First week on a bike [1/11/2017 email]

Hola hola!

This past week we were finally able to get bicycles and now we get to all of our lessons super fast and its amazing. 

Also this week, we had a capilla abierta (open chapel, like an open house for the church) in our ward and it was my first time doing it but they have a bunch of them here. What they do is they have all the members set up like a table explaining their certain, umm, organization like relief society and quorem de elders and whatnot and we invite everyone and first they start off listening to us, the missionaries, explain a bit about the restoration and then they can go to each of the different rooms in the chapel and listen to the members explain what they do and share their testimonies and stuff and it is super cool. And a bunch of missionaries from the zone come to help but it was super awkward because our chapel is in a random little street that not a lot of people use and usually we would contact in the street and invite everyone in who passed by but nobody passes by ever, so we were really counting on the members to bring people and only like, 4 families, brought people. BUT the people that they brought were like, super awesome and we met a dad who came with his two daughters and he is less active but his wife and daughters aren't members, and at the end of the night he told us that he had felt the spirit super strongly and we were able to look up his baptismal record and get his address and we are hopefully going to teach him this week. 

Also, umm, lets see, umm, teaching people and whatnot, we are kind of struggling to have investigators right now but that just means that I am getting really good at contacting people in the street and that we are really working with less actives and whatnot.

But umm here is a picture of me on my bike that I took while I was riding my bike on a super uneven dirt road and I almost crashed trying to take this picture but I definitely didn't. Okay chiste this computer is stupid and isn't reading my memory card so I don't know if Ill send pictures this week but anyways that is about it.

Hope you all have a great week!
