Hello world! How is everyone doing?
My week was pretty dang crazy... So here it goes!
So first, we always work in this barrio that's SUPER sketch - but it's cool because I'm pretty much friends with every sketchy person. Well lots of sketchy stuff happened this week.
|The Dog - like him but white. His name is Bruno too...haha ha ha.|
Later, some mocoso (booger) came up by us after trying to fight with another guy. He came up to me & asked me if I had a phone like he was going to take it. I looked him straight in the eyes (I had to look down haha) and told him no. He walked away shooting me a sneer and I asked why he pulled that face. He came back and in my face lifted up his shirt to show something that looked like a gun wrapped in a shirt. My comp came over too and what is cool is that we both received an impression from the Spirit that it was only an airsoft gun and nothing would happen. We basically told him that he could be doing better things. He walked away all big and tough and Elder Fuentes and I just laughed to ourselves. We are protected here, and I've never felt in danger (except for the dog - almost had to change my pants haha).
Well, we've had some awesome stuff happen to us this week too. Some guy in the street whistled to us and called us over to talk - we rolled our eyes because we thought it'd be another boracho. Well after talking to him, we found that received the missionaries in the states and wanted to receive us here. He said he wants to show us to his family and read the Book of Mormon and everything. THIS DUDE IS GOLD - my jaw dropped because in almost 17 months of my mission, nothing like this has ever happened. It's really a miracle and we're going to go visit him today. Pretty stoked :)
Shoutout to Jocelyne Morales because she's cool and she speaks Spanish. Haha
Things are good here too. I'm loving it! The food is starting to take a toll on my stomach so I'm taking it really easy with fats and stuff - lots of veggies and fruits and oatmeal and eggs - GOOD STUFF. And, my package came - I'm going to grab it on Wednesday. Thanks MOM you da best :)
Gracias por todo el apoyo de todos ustedes! Les amo! Cuidense mucho!
Pura Vida y la Iglesia es verdadera!
