May 25, 2015

Hey everyone!
The highs and lows of the mission are so real! haha this week was super good in a lot of aspects but hard in a lot of aspects too! we had a baptism programmed for saturday that fell through because she didn't come to church yesterday :( super frustrating and disappointing, we haven't been able to find her the last few days and are super confused because she was progressing so good! but we are praying that we will be able to figure it out in the next couple of days! 

Also super sad story - when I first got here we were teaching a young girl, she became uninterested but through her we found her sister and this week we went to visit her sister and she told us that her little sister has been missing for the last few weeks and nobody has any idea where she went. we are so sad for this family and praying that they will be able to find her soon! the police here are soo useless. they do absolutely nothing to help anyone! 

But other than that I am super good here and learning so much - especially on avoiding drunk men and also what food to dread when I see because I automatically know I will be on the toilet all night hahaha but there is no escaping anything the pensionistas make! But I am super happy here and know there is nowhere else I need to be! 

This picture is Elsa and her daughter Lisandra - this smile was the biggest we have seen in months from her! Her store is so sad but we are doing all we can to help her!

Also learned how to make empanadas this week!
