The Jesus Card We Left Had a Big Impact

Alright well this week was honestly just full of awesome stories and experiences!  Most of them Spiritual and really cool!!  So we were in a trio until Thursday but the missionary has back problems so we kind of were really limited on what we could do! 

Tuesday we went to Polanco in the morning because we had to take this Elder to get his green card renewed so then we went to the area.
Killing time at a museum in Palanco.  Douglas mentioned in a previous email that when they go to Polanco they have to drop visas off and then return to pick them up a few hours later.  It's a 90 minute metro ride each way so they stay in town rather than travel back and forth.  This is not the first time he has sent home pictures of posing with the art!

We went to the food and couldn't really do much after that because he was in a lot of pain.  So we said okay we are just going to pass by with two people then we will go home.  So we went to see Julio and he wasn't there so we just left a little note on his door on the back of a Jesus card.  Then we went with family Alva for a little bit and that was a good productive day.  

Wednesday we had to go back to Polanco at the end of the day and so we didn't do any visits until 7 when we went with Julio.  Well turns out the Jesus card we left had a big impact.  He told us that he was getting home and had decided that he wanted to kill himself and so he was kind of planning it all out since he was just having tons of problems with his work, he lost his job again, his wife, almost got divorced and just everything.  Well he gets home and sees the Jesus card and he said he just started crying and he felt the love Christ has for him and also how much we care for him.  It was really really cool and he is progressing like a champ right now!  He decided to open his own panaderia (bread place) and so he is excited so he can be closed on Sunday and all that stuff!  All in all it went well!

Thursday we sent off Parkinson (the Elder with back problems) so everything was supposed to be normal right?!  Wrong haha we went to Migracion again with lots of missionaries and then got pizza in the offices and we watched another sick missionary for a little while and then we did weekly planning to hurry and finish in a good way so that was our Thursday!

Friday This was probably our coolest day!  We went to the food and everything went pretty normal for the most part we had fun and we worked pretty hard!  We went with a new less active that we are working on activating!  It is going really well!  Well he is awesome!  He just got into a job that was really hard on him and he wasn't able to keep going to church!  He decided that he wanted to come back and since then he has been awesome!!  He got back from his mission like three years ago! He was a zone leader for over a year and so we decided to take him out with us!  It was an awesome idea!  He killed it and was able to kill it with Julio!  Then after all of that he took us out for ribs!  Now here comes the funny story of the week...he is a federal police man so he kind of just does what he wants.  Well we were talking about air soft guns and how I want one to shoot the cats that get in our house, well he goes I have one you can have it! Well I was super excited so I am like sweeeeet!  He is like yeah I will go grab it right now!  So he goes to his house and gets it then comes in to ribs and he puts it on the table and everyone was looking like oh crap what is happening!  I will never forget the look on those drunk girls faces.  It was so funny. 

Saturday we had a good day too.  We went and started contacting less actives to be able to find some more news through that and so we only found one family but he said yeah that is fine come on Wednesday!  So we are going to go next week but at church we told the bishop about the family that we found and he is like wow he said you guys could go in?  That is crazy!!  They like hate the church so good for you guys!  We are excited to see what we can get out of it and find lots of more people doing this new method we learned!!  

That is about it for this week!! I love you! Have a great week!!
