“And where are you from, guerra??”

Things are good here in Sauces. I am still living in the little blue house, but I have a new companion! Her name is Hermana Liberona–she is from Chile! She just comleted 16 months in the mission and will turn 22 on Thursday! She does not speak english, so our conversations involve a lot of sounds and gestures..hahaha. But she is really sweet. She has SO much energy, and loves animals. Every time we pass a dog on the street (which is like every 2 seconds) she says, “Ohhhhh mi amor! Mi vida! Te amo mucho!” Haha. And she is always making fun of my accent! Everyone here makes fun of my accent:( The other day we were talking to someone in the street and out of nowhere he asked, “And where are you from, guerra??” (Guerra=white girl).

I have discovered that my official language for the moment is Spanglish. I can´t speak well in either language! We have one investigator who always wants to speak with me in English because she lived in the US for a few years, but I have a hard time speaking in english with her. Man oh man.

Right now we are teaching a really sweet family- they are like our grandparents. Everytime we show up they say, “The señoritas are here!” and they like to give us yogurt and hot chocolate. Hehe. Sweetest family ever!

In other news…never get a haircut if you can´t speak the same language as the person cuttingyour hair! It is the scariest thing ever. Long story short…last week a lady gave us really bad haircuts, and today a member (who is a hair stylist) helped us fix it. Ayayay.

Anyways, that´s all for now folks! I love you all! The church is true! Thank you for everything!!

“You are GOING to get married, Hermano!”

There is a family in our area– The father is an investigator and the mom and son are members. The parents aren´t married, and we were talking to them about the importance of marriage. They agreed to get married, but then the dad told us that he wouldn´t get married unless we helped him kill his chickens! It was a joke, but they really wouldn´t let us leave until they killed a chicken, and they made me hold the feet! Ughhhhh it was horrible. Afterward I told the hermano, “You are GOING to get married, Hermano!” hahaha. So there is my crazy story for the week.
