Week 20: Nica Style


Hope everything is going good. We were out out power for three days. On the third day, we went and asked the lady about it and she didn't know either so she asked the people. I guess they cut our power and everything because we didn't pay the electricity but they usually give us a receipt but they didn't this time. So that's why we were out of power. All our fridge defrosted so everything we had in there was ruined which wasn't much because we live Nica style which is you never buy extra food you have to live day by day haha.

Answers for Mom: 

Weather has been fairly decent not too much rain, except of Friday where it poured really hard. We were in Valle de Jesus which is like 3 miles from our house and it was a torrential down pour all the way home. Backpack, clothes, planner, everything was just soaking wet, but other than that the weather has been decent it's less hoy when it rains so that's good too haha.

My companion Elder Spence is from Riverton, Utah. Plays soccer but is a big Utah fan so it pains me to learn USC lost to them. Now I have to eat a bite of two month old Gallo pinto from the fridge. Come on USC how ya gonna do me like that? He's been out on the mission for 17 months. When he leaves in April I'll have a year.

Typical Sunday:

We get up go pass by all parties of members and investigators starting at like 7. Yes, our members if we don't pass by them they don't come to church that takes till about 11. Then we either call Chito, a member's husband, to help us take the chairs or sometimes he likes to drink so we just have to take the chairs ourselves. We rent the chairs from a pulperia. The house we have church in is kinda far away so when we have to take them ourselves, it sucks. So til about 1 we take the chairs to the building set it up. Move around a bunch of tables, sweep up, set up all the chairs, and sacrament and such. Go have a quick lunch come back at 1:45 call everyone make sure they are coming. Church starts at 2 but no one really comes until 2:30-2:40 have that till 5, take the chairs back to the pulperia, and go send numbers.

Yes, we have to talk a lot because most of the people just wanna show up and listen and not have to do anything. This place is really needy can't do anything without the missionaries, and everyone is always asking us for money so that gets annoying.

We had a baptism for Pelon. We have been teaching him forever and he always goes to church finally we got permission to baptize him.

Hope all of you are having a great week and that everything is going well.
