Week 13 - Rain in Los Mochis and the Best Shrimp Tacos Ever!

So this week was a little new because we had intercambios with the zone leaders, except this time, I was the one that was staying in our area and elder Lowry was going. I was pretty nervous about it because they only told us the night before. So I had to do the planning and the contacting for two days with one of the new zone leaders. I was mostly worried about the planning because I had never planned before. But it all worked out great. I was with Elder Aleman and he has only been a member for about a year and a half, but he knows so many scriptures. It is kind of amazing. In our lessons, for pretty much everthing he had a scripture he could share and testify of. He is a great missionary, and I am so glad that he is our zone leader. But yeah, I made it through all the planning and we actually had a very successful intercambio. We even found a new investigator. 

It has been raining a lot the past few days, so luckily that means that it has been a lot cooler. But unfortunately because it was raining there were not as many people at church on Sunday. On Saturday night, all of our new investigators told us that they were going to come to church and we had visited 4 less active families who all said that they were going to come to church with us too. We even saved a big row for all of them because we had faith that they were going to show up. But then the time came and not one of them showed up. It was so sad. We hope that it was because of the rain that they didnt come but our goal is for them to come despite the rain. 

I'm not sure what else to talk about, so I am going to tell you about the food. On Sunday, we had the best shrimp tacos of my life. A member in our ward made fryed shrimp and the "salsa" which in Spanish means sauce. (Spanish is very unspecific. For example the drink that is on the table is called agua. It doesnt matter what it is... it could be juice, lemonade or something, but it is always called agua. And if you want just plain water, you have to ask for agua natural.) It was basically pico de gallo with avacados in it and without all the liquid. Oh, it was so good! And she made fry sauce with mayonesa and chipotle. It was all so good!

Sorry, I don't have as much to write. Oh and forgive me for not having any new pictures to send this week. But I am sending pictures of the scripture case that I bought in the CCM. They are pretty sick and I thought that you might like to see them. I love you all so much and I am so grateful for our family. Keep me posted on what everyone is doing. Gracias for all the pictures of everyone.
