Flying Soccer Ball

Hey y’all!!!! It has been an awesome week here in Las Americas! We had such a good week!! Each day with Elder McKane is an adventure!! So we live with Elder Brown and Elder Batista and we share this ward! It is a blast living with those guys! We have funny stories and memorable moments! Namely this week! 
Chilean Cowbiy

So we are on our way back from lunch, and we are in a bit of the rougher part of our sector. These 5 kids between 10 to 15 years old are  playing soccer and are greeting at us GRINGOS. So they pass us the soccer ball after we walked by them and it goes right to Elder McKane! Elder McKane is 6 3 and has crazy long legs, (And the most hilarious Cristiano Ronaldo / Alexis Sanchez free kick impression) hahaha So he takes a few steps back and does his Ronaldo impression and then goes to kick it.....The ball flew straight up and to the right. If there hadn't been electrical lines, it would have flown over the house! We all died laughing hahaha! It was so funny and those kids laughed too! We then talked with them, and now they are coming to mutual this Friday with us!

We also had some killer lessons this week! Mainly with Victor! So we finally got to meet back up with Victor after him being out of town for a week!! With Victor, our other investigator that has a date for his baptism, we taught him a lesson on the plan that our Heavenly Father has for us! We shared about what happened in the premortal life, our purpose here on earth, and what will happen after! It was an awesome message and we knew he liked it and then asked him what he thought of everything that we shared. He looked down at the folder that has each step of this plan and sat there for a second without saying anything. A few seconds after, he looked up at us and said, ¨”this plan is true. With all my heart, I know that this is the truth¨" We sat there in silence, and really let the spirit manifest itself to him! we put some goals and set a baptism date with him!!

Overall, A great week! Day in and day out! Trying to find people, trying to figure out problems, and serving! It is a blast! I think that as we put our efforts in good works whether that is missionary work, our normal jobs, or in our family, the better we feel inside! Our good efforts bring good recompenses!
