Tuesday - we had a district meeting again, it was good. We had a taller (workshop) in the district meeting about effect contacts with the restoration, and it was awesome. We had the people doing the contacts close their eyes and all the other people made a whole bunch of noise to distract them, it was soo funny. Then we had our personal chef cook for us again, they bought us burgers and then we had some guiso too. Then we had a noche de hogar with a less active family and we milked alfa jores with them, and then played signs and every time we go over the littlest girl always wants to play!
Wednesday - We had interviews with the president, so president stopped doing conferences so we can have more time in our area, but we had our interview at 1 and the only busses to go down are at 9 and 1, then to go back to Vergara are at 1 and 4, so we lost a lot of time just on the schedule. We did divisions with the elders in plaza, had our interviews, then I got my package from the primary, haha it was funny to see all their cards, I might try to write back some of them. Then we had another free day, where all of our appointments fell through and we only walked around trying to find people to contact, that we haven't already contacted
Thursday - not a lot happened today either, but haha my comp was making fun of me for tripping on a rock or something, and he was walking right beside a muddy ditch, and I tried to say cuidado te lanzo al barro (careful I’ll throw you into the mud) but I said cuidado te lanzo al burro (careful I’ll throw you into the donkey) haha!! So now we say that to each other. We went to Alisa, the rich lady that gives us lunch, because it was raining super hard. We were there talking for hour, then they asked if we wanted some soup, we said yea cuz we were hungry then they started making the soup. So we talked a little bit more, then she left for Zumba or something, so we talked with the husband, whose thinking about visiting Texas pretty soon. Then he left to go pick up Alisa from Zumba and we ate our soup. He forgot to put salt it and it wasn't the greatest, but then she came back, put salt in it and it was amazing. Then they gave us asado to take home, and Pepsi haha they’re awesome.
Friday - we had a lesson in the morning with Irio, the 81 year old who always say he’s 81 at every sentence, We talked about attending church, and he said he could probably come next week, he also gave us a reference, his friend that’s in a wheelchair. We passed by him but he didn't seem to interested but he said we could come back, maybe just to get rid of us. Not much else happened. Oh… we went to Jesus and taught him about the gospel of Jesus Christ, I think he’s gonna become the new counsellor pretty soon.
Saturday- we played futbol in the morning, I’m getting a lot better. But I forgot to put sunscreen on because it was cold, and I got burnt a little bit. Then we went to go grab lunch at Edith’s house, and it wasn't ready yet. So we played soccer with her 8 year old grandson, and we kicked the ball near their dog and he bit into it and started shaking it like crazy. We just left it by him and when we tried to grab it he freaked out, it’s like he did it just to mock us, popped our ball, then didn’t even play with it after that. I was pretty choked and then we had another free day.
Sunday - haha so my comp was supposed to do the lesson today in Sunday School and forgot and tried handing it off to me again. Some people from the stake came and gave a class on self sufficiency, so I didn’t have to teach. They talked about single parents and how you can make a decent living, and people who are married too, which our branch needs because there isn't much work in Vergara. Then we cooked up our Asado and it was good.
Monday - we came down to 33 for p-day and we are going to stay the night here and do divisions with the plaza. Oh also were gonna go play basketball and volleyball at the church too today.
This week was pretty hard, not many people accepted us. It kinda felt a little slow too, but it’s ok, I’m actually starting to enjoy it here. I will definitely like another area where there is a lot of work to be done. Other than that I’m good!!
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle, and put in under a bushel,
but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are
in the house. Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven."
