1 month

So here is the deal, I super have to go to the bathroom, but I am in the middle of this letter! Ah it's the worst ever! anyways, let me tell you about my week.

last p-day we got to go to the universal studios city walk!! Like all the little shops and the restaurants and stuff they have outside of universal! It was super fun. But oh my goodness it was different! I felt so worldly! They were playing music and I was like oh my goodness I don't know some of these songs! but i still knew most of them, I haven't been out of the world too long! It reminded me a lot of our family trip there a couple of years ago! I miss you all a lot. we passed things like the hard rock and bubba gump where we ate. All that super fun stuff! AH don't worry we will for sure have to go when you come to pick me up:) also, here is the funny thing. On the way home from universal we got lost (Like usual) hopefully we didn't accidentally go out of the mission again like the naughty missionaries that we are! But we were definitely lost. Yeah I'm pretty sure we were somehwere near Justin Beibers house, so if you see any tabloids with some crazy missionaries with Justin, yeah we're pretty much famous! haha just kidding. But back to missions!

This week has been kind of the same missionary stuff, visiting people, going by less active members, going finding, and stuff like that. But it's been kind of sad! A lot of our appointments have fallen through. We only taught two lessons this week (well to investigators)  we teach a lot of lessons to less actives, and recent converts. But here is what we spent a lot of time doing this week. So one of the elders in our zone likes to write plays. Like theater plays. So he wrote this play, about the restoration. In spanish. with like 20 different parts. and it's like 35 pages. And guess who were the stars of that play? yeah that's right the missionaries! haha guess what I was?! an atheist librarian! and also spirit #2. so we spent like all of our language studies all week learning this play, and then I friday we spent most of the day rehearsing it. we performed it on saturday and it was basically the best thing in the whole world! I totally killed my atheist librarian part. (don't worry I sent a picture). But the play actually went really good. For the lack of planning, and the fact that all we had to work with was 18 missionaries and a church, I think it went pretty good! I wouldn't be suprised if they took it to broadway. I can see it now The Restoration the Musical! (only available in spanish). Basically, I am going to be famous! I knew they had great things in store for me here in the valley! haha but because we are working on latina time, the play that was supposed to start at 7 started at 8:30, and so we didn't get home until 10:30 when we were supposed to be sleeping!! ah we are naughty missionaries! First we get lost at universal, then we stay out all night, and then! okay you're going to die with this one, this one was really naughty. So they want us to take members with us to lessons, so yesterday we asked a member if we could take her grandaughter with us. Her name is Adrianna. She is 11. And it was TOTALLY against the rules. So basically, we went proselyting with a small child and we are the naughtiest missionaries ever!!! Ah! We try so hard to be good, but we just do the dumbest naughty things on accident! But it's okay heavenly father still loves us, and he gave us great miracles! Let me tell you about them.

So I told you we only had two lessons with investigators right? well it's the truth. But we had one with Armando, and it was amazing!! So Armando has been investigating the church for 2 years yeah? and he won't commit to baptism. If you ask me, it's because he is waiting for his wife. So i've been working on her. Me and her are going to have a pedicure party one day, but that is beside the point. So for Armando we prepared this killer lesson about the atonement. and it was obvious that satan didn't want us to give it, because there were tons of distractions, and all that. But we had our lesson and it was killer. So we invited him to our play and to church like we always do. But he didn't come to the play because it was his grandsons birthday, and then we didn't see him at church! and he always comes to church. So I was devastated!! but then in Sacrament meeting (because we have sacrament last) he was there. And do you wanna know who came in halfway through sacrament meeting?!?! HIS WIFE!! Victoria!! Yeah she came to church isn't that the best news you ever heard?! I think that if we can get her, we can get both of them! it's so exciting! also, we had another investigator come to church. His name is Nicolas, and I am pretty sure he is handicap, so I don't know how much he is receiving. But it was so cute we went to get him for church and he was totally ready with his Book of Mormon and pamphlet. He was shaking everyones hands, and he was wearing a basketball jersey! ha I love him! I think you could probaly compare him with that boy from Radio... the handicapped one. Well so anyways, I am running out of time because this man sitting next to me started talking to me about the devil stealing his stuff and homeless people. But he was nice. His name is richard.

Okay last thing. We got to go out finding with the sister training leaders on saturday afternoon. I went with Hermana Arguello. And people were SO MEAN TO US!! here is the deal. There are a ton of Jehovas Witnesses around here, and sometimes people think we're JW's. So they hide from us. It's the saddest. So we would knock on peoples doors, and we knew they were home, and they would hide from us. People avoided us like the plague, and it was the saddest! Well the other problem was too, that most of them were white. And everyone knows white people just aren't nice. So moral of the story, be nice to people. And I am not a JW!! Well, technically am, JW like janessa watts, but no! I'm a mormon!! anyways, this week was super great. I hope you are all doing well and are seeing miracles in your life. And also, I hope you are sharing the gospel with everyone you come in contact with. Because they need it. I hope you know that I pray for you everyday! Love you all so so much! Don't miss me too much, and be good!
