Saturday! Tomorrow's Sunday! And then it's Monday!
Today was interesting... we had 12 Semanas again and then went contacting! Yay! But we were also able to find a place where they sell paper so we can make a lechuga preguntona for when we visit members this next week, and also a knife so we can cut food items! (The secretaries finally brought everything we needed the other day and even some folletos and copies of the BoM so we can actually do some real contacting! We're really happy!) So we're pretty much set in our house now, we're just missing curtains. But we will find a way!
And we had a lunch given to us by a member lady who gave us 1/2 lb of spaghetti and 1/4 lb of rice and a big glass of Pepsi. To each of us. So I kindly asked her if I could take the remaining third of my food home and eat it a little later. You gotta do that a lot, sometimes.
And then we had 5 hours of solid contacting. I don't think I've ever done that in my life. And I don't really recommend it. But that's what we gotta do because we have literally nothing to work with. And it was raining the entire afternoon we were wandering around outside. But we did get 5 lessons in, so I'm happy. This is definitely a sort of crash-course training for Hna Artica, but she's holding up great. Only been 4 days, but she seems to doing pretty well. Right now I'm still getting a feel for how she works and her preparedness, and we'll go from there. Although she is very well-taught on a doctrinal level. We just need to learn to take turns speaking in lessons and changing a few phrases and words. But other than that, she's like a hermana with a few months in the field, and not a few days. And she's a convert of 3 years! Go figure.
