...on HUMP DAY...and of course I could not pass up a chance to put on my pyrotech show! HA HA and yes I picked a short sleeve Mom and a dingy one at that!
Well this past week we went to Ramos Mejia for a special training meeting! I really did learn a ton in our special Training Meeting, like a whole lot!!!! I learned that we need to confirm the doubt our question our investigator have and also that we need to think about questions before we ask them, like what do we want them to learn from the question we are going to ask! Really it was an awesome training session!
So my story of the week….here it goes and Mom don’t freak out I’m just fine, with a little scrap below my eye! We had been working really hard this week with finding new investigators and everything. On Saturday we finished lunch with one of the Hermanas in the Ward and we were walking down the road and 2 pibes from the street approached us. They told us they were robbing us right up front... so Elder Bustamante, being somewhat little stepped to the side of them and avoided the situation, however that left me cornered. I was just about to call someone to confirm an appointment when these 3 approached us so of course they took our phone and my watch, and they told me they had a gun. I knew that they didn´t (or I thought I knew) but just for precaution I let em’ take my stuff. I just kind of laughed as they walked away because HELLO the phones here are trash and my watch well let’s just say it’s not a Rolex by any means!! All in all it was somewhat a rush and super exciting after the thought! The best part was when out of nowhere Elder B books it towards them! I had no idea what he was doing I thought is this kid crazy, 15 mins ago I’m pretty sure he threw me under the bus, but apparently he heard the police “beep” from a patrol car down the street so he flagged down the police men and they jumped out and caught the guys on the hoof and we got our stuff back!!! How’s that for the story of the week!!! I mean how nutsy fun is that?
Again Mother Dearest, don’t have a cow I am fine, really!! I debated if I should say anything or not but gotta have one account here on my blog somewhere about these kinds of events right!!
Other NEWS FLASH…..Brelynn is going on a Mission. I will fill you in as the details unravel, how cool is that mom, like insane right!!! She will be a great Hermana. I told you her little squeeze is going to Canada on a Mish here real soon so this is cool!
Well I gotta run not a lot of time today so until next week children, whoops speaking of, I sent Wyatt a Birthday email and his card should be getting there any day! Also a Birthday shout-out to the lovely Miss Riley Powell! Also one out to my grandma Margo!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! LOVE YA´LL!
