so tell me why the days are just FLYING by? it's ridiculous. like i really only have 162 days left. 713 days is what i had at the beginning, now I am down to 162? where did the other 551 days go? I am baffled. the sisters I knew in the MTC go home IN 8 DAYS. like it's crazy that the time has completely just disappeared.
So it was a long last week though...... Let's hit up a recap ---------->
MONDAY -> Preparation Day. Yup.
TUESDAY -> Last day with Elder Labrum. I don't even remember what we did. I think we chilled at the Branch President's house for dinner and then we went to mutual with them. We said bye.... well Labrum did, to Francisco.
WEDNESDAY -> TRANSFERS. It was so nice seeing all my homies again. I had been waiting so long for transfers and it FINALLY came. Love my homies Schoeneman and Latu. It had been TOO LONG. So excited for Christmas conference in 10 days. All day P A R T Y. I am still in Elkhart and my new companion is Elder Weese. We served in White River together so I already know him. He just got finished being trained by my homeboy Elder Markward. I am still the District Leader here in Elkhart. The new Elder's in the branch are Elder Triance and Baird (my son I trained hahaha). So 3 elders I served with in White River all came up here. It's all their first time transferring, hahaha.
Thursday -> So Thursday we taught Luis Vasquez. I will talk about him more on my Sunday summary. We also found these 2 new Hondurians. They were pretty cool. Well, one seemed interested and the other didn't make a single sound and just stared at us so I am not sure. Hahaha. Had some bangin' Pozole with the Hiltons.
Friday -> PSYCHO ALERT. SO, we were knocking in some apartments and we knocked this door and waited for an answer and then some guy walks in the building and the far stairs and it was door and he starts SCREAMING and cussing at us and we are like "Uhhh ok bye" and being the brat I am I STUPIDLY yelled "You're a great person!" and we walked outside and left. As we are walking outside, he always exits with a dresser that he is putting in the dumpster and he yells "IF YOU WERE SERVANTS OF GOD YOU WOULD HAVE HELPED ME CARRY THIS" and I was like "Well you never asked, all you did was cuss at us" and he FLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPS into a rage and was like "I HAVEN'T CUSSED AT ALL UNTIL NOW" and then enters an INSANE flurry of rage and is screaming and so I just walk away to another building and Weese stays outside the door and is yelling over at him that he isn't a nice person HAHA and so the guy eventually goes back inside and we leave the building and start running for our car that was parked a few minutes away. As we are running we see the guy come outside and hop on his motorbike and starts driving toward us!!!!! We get around a building and lose him and drive away and we look back and he is driving around a different parking lot lost and looking for us. Needless to say, HE IS PSYCHO.
Also, we rang the Salvation Army bells for an hour! Hna. Romero came to visit us too with her daughter Abi, and Maria Alarcon. I had fun saying stupid stuff like "Welcome to the Bahamas" or completely butchering the Walmart slogan (Save Money. Live Better..... [I THINK]) as people walked in and then singing as people left.
Also, Hna. Romero called me that night SCARED TO DEATH that she had ghosts in her house and wanted my expert ghost fighting advice (????). She is HILARIOUS. Love her.
Saturday -> LOL Saturday was so lame. We taught the lamest dang people that are about as interested in the Gospel as the keyboard I am typing this on. Ya. BUT we did have lunch with my main homie Hna. Romero and that was sick. She made me Milanesas and Rice because she knows I love it and she loves me. flawless. Something funny though! So this lady was SO UNINTERESTED that we taught so I was like "Elder Weese you can teach her if you want...." and so he does and at the end he goes to talk about prayer and he opens the pamphlet to this chick praying and shows it to the woman and she asks "Es la virgen?" aka (IS THAT THE VIRGIN MARY) and he replies "Si." (YES) and I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE it. I couldn't contain myself and laughed for the next 5 minutes straight until I was just like CAN WE END WITH A PRAYER and we got out of there.
Sunday -> Chilled with Alarcons, Martinez, Romero, and Fernandez. Sunday FUNDAY.
But about that Luis guy real quick -> Inactive guy we happened to tract into. Baptized 33 years ago in Mexico. CAME TO CHURCH YESTERDAY, and loved it. Sent us a text with a lot of smiley faces after church and was super thankful and I was super thankful too. COOL GUY.
OK, love you all! Keep it real my friends!
