Yes, I lost my umbrella! :( It stinks, but oh well. It's been cold, hot, rainy and even hotter this week. It's wild!!!! Our convert is doing great, and we're having a lot better investigators now, and a lot more. Our numbers were horrible, but we've been seeing miracles in our area. The coolest is a recent convert of ours, Romina, is 16 and she is the only member in her family, and her parents haven't been letting her go to church because she needs to study for the finals. So we decided to teach her about charity, especially for her parents, so she put it to use and could come to church this weekend!!!!
We are definitely getting lunch everyday, menos this Sunday, but thats ok. Our DoM should do it, but we've been doing it lately. Just going around after sacrament and asking everyone we can.
It is super awesome that I'm the only English speaker in the house, but occasionally it's annoying when I can't understand anything and it's been a couple of headaches, but oh well....But really I want a comp that doesn't speak English my whole mission if that's possible, just so I can be pro when I come home and need to learn English otra vez.
The mate sets are super cool down here, they're pretty expensive, but there are some that are super cool!!!! I could buy you one and send it to you if you want....
The dogs are so annoying!!! It's sad that I've seen so many dead dogs, but what can you expect when there's like 10,000 in one little city...
Elder Pin definitely taught me a lot, he's incredible and he only has like 5 changes in the mission... He just taught me how to love the people and work with urgency and just to trust in the lord! My comp goes home on Dec 19 and I'm not to upset. I'm actually excited. He's a little trunkie, his minds not in the mission, and he used to be a zone leader so I feel like he feels better than most missionaries and we're having our problems right now, but we're getting a lot better! I would be fine leaving or staying, I want to experience as much of Uruguay as I can but I'm fine either way. E' Pins lookin out for me and he heard that the ZL's want me to stay, but he heard that I'm leaving. I have no idea. But he's making sure that my comp is un capo so I can continue to learn how to be the best possible. I signed my papers the other day to stay here. We had a zone wide change Friday and I was with an E' de my district E' Allen. we did a good job together so that was good.
Saturday we started to fast after a little lunch and it was horrible!!! It was by far the hottest day of my mission. Then Sunday when we ended the fast I was super sick. I think I was dehydrated, but it's all better now. I'm not gonna lie, it's a little hard knowing I won't be home for Christmas, but it's awesome being here. Tiring but awesome!!!
That's super good Brooklyn is fine, but I'll keep praying for Liberty and I can have the District pray for her too!!! It's super awesome though that Cam keeps doing great! It's good to hear my letters are helping people and that my family is still as crazy as ever and gonna bring 30 suitcases on an airplane..... I'm gonna need the new address when you get there. Oh and for future reference, I hear the best way to send packages is through US post service, "Ayuda Familiar" and maybe a picture of Jesus on the package. It's super good to hear from you and a love you guys a ton!!!
