Week 71 in Mexico, Week 11 in Del Valle

Hello! We had a great week.  There is a lot going on.  Our investigators are all doing well.  We went and visited Lucy, and she was having a panic attach and wasn't sure if she wanted to be taught.  We told her it would help with her panic attach.  We gave her a lesson, and she felt much better by the time we were done.  Her and her husband and family came to church yesterday.  

Javier is getting excited for his baptism.  His father in law is a seminary teacher, so everything we teach him he is pretty familiar with.  There is an interesting story.  We were on our way to go teach Javier, and we decided to go a different way.  We went down this one street, but it was a dead end.  When we started walking back two kids came running up to us and said that their mom wants to talk to us.  Come to find out this lady had moved in a while ago and has been a member of the church for 2 years.  She wanted to know where the church is.  That was pretty amazing.  

There is a referral we got from Tijuana from this ladies brother who is a member.  We went and visited her, and she is excited to come to church.  

Halloween is interesting here.  The kids dress up, but mostly just paint a skull on their face. When the kids go from house to house they say "We want Halloween" instead of "Trick or Treat."  We were out in one of the poorer parts of our area, and lots of the kids through eggs at us.  A while later we went to get on the bus, but it never came.  We went and found another bus that went close to our house.  We got on that bus. Someone through a rock at the bus.  It was an interesting day.  

Sunday was a great day.  We had 6 or 7 investigators come to church.  Israel finally came.  We were excited.  We showed him around the church.  We were showing him the baptismal font, and there was a dead frog in it.  We felt bad.  He said that's OK I like frogs.  

One last experience.  We had a discussion with Javier and we could tell something was wrong. His father in law asked him what was wrong.  He started crying, and come to find out he knows how important families are and he wants to be with his family for ever.  His parents are not members.  The spirit was really strong.  Who knows maybe with Javier's example they might become a member some day.  

I hope everyone has a great week.  Here is a picture from the day of the dead.
