Week 12

Week 12!! Wow it's flyin bye!  My first transfers are this week!!!  My trainer goes home.  I'm actually pretty bummed.  He was an awesome trainer!!  Even if he was a Trunky mess!  Kidding he was pretty good most the time.  Now I am going to get another comp named Elder Orton.  And guess what He leaves in 5 weeks... Awesome... What is president trying to do to me??  And this transfer is only 5 weeks because President is going home in 6 so we will be getting a new mission president here pretty soon.  Fun stuff.  So this week was nuts.  It was cool cuz we had a lot of lessons with less actives.  Most people know the church is true but its hard to dedicate them to do stuff because they are lazy... but when we have the spirit everything becomes super fun!  Which is why we need it!  So this last week we found out what our branch pres loves. Chick fil A!!1  I am slowly getting addicted to it!  You eat it with chick fil a sauce and its sooo good!!!  So when I was street contacting we talked to this guy and I asked him his favorite food.  He said pupusas.  I asked him if he liked chick fil a..  He goes... ohhhhh me encanta Chicky fil A!!  I would eat that stuff for breakfast lunch and dinner and he literally goes on for 20 min on how much he loves chicky fil A sauce. It was so funny.  Didn't get a return appointment tho cuz he was on his way to get chicky fil A with his novio.... great...Oh then we had dinner at this ladys house.  Her name is Otillia.  She's a great cook.  I'll send you some pics of the sweet food we ate!!  Oh so I saved my comps life this week!  We were just in our appartment complex and we knock on this door and are waiting for them to come answer when I heard this super weird hissing noise.  I look down and am like oh FREAK!! There is this huge snake right by my comps leg and it's getting up in the position to strike!  My comp is completely oblivious and I yell to him and push him out of the way.  He's like what? Oh shoot!!!!  This huge black snake almost bit him  Don't know what kind it is, but it was nuts!!  Oh another story, so we contacted these other latinos and they started speaking super fast to me and just repeating, just to try and confuse me.  They thought they were sooo funny..  Then I realized that I had met this guy 3 days before and he was like ya come over Sunday and you can teach us so I was like sweet!  Ya! He just starts busting up laughing and all his friends are going hysterical...  my comp steps in and is like no no no.  Apparently I had just agreed to go drink with them on Sunday... whoops! haha  I love not speakin spanish!  Great week tho!  Fun adventures.  Last week with my trainer.  Life is good.  I am so thankful for all the things I have been given.  Out here, people don't have very much.  One kid named Gerardo that we visit has to sleep on the floor cuz the bed bugs ate his bed.  Then there are like 2 or 3 families living in these tiny houses that work 24/7 just to try and afford the rent... Sad stuff but that's why we are here.  To help them!  And in helping them it's such a good feeling.  I love missionary work!  Thank you to everyone back home for all you do!  Have a great week!
