Surprise Birthday Party!  Hna Escobar is super awesome and coordinated with the elderes and Hno Rene to make up a surprise lunch for my birthday. It was really good! Almost normal American food. We had barbecued chicken, stuffed baked potatoes, a salad with chimol, typical rice-veggie thing, and drank Coke (as always!). Happy Birthday to me, again!

Pretty quiet Pday, we gotta wash a whole lot of clothes, but there's no water... still. In fact, our pila is empty. So I took advantage of that and washed our pila (with powdered laundry detergent and a broom, go Honduras) as it's been a while without cleaned it out well.
Tends to collect twigs and leaves and dirt, even though we always keep it covered. Ha saber. And we also cleaned house and chilled for a little bit. Headed over to write nuestras familias y seres queridos, and got cleaned up again to go the setting apart of Karolhyna because she's leaving for her mission tomorrow morning. So we got to go to that!
We made her a letter of love and counsel and encouragement, and I drew on the envelope so it was all pretty,

and we made her a pink bead gecko for her backpack!
We also made a set of geckos for ourselves and the elderes. They're very handy when there's unquiet children so they have something unbreakable and unchokable to occupy themselves while we teach.
So I wrote down all the proceedings and notes from talks and blessings and such to give to her and her mother, (the Maria that gives us lunch on Wednesdays) and I also got called upon to give some words of counsel, so that was kinda fun. I like talking in microphones!

So we did all that fun stuff, and wished her well, and that we love and miss her. Hna Ramos always went on divisions with us, and she's just an awesome person. Go missions!
