In Friday, it rained the last couple hours we were out, and because there aren't drains in the streets here, the streets turn into rivers. Walking back to the house, my companion and I were completely soaked, even though we both had umbrellas. The cars driving in the streets were spraying us everytime they passed by. However, my companion and I were singing "Called to Serve" and it turned into something fun, even though we were really wet. My planner got drenched, and to dry it out I had to take out the plastic spiral thing and lay out the pages all over the house. I'm grateful for the rain though, because it really cooled things off.
The wife of the ward mission leader, Hermana Rosalva, made us some food during our meeting with her husband. She made tortillas, and they are the best tortillas I have ever eaten. I could eat a plate full of just these tortillas. I actually asked her to teach me how to make these tortillas. I'm really grateful for her and her husband. Even before he was ward mission leader, he was always willing to help us out. The members here are really great. I'm so grateful I'm in Loma Linda!
Yesterday was the rededication of the temple in Mexico City, and it was fantastic! Elder Holland and President Eyring were there. Their talks were puro poder (pure power it sounds weird in English, but it makes sense in Spanish) Anyway, it was cool to see how much I was understanding when the translator was talking. Also I felt the Spirit super strong. It made me miss the temple, but I can go as much as I want when I go home. In saturday, we watched a broadcast of the cultural celebration. During the broadcast, it talked about the growth of the church here in Mexico, and I almost cried about 5 times because I felt how important the people here are to Heavenly Father. I'm actually tearing up just remembering it. He really loves the people here, and He really wants them to know Him and the way to get back to Him. It amazes me how much Heavenly Father is in the details of our lives, how many tender mercies He gives us. I know that He loves us individually, and He knows us personally. I hope all of you have a great week!
