Camera has virus, ironed cookies, we eat iguana, using the priesthood

November 3, 2014

My camera is very very ill with a virus, and I took soooo many good pictures this week, and I want to share them with you.

1. Today we made cookies with mom's super tasty cookie batch pack. It was honestly a large taste of heaven, and we also enjoyed the science that we did with it all. The most fun way was making them in tin foil and with the iron. It turned out more like a caramelized cookie, but it was good. Needless to say, I ate 1 ton of cookie dough and loved every minute of it.

2. The other day we were walking in the night, and there was a guy walking a little bit funny. He walked up to a street sign and smacked it really hard. We thought that he may had been under some sort of an influence, so we walked to the other side of the street. He kept walking, got up next to a tree, got ahold of a branch, and got in a pull-up position, and just snapped a huge tree branch off the tree, and threw it to the ground.

3. We ate iguana twice this week. Both from the same family  (I have photos, buuuut they are not working right now.)

Yesterday were the 4 confirmations that we had from last week's baptisms. It was pretty darn good. They were a large crop of people who were just baptized, so now we have been on a good hunt for new investigators. Not too many of them are showing any sort of really wanting to get things done...

Unfortunately, our recent convert, Lorenza, has been pretty darn sick in the last little bit. Yesterday we went and gave her a blessing and seems to be doing a bit better. It is such a privilege to be able to hold the priesthood, and it feels really really good when we get to use it.

The lessons we keep having with Federico and his family are the best because every time we teach them we feel the spirit super duper strong. So that is pretty darn rockin. They are having quite a few difficulties within their family, but they are progressing a lot within the gospel, which makes everything a whole lot better.

I am really quite happy where I am at. It shatters my universe how fast time goes. I feel like part of it is because it just feels super - always. We sweat every day of the week. 

I will be attaching photos when possible and I sure love you cats. A lot.

Keep on keeping on
Go to the temple
Finish reading the Book of Mormon
