My name as "caliente"

Hey everyone!

So this week was pretty interesting. The work is getting harder but we don't ever  give up. So on Monday of couse we had p- day which is my favourite Haha. On Tuesday we basically searched for people and we found this lady well she found us her name was Maria Luis she asked us if we were like preachers and we said no " missionaries" haha she
literally told us hey I live right over there you can come any day and visit me I would like to hear from you. We were like heck yeah,people literally don't come up to us and say that they want to hear us haha. But we gave her our number and she asked if we could pray for her and she asked me to pray because she was sick and she felt better afterwards. She was awesome, we may visit her some day. Haha we had a lesson afterwards with an investigator her name is Adrianna and she is nice, but we extended the invitation to be baptized and she said no because she's already baptize, well she said when she was young to the Catholic Church. Ugh I just get frustrated when people tell me this and I just feel like telling them they are wrong but since I'm a missionary I can't and I have be nice sometimes haha but some people are just so ahhh. Haha well we taught her about the Book of Mormon and invited her to read it. Now I know how to give the Book
of Mormon to someone it's so easy. Haha on Wednesday we got invited by this man he is a member. He is pretty weird but I like when he invited us to eat haha we ate tacos! I always get carne Asada and lengua which is cow tongue it's sooo good. I realized that I have gained weight and lost some haha but at least I'm not really fat so far hopefully I don't get there. Well my clothe still fit so I guess I'm still okay. Haha later on that day this sister invited us to eat pizza from Costco and this girl asks if she could sit with us and were like yeah?! And she started talking how she was a Mormon and that she is from Utah but she left the church and left her family when she turned 18. She basically wanted to do whatever she wanted. But she got to some point that everything with her life was
going wrong and she had so many trials in her life and she said that she came to the point where she hated God but one day she said she decided to pray and to get closer to God because she was at some point ready to commit Suicide and she was broke she had no life, no family,work was horrible she hated herself and she started reading the
scriptures and saying her prayers, and read her Patriarchal blessing and she went to church. But she could not find any church meetings in English they were all either Chinese or Spanish. Haha we told her that the one we go to is English and Spanish and we gave her our number. She told us that we were her answer to her prayers that she needed to go back to church because now she knows that Heavenly Father is there and that he is
here to help her. She has learned from her trials. It was a great experience. On Thursday some person thought my name as "caliente" and I said NO it's "Escalante" haha and he said well you're still caliente haha I'm like thank you weird person. We tried to teach him something but he said he already goes to another church. On Friday we had a church tour with one of our investigators his name is Vicente. Everything went great our goal. The goal was to bring our investigators to church to show them the church but only Hermana Bateman and I brought our investigator. Other ward missionaries didn't.Yeah we did good. On Sunday we had a farewell or we call it "despedida" 20 missionaries left. :( I met a lot of other missionaries. And 3 people that I knew left :(  but I didn't get transferred because I'm still In training. But I met some people from Honduras I literally was so happy cause there way to many Mexicans here haha they were so nice. Well this week was great and I hope everyone is doing great! I love it here and I love this gospel. Email me! :)
