This week was a really weird week. Usually the weeks here fly by, but for some reason this week was pretty slow. I think it was because I was super sick in the beginning of the week. I dont know what happened but I just had this super bad tempurature and super bad cough that I felt like I was underwater for like 3 days. It wasnt fun. Especially when I need to be at my best while I am out here, being sick makes it pretty hard. But I am better now, I only have a cough now.
Elder Jacobsen and I have started the process of moving our house. The lady that is in charge of our house wants us to pay 25 bucks more a month. I know that doesnt sound like much, but for Nicaragua money it is like 600 cordobas and we dont have that type of money to pay so we are moving. We think she just sees that we are both white and she thinks we have a ton of money so she wants us to pay more. So we are looking for new houses to more into. We found one that a member here owns and it looks like we are going to move in there but we have to wait because he has 2 teenage girls living in the house right now. So we have to wait until they move out in a month.
Oh it was Halloween on Friday right?? Ya, the people here dont celebrate Halloween. We totally forgot about it until like halfway through the day haha. I am so excited because Elder Jacobsen and I celebrated with a bag of skittles. Which I know that doesnt sound like much, but they dont have skittles here so it was a pretty big deal for us! I was so happy that he shared with me because if any of you guys know me well, you know how much I like my candy...especially skittles.
We are working really hard right now because we have a goal in our zone that if we get 10 people ready to baptise on the 22nd, we are going to baptise the people in a waterfall! So we are working super hard for that goal.
Not much more this week, like I said, it was kind of slow. But we are working hard here. The language is coming along and I am starting to become a lot more confident when I speak to people. It is a pretty cool feeling being able to actually communicate a little bit. I have come so far already.
Thank you all for all your support and all your love towards me. I love all you guys so much. I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them!
¡Les amo! Hasta la proxima lunes.
