it was way great to talk to you guys! so crazy how fast time is moving. i think my comp is going cause he has been here a long time. and good i want to go on a cruise so bad! i don't care where we go...surprise me! have fun in Vegas and...HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! well last Monday we just stayed in the room all day and played uno...so ya. Tue. i went back to the doctor and he said that i have to keep resting, but i am starting to leave little by little, but still i gotta rest a little and we were at the church for like 2 hours while the zone leaders were interviewing 2 people that were baptized. wed. i gave my district meeting class which went okay, it was kinda hard on crutches..thu. i did a test call on skype with my mission pres. and we had 2 baptisms! the guy who got baptized, his daughter is on her mission, so we used skype, and she got to see her dad get baptized which was cool (hence the test call with pres.) then we went and sang in chiclayo which was way fun! even though it was hard to move around with hundreds of people around you.but it was still a blast! then church was only one hour. so that's been my week for you guys. hope you guys have a great week, it was great to talk to you guys again! and yes be planning that cruise!!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!
the assistants told me, yes my mission pres. is coming home that day as well. yes my pension does live in a store, she lives a block away, 10 min.
this week, I'm not gonna lie, its sucked. Last pday we were playing soccer, and i jumped and i did ligament damage in my foot. So i have been locked in my room the entire week. tuesday i went to the hospital, the doctor first thought that my foot was broken, but he took xrays and there wasn't a crack, but there is ligament damage. The doctor wanted to give me a shot in my butt. and right before the nurse was about to give me it. one of the office elders called and reminded us to call sister williams before we did anything. so i called her and we couldn't receive shots. so that saved me from a painful experience! but this entire week i have been in my room. Friday i left for a Christmas multi zone which was pretty cool. that and church sunday have been the only times i have left the room this week my comp and i have spent all week watching movies, and being bored. so sorry this has been so short..but that's been my week.
my new place is pretty nice, i will send photos next week, i forgot, sorry. my new comp is pretty cool we get along okay. my pension is the nicest lady ever! pic below. the town is normal sized and there is tons of dirt!
there are 6 elders in my district including me.
last Monday i had my goodbye at a members house which was kinda sad...oh and i got a surprise!...so I'm NOT coming home on the 4th.....I'm coming home...........the 13th of June, 3 weeks early because of the change of mission presidents. so surprise!! Tuesday the changes happened. i got to my new area and the entire morning we went out and got to know the members which was good, they are great! the bad thing about this area is that there is nobody...well we have a baptism date for the 23rd of this month so that will be cool, but other than that, there is NOTHING! we have spent all this week knocking doors which was awful!
wed. we had ward council at night time and the church was having problems with the light system so the lights kept going on and off really fast, so the church looked like a haunted house...haha. Thursday we had a lesson with some inv. and after they gave us some mango flavored popsicles. friday we practiced our scripture mastery's and for everyone we missed we had to do 5 push ups. then we went to a member so he could come out with us, and his dad owns a store so he kept giving us soda and treats..haha. then we went and totally burned a inv. cause she cant get her head around the fact that her baptism is incorrect. after burning her she gave us hot chocolate and bread...haha. on sat. we were walking and a car drove passed us and splashed a mud puddle on us, so that bugged me a little. on sun. church was good, all the members are super nice, again we just walked around all day so this area is good, just TONS of walking...so that's been my week i hope you guys have a great week. love you guys!
transfers.....yes i have a chance...i am going to the area...Pueblo Nuevo in the zone Latina....which is the same zone where i got robbed 3 times...but i know that's where the Lord needs me. i don't get to call home...dang. i did get to watch the devotional great!
So i have some bad news...President Williams said that now we cannot use recorders to send our voices...so sorry its all letters from here on out. but last Monday all we did was play soccer which was kinda boring. Tuesday was okay. i bought a mango that was super sour...which really bummed me cause now is the season for mango's.. we also had the 1st councilor from the stake presidency come out with us which was fun...hes a cool guy. after he bought us bread...haha. ON wed. we did weekly planning kinda early. After i did a work exchange with Elder Erazo from Ecuador. i have known him for more than a year now so it was fun to hang with him. we taught a lady whose top lip was tiny, and her bottom lip looked like it got stung by a bee after we tried to get a taxi to take us for 80 cents, but he wanted 1 sole, we told him we didn't have a sole, so he flipped us off, i don't get it... then a cough started to come on...thursday was horrible. the morning we contacted a really rich part, then my cough got really bad, so we rested the afternoon.
Friday we had zone conference which went good i will let you know next week what day i will skype (i don't think its gonna be on Christmas) then we visited a recent convert whose family left him for going the church. when we passed by, he had not eaten in 3 days and he talked about taking his own life. after the lesson i went over to the store and bought him 2 days worth of food, service just makes people happy. especially since I'm one of Christ's representatives right now. sat. and sun i was sick coughing all day, i bought some cough syrup that seems to be helping. so ya...that's been my week, i love you guys! talk to ya guys next week!
