Week 64: Pupusas! Tres por el dolar!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard right.  Pupusas!!!  I made pupusas this week.  A less active family invited me and my companion to make pupusas with them.  And I took the opportunity to ask the mom of the family to teach me how to make them.  Oriente pupusas are different from San Salvador pupusas.  From what I've seen people make pupusas the same way that they make tortillas.  Here in Oriente they use a circular sheet of plastic to make relatively thin tortillas (and pupusas.  That is very different from the way they do things in San Salvador.  The good thing is that the pupusas are still extremely delicious.

This week we also found a ton of new investigators.  15 to be exact.  It is awesome finding more people to teach.  It's something that I don't always like doing here, looking for new investigators.  We had a cool experience on Sunday though.  We were short of meeting our goal of 12.  We made plans to go and contact in part of our area that we hadn't worked in.  In all of our prayers that day, we prayed for help finding new investigators.  When we went out to work, we couldn't seem to find an open door.  We went around searching for a while, and finally felt prompted to talk to a family in a certain house.  We did, and found five new investigators there.  Then, when we went to our next appointment, we found another two investigators.  That gave us the total of 15!

Well, my time ran out...  Gotta go.  Love you all!  Talk to you next week!
