Well we got the call last night and sure enough I have changes... my tradition lives on. I have had a new comp every change (very strange). Who knows were I will go or who will be my next comp. A little nervous but all so exciting at the same time. When I came this area was dead and now leaving they should have a baptism this Sunday and 6 baptisms here this next month, so I feel good with what we have done here.
This last week we were also able to do some service (love doing service!). Wednesday morning we went to the church and helped scrub down all of the chairs with the bishop and his family. Saturday morning as a district we went and painted what is going to be our new house (or I guess now the new house of this area). I have painted a lot of houses now on my mission too. No one else I have talked to has painted a house (#blessedwithservice).
One night returned home dead tired and hungry but we did not have any food in the house... as I just opened the freezer to see if maybe there was anything, I found two frozen chicken patties (kinda like chicken nuggets but bigger). Who knows how long they were there in the freezer (at least 3 months) but I decided my hunger was greater than the punishment that could follow. The package said fully cooked and eat within 6 months. They were also frozen so I thought it would be ok. I also remembered though that we had lost power for 2 days a month or two ago so they had probably dethawed during this time. Once again I thought it did not matter as my hunger was too great. So I ate them and they were delicious! The best part is I did not even get sick! The following night we were walking home in front of a panadería (bread shop) and there was a dog laying in front of the store. Did not think anything of it as there are stray dogs everywhere, but as I walked by the dog it jumped up and went to bite my ankle... luckily it just got my pants but now I have a hole in my pants that I have to get repaired. It is not too bad and should only cost like Q10 or $1 to repair it. This week was great and had two great blessings ;). Doing fantastic, I am healthy, Spanish is coming along, and of course I am having the best day of my life...
a quote I like from our mission president that I thought I would share... "Love more, Judge less"
Having the best day of his life,
