So this week is not counted in my top 10 weeks of the mission. We spent a good bunch of time in Montería in the clinic doing x-rays and other health things were awry this week. In the midst of all this, my fan overheated on Wednesday so the heat I was feeling in the house hiked up like a million degrees. Finally when I got a new fan on Friday, we put it together, I pointed it towards my desk, turned it on, and went and studied on Elder Sanchez´s desk and Elder Pezo walked in and was like what is this. They remind me of it everytime the fan is over blowing at my desk and I´m somewhere else and apparently it happens alot. Actually, apparently I only use my fan when I´m sleeping.
A member provided cena [Sunday] for us on domingo [Sunday] and we spent the time cuenting [telling] him of the ridiculous and hilarious stuff that´s passing between the four of us in the house and the members were laughing like mad.
Hey, something cool is that Alain was baptized this week. Something not cool is that his dad is in the hospital and Alain went there after the baptism and couldn´t leave him and therefore was not confirmed yesterday. So, that was unfortunate and so we´re working with him so he can be there next Sunday. Also, Nuvia didn´t come to church due to a visit from a friend and so she doesn´t complete the requirement for be baptized and so she will not be baptized on Saturday.
Alain's Baptism, me in the orange tie
This morning, I realized how ridiculously fast the time is passing, that we´re already in week 4 of the cambio and that I completed 6 months last week and all. Hey, how did Senior Ditch day go? Also, yay for new Alena Moore, and for Cammie Linford.
A really cool thing that happens here in this time of year, is that about a bajillion of mangos are ripe. We´ve got about 100 in the house and we can´t even eat them all. I´m eating like 2-3 mangos everyday, but somehow I still haven´t found a good or clean way to eat them. I always need to wash my arms and head afterwards so I try not to eat them while proselyting.
Oh, the story behind the picture with the puppy.
So, the girl that Elder Sanchez and Elder Hernandez baptized this week is named Karina. Her dog died the same day as her baptism. The elders decided to passivly search for a new white dog to give to her. We were visiting with a family on Sunday (Pezo and I) and they mentioned that they had a couple puppies in the patio that were left. We went back to play with them a bit and I remembered that the other elderes were looking for a dog and so I asked the hermana if they could choose one and she said yes for free and so we basically put the dog in my backpack and went to the chapel and surprised Karina after institutes with a new puppy and it was awesome she was like crying I think I´ll give another girl a puppy someday in my future because it´s fun.
The weather's been almost 40 degrees (104 degrees Fahrenheit) this week and it´s really great. Here, we contact by going to a house and ask for a glass with water and they give it to us and we start to talk and share the gospel and it´s way fun.
Always Great,Élder Hicken
