|the sisters before transfers last week (tall white girl problems.)|
SO THIS WEEK(and last week since i didnt get to write a complete letter)
|Me in orange paint, the sander, and the RM|
we did divisions theWe had transfers before last, and hermana norton (our sister trainer who went home ) and i went up to calacali. we found a family the first door we knocked and they accepted a baptismal date, but have been avoiding us since. (a very normal occurance) the daughters names is narly. like gnarly. i thought that was sweet. , but hermana lopez and i both are staying in mitad del mundo. the other sisters from the ward both left (one went home and one got transfered) and the sent in two new sisters. one of them (hermana velasquez) is training, so we were in a trio until when the new sister got here ( hermana doza) by the time came around hermana doza was totally depressed and is going to talk to president today to try and go home. sooo we might be in a trio again, but we will see.
we also are teaching a family with a dad of 19 years and a mom of 21 years...they already have a 4 year old and an 2 year old (which means he was 15 and she was 17) but they are super cool. the two year old is named jeangrey, after the lady from x-men. latinos really like wahtever english sounding name they can find.

(they have 20+ types of fruit, half of which i have never heard of)
im still deciding what we should do with the money (Editor's note: money from the Chapel Hill ward Relief Society for her to use to help needy folks in her area instead of trying to send her something for Christmas). im thinking about spending a little bit of it for hermana lopez.i dont think were going to do anything for thanksgiving, but we will see. its weird to think its november. it still feels like july here.
shes the only member in her family and her family hasnt written her in like 4 months...so i might do something for her. also i might pay for a few marriages for poor families who want to get baptized but dont have the money to get married. anyways ill let you know.
