Well this week we had transfers, but nothing really happened haha! I'm still here with Elder Monroy and everyone in my house is still the same as well,, It should be pretty good. And well just so ya know nothing super crazy happened this week haha,, The Semana Santa was pretty talked up, but if anything it was just a little more Salsa Dance than usual.. And something called Habichuela con Dulce.. Which is like this soup ish thing of beans that the people here make.. And its sweet.. haha! I know it sounds pretty weird, but its actually really good. And it's a tradition here to make it during the Semana Santa,, and just about every house we entered we got some habichuela con dulce YUM.
This week was a little bit tougher to find people to teach.. Pretty much everyone, Members and Investigators were off in Santiago or the Beach, so our week consisted of walking a bunch and sweating while Catholic mobs marched down the street singing hah! Something interesting happened today though.. We were walking to get my Comps hair cut and all of a sudden hear a bit of a rucus from the barber shop. There were people yelling at eachother and pointing, all I heard was a bunch of cussing, didn't really know at the time what the conversation was.. So when we entered the conversation died a bit and it was pretty quiet.. Some guy who looked like a gay dominican Steven Tyler was cutting my companions hair, when suddenly someone had the nerve to bring up the original Spider Man and say it was better than the new Amazing Spider man.. Then the fire was re lit. The other guy cutting hair, with razor in hand starts waving it around and saying that "Its cooler that spider man gets his powers from a wierd spider". Then the guy whose hair he's cutting gets out of the chair, with his little cape blanket thing around his neck still , he got super offended and said But its more logical that spider man invents his little spider shooter thing!! I was just sitting there enjoying the show.
This week we put down a couple of baptism dates for our next Noche Blanca which is the 24th.. put them with C and P.. We didn't have the chance to talk to Y and J this week because they were out in Santiago,, But we definitly have plans to Invite them to baptism this next week.. They are so prepared, i just hope everything goes well with them this week! But I'll keep you guys informed..
So the pics for this week, I've got a couple of the zone. We also made some colored easter eggs (provided by my parents) as well theres one pic of me blowing on a fire.. A bunch of gangsters were trying to make a fire and were fanning it with this huge pillow thing and asked me to fan,, They were astonished when i used the blow technique, they even took a picture lol.. so i told them to take one with my camera too..
Well I hope things are going great for everyone back home, hope ya had a Merry Easter, and enjoy General Conference!
Talk to ya Soon, Elder Beard
