Alright this week was pretty sweet!

On Monday we had Family home evening with the A. Family. They are the best we played games, ate candy, and had a lesson on tithing. Way fun!!

Tuesday we had district meeting in the morning and then had lunch at 12 steps of Rome. All you can eat pizza and pasta. Except the pizza's weren't like american pizza's hah they were like a cracker with cheese on it. It was still way good and only 99 pesos (like 2 bucks). Our first lesson that day was with a woman and her daughter at the church. It went way well! She was way receptive and had a huge desire to learn about the Book of Mormon. This lady has a ton of faith, she used to be rich, but then she realized that something was missing in her life, so she prayed to be poor. She got what she wished for hah, but we can tell she is way ready for the gospel in her life. Last week we went to the hospital because one of the member's little girl was sick. We went to the hospital and gave her a blessing, and when we visited her this day she was all better. The mom told us that right after we left the hospital the other day she started to feel better. She said that the doctors thought she took some magical medical herb or something hah. When we went back to the apartment that day a member brought some dunkin doughnuts and Balut. First time eating Balut! Wasn't as weird tasting as I thought it was going to be, but the texture was gross. I could taste the cartilage, the beak, and the feathers of the baby duck. It tasted like a normal egg tho.

Wednesday we were way busy. We taught 7 lessons all around our area.

Thursday we taught some recent converts who are struggling with a lot of trials in their lives. Sometimes it's way sad to see such great people have such big trials, but I know that it'll be for their good in the end, and they're going to come out stronger if they endure it right.

Friday we did service at a members house. We took out weeds in the front of their house. When doing that it felt like I was taking a shower with the amount of sweat dripping down my body. Well worth it though. It was another way busy day, but it's nice that everyday is completely different than the one before.

Saturday we were getting punted everywhere. A lot of our lessons got canceled so we went around tracting. It was cool though cause we found a really sweet family with potential. We also ran into a crazy lady that had the most random questions. I got to eat chicken intestines for the first time. Not too bad if they are drenched in barbecue sauce.

Yesterday was stake conference and we went with the A. Family. It was a blast. I feel like they enjoyed it. We had a couple of appointments that night, but we had to give a paper to one of the leaders in the ward and spent most of the night trying to find his house. Addresses here suck.. They don't help at all haha. We found the house eventually, but they weren't even home. We just left the paper on the gate and then went to a members house.

Today did laba (laundry) By hand... (still trying to get used to this) and played football!! Way fun! One of the Elder's got a package from home with a football, so we got all the missionaries in our area and played. Finally something American :) It was a good way to get stress out after a long week!

Everythings great! Can't wait till Halloween!!
