I got the package, thanks a ton, the sourpatch kids and the twix were bomb, good call, and the jerky too, mexicans had never tasted jerky and it blew all their minds. I liked the drawing, have you been practicing? i liked that their wasnt a note on it or anything, just random scriblles. Thanks for the protein powder too, my new companion is from peru and he is swole, hopefully he teaches me his ways and the powder can help. I think so, who knows. That cambio is in the rearview so were just going to go forward with it and get back on track. This week elder ramirez asked me my favorite last name and i said sommer, so he wrote elder sommer on tape and put it on his plaque and was elder sommer, the new elder to the zone and i had to lead him and train him and he acted really stupid and it was really funny and really frustrating, but it helped a lot to get me ready to show the area to elder pacheco. This week i learned if the senora is cooking in clay pots you are about to get some crazy delicious food. We ate some bomb mole this week. This week we had a contacting activity with the other district and all the young women from the district, the young women sang and we contacted, this guy was setting up some stuff to sell and was setting up speakers, so we asked him if he could wait qa little before playing music, and he offered that we could put our hymns on his speakers, which was way neat. and after, they set up a tiangis and set up a huge dance and music in the centro, because thats how mexico works, so you couldnt hear our hymns so all the young women went out and helped us contact, it was sweet. We met this familia who seem like members, and they used to be active but they fell away because of some apostasy going on, but they were never baptized, so we have been visiting them and they are way awesdome, they already know about the church and they seem like members. they are so nice, and they have a special sun thats 5 who cant talk but he is so funny. I bought an ipoid this week, in case youre wondering why i spent 1800 pesos on my card. On friday we saw a dog fight, it was wild. We were visiting a less active and eating breakfast and we hear all this barking and squealing like someone was dying, so we went outside and this pitbull had a little terrier by the head and was shaking it like a rag doll and it was bleeding everywhere, we threw rocks at the pitbull until it dropped it but we were too late, i felt like i was on the animal planet. Also, we had some pretty wild partys this week. the mafia is doing...spring cleaning, so we have to be inside at 6, which is awful because the way the moon and the tides and the time of month and the 46th parallel, a wormhole appears in our apartment which takes us to the surface of the sun. It is so hot. But anyways, because we had to be inside at 6 some other elders came over, because being in your house that long is way boring. In our boredom elder ramirez taught me how to machete and i macheted all the hill down below our house and it looks way nice. Our colony is on a hill so the houses are all just built on top of each other and you get around on stairs, theyre called favelas, people say theyre like the favelas of brazil, i havent looked it up, cuz im not allowed, but look up favelas of brasil and i think youll get a good idea of where we live. But were at teh bottom of the favelas so theres some hill below our house and some trees, we have a little yard thing, and i macheted it real nice. Then we played baseball with the machete and almonds, but i was the only one who could hit them, and the mexicans were all way impressed with my american baseball prowess, and then i showed them how you put your forehead on a broomstick and spin to get dizzy and then race, so we did that too. Then the night of transfers some elders from the outlying pueblos came to stay the night so they would be closer to the busstation because they had to leave at 3 in the morning. And since they had to leave at 3 we had an all nighter, we played uno and they told us funny stories of their area, because pueblos are always full of apostasy. Then we playerd hide and seek in our 1 room apartment, the seeker had to close his eyes and he had a stick to get around like a blind person and to feel around for us. it was so fun. I also finished reading jesus the christ last night, so i have officially read the entire missionary library and the book of mormon 4 times since i have been out. Elder pacheco my new companion is way sweet, he is district leader and is ready to work, i cant wait. it is honestly going to be like were opening an area because we wasted so much time last transfer we dont have tons of investigators, but im excited to get working.
