So, this week was a little fast and different. Most of our investigators were on vacation or just not home, so we taught a lot of less active members instead. We also went out with the young men and the young women to contact and visit specifically the less active members of their quorums and classes. That was an interesting experience. All the youth without an idea how to contact [others] helping us find potential investigators. They usually went something like: "Hi, were from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These are the Missionaries. They share messages about Christ and God and stuff. Here's a pamphlet that talks about what they share. Oh, and here's different one. And we have one more for you, too (gives them the pamphlets of the Restoration, Plan of Salvation, and Gospel of Jesus Christ). So do you want to listen to them?"(translated from Spanish). It was fun.
Funny story for the day. Most people here don't seem to know what root beer is. In general it isn't sold here. I discovered a few months ago that the 7-Elevens here in Lindavista usually carry A&W root beer. (yay!) Today we were with a couple of other missionaries, and we stopped in to buy some snacks at a 7-11 we were passing, and the cashier carded one of the other missionaries for buying a root beer! Since it says beer I guess they thought it was alcohol or something, because Elder Chavez had to show his ID that he was old enough to drink! We were all laughing about that one.
That's all for now.
