District El Carmen!!!


10:14 pm
Today was crazy! Had our last District Meeting all together, and took a bunch of pics with everyone, and went to eat at Subway with Hnas Miller and Joaquin, as they're leaving on Thursday on their home flights, and went to the Benque [Stake Center] to give the nursing overview to the newbies, and then walked for an hour all over creation to find a place that sells this special kind of back brace for the elder that fell down the stairs, so we didn't have time to go the office, and then we taught a lesson, and then the other 2 fell through, and all our backup plans fell through, so we walked around and did street contacting for over an hour. And both Hna Robles and I were just exhausted and sleepy the whole time, so that was a really interesting day.
But the newbies seem like a good little bunch, there were something like 10, I think, that came, 4 hnas, 6 elderes, including 1 gringo, Elder Pieper. But they were a lot more awake and active than my group was (I fell asleep 2 or 3 times during the training day when we weren't actively doing something), and Elder Pieper is funny. Said he can teach the Gospel in Spanish, and that's about it for his language knowledge right now, but that's totally ok, and that's exactly where I was just a little bit ago (and still am, sometimes). So there's light at the end of the tunnel! But he's pretty easy going and eager, so I think he'll be just fine. Told him to change his socks often and not put the thermometer in his mouth and he nodded and said that was a good idea, he'll make sure to do that, so I have great hopes for this one, gonna be a great missionary. And, at the least, a healthy one, so I'm all for that, too.
