Exchange day with Elder Moorali...funniest kid on the planet

Signing a bat at the house...
there were already a bunch of missionary signatures on it....

Ready to go....biking that day....

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell here's the scoop. 
     So, this last week, we had a specialized training with the north half of the mission, where we talked aloooooot about love unity and obedience, and what it could do for us. the AP's had posed a question, "why are these three things important?" And i had a thought come to mind. The city of Enoch, when it was taken up into Heaven, was nothing short of Miraculous. Personally i think it's one of the most miraculous things to have transpired in history. (next to christ's ministry) And the simple reason that it happened, was because of pure obedience. The people of the city were exactly obedient. and becasue they were, they had unity. and love, and everything was just happy and righteous. because it was so righteous god just brought the whole city up.
Miracles come by obedience simple as that. 
that was my thought, though i kept it to myself. i did have to smile though when the ap's last slide had said Obedience (Unity+Love) = Miracles. haha 
So, right now, we are working with the most wonderful person named Fito, and his wife Laura. They were absolutlely stunned, when we knocked on the door to ask if we could share a prayer with them, and that we came in the name of the savior. They said that they believe we are messengers of Jesus Christ. And when we taught the restoration, they absolutely LOVED it, though, the whole authority part was a little lost on them, but it's ok because we are going over there friday and will be going over that with them. But before we left, we told them that we wanted them to pray. We taught them that because we are not god, we cannot prove a single thing to them, that only the father can. so we told them that they needed to pray, with sincerity, with real intent, and with faith in christ, if our messages that we had to share with them, is what God wanted for them. and we promised them that God would answer their prayer through the holy ghost, that it would be a most wonderful feeling, a little different than anything else they had ever felt before, but that they would know. 
As we were leaving, Fito set a return appointement with us before we were able to set one with them! haha and when he was walking away i asked him "hey, what are you going to do tonight?"
and he replied with "im praying as soon as i get to the house!" they are awesome!

So, a rather fun thing happened yesterday. So I'm pretty sure the water here is about as imported as my companion. and by imported i mean it's gotta BE from Jupiter because the water is NASTY. tastes so bad. So, me being me, and deciding it was time for some ingenuity, i decided that it would be time to make a distiller. We have a steamer, and a fridge, and an empty 3 gallon water bottle, so Hey, this will be easy right? so we put the fridge as cold as it would go, put a bunch of ice in the bottle, rigged up the steamer hose so that it was """""sealed""""" onto the bottle, (hey, there's only so much you can do with tin foil and duct tape. this was a loooow budget project ;) ). then we set the bottle in the fridge, taped the hose in place, closed the fridge door as much as it would go, taped it "shut" and stuffed a bunch of towels in all the cracks... Yes, this was well thought out ;)
then we fired up the steamer, and away it went!
it seemed like such a good idea, and about five minutes later, as i was checking to make sure there wasn't a whole lot of cold escaping, i made a rather interesting discovery. not only was the cold not escaping, the HEAT was escaping! haha i opened it up and the bottle was losing it's shape and the duct tape was practicly melted. and in short, failed project haha. don't worry, the fridge is empty because we are starving missionaries. haha jk it's cause we decided it was time to do some clean up.
a rather fun story. Well,
looks like that'd be all for this week. love you guys!
