Well, today we had an EPIC
zone activity. Went to visit an indigenous tribe, ´´Los Sachilas´´. It
was awesome...and an epic ride on top of a truck through the jungle to
get there. Danced to some tribal drums/flutes/rain shaker/xylophone
jams.....it was epic. But it ate up our day....
The work is good. Meeting new people every day and contacting more than ever...finding phase baby!!!
comp, Elder F, got changed to the Quito North Mission. Changed as in
re-assigned. I am still here in Santo Domingo and am with Elder V,
from Argentina. He is a homie!! Huge futbolista and also played rugby
before the mish...we are about to get to work!!! (physically...and
It was a great week. Elder F and I
had an awesome week together and it was sad to see him go but the Lord
works in mysterious ways! Just gotta trust and obey! Also, grampa Manuel
got baptized on Saturday. Showed up 3 hours early...haha epic.
Hey all! So, starting last week we
have 30 minutes less of email time. Which is fine, cause turns out we
used to have the more time than any other mission in the whole South
America North East Area.... But anyways, starting next week I am going
to try to write the group email first, and make it a little more
detailed to make up for not being able to respond to some of you right
morning I had a mini-missionary. I really didnt want to lose 3.5 days
in my sector, so I called President Monday and got permission to be
comps with a 18 year old homie who is leaving for the mission in
Guatemala in 20 days. It was sweet working with him and giving him so
advice. We got some SOLID work done, too.
morning I headed to Quito (deja vu) to pick up my new comp! He is Elder
F from Guayaquil, Ecuador! He is a great missionary and I am
really excited for another chance to train/learn/grow. We are excited to
get to work here in Santo Domingo!!
Thursday night we got
back, and since then have had a few solid days out in the streets.
Almost had a crazy last minute baptism yesterday, a super old dude left
today to get heart surgery and wanted to get baptized (had been
preparing for the following week). President decided we should give him a
blessing and hope that he makes it out of his heart surgery and will be
able to be baptzed in a few months. Sounds good to me!! Was a pretty
fun/hectic sunday morning, though.
Today was a super mellow pday. Just got organized and relaxed. And got a haircut....like every other week, jaja! #mishlife
and on Saturday we helped at a Stake Blood Drive for a few hours, then
went to a reitrement home and sung to some old folks, it was great. I
love old people. Highlight was watching a super old/bent over black man
from Esmeraldas (the coast/land of good food and good music and good
dance) went harrrrrd on the dance floor. Este viejito sabe
Well, I love you!! Have a great week! Until next time...
Buddy who arrived with my comp and lived in one of Elder Cuv´s first wards....#<3
Sorry to be really short again...but am way
short on time due to having to take care of changes. Speaking of
changes. I will be staying here in the coast in Santo Domingo and will
be training again...heading in to Quito Tuesday/Wednesday to go pick up
my new companion! Super excited for another chance to train and get
trained/taught from my new comp!! Hopefully I will be able to help him a
bit... 3rd ones the charm, right...?
comp Elder V is going to Quito, and will be comps with someone
from his same group....Ballin! I miss Quito, but will be heading back 2
more times this changes...Quito misses me too. ;)
That one time I killed my zone leaders. (both went home this week... RIP!!)
work went well. We had a great week. We were in our sector all 7 days
and it was EPIC! Got some serious work pumped out and I am super excited
for the potential success we can have this change.
I love the mish. And I love you all. Go COUGS!! LETS GO.
Bday of Luis Angel. (leaves to Guatemala in 25 days, will be my comp for the next 2 days)
