Your emails are always just what I need to hear. Its good to know that you are all doing well! Things here are just as interesting as always, haha oh Ecuador...What am I gonna do with you...
This week went by really quick, which is good cause not much happened. I did have a really cool expirience however! Me and Hermana Zarate met awomen awhile back named Sonia, and we taught here the restauracion and she wasnt really receptive, didnt pay attention, and everytime we tried to find her after that lesson she wasnt there, she was ¨busy¨, or she would even turn off her music and lights and pretend to not be home. (Which happens a lot, haha) but me and my companion decided that if she didnt accept us one more time then it was going to be time to leave her so we could focus on other people. So we go to her house, knock, and by some miracle she answered the door! Before we could say anything she said ¨Come on in¨ I was FREAKING OUT haha, the lesson we taught was on dia de reposo and it was awesome. BUT THE MIRACLE DOESNT STOP THERE! She came to church! WITH her boyfriend too! God works in funny ways, but we took that as a sign that we need to keep working with her.
My feet are finally used to walking around so much. I am gonna have some really ugly feet by the time I get home though, haha but I dont care. I am just happy they dont hurt anymore.
Also, I am so tired of drinking Soda its crazy. Freaking every meal people give us cola. And every lesson they give us , what? MORE COLA haha and its rude not to drink it so my stomache is just gonna explode from all the bubbles.
My companion is trying to learn English haha and so far the only phrases she has learned from me (by example) are What in the World? Freakin Dogs, Danggit, and I need to pee! haha... So I guess I need to widen my vocabulary.
Speaking of dogs, I got chased by a stupid little Chiuahuah today... Jess wouldve died from laughter ¨Hey everyone, lets watch the stupid gringa run down the street from a tiny little dog¨
I love you all! And hope all is well!
p.s. I got your letters!
