Week 19: "You're like a mom!"
Hey there my lovely family and friends!
What can I say, I guess I am meant to be a mother... It was funny because in our meeting this week, Elder Vail randomly says it really loud about me. He´s one of the new missionaries to la misión.
Our electricity went out again but this time for the whole building. I could not help but laugh. Thankfully, the power came back on before we came home. (I was extremely concerned for our ice cream we had in the freezer. Priorities, right?) We gave a tour of the church to one of our investigators and it was awesome! I love giving tours because you can always feel the spirit so strong in the church. She at first did not want to come because she claimed she was too busy with other things. We asked her for only 20 minutes to show her the chapel and ended up being there for over an hour and a half.
On Wednesday, we do not have as much time for appointments but we were able to pack in 7 appointments today! Oof! Boy were we running to each of our appointments!
I had given money to another hermana in my zone to buy me a cheap speaker to listen to music during the mornings and evenings. Never before have I been so grateful for music. It is really calming to have music. I am the English tutor for my district and it was rough for my first lesson but the elders loved it. We are learning hymns in English. Later during the day, we took a taxi back from our mamita and in talking to the taxi driver, he gave us his information to pass on to some elders and gave us the ride for free. He was such a nice taxi driver.
We had a revision of our apartment to make sure we were keeping it clean and... we passed! Of course... We chatted with a bunch of people and set tons of appointments.
One of the counselors in the bishopric decided to come up behind me in the street and pretend to rob me. I was scared to be honest. He thinks he is so funny. Later in the evening we had an appointment with one of our investigators and the bishop. It was an awesome lesson.
Sacrament meeting was so funny because a sister got up and while giving her talk about the importance of familias, one by one, all of her small children came up and were clinging to her skirt. It was a hilarious sight. We set up even more appointments for this week with the members of the ward, so it will be a packed week!
Happy early Thanksgiving! Here´s a picture of a turkey we had attack us this past week. I think he knows that Thanksgiving is coming... ;) We have interviews with Pres. Richardson tomorrow! Bum bum bummmm! Wish me luck! Have a great week and hope to hear from you soon!
