time is going super fast and holy cow on the 27th i completed 9 months out here and everyone tells me the last 9 fly!
so this week was better! its been pouring rain and gonna last for a while longer they say because it started later than usual
monday we went to megapaca as a zone. its a giant store like goodwill but all the clothes are from the states and some still have tags on them. its great and super cheap most of the time. the elders found some sweet ties and some that are leaving bought regular clothes to wear in their houses super smart! then we had a noche de hogar with familia lucas. i love them but man me and my companion got to see a different side of the husband acting like he is a king and expecting his wife to fill the toastadas for him. im not a femanist but i think im becoming a bit of one here just seeing the culture difference. im grateful for a lot of the little things like gentlemen!!!!
tuesday we had district meeting. i love district meetings, it makes the week go faster. then later we taught english then we rushed to go see elizabeth the lady with the korean dudes. we met her friend josilin and we just got to know her and planned to come back the next day.
wednesday we had a multizona and we had to go early and get the bishops keys to open the church. super stressful running around with the hermanas of prado trying to find the microphones and everything before president arrived. i was called on to give the opening prayer. i swear i always have a neon sign over my head at the big conferences! last time i bore my testimony and this time, prayed. what is this!!! later in the night we visited elizabeth and josilin and they made us like a 3 course meal. they gave us a hot dog randomly and then the asian made this spicy noodle soup then we had a banana pancake. all with seven up. thought i was going to burst! they think we are black holes or something. we had a super good lessson with them and man i love them!
thursday my companion was sick all that night before and had to call the nurses at like 1 am because she has a double ear infection and the pain was super strong. the told her how to help the pain with a warm washcloth and it helped her sleep till we went to buy meds in the morning. poor girl. we couldn't be out much that day because it was pouring rain and she was super congested so mejor en la casa.
friday we had lunch with a fav member but she gave us bananas and sour cream for dessert. you know how i feel about sourcream and other milk products. it was tough but i did it jajajaja i also bought some super cheap corte from a less active because she bough tit for cheap. im so excited about it.
saturday i completed 9 months so my comp made me chocolate chip pancakes and we had lunch with aura our favorite. we had some citas then at night we went to the womans conference and i wish i could have watched it in english but spanish will do. then we visited elizabeth and josilin for a bit but they said they couldnt come to church sunday because the korean was mad and they were all having problems in the house and its his baby that she has so she cant really leave without his permission but next week hopefully.fingers crossed!
sunday denny came to church with us. he is great he just needs to ask his parents permission. he comes to all the activities and everything! and loves church becasue we move from class to class and he doesnt get bored.
we invited edgar to be baptised and he said yes! we didnt put a date with him yet but we are hoping to next week. it wasnt the right timing for him yet but poco a poco. he is so pilas! we also visited a new lady aurie and she had a huge rat in her house. i saw it when it was jumping from the floor to the counter and scurry behind the microwave. she invited us to her daughters birthday dinner but after seeing that..haha just joking.
something in the womans conference i loved was that we accepted this calling of this life and i accepted my mission call before my life here and that helps me realize that i can do it and God will help me and there is a plan!
well i hope you all had a great week!
love you all!
