Hola Querido Familia Mio,jijiji! That's all the Spanish i'll throw at you today... hopefully :) Well this week was fun, with lots to do, Lots of people to see and far away places to go. We got some new training at the beginning of this week. So now we do plans de asistencia for church and all these steps to help people realize the importance of going to church. we were doing this before but now we do a Vancuna (vaccine) that's from Moroni 7. Good things come from God and Bad things come from the Devil... What is church? This helps people realize that church is the most important thing they could be doing on Sunday! It's pretty cool.
-I gave my first machete (serious speaking) with an investigator. Ful poder! haha
-I'm starting to like fish! yikas!!! What am i to do???

ANOTHER WEEK IN SANTA ROSA!
Querido Familia Mia,Pues, everything is normal here in the middle of the globe. This week i had my first real sickness!!! WOO (I'm a real missionary now)! I woke up in the morning with a stomach ache but i was all "it'll pass" but then we went Planeamiento semenal and it grew a little... then we had lunch and it was a little worse... then we went to Estero Medina to do some visits and i couldn't even WALK! Yeah! So i tell my companion "voy a morir![i am going to die] Llamar los lideres porfa!!!"[call the leaders] so shes on the phone with Elder osorio and says hey we are going to the apartment, my companion doesn't feel very good. So i yell "Elder Osorio VOY A MORIR" and he just starts laughing!!! haha (its all good! he is my pata ((super good friend)). So we go to the apartment and I'm just laying on the bed dying. It was soo weird though because it was just pain, no other symptoms whatsoever! So yeah after calling the enfermeras [nurse] and checking my temp.3 times, a nap and another call to the enfermeras, everything was still the same. The elders call and say "don't leave! we're coming by the apartment!" ...like I'm going to go anywhere... So they come by, go and buy my pastillas (pills) and then give me a blessing and and like 30 minutes later i was fit as a fiddle! So moral of the story... I'm not going to die and the sacerdocio [priesthood] works!!!
in other news, We had two baptisms this week! yihee! One of a kids is named Luis. He is super super smart and remembers everything like the second you teach it to him. He was sooo excited to get baptized, and it was a little sad because his parents didn't come to support him in his decision (but he had 3 cousins come and watch so that was awesome!) but he had elder thompson baptize him and when we met him at the church he says to elder thompson in super awful english "I'm here for my baptism!!!" ah! so cute!
The other is Douglas and he is super pilas too. We've been teaching him for about a month now and his mom is super awesome and supportive BUT shes not married and her man is Ateo and doesn't believe in marriage or something like that so she cant get baptized :(
So now Santa Rosa 2 has two new members! And this week we are going to try to do a lot of reactivating. So pray for the menos activos here in Santa Rosa because we´re coming to find them!
I love you all!!!
