Stomach over Spirit

Friends and Family, 

This past week has been filled with a lot of cool things. This past P-Day, our zone went hiking up in this cool town called Leavenworth. It's a super touristy town, where everything is super German. Even the gas stations as German. It looks like something out of Shrek. All the people who live there speak with German accents and are super funny. It's such a beautiful town. These members that live up there hosted a German BBQ where they cooked us authentic German brats and German potato salad and strudels and everything. 

In Wenatchee over the past week there has also been this giant parade/festival called the Apple Blossom Festival. It's like the big event of the year, and at this park they host this food fest where all of these food vendors come and sell all sorts of cool foods. Tons of people attend so we went one day for lunch and tried out some of the food and talked with a ton of people and explained what we do as missionaries.

I also went on exchanges with some of the Elders in our zone that serve in the Spanish Ward here in Wenatchee, and this Sister named Liliana cooked us real authentic carne asada tacos for dinner. It was some of the best food I've eaten on the mission. She made her own homemade salsa and tamarind drink and everything. It was her son's birthday that day so she gave us birthday hats to wear and ate some really good birthday cake as well. 

The family of our recent convert came to church yesterday! Miguel's mom has recently found herself in some humbling circumstances and came to us asking for guidance and help. We told her that no matter what is going on in life, church will always bless you. We pointed out the changes that have been made in her son Miguel, and with a softened heart she brought the whole family to church. They are such a great family, and I have so much love for each of them. 

I feel like most of this email is centered on the food I've eaten over the past week, so you can see that my priorities are still right in order. Love you all!

Con Mucho Amor, 

Elder King
