I still love our house...


This week was great.  Monday night we did FHE with some of my FAVORITE people, karlita and marina. I seriously love them.  I taught them how to roast marshmallows! They loved it and after we shared our lesson and were roastin the mallows it started to rain SUPER hard. Seriously I am pretty sure that a lightning bolt hit the house because it was SOOOO LOUD. It has been a little colder this week so that was nice. :) We visited a cute family this week and they are SUPER evangelicos, he was scolding us for wearing earrings...  and it was just so funny like he told us they are sins and things like that i have no idea. We are still working with Maria as well. She is progressing but she didnt come to church this sunday, she went to the young women activities but not church so we will see what is going on tomorrow with her, its almost her birthday woohoo. Then we are also visiting a guy named Cesar hes been receiving the lessons for a long time, and has had problems with some things but we visited him this week and he told us he hasn't had coffee in 8 days!!!!! That was soooo cool and we are really hoping he can keep progressing cause he's super pilas. :) There was also a baptism on saturday and it was good we sang in the baptism and it was really pretty. But the crowning event of this week.... DRUM ROLL... RAT IN THE ROOF! So one night we got to the house and planned and everything and were getting ready for bed, when i looked on the top of my closet thing to grab something and saw something moving, i realized it was a worm, so i got a chair and looked closer and there were like 50 worms in my stuff!!!!! well they were MAGGOTS, like from dead things!! and they were just like dripping from the ceiling like rain and me and my comp freaked out cause it was like 1030 and we needed to sleep so we got a bucket and were trying to figure out to do when the POWER went out!! We were soooo mad hahahah but it was sooo funny. So the power came back on and we were trying to figure it out again and the power left AGAIN!!! So when it finally came back on  we  stuck a paper to the ceiling so that they wouldnt fall and then we went to bed. The next day we told the guy who is over the houses about it and they went up and found this HUGE RAT, dead. It was soooo gross and smelled AWFUL! But yeah that was pretty fun. Adventures in Guatemala right?? I am lovin that mission life. :)

love you all have a great week I almost forgot it was Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving!!

So, apparently the cold has hit Peten... Yep Im still not feeling it haha. Still sweating everyday and enjoying the sun. ;) We ate some super cold watermelon the other day, and I feel like I am stuck in July for the rest of my life! But I love it. 

SO Tuesday we went to visit Diego cause he was sick, and we went there and that book of mormon he didnt want was sitting on the table RIGHT BY HIM.. so we have our suspicions that he may be reading it. We hope so at least!! Also we visited a guy that works in a store and he talked to us FOREVER about baptisms for the dead, he didnt agree with it at all!! SO we left him a pamphlet of the plan of salvation and are hoping to return and teach him more! Thursday we had reunion de distrito and it was all about the holy ghost. It was super good I always love district meetings, our DL is pretty awesome!! We are teaching a girl named Lupita and she is so darn cute she is 16 years old, and has these little cousins that are the cutest things too. AND she is keeping all her commitments!! Reading BOM, praying, we just need to get her to church with us but she likes what we teach so we will see :) Also the funny people we visited for the week were some evangelists or something but they asked us if we thought it was a sin to dance and we said well no theres limits but we can dance and they went on this rant of YOU CANT DANCE ITS OF THE WORLD AND ITS SIN and freaked out and then told us we dont have Jesus in our hearts... yeah that was pretty crazy encounter. Also we visited a family with hna and elder bake and it was an adventure, but all turned out well with the message :) we are still teaching efrain his wife is not listening anymore but he still is so we will see what happens with him. :) 

have a great week.

We visited Maria this week, she is soo great and still has a baptismal date but she changes her mind like everytime we visit her so we will see when she will finally follow through. :) She wants to and knows it is true, she just really needs to have faith. This week we visited a referral  in a brand new part of our area thats literally ALL FIELDS,so we went and she is the bomb!!  She told us their family is looking for the truth... so we planned an appt with them and I am so excited. The only bad thing is the husband is only there at night and the area where they live is super dangerous at night so we have to go with a member who has a car and unfortunately there are only 1 or 2 members that have cars so we will have to rely on them.  Also we visited a less active member and he is like crazy against the church now, it's so sad to see a testimony has gone to that, he went through the temple with his wife and everything but we will do everything we can to help him. We also found a woman this week named Blanca. I LOVE HER. I am really hoping she can progress cause she is soo cool and my comp had a dream about her before the mission hahaha super crazy. That's all for this week I will try to be better at writing stuff down.. LOVE YOU ALL :)

This week was good. And it went by super fast, time seriously goes by so fast here!

Monday we went to NDH with Leti and her husband Diego who is not a member... but he pays tithing goes to church and everything he's basically a member without the baptism. We visit them a lot and he told us Sunday that he needed to talk to us. So we went to the NDH Monday and we were so excited that he'd say he wants to baptize, but he told us he does not want the lessons anymore... WE WERE CRUSHED.  We went back and visited him again and he said we can still visit him. So we are going to see what happens with him but honestly that was super hard. We also visited Efrain and Heidi and we are hoping they'll progress, they are super awesome! Efrain went to the baptism with us the other day so we will see. My birthday didn't feel like a birthday in the mission we visited poeple and had our same routine, my comp bought a cake so that was very sweet :) She also poured this powder stuff on my head when i woke up hahah and i was like what is this and she said its powder for your feet and i thought oh my dad would be GAGGING right now hahahahah :) it was funny but I guess  its a latino tradition. So dad when i get home watch out. ;) We also visited a guy and we have a bapsitmal date with him his name is Cesar but he really likes his coffee so we will help him with that but he is pilas. :) This week we also had divisions and I stayed in my area with Hna Ball it was fun to be with her we had a good time visiting people and everyone saw us and thought we were crazy cause both of us are super white GRINGAS hahah :) also this week I taught an enlgish class and I loved it. It is starting to cool down a little so thats nice i can finally sleep with socks on :) something funny today at pizza hut my comp spilled grape soda ALL over my skirt that was great hahaha ;) loving the mission life!!! have a great week!!:)
