It was our good fortune to be able to spend St. Valentine's Day (Or Friendship Day as it is called here) with this zone!!
I then had all the missionaries search Chapter 3, lesson 1 looking for evidence of Heavenly Father's love. I think the longest list so far is 32.
Next we searched lesson 2 looking for evidence of the Savior's love. This is the lesson on the Plan of Salvation. Once again we learned that love is the motivation behind everything the Savior does as well--both love for Heavenly Father and love for us.
Lastly we talked about our motives for service. Is it out of love? We then went to Preach My Gospel Chapter 6 and studied Charity. I had the missionaries search What is it? Why do we need it? How can I obtain it? and What are the blessings of having it? (A good activity for a family night:-)
Later we had a fun activity--Scripture Chase (You can take the seminary teacher out of the classroom . . . . ) These elders were all pretty quick!!
Elder J had the job of mixing the drink. (If you don't have a spoon, just use your muscles!)
Today's meal was Birria. It is a traditional stew, normally made with goat's meat, but I think in this case it was pork. At least that is what it tasted like to me. It was very delicious!! And we got to eat it with corn tortillas straight off the griddle that were delivered to the church door by a man on a bike.
No, they are not in pain. They are hungry!! They can hardly wait to get some of the yummy food!

What is this? Sneaking into the frosting? Elders!!
It was a great way to spend Valentines!!
