Week 45

What's up! another week's gone by! we had a really good week here in Scott County!

Tuesday we had another lesson with Guillermo and it was a good lesson but a little disappointing! we finally figured out his doubt! so he is working at a Hotel cleaning rooms and he works 7 days because he is saving up to go to college and because of his circumstances he cant get any type of help paying for tuition and what not so he told us his focus right now is work and saving money so he cant or more like wont get Sundays off! So its a bummer but at least now we understand his doubts! on a happy note his mom did make us some really good Mexican food after the lesson! I cant remember what they're called but I'm sure spencer will know! its like a little round tortilla with salsa Verde and like this white cheese on top! it was super good! and for dessert she gave us la arroz con leche, which is like kinda rice pudding but it was super good as well haha we actually came back to their house 2 days later on Thursday and taught his mom and step dad for the first time which was really cool! we watched the restoration video with them and the spirit was super strong! 

We also had a lesson with our 14 year old investigator and we decided to explain the restoration to her one more time, even though she has been taught it many times before. After about 30 minutes of explaining about prophets and the apostasy and joseph smith restoring the gospel,  we asked her is she believed that joseph smith was a prophet, to which she replied "yes, its just that I don't know what a prophet is" hahah so we are going to have to seriously re think the way we teach her, its been a struggle! she is great, super open and willing but really slow haha

Friday night we had a bunch of appointments fall through and so we were just trying some old/potential investigators and we knocked on this guys apartment door and were just standing there in the cold and the dark and we heard from the door behind us this voice of a Hispanic lady talking really fast so me and Torrico both slowly turned to eachother and laughed haha and we turned around and knocked this apartment door and the lady answered and let us in and we saw a guy on her couch and figured out his name was Isias, or Isaiah in English, and we started teaching them both and he was a little stand off-ish but still listened to us and agreed to take and read a book of Mormon and as we were leaving he actually told us he was a pastor at one of the local Baptist churches haha so hopefully he reads the book of Mormon and prays with real intent and gets baptized and brings his whole congregation with him haha one can only hope! 

Also, this Saturday some guy named D. Todd Christofferson from the quorum of the 12 apostles is coming to visit the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission so the whole mission is gathering in Louisville  for 2 hours to listen to him talk so I'm really excited for that!

Hope everything's going great back home! love you guys!

Para siempre Dios esté con vos!

A few weeks ago we went and toured the Toyota factory here in Georgetown (the 2nd biggest in the world and 1st biggest in the US) and it was super sweet! if you people ever come to Kentucky we for sure are going to do this tour! super cool stuff! it was free and the drive you through while their building cars it was super cool!
