Today I woke up with what seems to be the stomach flu, or some kind of stomach virus...yum! I'm sitting here writing to you pretty nauseous (resistiendo las ganas de vomitar) [resisting the urge to ...yeah that]. ¡Quiero mi mama! hahaha But anyway, I know I´ll be fine and in good shape in no time at all. :) This trio thing has been pretty rocking! I love being with Hna Arellano and Hna Parker! They are the best! We all get along super well and spend the whole day laughing our heads off, and it´s even worse in the house, because Hna Nappa and Hna Nokes are crazy! I am living with the highest number of gringas that I have in my whole mission! Which would be 3 and a half (Hna Nokes, Hna Parker, and I, and the half is Hna Nappa, she rocks english!) Now Hna Arellano is learning english (a la fuerza jajaja)! [by force] I am so happy and I feel so blessed to be with all of them! They really are the greatest, and it´s the greatest combination of sisters that I could have ever asked for. It´s been especially funny because Hna Parker has been saying that Heavenly Father and Pres. Warne are "reeeeally funny" because Hna Parker was in the zone next door, Tupahue 2, and last tranfer when the cambios were coming up she kept telling me I was going to leave and bet me that I was going to leave and I always told her "NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! It wouuld be TERRIBLE to change sectors NOW, when I´ve only got three weeks left." and THEN she got put with me and my comp in our sector! HA-HA!! She was wrong.
This week was kind of a slow one, we spent more time contacting and looking for less actives than teaching lessons, and that´s always tough, but being in a trio really helped because we all keep each other pumped up.
This week is Diana´s baptism!! We have everything planned out and she is going to have her interview on Wednesday. We are all super excited! And we are hoping, fasting, and praying that Tania can get baptized next week, she already has a testimony and knows baptism is important, but she doesn't feel prepared and she is waiting for the answer that she should do it right now, the thing is she is TOTALLY ready, so we have some plans to help her realize that. Once she realizes that, her parents just have to sign the permission form and she´s ready to go!
This week on Sunday, Melissa Campos´s son, Fransico (aka Panchito) finally got his baby blessing (after a year and a half), they hadn´t done it before because his dad prohibited it, BUT he has been coming to church for three weeks now, DESPITE the fact that Melissa´s dad has a restraining order on him, I guess they are trying to patch things up because her dad was the one who invited him to church last week, pretty much giving him permission to break the restraining order (Fransico - Panchito´s dad - tried to fight with Melissa's dad one time). This week Fransisco was able to attend the baby blessing and at the end he stood up and left really fast, and we thought, uh oh he got mad, but then Melissa told us later that that wasn´t that case, that he had actually gotten choked up and started crying! Score! lol Hopefully something good with come out of all of this. :)
Other than that nothing much is going on here, todo esta ¡bien en el vecindario (all is good in the neighborhood).
Love you guys lots and lots! You all are the BEST! I expect EVERYONE (yes, I mean e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e.) in our immediate family to write me next week and to make it GOOD!
LOVE YOU TONS,
