Hola hola! 

This week we have contacted a lot and set a lot of appointments to come back, so hopefully when I email next week I will have a lot more to say about all our new investigators! One person we contacted is a Jehovas Witness and she accepted a folleto and a date to come back. My companion said thats a first time for her in her mission, so we will see how that goes!

Tuesday was my compañera´s birthday so in the morning we made her breakfast and gave her little gifts and stuff ,so that was fun. In the night we had a little mini party for her, which basically just meant that we ate a bunch of food. Our table consisted of fried bread (called sopapillas, similar to scones), flan, honey, caramel, a can of sweetened condensed milk, salt, oil, butter, and chips. We all took a moment to acknowledge that this is why we are all going to gain 27 lbs on the mission! haha. 

Friday night we had a home evening with the branch in the chapel and it went super well. We went to pick up an investigator named Gabriela to go to the activity with us, but when we got to her house her mom said ´´sorry she can´t go she is busy... but is it ok if I go with you guys instead?´´ Um, YES! So she came to the activity with us, which was my first time having an investigator at an activity. We have a date set to visit her again and are hoping to get her to come to church with us this next week. 

Today for P Day we had an activity as a zone and we took a bus out to an area called puente negro (a area out by the mountains by a river) and had a BBQ. It was a blast, and don´t worry mom, I actually took a lot of pictures for a change and will send them on Wednesday. 

So there is this thing that I hate. A lot of the time when we are talking to people they say something that is super doctrinally incorrect, and afterwords they look at us and say ´´or no?´´ and the answer is ´´NO!´´ but it's awkward to straight up tell peole to their face that their beliefs are wrong. But also we can´t exactly agree with them, so then we just end up in this awkward situation, and I look at my companion and she changes the subject. Haha this happens a LOT. 

Anyways love you all have a fantastic week!
