We’re teaching this one couple who are sooooo great. After the first time we taught them Hermana Cladera and I were pretty sure they thought we were from the Catholic church or Evanglists. So, yesterday when we taught them we tried to emphasize the differences. It was so awesome because I extended the compromiso to pray and ask God if Jose Smith is really a profeta of God and if the Book of Mormon is true. And the dad, (Luciano) said "of course! Anything that is the word of Christ I will do!” They're great.
One super funny thing. So, on my ipod I have the BYU Vocal Point hymns collection. And Hermana Cladera loves loves Nearer My God to Thee. So when we are walking en las calles she always has me teach her the words. And she has knows the words in English to a Child’s Prayer. We probably look a little nuts, singing English hymns, but I love it!
Down here the actual day of Easter isn’t that big. What is big is Friday, because the Catholics don’t eat any meat for the whole week and on Friday they eat fish. I sent mom a picture, but we got to our cook’s house and she was just frying fish for us to eat. I was like "what, we really are just going to eat it while the eyeball is staring at me and I have to pick bones out? Alright!" I don’t ever want to eat fish after my mission, but it could’ve been worse! I’m adjusting a lot better to the food. I just grit my teeth and eat it and it’s getting easier. It doesn’t make me sick, just tastes weird.
