i'm sorry if i offended anyone by my email last week! that was really weird only getting 8 emails today.. i hope you aren't mad! sorry! my week was okay. we had that zone confernece wednesday and it was the longest day of my mission, but it was very fun.. we rode tri-rail down and had to leave the apt by 6am.i got to see lots of friends and my favorite senior couple the Hogge's and also President Lake and his wife (he is in the mission presidency). i saw i'm in a few of those pics on the blog and i dont know if you can tell or not but i'm wearing jeans.... i haven't worn jeans in over a year now. and those were not mine. Sister Lake let me borrow hers. it was weird being with the elders in normal clothes. the games and activities were really fun. and we had a super good lunch. there is this sickness going around that lots of people are going in the hosptial dehydrated.. but good thing i just got the runs pretty bad but i took some little pills and i'm all better! lately when i meet latins and they ask where i'm from i'm been telling them i'm nicaraguan, and sometimes i tell them colombian. that's where i'd be from if i could choose. so we asked the bishop awhile ago to stop dinners remember? well he said he had to pray about it and hasnt gotten back to us soo thats why he still have dinners and we had 3 again on thursday (two houses had tacos).. i went to my final appointment with dr hartog and he says i'm all better so glad that's all over with. i dont have pain or anything anymore. after i was kind of nervous but i gave him a church invite and a book of mormon pass along card. he told me he has some LDS friends and so i hope he tells them about all this, so they can share the gospel with him too! tomah broke up with us.. he says he wants to study independently, so instead of telling you about him i'll tell you about sean. last week riding bikes he was getting gas and waved at us so we went over to see who he was and he was soo friendly. he is 31 single no kids and really cool and funny. we talked for awhile and exchanged info and he's been texting us a lot. on thursday we were figuring out a time we could meet for friday and the only time that worked for both of us was friday morning, so he wanted to meet at iHop.. i asked him if he had any coupons.. and he wrote back guessing that it was sister call... well we had breakfast (he paid. it is so weird lately all these men keep taking us out to eat) and we gave him a BOM and he was texting us the rest of the weekend asking about church and when it was and where, so he came to sacrament yesterday and that was good, but i think he is more in it for us sisters than he is for Heavenly Father.. he is quite the little flirt so we have to be careful. but he is a good guy and we do want him to learn and progress. things with jordan are going so well. he went to the young single adult branch yesterday and liked it, so that is where we'll have him get baptized. not sure yet if the baptism will be saturday or sunday. but he is really excited and we took him to Kenya's baptism last saturday and he was so excited for his own. we had him in a member's home for dinner one day and that rocked. .i love when we get investigator's in members homes. it is so helpful. i am getting good at goign places without my GPS now. . and usually when that happens i get transferred so we'll see what happens in 2 weeks. we have PPIs on Wednesday. kenya is having her baby tomorrow moring, a c section. her baptism was great. i love her a lot!! at the relief society activity it was called rekindling your love for the Book of Mormon and i was in charge of the fire in the firepit.. dad you would have been so proud. i did good at it. but it was awkward when i had to get up in the middle of testimony meeting and go to the wood pile and add more wood to the fire in the middle of the circle. i felt just like dad must feel when he has to do that at girls camp. on saturday we went to see our boys at the ALF (assisted living facility) that we visit every saturday and we were talking to this man jon who always tells us that he is lonely and depressed..sometime while we were there we had to explain how we dont date while on missions and also we told him we dont have much money. at the end of the night after pondering for awhile jon said "i feel like a missionary. i have no money and no women"...maybe its not that funny to you but it was hilaruious to me. and the last story for the week happened yesterday after church, we were pulling out of the parking lot and got out to talk to a young guy who was walking down the road. his name is santos. he's from guatemala and has lived here for almost 2 years and speaks noo english. oh,. and he's 18 years old. he and i talked for a bit then he tells me that he is really into american girls.. and he wanted to know if i was married. i said no and he asked if i had a boyfriend.. i said no then explained this no dating rule..well he asked how much longer i'll be a missionary and i said 5 months and he said he can wait 5 months ahhahhaha it was like the funniest thing, we just got his info to give to the spanish elders and left. anyways.. things are just moving along here in homestead. hope you are all good and happy and healthy! take care. love you.
