I survived the earthquake!

Hola familia!

For those of you who were wondering, I survived the earthquake! It was sweet, and it didn't do too much damage in my area. Only a couple of power lines tipped over! But everything is very humble here, so I'm not surprised that they fell over. It sounds like everyone is doing pretty good. And how about them Aggies! Holy cow, Chuckie is crazy!

Well I gave my first talk in spanish yesterday! It was kind of crazy. The bishop came up to me and was telling me that the reason that there are inactive members is because they don't have a strong testimony, and It's my job to encourage them to gain one! I think I did pretty good, and it was sweet giving the talk in spanish!

The funniest thing ever happened yesterday! so we were walking back from Almuerzo and this family stopped and wanted to talk to me. Haha, it was sketchy, but he was like man your white, why are you in Guatemala? I told him that I was preaching the gospel and he was like man I lived in South Carolina. Listen man I love to smoke weed. I love to drink. If you need anything, let me know man. I've got money. I've got friends, man where ya goin? I can give you and your friend a ride! I was like we are just walking, but thanks anyway. He was like alright, but man I gotta tell you, if you need anything I got you! Haha, so funny, except for that every other word was a swear word.

It was so great this week. I got to go on divisions with Elder Farley! He's from Georgia and we are way good friends. Not only did we speak english and order pizza, but I learned so much from him. I learned how to teach the people and not teach lessons. It was cool, we went to this family of investigators. The mom is inactive and Elder Zombrano and I have gone there every night, but this night the dad came out. He said he was sorry that he didn't have much time. But I felt prompted to ask him if we could say a prayer before we left. Right as I said that, it started raining, so the dad said okay. He told us to come by his house so we wouldn't get wet, but after the prayer, for some reason he decided to let us in. Elder Farley and I taught him, his wife, and his daughter a very powerful lesson. This sunday his wife and daughter came to church, and his daughter who is 17 felt the spirit and started crying. She said she wanted to be baptized! It was great! We have a lot of baptisms, 5 this Saturday and 3 the next! Well, everything keeps getting better! So, ya les amo! Tortilla count 77.
