The Garden of Elder Burnham 06/20/16

I feel like this was a pretty normal week in the mission.  (I feel like I have not had one of those in a long time haha).  On Friday we had interchanges.  My district leader, Elder Small, came to my area.  That was kind of fun because I am still pretty new to the area, but we ended up not getting lost haha.  We had Walter´s baptism interview even though we decided to postpone the baptism for the next Saturday because there was this huge multi-stake activity that caused some scheduling conflicts.  But next Saturday Walter will get baptized.

We went back with this guy we found last week, Mario.  He is super awesome.  He told us that almost 20 years ago he made a promise with God that he would stop drinking and has never done so since.  He really likes our message and wants to come to church this week.  He already accepted a baptism date and is progressing really fast.  We left him one chapter to read in the Book of Mormon and he had read the three chapters after that one!  Super cool!  

We have a balcony with some potted plants that we kind of take care of for the land lady.  We have some pots that just had some dirt in them and so she gave us some seeds to plant some more plants.  So basically we have a garden that I am investing random spare time into. haha Hopefully the tomatoes, onions, and greens peas I planted do well! 

We started church on Sunday with no investigators and ended with two!  One of them was a friend of a member that she invited, but she doesn't live in our area.  But the place that she lives does not have missionaries.  So she is going to come here on he weekends so we can teach her here!  We invited some less actives to church and they showed up!  Their mom who is not a member and didn´t seemed too interested, unexpectedly showed up to church about halfway through the sacrament meeting, so that was really cool!

When it is not raining, it's really hot, so I kind of hope for rain even if we have to walk around in it haha!

Have a great week!
