Well we started the week out strong by having the zone leaders pound the door at 11pm because our phone didn´t have service to call at night and they thought we died. We had a water war for Pday and its pretty much like heaven since we’re dying here in the heat.
Thursday, while we were knocking a door, these two little kids ran up to me and asked me if i wanted a dog. I asked them how much it was and they said ..mmm… one second..and to ask their little gang of 6yr olds how much. They came running back saying it cost 5soles which like a buck fifty hahaa They told me …We just found it in the street, do you want it or not?… I was going to explain that we weren´t allowed but all i said was no, and in he cut me off and said …pshh yea vamos…. and they walked away ahah I was dying.
Im sending pictures of the chapel and this hideous peruvian dog that everyone keeps trying to tell me I need to let it sit on my chest to heal my asthma and my nine months and I dont know what else!
Not a ton happened this week. We FINALLY got a fridge and microwave!! We were so excited! We celebrated the 1 year of my companion and I had a lady make her a special surprise cake. We made eggs in the microwave and my stomach felt so weird to eat real food!!
The elders had a baptism and the girl was scared and kept jumping out of the water so by the third time they finally just used two guys to hold her down. I love you all!!!!!
There is also a picture of my washing my clothes in the sink and of our Pday last monday!
We FINALLY got a fridge and microwave!!
Tuesday– Well, Monday night I slept with a flee in my sock. I woke up with so many bites I looked like walking bubble wrap. 11 bites on one foot! We finally finished decorating famiy history and it is so cute! I put up a big tree and we are putting pictures and summaries of the people we find. I put a picture or Emma and her letter to her little brother she wrote when she was 93. Also Tuesday night when we were finally in bed, my comp says “pssst comp? Tonight when you said the prayer, I heard a latina=)” It made my life.
Wednesday– Breyan came to family history. He`s a recent convert. He was an only child with just him and his mom. His mom died a couple years ago and he is 100% alone. He wrote his mother`s story and we put it on the tree. It was so beautiful! We got hamburgers that night which was the best. We saw our landlord outside and she seemed kinda sad so I asked her if she was ok and she started going off about her sick mother and how she doesn`t want to take care of her anymore and prays for her to die. She said it with such a calm sweet voice I wasn`t sure if i was understanding correclty haahaha my companion confirmed it when we finally got in the house hahaha I was like omgoodnessssss.
Thursday– OK. Let me just explain our house. We have mold. Wedont have a fridge ormicroçwave or sink or anything so milk goes bad in a day because it`s so hot and my bread was rock hard in a day. We don`t have hot water and the water is so cold I have to shower at a90degree angle so my hairdoesnt touch my back becauseIm like suffocating of the cold. Not to mention there are so many bugs in there I feel like I have paparazzi. The most exciting thing of that day is that I received a card from my mom and from theKonolds which was the funniest, greatest thing ever.Ive read them both like ten times.
Friday– We realized its 85 degrees in the house. We went to Marcona!!! It is the area of the elderes that is like an hour away. I got so homesick when I saw the beach!!! The way there was just a drive through nothing! It was just desert. I am 100% sure it is where Lehi dwelt in his tent. The way back was crazy. Our seat in the van wasnt even connected so we kept moving back and forth and then he couldnt put the seat down and we had to climb over them in our skirts. When we got out the driver asked me where I was from and I told him Cuba. As we walked away he yelled “BYE CUBA!!!”
AHHH! I am out of time so I can`t write more! Im sorry! I wanted to share spiritual experiences but we`re going to make pizzas so I cant!!
I love you all!!
Nothing happened this week! We´re trying to figure everything out with teaching our area and teaching family history. Here are some ugly pictures of me!! I love you guys!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
