It has been a rough week for Tanner. Or as he said a couple of rough months. The biggest challenge of the week was trying to find that family that wants to be baptized but don’t go to church because the dad drinks. They really want to help them but they aren’t accepting them lately. The biggest accomplishment was probably that we found that hippy chick that we were teaching and we taught her a little more. Kinda a small accomplishment. She really was excited when they told her about the Book of Mormon and she still hasn’t started yet but Tanner see a lot of potential. Last week was transfers and one of the Elders that was in the mission office with him has been transferred. The mission office is a lot quieter without Elder Tate. I guessing that is a sad thing not a good thing.
Day of the Dead is actually really cool. First it started on Saturday with Halloween which is an American thing but they have started doing that too. So they just walk outside and go outside of houses chanting, “we want Halloween we want Halloween”. It was funny. But then on Sunday was the day of the dead for children and today is more of the adult’s party. It is a cool holiday people just dress up or paint their faces like skulls and walk around. They make offerings to their ancestors to celebrate the life of that person the offering is for. It is a bit strange but also cool. Members don’t really do offerings though so they don’t usually celebrate it.
