Well guys,, everythings been good this week,, although, as im sure you can see in the pictures its been a little bit crazy! Just about every day this week we had some kind of activity or meeting.. Starting off this week we had a meeting with president Corbitt and the Stake presidency,, i sent a pic of them. They are some really great guys! They work super hard with the missionaries and actually want to personally leave and teach with us! Things have been going well so far,, there are a few oppositions, but that comes with all good things, but everything has been really well.. We´ve been preparing 3 families to be baptized right now. Familia Lorenzo(who should be getting married this week),, Filimeno (who is the wife of a less active and yes they also need to be married), Yahayra and her son, and shes a single mom, so we´re all good.. Yahayra is awesome! she actually reminds me a lot of Raysa(who was baptized in June) and Raysa has been kicking butt lately! She´s goes to every activity, is like best friends with all of the members, and it looks like she´s been a member for years!! It´s gonna be super hard to leave these guys, but at least ill be able to come back to their sealing next june! Anyways,, as well you´ll see in the pics that it rained this week.. A lot! The flood pictures were actually in a different area too,, So ill tell ya the story,, first we were at a service project at a members house cleaning up some trash and stuff, when it suddenly started to rain.. And ill tell ya what, this isnt like utah rain,, the rain drops are literally the size of golf balls and they come down hard!! so right during this service, we find out Elder Palma won´t be able to make it to a scheduled baptismal interview for his district, so the sisters needed us to come.. So we did haha! Don´t let the trash bag fool ya, We got absolutely soaked! I just put it on afterwards for style haha! But it was worth it because we got to interview Ormedo, who was a super cool guy, super ready to be baptized! This happened and my shoes are still drying off til this day haha! Anyways the next day we went out and it was still raining like crazy,, and holy cow the freakiest thing happened,, we were coming down the stairs of the house when out of nowhere there was a huge flash of blinding light and the loudest thunder I´ve ever heard,, Elder Affleck and I both fell over and our ears were ringing! A stinking lightning bolt struck 20 feet away from us in a tropical storm! It freaked us out a little bit, but it was super cool! I couldn´t believe how strong that thing was haha, everyone was freaking out! Anyways later that night, we had a little church activity that night called un viaje maravilloso, where we go through a little play thing of the plan of salvation,, it was super cool, they asked us to be the angeles, so thats why we´re all dressed up in white,, and they guy standing in between us in the pic where we´re on each others sholders, is the awesomest bishop in the mission! His main focus is Mission Work, and he does a good job, how much better could it get haha!! A lot of things have been happening lately, i´m probably forgetting a few, but i think this about sums it up,, hope everyone has an awesome week and that nobody gets struck by tropic lightning,, hablamos pronto queridos amigos!
