This week was really awesome, funny and sad.
Elder Castorena was sent down to work with English elders on friday in Garden City, UT. There are 3 hispanic families that are ready to recieve the Gospel, but no one to teach them. President told us in his house, “Elder, you have 8 weeks to baptize them, then I’m pulling you back up.” It was really sad to see him go because of how well the three of us got along.
We found some new people to teach as well, and we organized our area book, so I think this next week, we will see a lot of success!
I have one funny story:
We were going to see our recent convert Santiago Wed night at about 9-9:30pm when we see someone smoking pot on the corner of the street. hahaha classic Pocatello. We pulled over our white subaru which kind of looks like a cop car. We count down from tres, dos, uno, vamos! We get out of the car really fast, and this guy thinks we are the FBI and starts yelling and getting all defensive hahaha. We then tell him who we are, and he jsut starts talking about random crap like… “I moved OUT!!…. I died yesterday, and now I’s here smoking pot, I mean… what the hell is going on?” It was so funny. Just your typical “old town resident”.
Also, during language study, I tried to explain the different pronunciations of beach and a female dog, and sheet and slang for poop to Elder Castorena.
It was a really good week, and I hope you all had one as well!
This week has been so awesome! I cannot tell you all how great it is to have 2 native speaking companions. Wow, I really have learned a lot of Spanish, and the teaching has been really good too.
We had zone training this week, and our companionship was picked to do the 15min practice lesson. We did a really good job, and it was so fun to see all of my friends from the old zone/district again.
We found some new people to teach last night. We are really excited for this upcoming week. A lot of new people and service projects coming up!
I wish i could send videos , but it has been really really fun. Elder Castorena has a guitar that he brought, and it is nice to play it a little once and a while, but sometimes it is a distraction. Today, Elder Castorena wrote a song the other morning called “La Reina” or the queen hahahaha. That was during personal study, probably not the best use of time.
Apparently Sister Crandall’s daughter knows Marilla and Valora in Kaysville. Small world, I think there is a pic on Facebook. Also, Sister Crandall is a seamstress and is making some of my fat ties skinny for me hahaha. She’s the best.
I cant wait to read all of your emails, and thanks for all of the support!
