May 14, 2012

This week has been crazy. We finally got a couple married on thursday and on friday I got to baptize them!! It was awesome. First baptisms in mexico! It was also great to talk to the family on mothers day. It was nice to see that the u.s. still exists. The world is completely different here. We almost got trampled by a heard of sheep that belongs to my stake president, wake up to roosters and dogs, and get freaking awesome food. And we get to live next to a volcano that looks like a scene from land before time. The members always give us agua, which is water with sugar and real fruit juice (like guava, mango, peach, lemon, etc) it is always really good. And the sweet bread here is really good too. It only costs like 2 or 3 pesos (like twenty cents). Its also been really nice to not have the language barrier. I can understand everything in lessons, and almost everything in all the other places, so that has been really nice. The culture is very different, but the people are really friendly. We also had one of our towns go crazy this week. They celebrated their patron saint this week  and we got almost nothing done there. We did get to see one of their parades go by, which was fun. they may not have a lot but they know how to go crazy and have fun. We also got to play soccer again on p-day. Give me two years and I will be pro. Its been especially crazy because the championship for the regional teams is coming up. My comp was ticked when his team lost, but we still have fun with it. We have an awesome family of 5 that we found, and we are really excited to teach them. Also, I apologize for lack of spelling and punctuation, the spanish keyboard still throws me off. Love you all, cuidense mucho!
