WEEK 40 !!!!!!!
So, this week was rather good, and eventful. So, I can´t say we had much success with investigators this week, because we were quite busy with many other things! We had 3 meetings, 2 service projects, and- my companion struck sick! Wednesday night he arose at one in the morning and ´expelled´ all the rice, potatoes and meat we had eaten earlier that day, and he was throwing up all night! So, yes, we were trapped in the house, and I studied and drew while my companion was bed ridden all day! Egads! But, never fear, for I took care of him as a mother takes of her child, and he has recovered and is ready to work again. I never thought I´d be so happy just to be outside contacting...
And for other news, you all thought that you could have wedding fun without me right? Well, I was not left out, for I too assisted a wedding reunion! One of the members by our house just got married, and we got to go over and have a jolly moment with them. Food, dancing, and LOTS of people! It was pretty nice.
And well, it sounds as if you all are having a great time at home! 2 wedding receptions, dad´s off to see catheters in action, and Madison rocked it with her talk on Sunday! Actually, that´s coincidental because my companion and I gave talks too! I spoke about the people in Mosiah 18, and how our ward can be more unified and prosperous by following their example. (it´s way good!) And you need to tell Emily to write me a message, if you say I am to marry, then I´d like to hear from her! :)
So, Elder Bardzinski and I are still doing great, and this sectors is just slapping us silly right now. We have no investigators! Because those we contact aren´t accepting, our members aren´t giving us references, and the only references we have received have failed. So, we did a special fast (we just finished 3 hours ago) so we hope that we can get the lord´s help to start getting the mission work in our sector rolling. And my Quichua is.... coming. I´ll tell ya when I can start to make sentences, right now I just know how to say brother/sister, see you later, good afternoon, etc etc
BUT! This sector is just lovable, so I shall be sure to keep you all updated. and! I took a stop at the market today and bought some cool stuff! The photo will be attached in a separate e-mail.
Well, that is all the time I have for now, so I shall be sure to see you all later!
(PS- by the time you read my next e-mail, I SHALL BE TWO DECADES OLD!!) I´m super excited to put up all the birthday stuff!
Here are some pics of us at the wedding reception, me at a zone activity (each companionship had to drop pudding/cake stuff into his companions mouth from way up on a chair! It got in my eye, haha), (SUPER FUN) and me by the left over soda from the wedding party. Enough carbonation to scare the Lehi swim team. :)
CIAO y Tu Parishum! (quichua for until later!)
