Hey whats up guys!! Happy Easter to you!! They dont really celebrate Easter here but they have whats called La Semana Santa which is The Holy Week in English. Its usually the hottest week of the year cause its like mid summer but I think the heats gonna hit us this week. It rained like the whole first part of La Semana Santa and was pretty nice weather up til Sunday when it got nice and Hot! But ya during La Semana Santa they eat dried fish soup which attracts a ton of flies and also things covered in Honey like pumpkin and mangos. We ate dried fish soup like every day. Its pretty good stuff. The Catholic Church really sticks out during this week with all their activities and stuff. And instead of Easter its first off Crucifixtion Friday, Saturday of Glory, and Resurrection Sunday. Soo ya little different world over here as usual. On Sunday I had kind of forgotten that it was even Easter until our California Investigator Tyron met us on the street as we were going to church and said Happy Easter Guys! Then it struck us like ooh ya its Easter! haha but ya no Easter Bunnies or Easter Hunts or Candy and Eggs. I tried explaining all that stuff to some families here and they all thought that we were crazy. Cool stuff.
Soo honestly this week I forgot my agenda and my mind is going blank on what we did and such. But it was a pretty descent week and we received a legit referral of a couple whos married and interested! Were very excited about them and also about this kid named Carlos whos Mom is a member and we contacted them and found that out out of the Blue and she wants him to get baptized!! hes 12 and he loved the church this week and is stoked to be baptized! Miracles of Contacting right there. Also we were able to progress with a lot of our investigators! We have a date with Tyron for the 9th of April so please pray for him that he can leave the bad stuff behind. Hes trying soo hard and doing soo good! Just needs a little more love.
