Que dicen perros?!
It has been an interesting week for sure. hahaha It was the first week for Elder Sandoval in the campo and I really hope I wasn't like that when it was my first week. hahahaha. He walks like 30 feet behind me and doesn't talk at all so it's pretty tough but we're working on it! I mean I'm pretty sure I talked more than him in my first week and I could barely speak spanish hahaha. He's a super cool guy though but just really shy and he likes to sleep. We'll just have to get the ball rolling with him!
It was a pretty tough week for finding people to teach but we're working our butts off. We weren't able to have the 3 baptisms last week. The couple finally got married yesterday which is super awesome! They have been working to get married for baptism for the last 6 months hahaha and it took so long because 1- Mexicans are suuuuper lazy and can't do anything. and 2- the stupid government doesn't know what they're doing hahaha. We're gonna have their baptism this week for sure and also the baptism of another joven named Julio. Hoping it is a pretty good week but we just have to keep working to make it even better! A veces things blows but the odra del Señor is there to help.
This last saturday we played futbol with the youth in the ward and some of these kids are freaking insane hahaha. We bet coke on the games and needless to say we got destroyed hahaha so we bought coke for like 20 kids. It was a good time for sure. After futbol they all wanted to play basketball with me and you already know we plowed them. It's too bad though because now my back hurts...from carrying the team. hahaha
Today for p-day we just walked around Macuspana and bought ice cream and stuff. It was the day I needed for sure. hahaha Sometimes it feels like we are robots out here! Well, ya it was super short but that's all I've got for the week! hahaha
Love you all and have a good week!
