Day of the Dead

November 3, 2014

I see dead people..............

HA HA, not really, but the last few days here it has been super crazy because the people here do not celebrate Halloween but the first two days of November they celebrate what is called Dia de Los Muertos! I can say it was super interesting to see that! All the kids dressed up and going door to door and they went to the different businesses. Here is also a fun fact, here in my zone is a place called Mixquic and they have a huge party for these types of events! A member told us that one year Tim Burton came down to that party and that is where he got his inspiration for a lot of his movies! This last week was really good! we got a lot of work done! There is some sad news however....... our investigator angel didn't get baptized this last week because they still need to take away dead skin on his foot :/  all is still well because we are going to visit him and make sure that he is ready as soon as possible! but over all it was a good week! I just can't believe that we are now into November now! it is super crazy! 

November first and second are observed holidays here which are called Di de Los Muertos or the day of the dead!! It was actually cool to see it this year. in my area last year nothing much happened during this time. As we were walking we found someone who invited us to do one of the traditional face paints! it was kind of cool! I think its something I want to come back and see after the mission! All the kids dressed up and trick or treated at the different businesses and every one was going crazy! I think the worst part of the weekend was that one of our neighbors had a party right below us and they wee SUPER drunk..... they were yelling and chanting all night! They finally stopped around 4:30 in the morning!!! 

Yesterday we took a taxi to take our injured investigator  to church. When we got to his house he was not there..... so we went to the church and they were not there either... so we called them and his wife told us that he had an appointment  to take off more dead skin and so it was more than likly that he will not be baptized for right now. But we told her No se preocupe Hna. becaue we will continue to come by and visit him and make sur that he is SUPER ready! She was pretty excited about that! Because This guy has nothing else to do but sit around he has been reading the Book of Mormon and now is in Alma! He has told us that he knows that this book is scripture from God! it was so cool to hear that!

Other than that the week was good! We did a lot more walking! Sorry that this letter is not as long it was just a lot of teaching and walking! But over all it was fun! 

May God bless you all in this day and this week! I hope you all have a good sucessful week! I love you all!

Con mucho Cariño,
