So this week we had to go to Juigalpa again because every other change we have interviews with the president. We had to go to Juigalpa so he didn’t have to come out here. The interviews went well. We left on Monday and came back on Wednesday. It’s tricky to have to leave your area so much but God blesses us so it works out.
On Monday before we left a member made us sea turtle rondon. It was good. Rondon is like meat cooked in coconut. Here in Blue fields they eat sea turtle, which is funny because when I was on the other coast in Rivas they freaked out about eating sea turtle. Everywhere it was posted that it’s illegal to eat sea turtle and how there is a big fine for killing and eating sea turtles. But here in Blue Fields I don’t know if it’s still illegal or not or if they just don’t care because it is pretty common. They are always selling it in the street and they sell the shells too. They are big. They are cool animals and rather tasty but the poor guys are probably endangered because of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua.
Last week I wrote about how we got an oven. I think that God just loves us and wanted us to have an oven because for one, no one has toaster ovens. Some people have the stove with the oven. They never use the oven haha. But some people have it if they are better off but I’ve almost never seen toaster ovens. They are expensive so it was incredible that they even had one and they said that the thermostat was broken so that’s why they were throwing it out. We took it and figured that we would have to pay some guy bucks to fix it but it now works perfectly. It regulates its temperature just fine. It’s super cool. I have only cooked baked potatoes one night but boy were they super good, way good. I was stoked. I love potatoes. They are way good just sometimes here we get like boiled potatoes but I love potatoes. They’re good. I’ll start baking them more often because it’s easy. Just when I get home I put it in there, shower and stuff then get it out and eat the potato. I don’t even have to do anything.
Also this week we had a baptism of Greybin. It went well. He is cool. We’ll have some more baptisms next week.
And don’t worry about me and my stomach problems. I’m a missionary so I’m doing good. I just took a ton of Pepto Bismal and now I’m all good. I am also using my filter bottle so don’t worry.
Peace and Love,
