How are y’all doing today? :)
Monday-- So on p-day, we played some soccer and that was pretty sick. I scored twice and I didn’t do too bad and won un poco (a little bit) so that was pretty sick. Then we went and ate at Buen Sabor which is a restaurant that is pretty cheap (for like 15 mil so that’s like 5 mil) haha and then we emailed. Then I went to Eva’s house and talked to her daughter who we are baptizing this week. Then we talked to Ariel and that was pretty chill, nothing too crazy.
Tuesday.... We had a district meeting then we went to lunch with the dueno (owner) of our house and that was pretty good. ;) Then we went to do Elder Gummersall’s district leader responsibilities and were at the ciber (cybercafé) for like 2.5 hours and that wasn't very fun :), but we started working at like 6 and went to Martinez and that was super dope (awesome) because the guy was just reactivated and was like, “Yeah I want you guys to come to the Temple when I go through for the first time.” Then we went to Lorena’s for un poco (a little bit) and that was chill. Then we went to our noche de hogar (Family Home Evening) and ate pizza and had passion fruit juice and that was pretty good.
Wednesday I literally did nothing. I went on a division and we didn’t really teach anything. I read a lot of stuff, but we didn’t do much. We went to the ciber for a couple hours then went to a member’s house but nothing really more.
Thursday we set the goal to contact a little bit more because we didn’t have anyone to baptize. So we went to lunch and I got some yucky juice with remedies, which is like drinking doTERRA straight -- I have a picture of the juice and it is pretty gnarly. Then we ate crocodile and then we went and contacted a lot. Mom's note: I find it interesting that he ate crocodile and was so non-chalant about it. Then we went and found someone that we contacted and she became a nuevo (committed to baptism) and that was super chill. Then we contacted more, and then went to the Soto house and Adriana became a nuevo (committed to baptism) and she is super sick (awesome). Then we went to Eva’s house and then we contacted more.
Friday we had weekly planning and then we went to lunch and that was pretty good. Then we went and talked to a guy named Mario and his brother and they became nuevos (committed to baptism) and that was super sick (awesome). Then we went home and did language study and then we went out and went to the Florentine house. Then we went to the Lopez house and taught one of their friends and it is sick because I feel like she will get baptized. Then we went to Eva’s house and then we went to Lorena’s house.
Saturday we made lunch and talked to Galleano. We tried to contact. We taught a lesson with 4 people and then we went to Rapheala Lopez’s house and then we went to the Selvaro family and it was pretty cool.
Sunday we had like 5 menos activos (less actives) in church and that was pretty sick. Then we had lunch with the Fernandez family. Then we talked to the aunt of Eva and to the Soto family and to Niko and then we talked to Eva and Fabiolla looked excited to get baptized on the 4th and that is super, super sick (awesome). I am super stoked with that. I was able to eat mangos on Sunday and they were pretty delicious.
Monday I played basketball and then we went and ate and now I am here.
