A drunk man bought us popsicles

Yes, it is true. We were sitting on a curb talking to a lady named Rosa (more on that later) and he walked by, shook our hands, asked if we were married to Rosa's sons, left and then came back with popsicles. A little weird...But we were okay with it...free popsicles. 
     We contacted a lot this week. It was great fun! Like always, we contacted some strange people. We talked to this one guy in English. He had lived in the states for 24 years so he could speak pretty well. He knew all the swear words pretty well too. Haha.
     We talked to a lady at a park and she seemed pretty interested. After the lesson she pointed to a guy sitting on a bench a ways away and said "You should go talk to him!" Okay. We went over to talk to him and it turns out he was sitting there studying English for his class! How cool! Thank you lady at the park! He said he is going to come to our English class!  
     But we contacted really nice people too! We passed a woman named Rosa on the street. She was sitting on the curb and looked like she had been crying. We passed her then said "Should we talk to her?" We pretended to buy something in a tienda then went back to where she was and started talking to her. She told us she had four kids but two of them lived in Brazil (they are older). She said she misses them a lot. I shared Alma 7:11-13 with her (to read it online go here  https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/alma/7?lang=spa ) and told her that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love her a LOT and that Christ suffered all of her pain and sorrow. I don't think I have ever felt so much love for a person before. I didn't even know this lady named Rosa but I loved her and I wanted her to be happy! That is what I love about the gospel of Jesus Christ. It makes people happy! I am grateful to be here and teach people about happiness. 

Love,
