Week 68 . . .Painting and Packages!
Whats up compas?
It's been a rollercoaster of a week if I do say so myself. A lot of hearing "no I'm busy" and walking around aimlessly but that's ok right? Those days make the success so much better! We have been looking for some new people and we have a few good ones. I found out that my replacement is coming in on Monday. Yeehaw, so I'm not gonna finish my mission in the offices! I'll still be in here for a few more weeks though to train the newbie but we'll see how long, I already have over 8 months so what's a little bit more time? lol La neta I'm gonna miss this place but more than anything the ward here. They're all so cool. It's legit like another family!! But I mean that's part of the mish, just gotta keep it moving and hope that the next area is as good as this one.
Today we went and did a little bit of service! We helped my converts paint their house which doesn't happen very often but I mean it turned out good! It took so freaking long but they were so happy so I don't even care. They were not worried about how well it's done either so it doesn't matter if we sucked at painting hahaha. It was fun though!
I would like to be the first to congratulate Parker and Ari on the engagement. So felicidades! I would've loved to be there but at this point I'm alright with it hahaha. Hope you guys are doing good and having fun! But not too much fun...
Love you all hope you have a good week!
Ps Thanks for the early Christmas package mom
Pps Sorry for opening the presents already
Ppps rawr XD
Que dicen a todos?
It has been raining everyday here in Villa, i don't know if I can take much more of these dang mosquitoes. I finish everyday with about 40 picaduras because there are so many, but I guess that's what happens when it's so humid all the time. You know it's really humid when you leave your room in the morning and your glasses fog up in the hallway hahaha. Well, that's what I'm living with right now, How are you all doing? It was cambios week here in the mish so it was pretty busy. All the new booty got here on Monday, the old people went out on Tuesday, Then we had the conejo of the zone leaders here on Wednesday! We worked like 13 hours in our area total but you know we're doing what we can!
Right now we are working a lot with the family of our converts. It has been super cool because before they didn't want anything but now they are starting to open up a little! Por ejemplo the mom of Lupita, Maria Cruz, got sick this week and the first thing she did was call us up and ask her for a blessing! She has told us many times about how she is catholic and doesn't want to listen or anything, but asking for a blessing is showing a little fe am i right? Also the brother of Lupita and Che, Chucho, never wanted to listen and would just play fifa the whole time we were there but now he's reading el libro de mormon and everything and is gonna go to church tomorrow! Little miracles happening, let's see if we can find a few more!
Also, I met a guy this week that his actual name is Elder hahaha and his brother is Moroni! We got into his taxi and that was the first thing he said to us lol. Elder de Jesus Hernandez Lopez. Great man.
Well wish me luck this week! i hope you are all living the pachanga as the great Brick Tamland once said "I love lamp." Stay sweet.
It's time to say hoooowwwdy to all you goofy goobers!
Happy Halloween to all my people in the great US of A. and to my people here happy dia de muertos! Nothing really crazy goes on with the holidays just a lot of drinking and parties, so I guess you could say we're having a good time. hahaha. Great week here in Mexico. Chambeando macizo and looking for some new people to teach! Today we got to do something super awesome! So early this morning all of the jovenes in the ward went to the temple to do baptisms at like 6 am, AND like 4 of my converts went!!! Emelyn, Darlyn, Lupita, y Maria Jose went to the temple and we got to go watch them do the baptisms!! I am so freaking pumped hahaha I love everyone here!! They were all so excited I'm so happy!!! Lupita told me before that she was super nerviosa and didn't really know what to expect but after she was so excited! It really is something super admirable. hahaha She got baptized like a month ago and Maria Jose last week! They went to the temple already!!!! Ahhhh so cool hahaha. We took a dope pic and everyone there doesn't even make it to my shoulder. I felt like I dressed up as Willie Wonka for Halloween and they were all my oompa loompas. But la neta I am so happy right now, That is like the ultimate goal to get people to go to the temple and they did it!!! Makes all the garbage days when no one wants to talk to us pay off. hahaha.
We also started teaching the brother of Lupita y Maria Jose!! His names Jesus but everyone calls him Chucho, 17 years old and super cool kid. He has always been there when we have gone to visit and teach them but just out of nowhere he wanted to listen! We went yesterday and was like "Hey can I go to the temple with them?" I told him that he had to be a member which means getting baptized and he was like "Well if I want to get baptized when can I do it?" hahaha So we're hoping that everything goes well with that! Looks pretty promising right now so let's see what we can do lol Try to get one more before they move me out of here.
Fun fact: I have almost been here in this ward for 8 months. Also, I only have like 8 months left. Que pedo no? jajaja
Well I love you all, good luck this week and don't do anything too dumb.
