Sounds like a fun family reunion, that's a nice truck Uncle Lane's got! It that looks like a good time. Mafia until 4:30 am? Wow, I guess that would explain the migraine!
For lunch we get a plate full of rice, a piece of chicken or some other meat but usually chicken, a little bit of avocado salad, and some potatoes or beans, plus some kind of juice or herbal drink that they refer to as agua (water), it also comes with soup but I'd say you could also translate it as broth because it's pure liquid. I usually order it without soup since I get overly full from the rice anyway. It is less than 2 dollars, closer to $1.50 so it's pretty cheap. Food here is really cheap like you can get a banana from a street vendor for 20 centimos which would be about 6 cents haha There are also pick up trucks full of bananas that go around with loud speakers yelling out that they're selling bananas which is weird because I haven't even seen any banana palms around here so I don't know where they get the bananas to sell haha
They said the change in the order of meetings was to get better sacrament meeting attendance but i don't know how well that will work out.
I'd shout it off the rooftops (the good word) but I think the roofs would break since they're mostly made out of bamboo sheets haha
The baptism fell through.
Yeah, my comp and I get along well. We found a really nice family that are very excited about learning more about the gospel but they have the problem of not actually being married... we were hoping to helping them to change that but we were made aware that that won't work out because the lady's mother has two different official identifications.... so now neither of her names come up in the computers so basically she doesn't officially exist! So... they can't get married until that is resolved...
We were eating on Sunday at a member's house and while they were cooking she brought us packets of an off-brand version of Ritz crackers... the name of them made my companion laugh so hard! Here's a picture of them.
To his dad:
Here the missionaries are pretty much the only ones that talk in ward council and we are told to go in the order of converts, less actives, then investigators.
No, I the package you sent has not arrived yet but the ZLs would have to get it from the mission offices first.
I hope Cody does pathways.
Did Weston really behave for 12 hours in the car or was that sarcasm?
We just found out that Elder Bednar is going to be coming soon!! The whole mission will be able to go the training he's doing! Our MP is telling us we have to be extremely disciplined when he comes and he also told us that Elder Bednar likes to do Q&A so we should be thinking about what questions we can ask him related to the work we are currently doing. I am really excited to hear him speak!
