The Funnest Week
hii everyone! how are you- sorry for the scattered emails, i will try to make more sense today. this past week has been the funnest of my mission.. before i start a few random things. i need my passport. its in my dresser by my bed. it has a coach cover on it. please send sometime soon. i think we are going to open cuba. we need to teach the people there. please pray specifaclly for cuba to open and to soften the hearts of the leaders there. you can see that day of service we did on youtube, i think i'm in some of the videos or things from the news. i dont know the exact address but but i heard one is at ereport.com then go to miami service. we are allowed to call mothers day on our cell phones so i can call anytime. i will try to call just after 4 my time and so you will be out of church. but i will be sure to call no earlier than 4 my time, but it will be between 4-6 sorry i dont have an exact time. so i did exchanges this week. SO SO fun. i went first with sister salazar in kendall. her comp is sister olson. mom-we had fun talking about how you and her mom are friends on MM. they are both such cute girls. we ate at cheesecake factory then i got to meet poeple there in kendall. they are english sisters so most of our appntments were in english. that was good i understood everything that was going on! then i ate this polish food for dinner and have diaherra every day since.. sorry if that is TMI for yall. but ya sister sal and i got along SO well and i love her to death. she is from mexico city. she is going home at the end of this transfer though and she already extended. coming back to hialeah we got lost and kind of drove to the keys and to miami beach and all these places for like 3 hours.. it was sweet..but we seriously were lost. it was only supposed to be a 24 hr exchange but ended up being 48. then on fri i got to go to hollywood and be compainons with a girl sister moore. we are the only sisters in te mish that graduated 06, everyone else is older. sister moore is an ASL sister so i learned a lot about the ASL program that day. we got to do appointments over the TV with her video phone. then we visited an investigator girl that day and the first thing she said was that she had just written her suicide note. so we talked with this girl for 2 hours. i will tell the story on a tape, its way too long for email. it turns out we had to call the police and they were taking her to lockdown for 72 hrs. i do not need that sears recpet anymore unless you already sent it-my thing works fine. i got my translator and i loove it thank you so much for sending it!! that can count as my birthday present. so it says specifally in the bible that a fast has to be 24 hours. isnt that weird. i always just do like 18 or whatever 2 meals are but no in spanish in the back dictionary part it says 24. it doesnt say that in english though. weird huh. on sat morn we had to be at the church at 6 am. there was a relief society activitiy at 6 am. and guess what we did. we all sat outside and bore our testimonies as the sun came up. haha it was cool but who does that! we would never do that in utah! i was kind of cranky and tired that morning. i have neever been so happy to wake up at 6:30 before. yesterday in sacrament there was a baby blessing it was 8 days old and sooo cute but the family isnt members and has never had missionaries so we are teaching them this week. and the second the bishop sat down after bearing his testimony the whole congregation went up! it was like an army! EVERYONE bore their testimony it was really cool! so our main investigator Guillermo didn't come to church and we didnt know why. we went adn saw him last night he said it was cause earlier in the week a member had gone to visit him and told him he needed all white for his baptism. G realized yesterday morning he didnt have white underwear and he thought his baptism was that afternoon. so he skipped church to buy some breifs. hahah well the baptism is next sunday after church and i'm really excited. when we taught him how to pray he did something really funny-i'll tell you on the tape. when i got the pic of owen i didnt even know that was him! i was like who is this kid.. he is such a cutie. i got the moab postcard thanks for that as well! i love you all so much and look forward to talking to you on sunday!!! have a good week and remember how much i love and apprciate all your mighty prayers every morning!! oxoxoxo hermana meryl call
