Goodbye Enfermedades

The last 2 weeks were rough on me I'll say that. Being bed-ridden is posibly <----? (I cant spell in English anymore don't judge me) the most boring thing EVER. I didn't know why it was happening and I was just discouraged. The next thing I knew I was on my knees praying. We can tell our heavenly father anything we want and he will listen, he will give comfort, and we will feel the spirit. Its really an awesome feeling to know you're not alone in the world, even when you feel like you are.

Now I'm better though! It feels amazing to get outside and finally get back to what we were doing. True the work has slowed down because of the 2-week lull but we'll get it back up and running soon enough!

So the first day that I felt better (Friday) we cleaned the church with some of the members. Now at this church we have like a back patio type of thing, and one member was told us, "Elders, can you go out back and clean up the fallen mango's that have fallen from the neighbors tree?" And of course we went out back. To our surprise, there were about 700+ fallen mango's back there. The face the sister made was PRICELESS. After she looked at us and simply said, "I'm sorry my children" or "lo siento mis hijos" (sounds less weird in Spanish). Took us about an hour to clean up all these "extra" ripe mango's. All around it was a good time and we got to get to know some of the members better. 

This was a good week! Oh also, I made an AWESOME cake. Dark chocolate cake with cookies and cream frosting. Id say that my mother taught me well, but her cakes are like 1,000,000x better than any cake like ever.

And HAPPY FATHERS DAY! I have the coolest dad ever! Hope you had a good one and ate some good food!!!

Have a good one!

OKay! Im very sorry that this weeks email is going to be sub-par again! I am STILL sick :) Got rid of whatever I had and 2 days later contracted the "gripe" (basically a killer-cold). Been in bed for days! So yeah I'm kinda annoyed/sad/bored when we just sleep in the house all day and can't do any work. So hopefully I'll get better soon! BUT I do have a good video from Thomas S. Monson. 

Who is the most important? Our families and friends. The support I've received from them is unimaginable. Stress, doubt, second thoughts, sadness, and a whole bunch of other feelings come with life, but when you are able to connect with the ones we love, it seems that all of these bad feelings disappear. We're here partly for that reason :)

Anyways, sorry for the suck-ish email again! hopefully I'll have some juicy stuff next week. :P

Whelp. This week I got a virus and was stuck in my bed all week! It was like some type of flu or something and my neck swelled up to the point where it was hard to breathe, eat, or even swallow. Yeah it was a bit rough. We really didn't do much this week. It's been a tough time this week. Not doing anything really is boring and I'm just excited to get back to work tomorrow. Today though, We went to the beach again. It was a fun time with my district and some other missionaries. Took some pictures like always! 
Sorry this week sucks for emailing but it is what it is!
Have a good one!
