Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ 6/20/16 "Falling in Love..."

Ok so this area rocks!!!! I love this place so much!!!!The first night we got here Elder Butterfield and Elder Nolasco helped us clean the house a bit, and we found some huge pants from another elder that had served here and Elder Butterfield and I both fit in this pair and then leaned as far as we could to try and rip them and it seriously took all of our effort! On Tuesday morning we got lost trying to get to the stake center but yeah my district is awesome and we are almost always with our zone leaders:) We taught a lesson to a lady named Bianca and she is so amazing.She is 21 and married to a less active and they have the cutest lil four year old daughter ever. She wants to get baptized and reads, prays, and goes to church every week. Until her i dont think i have ever had a testimony that the people are prepared to accept the gospel. It was so easy.
I did two baptismal interviews this week for two kids and once again it feels very interesting to have the mantle to be able to do that. We taught a lady named Carmen who is an active member and she is seriously the most wonderful person ever. She sewed my backpack with hammock stitching and walked with us to english class. She is practically a mom to the missionaries and it is so sad she moves next month:( 
Yes we do have an HEFY group here and it was very cool to be able to have the opportunity to translate the Stake presidents talk at the youth fireside...The one word i didnt know was basket... whoops. This group has a rm named Trevor and he served spanish speaking in Arizona and he is so cool! He is studying at BYU and wants to be an orthopedic surgeon... hahah what a coincidence;) 
We played soccer today and did some service with the HEFY group at a kindergarten here and that was also a very neat experience.
Cool things this week- got asked if im from argentina, told i have 22 months in the mission, ate with Hermano paco who swears in english, and heard the phrase shut the front door from one of the members who speaks a lot of englishXD
Happy Father´s Day Dad!!
Love you all
