Taco Surprise!

so this week i have some things that were kinda funny. 

I will just have to start with the most funny thing that happened. Well.... i'm not really sure if you could say it was funny or just plain not smart. So me and my comp we were finishin up a day down here in the land of tacos and undercooked meat and we thought to ourselves.... man we gots some good hunger right now. and right in that moment we passed this freakin sketchy taco truck :D and i thought to my self... that is just amazing!!! you just don't see a taco truck every day of your life. and me and my comp went and bought some "white girls" (gringas) which are so freakin delicious. and the salsa that this man put on this gringas was freakin amazing! and we thought we had won the lottery because not only had we just discovered this new location where we can buy this amazing little piece of food. but it also fed the beast that was inside of our stomaches :D and all of this joy came back to attack us the next day. Like my comp said... la comida entró bien. y después... salió bien mal. the food went in good and then... left really bad.. because me and my comp woke up the next day and that is when all the joy and when this wonderful discovery of the night before became a nightmare. because me and my comp were so extremely sick that we could not even leave our beds. and well.. i don't really want to express much more of how much joyful fun was that day but all i have to say is that a good old spicy salsa of habanero might peak a little bit and taste good on the way down but... as it comes up... goodness gracious. it just hurts :D so after that day we were able to get our selves on our feet and  got back down to the work load. so yeah thats just about what had happened this week. 

but the other story that i had was wellp.. kind of funny as well. so... for the last little bit i have had an ingrown toenail. and i had been going to this doctor near our house for so many many many months trying to get it taken care of when one of our members found out and saw my toe and told me that it looked absolutely horrible. and i told them that the doctor that i have been going to has been telling me every week that it is getting better. and that is when this man kind of made fun of me. and said. .. well... if that looks better i would have wanted to see it when it was "bad". and so he took me and my comp to a foot doctor  to have her check it out. and when i took off my sock she was just very very shocked of how bad my toe looked. and she asked me... how long have you had this like this? and when the member dude chirped in and said. well... he says that its getting better. and the foot doctor just laughed and said the same thing that the man told me in his house. and finally the lady took out the rest of the ingrown toenail and i have  been healing very nicely since then :D:D:D sometimes the right dr makes all the difference, at least I am hoping it does:D:D

i still haven't met the president and his wife officially:D:D i am hoping to soon cuz this mission has affected me big time and not in a positive kinda way all the time:D:D you said the new pres and his wife seem positive and it would be nice cuz it would be like being at home:D:D you just don't know what you got til you don't have it no more:D:D my new definition of home:D:D peace:D:D

New Mission President

Okey smokey. Sometimes you think change is going to be hard and yet when you meet change it is surprisingly better than you ever imagined.  Could it really be possible that my new mission president is COOL.  I could tell he we the minute he walked in with his wife.  The peace they brought into the room made me think everything was going to be ok.  He is soo cool and she is so fun.  I never thought i would say that about a mission president.  I was sorry our time with them turned out to be so short:D:D   So probably the second coolest and the most fun thing this week that happened would have to be on Saturday.  Because Saturdays all we do from the time that we go work to the time that we go and eat lunch is teach English classes. First off we head to the church to teach some people that come by to learn for free and this week was awesome because there is this lady and her son that come and they are just so much of a joy to teach. And the last 2 weeks that I have taught English classes they were not there. And so this week was freaking awesome because no one came but these two :D so we just had a blast learning English and them making fun of my Spanish and all that good jazz :D and then we head over to this other English place and they invite us to do a club every week with people who have been studying English for a couple of years .  And this class I creaking love as well because they already speak English and all we do is talk to them and have just a good ol jolly time talking about soccer and work and stuff like that. (But in all the classes before they had not let us talk about our religion.) so the last class we had talked about the World Cup and lots of people went to the director and asked him if the two white boys can do a club on their religion. And so this week he let us talk about religion. And I do have to say. Man teaching in English is SO much more fun than in Spanish. (Maybe because it's just something different out of the overly repetitious things we do errr day) we started our our class to see if the people had any questions and that is where we went they had many many many questions. And at the end of it all they told us that they want to got visit the church and have a guided visit but in English. And we were like HECK YEAH that would be awesome! So we planned it out and for the next club we are going to try and take them to the church and teach them a bit more. :D so that was a pretty awesome thing that we did this last Saturday:D

Splish Splash?

This week was a pretty good week. To start off. My comp and I were walking in the rain like normal. And this time it was raining a whole lot. And we had to head to the church for an interview of another investigator of some other elders. When we got there did what needed to be done and then for the end of the day we had to walk all the way back to our house. I wasn't complaining in the slightest I find that walking in the rain really makes the day a WHOLE lot better.  So we are just strolling along my comp and I and like normal trying to throw each other in a puddle so they get soaked. And we finally arrive to... Well I think you could almost call it a highway. And to go to the church and to come back we always have to cross this road that is always packed of cars commin by. (I personally like to think of it like a little game of frogger) but this time was very very different because my comp went down the road a little but more and I was just thinking"what a crazy little man why are you going over there when here is the best place to cross?" And there was actually something that I had not paid enough attention to. Because there was a really really big puddle In front of me and I really didn't see how deep it actually was. and you might be thinking that I stepped in the puddle and got my knees wet, right? Hahaha wrong. I was thinking to myself...  "Right after this car I'm going to cross. " and right as the car passed... That huge puddle of water that was in the street suddenly was up and in my face and had drenched me from head to toe. And right after this moment my comp was just laughing up a storm and that is when I realized that i was going to walk down the road a little bit more so that we could cross with out getting more drenched than I already was. So I can honestly say that puddle water In Mexico... Does not smell or is very clean water to put all on your clothes. So probably stay away from the whole Mexico puddle water.  

Another thing that happened would have to be pretty a good experience would be making friends with some broham that works in un puesto de carnitas its like a taco stand but they sell all part of the pig. and this last week as we have made ourselves better and better friends with him he has started asking us if we have tried somethings and pretty much all of the things that are there in the taco stand i really have not tried. and ya know i thought that a good taco consisted of: some meat, some pig skin, and some bacon. but oh little did i know when he started to give us a little bit of kidney (i hope i never have to eat that again) and some NANA which i still don't know really what it is... it just had a weird texture and with a good salsa. MMM don't even get me started. but we have made friends with this man and we believe that he is going to progress really slow but ya know not everyone is going to be ready in the 4 weeks that we set like some people say :D but ya know we are doing the work of the Lord and not the work of man. 

and.... hm... we do have some of our investigators that are progressing we are trying to help a man to get divorced so that he can get married and baptize his son because that would be pretty cool to really help a whole family start the path to being sealed in the temple and having them continue in the path from which they can be not only a family here in the earth but forever so that is one thing that we are really pushing for right now. 

oh and i am going to send this picture that i also sent in another email that is of an elder in my district. we were coming back from the church and while i was paying for the ride he went back into the back and just sat like a man of success and i just thought to myself dang if there is a face of success it sure would darn be that one. so how could one pass up a moment like that to take a picture. and this is the picture that left out of this moment so that was pretty good if you are askin me. 

Haha so... That is pretty much everything awesome that happened this week:):) we did a ton of contacting this last week and not one of the accepted us and a whole bunch of other mission joy:)
