This week was super cool. We were not able to teach a lot of our investigators this week, but we did find some cool new investigators to teach.
We contacted a house one day and this lady came out and told us that she was just there helping out her daughter, but that she lives nearby. Her name is Maria. She invited us over to her home, and when we arrived we realized she is the bishop's neighbor.

During our visit with Maria, her daughter Tamara participated in the lesson. They were really receptive and attended church on Sunday, along with Tamara's boyfriend Gonzalo and their son. Tamara and Gonzalo remind me of Victoria and Mauricio. The bishop's grandchildren (who are also his neighbors and served missions) helped out a lot, and Tamara and Gonzalo loved it. I called Tamara last night and she told me she is stoked to come back next week.

The bishop was so happy to see his neighbors at church. It was pretty funny. He is going to give us a reference for another neighbor on that street. I wonder how long it will be before we get a colony of Mormons on the bishop's street.
The church attendance has been soaring lately, too. The average for August was like 60 people and I think the average for this month and the last month will be like 85. We almost hit 100 a few weeks ago, and we almost hit it again last week.
We have a bunch of families we are teaching. We taught the Restoration yesterday to Sara, Armando, and their adorable 9-year old daughter Nicole, and it was awesome. They were glued the whole time and they are attending church.
Thanks for all the love, and I want to give a shoutout to my dad who is afraid that I'm trunky because BYU starts four days after I get home.
Love you guys!
