Painting each other and the house!!

Hola everyone,

         This week has been very interesting as always. We did a service project for a lady that lives about 30 mins from my area. We painted the outside of her house. Hits the title of this weeks email!! Anyways, it was lots of fun... we all painted each other and the house. When we were done we have to wash off outside because there was paint everywhere lol. But her house looks really nice now. After the service the lady feed us some weird look soup. I ate about 15 bites and couldnt take it anymore so one of the Elders finished it off for me. Its always great when the Elders eat with you because they eat your food haha. I drink there nasty drinks for them and they eat my food. It works out really well. Anyways, Ill send pictures of this service later.

Next thing, well this week was kind of chill until it hit about Friday. My companion and I were walking down the street to go home after a long HOT day. Then all of a sudden this old man is yelling at us from across the street. He was yelling out Hola and hello over and over again. Then finally we look over at him and what do we see.. This old 70 something year old man peeing on someones car... WOW!! I couldnt believe it. We just pick up the speed and walk a little faster until we got home and wrote about it in our journals. Haha how crazy is that??

Well that same night I taught my first family home evening.. all by myself. I talked about the Holy Ghost and how he could help us in our lives. After the lesson they couple said I did really great and that my spanish is coming along. Im soo excited. Pretty soon Ill be speaking awesome spanish. Everyone already thinks that Im latina. They all say I look like Im not from Estados Unidos (United States). So yea.. haha.

Well guys this week was also a time where I had to go get an Oltra Sound done.. I keep having this pain in my side for a while and it wouldnt go away. I think it was just the food but my companion thought otherwise. She called mission pres. and he made me go to the doctor. When I got there the doctor said he thinks I have stones in my something... idk some big word. Anyways, he tells me that I have to come back to get an oltrasound done. So we set up an appointment and go back to get it done. Before we went back I was really worried because I didnt want to have any problems. So the Elders gave me a blessing. In the blessing the Elder said that God will make the pain go away and nothing will be wrong when I went to the doctor. The blessing was super direct and super powerful. After the blessing, Im talking right after, the pain was gone. When I went back to the doctor to do the test everything was normal. What a blessing!! God loves me sooo much. So now I have pictures of my stomach. haha...

Well Dogsssss...... What can I say.. They just love me. This weeks as we were walking down the street to go to a house a huge bear dog thing jumped right out at us. Good thing was is that it was tied to a tree. The tree was pretty old so we ran as fast as we could to get away from the tree. Who knows what could happen if that dog got off. on the way back from the house there was a bus that was driving by so we ran along side the bus so the dog wouldnt see us haha. I love the dogs here. They are awesome!!

Well thats all for this week guys. The work is moving along we even had a investigator at church this week. Love you all miss you tons!!
