Aug. 2- Happy August!
My wonderful Family!
I am sorry that I wasnt able to write yesterday, every first monday of the month we have a meeting with all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders of the mission, so I probably wont have much time any of the first mondays of the month:) But I learned so much and now I have a little time to write!
It was a good week! We had some fun times doing divisions right off the bat. This companionship is so funny, they are a trainer and her trainee and they are both named Hermana Gonzalez:) They are awesome missionaries and it was so fun to work with them.
Me and Hermana Gonzalez the trainee :) She is hilarious and we had a good time together.
We got a referral to visit a lady named 'Marta' this week and we found out she is part of the family that makes the famous icecream of Alpuyeca! They mix the icecream all together and put it in a metal tub and then put the metal tub in another tub that is lined with chunks of salt and ice:)
She told us that she couldnt listen to a message about Jesus christ until she was done preparing the icecream, so we offered to help get the work done faster:) It was a lot of fun. I was singing that first song of Frozen the whole time I was breaking up the ice, haha.
You cant really tell from the pic but this is taken from one of the highest points of our area:) Good thing the comvie took us all the way up and then we walked all the way down;) Our new investigator lives literally right at the top!
Look at this random tree we found.. the fruit and the flowers come straight from the trunk of the tree. That is so weird, right?
I love mangos:) This is me and Sister Demetrio, one of the hermanas in our ward:) There are about a thousand ways to eat a mango, this way is called the 'paleta' when they mount it on a stick and if you want they cover it in a lime juice and salt and chile:) Delicious.
My companion got super stressed out this week and it was pretty funny being with her. I put this post-it note on her head that said ''I am Calm'' and it seemed to help a little;)
Most of the time if we are depressed or down we just go get some cold water and it lifts our spirits right back up!
This is the last pic I have of us:) Because we got called on Saturday night and told we have special changes. I am going to stay in Alpuyeca but will be receiving a new companion:) I will have new pics and info about her in the next week:)
This is the adorable note one of the kids in primary wrote to me:) I love how they write my name 'Sualo' :D The note says ''Hello Sister Sualo, you are like a sister to me.'' and it has the best drawing of me I have ever seen, haha:)
While at the offices last night I ran into my old branch buddies! We four were in the same branch my last change and it was so fun seeing them all again! (shout out to my old comp Hna Veylupek who ALWAYS blinks;) and Dad- the white missionary next to me is Elder Stanger who is the relative of Brother misrasi:) We found out a long time ago about the connection when he told me he was part of the misrasi family:)
Anyways, I hope that everyone had a wonderful week and is ready for another great week! Thanks for all your prayers and support. I really feel it. I pray that you all are well and that you are trying everyday to come unto Christ. It can be as simple as reading a chapter in your scriptures and praying to find someone to serve. You are missionaries, too:) I love you all so much!
