We did some pretty cool stuff this week. we gathered our whole district in our area and then we went to a neighborhood in our area and sang two songs at three houses. It was great. It brought the spirit to have 6 missionaries our spirit and ward mission leader singing accompanied by a flute and a violin. One lady was almost over come and almost cried. It was a great way to build relations with the people. Another great people stopped and watched us so I think it will help us a lot in the future. The last house we stopped at feed us. We sat down at the table and the sister began bringing use food. And she just didn't stopped. There were six of us and we could barely finish off the food. In the end we were both spiritually and physically filled. It was great night.
I haven't told you a ton about El Salvador, so I will add a bit here. The people here love Fast and Furious. When Paul Walker died, they were devastated. Who is Paul Walker you ask? I didn't know either, but I now I know he was a person in Fast and Furious.
There is no such thing as space between buildings. Everything is packed together. The trash can is the street. I would like you to take a moment to think about how grateful you are to have clean streets with places to cross safely. And also, speed limits and road laws are pretty cool. I guess they are just trying to drive like the people in Fast and Furious!
It is really tropical here. It is like 85 degrees here and humid. There are tropical plants and tons of ants!
I want to invite you all to read 2 Nephi 2 and think about the plan of Salvation that our Father in Heaven has for us. Central to this plan is Jesus Christ. He was chosen before this life, when we lived with our Father in Heaven as Spirits, to suffer for our sins and make it possible for the imperfect people that we are, to return to live with God again. We can only accomplish this through faith, repentance, baptism and by enduring to the end.
I love you all!
P.S. Send me any questions you have for me! Peace out, going bowling :)
