"Now, That's the Power of the Mission!"
November 2, 2015
Wow, I love me
them weeks that keep flying and keep rocking!!!
So today our Mexican friend made us this weird dish that consists of
ground beef that isn’t cooked with heat but cooked with lemon juice ... so
pretty much I ate a bunch of lemon tasting raw meat. It was nasty and so we were talking and
laughing how we might end up back in the hospital and then we realized that we
went to the hospital September 15, and now it’s NOVEMBER! WOW, time flies! But really I could end up back in the
hospital ... the food was nasty. Say an
extra prayer for me, would ya?
So much has
happened and I just love it all. I can’t
tell you how many ghost stories I’ve heard this week. Mexicans really are into
their dreams and just weird stuff, especially with Day of the Dead and all. Did you know their Halloween lasts 3
days? Way too long in my opinion. That’s 3 days of us running-from-drunk-guys
too many. One thing I’ve learned about
little pueblos or little towns like Ajusco is that most people are very set in
their ways. It’s hard for them to
change. I don’t know why that is, but I’ve
met some very hard to help people while being up here. Nevertheless, I absolutely love it up
here. I can breathe and I can wake up in
the morning and see sheep right outside my window and smell the fresh poop smell
drifting through the cracked window. Really
life doesn’t get any better than this!
So that piñata
we had ... ya, we broke it. We beat it
silly and it was sooo much fun. I have a
10 min. video of it that I’d love to send home, but videos don’t send ... sad
We didn’t get
to meet with our investigator this week and he didn’t come to church. I’m pretty bummed, but there’s not a whole
lot I can do. I’ve done what I can. Now it’s up to him.
Oh, I totally
needed new shower sandals ... sooo I totally got the sickest shoes for 9
bucks!!! They are like Crocs, but better
and super stylish. I fit in here too
well. I’m pretty much Mexican.
my week for ya. Life’s going good--no
real complaints, just happiness. Now,
that’s the power of the mission!
