Talking Loudly. . . a method of teaching?

This week went by super duper fast so I am jsut going to share some highlights with you.

This is Hno. Sebastian and his Family who speak Qeqchi 
Waterfight Activity this morning, P-day.

This week Hna. Gomez and I walked to one of the barrios farthest away in our area called the Granja. Most of our area is pretty cityish but the Granja is all just trees and jungle and tin roofs and dirt floors. It's about a 45 minute walk from our house there but since its been cooling down a bit and we have hardly worked there we made the journey. We were knocking doors and we found this little old couple. I cannot describe how hilarious they were. The husband was this short old Guatemalan with a t-shirt with corn on it, and he was basically deaf, His wife was this tall old lady and had something wrong with her mouth that made it difficult for her to speak. Both of them couldn't really understand my accent but we had a go at it anyways. We said a prayer and started to explain who we were, 'We are representatives of Jesus Christ and he sent us here to share a message with you.' The Hermano just stares at us, 'huh'
'We are representatives of Jesus Christ!'
'oh yes... yes... that's nice.'
I seriously could not contain myself, I was dying laughing. The whole lesson was basically like that us just talking as loud as permit until they understood a little......

Also this week we went to go and share with Hno Sebastian and Candelaria (The Family of Q'eqchi.) They are so stinkin' cute! They are praying to know if they should be baptized on the 18th of this month. When we were in their house they other day Hno. Sebastian taught us some things in Q'eqchi... like how are you? and what's your name (aka I'm basically fluent in the language now...) but is was so fun. I'm so grateful we can share with them.

I love you all a lot! Don't forget to read your book of Mormon this week cuz it's the best!

Dont worry about my Dangue. That's why I didn't tell you guys sooner cuz it really wasn't that big of a deal. Just a few days of lost work haha.  (Lex did not tell us, but she did tell her sister that it was boring being int he hospital.)
