Week 35 in Mexico, Week 5 in Zihuatanejo

Hi everyone!  This week has been pretty interesting.  I got to try some new food.  A member gave us wild boar to eat one day, and a different member gave us crickets a different day.  They don´t taste too bad, boar was like eating pig.  Eating crickets was interesting because they fry them, but first they give them cheese to eat so they have a special taste.  It was interesting.  We also met some new people.  Karla wasn´t able to be baptized this week for some complications with her family, but we were able to talk to her, and she still wants to be baptized, she just wants to clear some stuff up first.  We are going to try and get her ready for this week or the next.  Also we had a great experience finding a new family to teach.  We were looking for a reference that a sister had given us, and we found her.  The sister told us that this person had been recieving the lessons, but when we found her, she told us that she had never been taught by a missionary, but maybe it was her neighboor who had been listening.  We asked her neighboor, and we explained that we were there to teach a message and they let us in.  We started teaching and the mother started to cry because we had got there right after a fight that she had with her daughter, and prayed for help.  That was when we got there, right after she prayed.  We started to teach them, and they were very receptive.  Actually tonight we are going to have family home evening in the house of a member with them.  Hopefully everything keeps going good with them.  Not much else happened during the rest of the week.  For the most part it was just walking and trying to find more people to teach.  But overall it has been a pretty good week.
