What a great week. It has been going really well. This week we Have the Family Tovar that will be getting baptized I try not to say things like that because I have learned that whats written on Dad´s Bow box is true. Don't jump up and down until the guts are on the ground haha ok so maybe that is not the best way to say it but I have learned that it is better to give thanks for the blessings after you´ve received them haha jk. So the funny story of this week happened yesterday. So we were knocking on doors and I knocked on a door and somebody yelled out ¨who?¨ I responded and then they did not say anything more. I was almost leaning again the door when it opened . Out stepped a man of 24 years more or less and pulling out his right hand which was hidden behind his back I saw that he had a black gun. I thought that he was going to kill me because he pulled it out really quickly and towards me. Well my boxing skills paid off and instead of staying still I jumped back five feet and yelled (I am not sure what I said but I am sure it was all really reasonable for what was going on lol). However he almost looked more surprised than me I then quickly realized that what he had pulled out was actually a black TV control hahaha well it was weird to have to explain to Him why I jump back like a chicken haha but in the same moment I am glad I did not try to disarm him because it would have been more difficult to explain it to the police hahaha. Ok so once again this week has gone by super fast. Tuesday we all went to Guadalajaras temple and it was great.
So it sounds like a ton of things are going on there. Oh ya and now for the super experience that we had. Well the Mom in the Tovar family told me that she had some time the other day in the afternoon and decided to read a little bit of the Book of Mormon. After reading for a little bit she prayed again to know if it was true. She then had a dream and started to explain things she felt and that God answered her. However this was not good enough I guess haha because afterwards she told the Lord if he would just bring her son back she would get baptized (this can also be known as tempting God lol haha no but really she asked the Lord to help her with the one things. And just a little bit later her son knocked on the door and asked to live in the house with his family again. hahaha what a great experience. Oh and also we had another experience the other day we were tracking when I passed by a a little phone office. I saw a lady sitting down inside. We do not always contact stores usually just houses. But I felt like I should do it. So I turned around and went back to the window that I sw her through. Once again I thought maybe I should not do it because it would kind of be weird to contact here through a window of some business so I turned around and started walking away when I felt the like I should do it again. So I returned and began talking to her, afterwards we started teaching her and while I was teaching she Said what church are you from. I told her where it was at and she said that she thought we were from tha church because a few months ago she was feeling kind of bad about life and a missionary from that church passed by and prayed with her and she felt better. She then told us that she had felt the same way all day until my companion and I started talking to her. Her name is Lucy. She is reading everything and has already prayed now and received an answer. Ok well I love you all a ton. Tell Lauren RINGO mixed wit Guardemann equals GRINGO hahaha so it looks like we will all be family hahahaha (in case you did get it we are all Gringos in Mexico hahaha.
