angie's 3 year old birthday party yesterday night (the youngest sister of Maria Jose.) It was really awkward for us as missionaries walking into a house full of catholic people but we had fun watching this young girl whack the pinata and scurry around with her friends for the candy. We got invited so we couldnt turn it down. Their family has always been so great to us and I couldnt refuse the invitation. I love them and their family so much. I cant wait to be able to baptize her sisters... they just need permission from the parents. Pray for em!
Ajenor, Daniel, and Karen are still going strong... but not one of them attended church this last week... TRISTE! Ugh its really frustrating when you get the text saying, "yeah, we slept in instead..." It kills me because I was always an early riser and never had problems planning ahead of time if I had previously made an appointment, but its whatever. We are still planning for the baptism of Ajenor on the 21st. Karen for the 30th and Daniel on the 13th we are thinkin about that one still... not sure whats going to happen with him. 
Hanging with Sergio

A good friend of ours, Sergio took us out to Applebees on wednesday morning because he "was lonely" and wanted  friend to go with him. Of course he calls up to missionaries =) We had a blast being able to chow down on some pancakes  =) I had a good time, and I was super stuffed afterwards. I love that guy =) 
Crab caught in a members home . . . dinner?

Fuzzy grape fruit, take the fuzz off before you eat, expensive but good.

Well, thats it for this week! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
Kia Kaha!
