Sorry I didn't take any pictures of what I looked like after the fall. And sadly there are no pictures for this week either. Also another sad story—I think my birthday package is lost forever.
First off, I want to tell you about an investigator we are teaching right now. His name is Alfonso. We found him one day as he was walking from the store to his house. When he saw us, he stopped in the middle of the street to stare at us, so we decided to talk with him. He invited use to visit with him in his home. As we talked, we came to know that he is 97 years old. But he acts and talks like someone who is in their 70s or 80s. Then we met his wife, Maria. She is 85. They are a really neat couple. They have been married for 65 years. Every time we pass by their house to teach there are always more family members and neighbors to teach. They are really Catholic but we are going to keep teaching them and see how it goes.
These past couple days I have been a little sick. But don't worry it’s just the croup.
In my Zone there are four North Americans. The past couple weeks one of them has been trying to make mashed potatoes. And for the past couple weeks, he has arrived at our weekly district meetings without accomplishing his goal of making mashed potatoes. I gave him a couple of pointers and he still couldn't do it. So one day he called me up on the phone and I walked him step by step through the process. Long story short—he now knows how to make mashed potatoes!
I can’t wait to talk with you guys on Mother’s Day.
Love, Elder Rucker
