this week was crazy!!!!
im in malacas which is short for malacatancito i think is how you spell it.
my companion is darly garcia from bolivia but everyone thinks she is chinese because she has ancestors from korea jaja mi chinita. she has 3 months in the mission but i still feel like i have 3 months too but i just completed 11 this week! craziness
so monday night hna garcia and her comp hna cadwell came and slept in our house so cadwell and thompson my comp could leave to xela at 3 in the morning for transfers in the terminal. we all four slept in 2 beds and it was super weird...jaja then tuesday morning we finished my packing and some members drove me and my new comp to malacas where we met the elders outside of our new house. we live in a 3 story house on the second floor. we got in there and started cleaning because people havent lived there in like a year or two. spiders everywhere and i think im getting better at killing them but only the super giant ones i let my comp handle! because they are as big as my palm. no thank you jaja. we cleaned then went and contacted for hours before lunch with hna alma who makes us lunch everyday and we just pay her every month.
we got to meet the branch president and he is so cool! been in 6 months and the branch has an assistance of 40 to 50 people. that night when we got home he called us to give talks on sunday and said to be prepared for 15 min and this would probably happen every month at least because there are not a lot of people to choose from. this area is going to help me grow a lot spiritually especially because we also have to help give training meetings to presidencies like the relief society in the branch.
wednesday we had district meeting and it was cool seeing everyones new companions! almost everyone is one latino and one gringo which is pretty cool. i got assigned to give the message in the next district meeting! whoohoo.
im just a little nervous about it.
thursday i competed 11 months in the mission and holy cow its so weird! we just contacted all day and visited members and less actives. its a neat area and when we go to lunch we have to walk up a mountain and i literally feel like im hiking in the mountains in mccall. pine trees and all. i love it. perfect for christmas time just missing the snow!
friday we went before lunch to watch the family kill a pig. it was crazy and everyone thought me and my comp were gonna throw up but we were just taking videos and watching this brave old lady cut the pigs throat. then they shaved it and gutted it. got it all ready to make chicharrón. that was a pretty cool experience i will never forget!
well i love my area and me and my comp are just contacting for now. we have a few investigators that are starting to progress so we are excited! but thats all for this week
hope you all have a great and safe week!
