We went to the mountain, finally…..
Hey everybody, We finally got to go over to Pico Bonito this p day, and that is why I am so late writing you today, but I am going to try to be quick with my emails so that I can be able to call you later too. It was super fun and I have a TON of pictures from it, so I won’t say too much, but will let you look at all the pictures instead.
We had splits the other day, and we are going to have splits again tomorrow all day long. It was weird being with another missionary, and I am not going to lie, I wasn’t a big fan of it. I got put with a fresh greenie right out of the MTC, who didn’t communicate well with me, and made everything his way. I was awakened to the fact that I am not always going to have awesome companions, and that despite the faults we have had, up until now, I have had some truly awesome companions out here.
We lost the baptism we had set for this week, because the mom is not ready to let the daughter be baptized yet. She does not believe she is old enough or ready to make decisions like that yet, so we will not be seeing this baptism anytime soon. But, we have been receiving a ton of new people who are prepared to receive us, and all of them are progressing. It is amazing to see the Lord’s hand work in our lives when we are willing to look for it, and when we are humble enough to ask for it.
I am going to get the box you all sent from home to me this week, as we have a companionship that has to go to the mission office this week. They are going to bring it back to their area, and when we finish splits I will have it in my hands. I think it all worked out for the better, and I truly have learned a lot about how important patience is and that it pays off when we are truly patient to the core.
Okay new foods that I tried this week (careful reading these, not a fan myself):A cow’s udder (tastes and smells like milk)chicken Feet (tastes and basically is super glue with oil and fat in it)
Photos this week:The mouse that was in our house that I killed with my bare hands (broke the broom doing it, I am quite proud to say that I have a little bit of mom in me for this haha), a hen with her 21 babies (what a mom), the cow udder, the mother and baby healthy and in their home from my story last week, chicken feet, the most pathetically small tacos I have seen in my life, and pictures from Pico Bonito
I love you all. Have a great week and remember to stay diligent in being both patient and humble!
