|The majority of my zone at pizza today! some are missing though. they didn't wanna make the 45 min drive from yuguate|
HI!! aye aye aye wont lie. this has been a SUPER long week! man alive. its been hard! its been even hotter which i did not think was possible, and a lot of our investigators didn't come to church. we should of had like 6 of them, but only 2 came. both are young, one, margarita, is being baptized on the 21st and I'm doing it!! and then the next Saturday the younger brother of one of the members is being baptized, his name is Manuel. so that's good at least. but from no on we should have about one baptism a week from now on. so that's good at least! but man, i dunno. its just been hard.
|FIND THE GRINGO! this was a noche de rancho on Wednesday with a bunch of members!|
So last week on....Thursday i think, we had interviews! it was awesome. our mission pres is amazing. super super super smart, but runs the mission like a business. check him out. name is Juan Almonte i think. he is one of the more loaded people in the DR. never been to the states and owns business´there! but he is awesome. he said something that scared me though...at first when i said the prayer he said i have good Spanish, really good pronunciation and such, but i needed to get better at hearing it and responding. so when my comp went in he told him that he needs to talk to me more in Spanish because i was going to learn really fast, and be a big leader. .... ahhhh. i don't want to be a big leader hahaha. not at all!!! dad, your story about training after 3 months scared the crap out of me. you don't understand how fast these people talk. some of the Latinos from Mexico cant understand the Dominicans. so so fast and they straight up don't say their ´s´. ever. ¿como tu estas? is ¿como tu ta? and such. they just drop half the word.... not cool. oh, and yes, the milk sure does come in little boxes! i sure wont miss this milk when i get home! that's for sure! aye aye aye. nor will i miss studying by candlelight every single night without a fan or cold water in the fridge because the power has been gone for 6 hours. luckily we have water always. granted its not potable, but at least i don't have to take bucket showers this transfer haha. but the ZLs have power always, since they live right next to the hospital, except Saturday morning it goes out. but they loose water alot. so its super hit and miss on what resources you are gonna get here haha.
So a few random things. if you ever want another ¨roach¨, come here. i saw like 3 of those in the states, but man those little civics are everywhere here! just like the roach! its super crazy. man alive i miss that car!
I will for sure miss every single person here adoring me. they loooove Americans. honestly, i could date any girl i wanted here hahahahahaha. not like i would for the next two years though haha. but they love white boys! during a cita, a little girl started to pet my hair haha. not many of the Americans here have blonde hair! so im even more of a rarity! awesome. hahaha. oh, and crazy. so the girl I'm baptizing, margarita, her aunt, Theadora, was taught by sister missionaries, one of them, Hermana evens, lives on 1539 e 2100 south in salt lake! just down the street! so that was super cool to find out!
|Top of my roof again!|
