I like being a missionary.
Dionisio and his family printed out 11 names for the temple yesterday. :-)
We were teaching a reference we received from the Bishop's wife. This new hermana had a lot of concerns about raising her family and said something I really liked. She said, "Everybody asks 'What kind of a world are we leaving to our children? but I think we should ask 'What kind of children are we leaving to the world'?" Amen.

This is the Familia Gutierrez from Terranova, the family that lived in front of us. They were just cool parents. They instilled artistic creativity in their kids. :) (El Hermano is a professional musician)-- Carlos, Monse, Laura, Brenda, ?, Alom, Khallel (he is a cousin), Lia, Hermana Oaxaca.
SuperTortas with Hermana Oaxaca! I ate all that and was still hungry.
You can't see it in the picture, but Hermana Oaxaca fell out of her hamaca (hammock) and hurt her shoulder and has had a sling for three weeks. She is a fighter. Si nada mas (if nothing else), it is a good conversation starter!
Hermana Oaxaca is a conversation starter. :-)
I will probably write on Tuesday next week for temple trip number two! I FOUND A FAMILY NAME!
We had some real life-changing lessons with menos-activos this week. None of them came to church, but the seeds of faith are growing.
