What`s up! This week has been pretty crazy! On Tuesday I had an
intercambio with the zone leaders so I went into Cartagena to work. Within that intercambio, I had another with Elder Fitzgerald (I lived
with him in Alpes, my first house) because there was a baptismal
interview. It was really fun to go out and work with him and see how
much we have progressed with the language and teaching.
day it also rained a lot so it was super humid and I sweat a lot :( We had a
group planning sesh on Thursday so we all met up. While we were
there, the assistant, Elder Schwab, arrived. He is now working in my old
area of Modelo and told me that Ana and Luisa got
baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I`m sooo happy! Also Adriana and Laura are
getting ready to be baptized too!!! Super awesome news!!
Also on Friday
we had interviews with the president and we had to go to the church in
Los Alpes. As always the interviews were running late, but after we
finished Elder Schwab told us the they were heading out to Turbaco (my areaa) and
could probably take us. SO ...we got to go in the president`s car. It was
fantastic! I felt like I was back home for a brief moment with the AC.
Even more crazy was when we arrived in Turbaco because as we were
driving down the streets everyone started screaming, freaking out, and
running in the streets....The soccer game against Chile had just ended in a tie. That means that Colombia is going to World Cup!! So literally
everyone went insane, got on motorcycles and paraded through the city
screaming, honking horns, and making a lot of noise.
We were going to
leave to work, but then the power went out.... in all of Turbaco. Which
meant that everyone was even crazier, so we hurried back to the house to wait
out the night. Pretty nuts! I took a video and I`ll try to send it
to you next week.
That`s it for this week, we didn`t have that great of
lessons with people. We could never find anyone in their houses, so we
contacted a lot a lot.
I love you all! Abrazos y besos!
