On Thursday we moved out of our big, kind of creepy house. All 6 of the Hermanas in our zone are still together, and we still only have one bathroom, but now we don't have a pensionista for us to eat and shower with. We are feeding ourselves now because our house isn't in our ward boundaries and we don't have the time to pick up and leave for breakfast and dinner to walk 15 minutes both ways. The apartment is smaller, but now we have one kind of giant room for all of the beds, a cocina, and two smaller study areas. Oh! And my favorite part... we have new friends. A few hundred of them actually. Here, we call them coocarachas. And I do not like them, Sam I am. I'm pretty proud of myself though. I've only had two legit emotional breakdowns because of them. And I scream a lot less, and I have worked up the bravery to help kill some of them. The other Hermanas have made a game out of it...Matar las coocarachas! So yeah. That's been an adventure.
We've been having a real hard time with our investigators this week. Almost everyone that was progressing, doesn't really want to talk to us right now. And it breaks my heart. Also, a lot of times it's just hard to find people. I don´t think I have described how the houses are here. It`s pretty bizarre. All of the houses are connected, really. And they`re almost all made out of concrete. But there will be one main door, and you can have upwards of 8 to 10 families all living in the same house. People rent out cuartos, one room, or pisos, one floor, of a building. There are usually between 3 to 6 pisos in every house. So when we`re trying to find us some contacts, it`s more of a game than anything to find them.
Oh! And major landmark for the week: I gave my first talk in sacrament meeting. In Spanish. Crazy, I know. I spoke on charity, and I think it went pretty well. I had permission from the bishop to read directly from what I wrote, which I was quite grateful for. But the members afterwards said that they could actually understand what I was saying, and they were able to feel the Spirit. Miracles happen every day.
Anywho, we're pressing onward. We have our first transfers today, and word is our zone is being all sorts of mixed up, and we have new Hermanas coming to open a new area. Exciting stuff!
Love you all.
