This week was crazy. It started off with no changes, which was a good thing and an okay thing. Sort of rough, but I will live. I do love most about my area, its just one little thing that makes me want to leave, but we shall see.
We went on Friday to visit an aldea about 3 walking hours outside of Yuscaran. We found a hitch for about half of it, which meant that Friday morning we spend about 2 hours traveling to get there. Its an older guy, Don Gustavo. he has 8 kids, over 50 grandkids, and over 60 ggrandkids. Its nuts. He had an amazing dream that was exactly like the spirit world, and I am sure will be baptized at all costs. Becuase they live so far away, that is a need to get them to church, which means bussing out there to bus them back. Then return them home. This brings stress number one.
We had to go get them in the morning, and were supposed to leave at six am, which means 5 wake up. The bus dude told us 1600 limps for the trip, which we thought was great and reasonable, and we were going to pull it out of the branch money. Well, getting up at five was bad. Horrible. Exhausted for Sunday. Then, on top of that, we didn't exactly understand them, and when they said 1600 per trip, they meant to go there and back. So to go and get them is one, go and drop them off is 2 trips. 3200 limps. We flipped a bit, and told them that that just wasn't going to fly, because they didn't explain themselves clearly. Granted we didn't ask, but its whatevs. Then on saturday at nine something at night the district drops another bomb on us.
That on sunday at 2 there will be a mandatory training in teguc, and all the auxilary presidencies have to go. Well, we are the presidency. So we took luis, our convert, and went, as he could well be the next bp here. We had to leave at noon, we got there late...and the worst part is when we called to see where the bus was that they had promised to pick us up in, a church bus, the bp of another branch told us that they just weren't going to go. Only the district presidente. So we called him and then HE told us that HE wasn't going to go....and we were already mid camino. I was so frustrated. Never again will I complain about going to a training at six in the morning with two weeks notice. Never again. All in all, I learned a ton. It was for all the presidents of all the organizations, so esparza went to the relief society one and I sat in on the sunday school one. And I am so grateful I went. I literally learned enough to better and reboot our entire system here, and I am so grateful for it. Saw the area 70, which was kinda neat, but didn't talk to him.
All of that, and I forgot to eat that morning. and then we didn't have time until later. So I bought (bad, right) cookies and a juice box for all three of us, and then at the thing the RS gave out cookies, and the juice box, so we snagged some of those and then bussed it home. It starting raining and so we took shelter in the police station at the desvio and chilled waiting for the bus that was never going to come, so we ended up talking with the police officer. She was nice and gave us mangoes. We finally got a jalon, at like 730, and got to the pueblo at like 8ish. So I didn't eat real food until 830 ish. Then there was no power, because whenever it sort of rains, the power goes out.
Then today, was Teguc and just nuts. Running all over, trying to get stuff going, and planned for activites for mothers day here. Cinco de mayo isn't celebrated here, thats just a mexican shin dig.
Congrats to Cody on making state!!!! Jordan soccer, we love it!!!!!! Good luck to all those boys this next week. Petey, you will do fine. Erin and Mas, enjoy psych. I miss that show. And erin, you win some and you lose some, but don't get discouraged. Don't talk to them, just play next time, and let your feet talk.
Sort of busy and stressed right now still, because we have a ton that we have to do with the branch and all that. But it wll all work out, I am sure of it. I just need to learn more patience and faith, apparently.
Love you all!!!
Hope that you all have a great week, and a wonderful mothers day to all you mothers.....
