To celebrate this important day, we (the girls in my zone) had a gift exchange and the catch was that all the gifts had to be green. Hna. Snelson got me a bracelet and a pair of basketball shorts to exercise in!
Funfact: Today is the anniversary of the Relief Society (Sociedad de Socorro.)
We had an interesting week! I spent my 9 month mark (March 12th) in the emergency room with a very sick and dehydrated ''hija.'' She fainted and wasn't doing well so I got to learn what it's like to be a mom with a sick child! Pretty stressful, but a great learning experience and good prep for the future. The private hospital was a lot nicer than I expected, although it definitely looks like Honduras. We had to go back to take urine exams the next day and spent a lot of time in the house as my comp rested. So I was able to update the ''carpeta de area'' (whooo!) and watch mom's Time Out for Women DVD's I asked her to send! But now we're feeling well and ready to work hard! And we're very happy.
I can't believe half my mission is gone. I feel like I came here a month ago. People keep telling me that time just keeps picking up from here! So I need to take advantage of every minute!
We brought a couple we're teaching to a stake activity and they liked it, but didn't end up going to stake conference. It is SO HARD to get families to church! Pray for Julissa and Victor! In Stake Conference, Richard G Scott and Dallin H Oaks gave talks in Spanish in the broadcast, which was really cool! Maybe someday I'll give a worldwide talk in Spanish. ¿Quien sabe?
Well, have a great week and know that I LOVE YOU!
