okay so yesterday we went to the mercado and I PLACED MY FIRST TWO COPIES OF THE BOOK OF MORMON!!! one was to this vendor who may or may not have given us a fake number haha and the other to this family who had the cutest three kids. the mom wasnt really talking or smiling at the beginning but when we talked to her kids she lightened up and smiled at us. it was so cute!! and yeah. we got their address and phone number. it was cool because i actually got to be a real missionary rather than teach my fake investiagtors. it reminds me why im here which is always good. plus it was so cute to see how excited the elders were because they are usually the tough guys but they were so happy. it was great! the city was fun, we got to see this 3d map of guatemala so that was pretty cool. apparently i have more chance of being in the city in my mission and the ohter part is desert but we will see. less than two weeks until im finally in the field!!! i bought a soccer jersey (because im so good at soccer haha) and so im now the stereotypical missionary and its great. i hope i get a companion who is nice and teaches me how to play soccer becasue it actually is pretty fun to play.
so there isnt a ton to tell. not a lot has been happening here really. the ohter day these adorable primary kids came to visit and there was one who was 10 and had his fake little tag on and was like shaking all our hands and acting like an adult and it was the cutest thing. im excited to meet all the kids in the ward because the sisters will propbably have to teach some classes so yay!
on sundays we do changes with the hermanas here. like nortes go with latinas and last sunday was cool because i thought my girl hated me but we actually talked and i think she liked me this time haha. she asked me to sign her missionary journal so that was cute. but shes gone now...speaking of which i am now a viejo!! meaning i know everything....hahaha....good joke. but we like to pretend.
so an elder in my district got sick one morning and didnt know how to take medicine so he took SIX 600 milligram ibuprofeuns...the nurse in our district was not happy to say the least. luckily i had all those snacks from grandma diane and i gave him those so we think hes okay...so far so good. but let her know her snacks saved a life haha. the elders here do tie trading and im so jealous. we all know i love ties and there are so many cool ones. the elders are so lucky. and we cant really trade anything like that which is sad but ohhhh whale.
the other day i think our teacher knew we were getting stir crazy here so she took us to the bball courts and let us play line tag or pacman and let me assure that it is a lot harder to run modestlly in a skirt than it looks haha. that is for sure.
last sunday was probably one of the best days that ive had here. i just felt the spirit so much and we watched this video on Christ and it was so powerful. there were hardly any words. mostly jut a video of snippets of His life but like when they got to the atonement i looked at all the hnas and everyone like couldnt watch it. we were all bawling. its just so incredible what He did for us and it kills me that people have the ability to do something so awful to their Saviior. and like now, there are so many people who just dont understand Him or what Hwe did and its so sad and the video really made me remember the full prupose of me being here. to bring them to Christ.
oh funny story. so our ceiling leaked and it was like ayellow color so there was this bucket in our room and i sware it was pee...and it leaked on my suticase....exciting stuff haha, i know. and we found out it legit couldve been pee because the boys bathrooms all backed up and flooded the same day it leaked haha.
today we went driving to the immigration place to renew our tourist visa and the guy that drove us had to hold up the rearview mirror when he talked to us. needless to say i am more than grateful i dont have a driving mission.
