Happy Mothers Day!

Dear Fam. Okay here is the run down of the week. So here is what happened. I don't really remember.
-We had a cinco de mayo party last week, and it was so fun! got a paisa piƱata and everything! Super fun.
-Our investigator Mayra taught us how to make enchiladas!
-ummm we aren't on bike anymore. So no more worrying mom ;)
-We taught he COOLEST homeless man. well first he was a referral, so all it said was Benjamin, go to the park on magnolia and Tujunga by the Amelia earnheart statue at 4. So we did. And we taught this super cool guy, who is from Honduras and has only been in the US for 10 months. He is homeless yes, but so cool! He even accepted the invitation to be baptized june 1st! The only problem is after that day we lost him. We spent the end of the week knocking on every homeless persons shoulder trying to find him. no luck.
-we found 13 new investigators this week. UH yeah that was crazy unreal. We actually taught this family of four girls on Monday, and they are all super sweet! We'll see what happens there.
-We are learning how to teach simply, and I is so awesome. I am finally coming to really understand the gospel, and know what it really is to be converted.
-We had two exchanges this week. One with Hermana Blacker, and it was super fun. She is just a hoot and I love her. All our plans fell through and it was a terrible day, but she is just so good and down for anything.
-Exchanges with Hermana Simpson did NOT go as well. Hermana Simpson is going into law. Nuff said. She is an excellent missionary, it's just super intimidating to be her leader! AH
-The last thing that was maybe my most favorite part was the opportunity to talk to my sweet family. If there are two things I know to be true, it is that God gave us families because he loves us. Families are so important and I love my family with all my heart. And the second thing is that the gospel blesses families. This gospels changes lives. It makes bad men good and good men better. When we apply the teaching of the gospel in our families we can have so much joy and success in our homes. I testify this gospel is true. I love it with all my heart. I love you all so much, have a wonderful week.
Love Ness
p.s. sometime during this crazy week I hit my 1 year mark! ah crazy!
