I've been a bit sick this week, so I didn't really have a chance to write out a nice letter, so please excuse the briefness of the bullet points that follow.
Highlights of the week:
- We got to go the Temple with our branch. We spent the entire day there! We got to watch some baptisms and even do an endowment session. Afterwards, we even got to go out to eat at Wendy's (which is ironically considered a fancy restaurant here). On our way back to Ocoa, our guagua (bus) popped a tire and we were stuck on the side of the highway for a little while next to a mango mall (a long line of tables piled high with mangoes). We made it back all right though - it was an adventure.
- I picked up a tarantula because the elders didn't believe me when I said they didn't scare me. Probably wasn't the best idea, but it didn't bite.
- We got to help one of our investigators make a rug out of an old rice sack by sticking strips of pink fabric through it with a nail and then tying them into knots.
- We went to Parra for church on Sunday morning. It's so far away from the pueblo (town) that they have their own little meeting up there. We had to leave the house at 7am to make it up the mountain in time for sacrament meeting, which is held in someone's house.
Until next week,
