Week 64

They closed one of the areas here for the rest of the change, now there are only us and 4 hermanas in the district.  We have a baptism on Saturday.  I'll write a blog post later after he gets baptized.  His brother is a member. We have had several lessons with his family, but only he wants to get baptized at the moment.  One of his cousins was interested.  

The families are working for their marriage.  There will be another fundraiser this Friday.  They're working very hard.  We are making and selling donuts for the fundraiser.

I learned a story about baleadas. There once was a woman selling wrapped tortillas, and she was well known for her delicious food.  One day, she was assaulted and shot (with bullets:  balas in Spanish). She died, but her food lived on.  From that day on, people wouldn’t say, “I’m going to the restaurant.”  Instead, they would claim, “I’m going to the baleada" (literally: shot woman).  And that is how wrapped tortillas became baleadas.  A name that defines the favorite food of a nation.
