So Christmas and New years have past but they are still celebrating here. This is the time of the fiestas! Dancing in the streets, the negritos going through the streets. You can always tell when they are coming because you can hear the beat of their drums. Then I spend too much time looking out the window at them during my personal study time. Next week I will have to send pictures of them. They look kinda creepy.
New Years we didn’t sleep. Like Christmas, there was a huge firework show and it was so loud! We ended up going on the roof to watch all the fireworks go off. Since its kinda dangerous to go out on New Years eve we had a dinner as a zone to celebrate the new year. This lady from one of the wards cooked for us all.
So its been going good. We are supposed to have a wedding and 2 baptisms next week but I am kinda disappointed because I don’t know if it will go through or not. I guess we will see what happens. It’s a really wierd story. So one day we show up at a less actives house. They invited us in and introduced us to the addition to their family or should I just say household because Yessy and Abraham aren’t married. Abraham is a less or was a less active member that normally hid from us. But he got sick and didn’t have anything to do and started reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon. All of a sudden he just wants us to come over almost every day to read the scriptures. He has been coming to church for the last two weeks even though he is sick. So we have been helping him and teaching his girlfriend. Their wedding is all planned for the 15th along with Yessy´s baptism. But yesterday they went to the clinic because he has been getting worse but the doctors couldn’t find anything and they say it’s all in his head. A counselor in the ward told me that maybe it’s best to postpone everything because he might be crazy or something. It’s a really wierd situation and I don’t know what is going to happen yet.
We will see what happens this week!
Love you all!
