September 28 letter

Hey everyone. Another week has flown by. 

We´re doing well here in Zacatlan de los manzanas [of the apples]. I don´t know why it´s called that, I haven't even seen one apple tree! But one of the things that I do love is that the sweet bread that they have here is super cheap. 2 pesos. I might gain some weight here for that. We've had a good week. We had a few days of a lot of walking around but overall it was good. We've found even more of the investigators that we hadn't been able to find. We also found two new investigators. On Wednesday we found the two new ones and they´re good people. The only problem is that the husband talks way too much. We couldn't control the lesson very well and we had also brought a member that likes to talk. We could barely squeeze in a word between those two haha. But they have a lot of potential, he´s named Carlos and he seems to have a lot of interest and is ready to study what we give him.

Thursday we taught a few lessons to members and taught a mission prep class to a member who's preparing to go on a mission. Friday we made contact with another investigator that also talks a lot, but we managed the lesson a lot better. We also had a really good lesson with another investigator and her less active boyfriend. That was a really good day. Saturday we taught some recient converts and passed by with Karen and Edwardo (the investigator and her boyfriend). We just read a part of 2 Nephi 32 with them but the spirit was really strong and Karen had a bunch of really good questions about baptism. The best part was that on Sunday Karen and Edwardo went to church! It was great! Now the only thing we have to do is get them married and help them quit smoking... We´re really excited for her though. Its always a big obstacle to get investigators to church.

OK, now for a funny story. It will make more sense if you speak Spanish, but we were talking with some people in the street about the church the other day, and one of the ladies asked us why we both have the name Elder. So in Spanish there´s a word  that means that two people have the same name, which is tocayos (or however you spell it). However I got my words mixed up and said tlacoyos, which is a a type of Mexican food. So I basically said to this person "Yup, we´re quesadillas!" Tlacoyos aren't quesadillas but you get my point haha. It was pretty funny, we all had to laugh it out.

Well, I hope you all have a good week! Enjoy the first days of October!

-Elder Hartvigsen
