Letter from 10/12/15
So my Birthday was so fun! The day before these two Hermanas from the ward (young women) left after the last Saturday session of conference and then came back without us knowing. Then all of a sudden they tell us to pause the Priesthood Session (we were in the church) so that we could come in to another room. I walk in and there was this huge Torta De Manjar with bebidas y Galletas! (see picture) It was so Awesome! They sing a different happy birthday by the way but other than that it is the same. I had a blast! Then the next day E. Yson made me a Frac Frita Cake (fried fracs). It was the best!
So this week was pretty crazy! We had Cambios (exchanges) and we got a new Elder here in Laja se llama Elder Chidester from Henderson Nevada. This dude is so crazy! We have had so much fun this week getting to know each other and talking about his experience out on the mission (he´s got 20 months out here).
This week we had a lot of citas (appointments) fall but we are still trucking along. I had a few times along the way that were pretty difficult. I got sick one day, then got a bunch of viruses on my memory card the next day, and then totally failed in a couple lessons with investigators. It was bad, but I was able to come out strong from it. I received a blessing from my comp and almost immediately felt the comfort from my Savior. You really do learn to come close to Christ in a completely different way out here. I love it so much and would not ask for anything else.
Other than that the week was pretty chill. This week we have a ton of awesome plans and we are so excited to get going on them! I will let you all know how it goes! Hope you all have a great week!!!
