August 18, 2014

Hola familia.  This past week was good.  I am starting to understand a lot more but still have a long way to go.  Anyway, your questions. In members houses we eat rice with potatoes and a little meat or fish.  Or soups which those are hard to choke down sometimes.  Bunch of chicken bunch of rice.  In the room we eat a lot of oreos with milk.  I taught Elder Apaza how to dip the oreos in the milk with the fork.  We normally buy food at night to eat for dinner.  Or the past couple of nights I have made scrambled eggs and it was Elder Apaza´s first time eating scrambled eggs.  

We don't have a kitchen.  It's just a room and we have our beds, place to hang our clothes, a table to study at and a couple dressers.  We have a mini fridge and a microwave and a pan on top of a burner.  It's pretty cozy.  haha.  I have a bed, it is two mattresses on top of each other on top of a bed frame.  

This past week we had another baptism.  It was awesome.  And the kid (14) wanted me to do it.  So, Saturday morning, I take a step in the font and I was like ya the water isn't too bad.  Then another step.  WOW freezing.  And by freezing I mean FREEZING.  Like I am surprised that there was not ice in the water.  The kid was shaking so bad, I kind of felt bad.  But we did the baptism and after he was bearing his testimony and he said he was freezing but when he came up he felt hot, it was awesome.  Another cool experience.  This past week I said a prayer that the next day we would find a family or a family would find us that we could teach.  We were talking to this teenage girl in the street that we had contacted last week and right as we were about to leave her mom gets dropped off in a car and we talk to her and BAM she invites us back for another lesson.  God is listening to our prayers.
