Well this week was good. We worked hard taught a lot and got a lot of new investigators. We got rid of a lot of old investigators and this week we will have 2 baptisms so that is sweet. A guy named Pilar that we teach in English and Mauricio who has read pretty much everything the church prints. So that is sweet. He is now in alma 22. Last time we talked to him he had read all of the teachings of Joseph Feilding Smith and read most of Principles of the Gospel so that is way cool. He is a super cool investigator, especially from just choosing a house in the middle of the street to contact. That Sunday he didn’t come to church and we called him and he was just drunk as a skunk and now he has read more gospel literature than me. It is way cool to see that people can do that and change so much.
This week was good, though I can’t think of any good stories or specific stuff to share but it was a good week, went by fast. Oh, one night we went to the Pulparia to buy some Tang and some taquiritos so we had food for Sunday and the one by our house was closed so we went to another one. One of our way good friends in the ward John Keli was working there. He is like 23 and used to race motocross here. He is the son of the lady we have our lunch appointment with so we talk with him a lot and play soccer with him on p days. He gave us free Coke and little bit of cake so that was dope. We bought a ton of Manzana Tang which is way good. I’m not going to lie my diet here is terrible. I’m going to get diabetes or something haha.
We have a fridge but there is no way to cook food or anything so I’m not going to lie if I eat anything for dinner or breakfast it’s just a little bag of taquritos and some tang which is honestly terrible for me but thats really all there is. In the morning I don’t eat cause we don’t have food. Yesterday I ate a few spoonful’s of peanut butter cause someone left some in the apartment, so that was good. For lunch the lady with the restaurant feeds us so that’s chill and the food is way good, well for Nicaragua. It was just rice and some other stuff but it’s good and not kidneys haha so that’s sweet. Today she gave us rice with beans and something else I can’t remember but it was good and these little pickled peppers that where way hot and I pounded a ton of them haha. They were good but my nose was just running like crazy. For dinner we get a little bag of taquritos and Tang which is like a total of like 10 cords, like 40 cents. But yeah today I’m going to buy some Toparamen and some cereal or something to eat and just eat it dry like I did at the house for dinner so that’s a little better.
We live in like an apartment thing. It is just a long cinderblock house that is 6 houses. We have a tin roof and it is one room with like a divider for the beds. We have a curtain for the shower and toilet. It just has raised tile between the room and the shower. We have running water cold showers but it’s not too bad cause it’s so hot here anyways.
The language is good it just depends on who is talking. I can understand some people, others I have no idea. Some people, as in a lot of people, here speak like the boobonics of Spanish haha so it can be difficult they skip a ton of words and mumble a lot. haha but that is sweet.
I haven’t got any dear elders but I got grandmas post card so that was sweet. Tell her I loved it and thanks a ton and that she is super cool. I’m sure the dear elders will come too thanks a ton mom. I’ll be stoked when they come too.
well peace and love, z
