Lots of Teaching and Pictures!!

This week was great! I'm going to have to be quick because mom wants me to send some pics. So first we went to an investigators house and we had taught him and his wife a little bit before. But his wife wasn't there and so we just talked to him. He then asked if we wanted to see his house so he started showing us around hahah. Then he asked if we were hungry and offered to buy us dinner and wanted us to stay the night. We told him that we had to go and that we didn't have too much time so he said whenever we want we are welcome to dinner and to sleep at his house haha. Then we were walking down the street a little later and Orlando was calling for us a little behind us. We stopped to talk to him and he had this huge smile on his face. He just got back from buying a bunch of food from the store and invited us to eat tacos with him and his family because he said that he was going to be making a ton that night. Well we ate with him and he's a great cook haha. But it's so great to see how his life is improving every day! Sundays are always the best days. At church we met a sister and a brother that we'd never seen before but they live in our area. The sister is about 20 something and the brother is about 18. The sister has been a member for 6 years but for some reason was going to another ward super far away. The brother isn't a member so she decided to introduce him to the church yesterday. We got their address and went to their house a little later to teach him. It was great! He is super accepting and while he was praying before we left he started to cry and it was super powerful! We set a baptism date with him for next month. If we can keep all the people that we have dates with then we can have about 5-7 baptisms next month!!! I'm so excited! I love and miss you all! 

Love Elder Markham

Here's us making pupusas with the Zepeda family and I started playing with my camera and taking awesome pics ahah. They park the boats kind far in the water and you have to swim out to them haha. I really can not describe where I'm living in email right now. It is amazing!

 Here's the pday when we went to the lake. I'm just standing next to some boats and there's a volcano in the other pic. Pretty cool huh? haha

Here's me and my district leader Elder Cajax from Guatemala. He is the BEST! haha he is a 7 year old in a missionary body. He always needs something to play with and his stories are great! Then the other one is a pic of a little band we found walking down the street. They were very nice to let us take pics with them! These are probably the last for a bit so enjoy them! haha Another elder helped me find a way to take smaller pics so they send faster. I will try that soon so that it's better!
