TUESDAY- We had our District meeting in Ledesma, ran a few errands, then got back to Yuto. Nothing too special. At the end of the night we celebrated the birtday of a girl in our ward who is in the mission
THURSDAY- We had a really good study session, and other than 1 solid lesson at the end of the night, nothing too special.
FRIDAY- Left to look for inactive priesthood holders. At the end of the night I was super frustrated with my Spanish. Right when I think im starting to speak good and really understand, something happens/or somebody says they cant understand a word I say. Its really frustrating too feel like you just taught a really solid lesson, or bore a really solid testimony, to have the person laugh and say that they ¨really couldnt understand a word you said¨ I study, I practice, and I apply what I learn, but its still not coming like I want it to.... UGH
SATURDAY- Our 1:30 lunch appointment fell at 1:15. (Thanks for the heads up) Luckily, we had money on our cards. Not so funny story, I forgot to take my card out of the ATM, luckily I had already taken out my $1800 pesos... In the afternoon, only 1 of our 4 appointments were home or available to talk.. We were teaching a family, and they showed us their new bird. The poor guy jumped off of the girls finger and tried to fly away, but fell straigt down like a brick. I couldn´t stop laughing. It was fantastic.
SUNDAY- We had a record of 3 dogs in attendance. A little girl named Abril, (shes 4) gave the closing prayer and it was the cutest thing ever. She said ¨Dear Heavenly Father, bless the food, the Elders, my family, the kids, Maties (her brother), my family, Maties, the kids......... and my family. In the name of Jesus Christ, AmenÂ¨ HAHAHAHA YES! Then we went to a birthday party of the kids of a family that is investgating the church. They combined recieved a total of 20 pairs of underware as gifts... Then we went to a Less Active, Recent Convert, whose mom isn´t a member, and talked about they wanted from our visits and if they truely thought that this church was true, It was a solid lesson. Then finished the night with some Matte Cocido and tossing around the ol´ foam football. Also during lunch we found out that Elder L. Tom Perry died.
TODAY- Chill day relaxing and doing laundry, had some geeso for lunch! Now there are about 4 little kids in the Internet place running around, bugging us, and trying to read my english letters over my shoulder.
