Well Everyone i am super sorry for last week haha my email was kinda ugly, short, and yeah just bad... haha, but im going to do a lot better this week. Holy smokes T´was a big week this week, we had a lot of lessons :) and a lot of rain... haha ill talk more about the lessons and investigators later but yeah it rained quite a bit this week not a whole lot but one day randomly a dark cloud covered the city and rain just started pounding everyone and everything haha i thought the earth was being flooded again and me and my comp had to build a ship ;) and fill it with chihuahuas and tortillas ;) but yeah I LOVE THE RAIN!! its so refreshing way better than the sun haha, and it makes walking in the streets more fun because you have to walk through or jump huge puddles sometimes you have to walk half a block just to find a spot where theres not that much water to cross the street because almost all the streets are flooded. haha its pretty cool :), also what i was talking about the other week with the soccer thing with sergio ahhh that was so fun to play soccer with him and his buddies haha, it was super getto but its how the kids play here we just started playing in the street they put two rocks like 6 feet apart in the road for the goal and you just go ate it and pray you dont kick the ball into a window haha, we ended up winning... no big deal....;) Also this week was really cool we had a lot of good lessons we taught Isela and we talked about the role she has as a mother and wife and how the church can truly bless her family, it was a really beautiful lesson, she says that her husband isnt as interested in the church as her and we explained that she has the responsbaliity to be the mother and example for her family and invited her to the chruch she said shell see what she can do, we got to church that day and she was there with her two kids it was awesome!!! This made me think of our famliy, how grateful i am for my parents that put me in the straight and narrow path and not just put me there but walked with me, like what our brother would do, he would not leave us alone, and never will, he will walk with us, also something that i said that i would like to share is i told Isela that yes this church is a church for God but the next most important thing in the church is the family because the families are eteranl like our Heavenly Fathers love :) we are going to continue to teach her and hopefully have a baptism with her, We also had a lesson with our investigator Guadalupe this week that is going to be baptized this friday... Thats right THIS FRIDAY.  We are so stoked he truly is a "escogido" he is changing his life in his work, he is bullied for his belief in this gospel but continues to attend church and share his testimony of the love of christ with his co workers. He is an amazing man :) anyways the lesson we had was with Hermano Quintero of my favorite members in our ward hes such a funny old dude :) also with our mission leader, so the lesson we share was our purpose of our life in the earth, and the brothers got to share their testimonies of how they felt when they were baptized and invited him to activities in the church and was really cool :) and Guadalupe was like i want to baptized in the sea!! and we are like alright we will see what we can do haha we called presidente and said that its too dangerous... :/ and it would be more sacred in the font, and guadalupe understood that :), but hermano Quintero was like no worries lets go!! get in the truck haha super funny but yeah we are super excited for this friday because he really is such a good guy, we got a lot to teach him so we will be working hard this week also we are going to baptize the investigator of the sister missoinaries too Juan Alfredo we have been working with him, because its safer if us as guys work with him, and this week he will be baptized with Juan Alfredo :) :)!!! super good week thanks for the prayers from everyone thanks to you guys the missionary work in Guasave is continuing progressing and more and more children of our Heavenly Father are finding the hope and happiness in this life :) thank you for everything guys your perfect and I love you all so much :)

Funny story... ;) (Always gotta have a funny story) haha so we were inviting people to church sunday morning and we went to a house of a couple that we are teaching and we were trying to get them to answer the door becuase we saw the sister through the window so we are saying "good morning" over and over again and, shes ignoring us haha and so finally Elder Yoo is like GOOD MORNING!! screams it and im like ayyy elder Tranquilo (relax) and we just laugh a lil but we are waiting and then her husband walks up with a wagon full of cactus and were like hey hermano are you going to go to church today and his all nervous and he doesnt really answer us and were like its just for an hour hermano, and his like... ummmm... ummm its that i have to plant this cactus.... and we were like you cant do it after and hes like nope. haha and as we left elder yoo was like "Elder did he just say he cant attend church because he has to plant his cactus" and i just responded "Welcome to mexico" haha Love you guys so much and i hope you all have an amazing week.!!  :) 

Love Elder Tanner
