-I saw a silver Tiburon from a distance this week. Yay! It had an ugly spoiler and was kind of beat up but it was the same body style as our car.-As we were teaching a lesson this week I noticed the lady had a ring on that looked like a shield with letters inside, but I couldn´t tell exactly what it was. When we were leaving I asked to look at it and it was a CTR ring. She had bought it and didn´t know it was something related to the church. That was our first visit with her, so we´ll see where it goes, but she wasn´t home when we went back for a second visit.
-We have a lady who usually cooks lunch for us and usually I like what she cooks and eat it all, but one of the days this week she fixed some rice with a side of meat. She said it was something of chicken. I am pretty sure it was chicken liver. The good little Hermana Cottam tried to eat some of it but the texture was weird and it had a real strong meaty taste to it. It looked more like some intestines or something and I just couldn´t finish it. Hopefully she won´t cook that again.
-We went to teach a Seventh Day Adventist. I started by saying that it is through Christ that we can have peace and happiness in this life and she said, “You think we can have happiness in this life?” I said yes and asked her, “You don´t think we can be happy here?” We ended up having a fairly civilized discussion and we are going back this week to teach the plan of salvation.
-So I have been enjoying late night taco Doritos they have here. Do they have those in AZ? I hope so... I also drank my ginger ale that I bought last week. I think that was the first time I drank from a can since I left home...weird.
-I read the talk by Elder Ballard that Lexxy mentioned in Spanish this week. I also liked when he says that nobody loves you in the way you mother does or would do as much for you as your mother. I love mis padres. By the way it was the Dominican Father´s Day yesterday...so Happy Father´s Day again.
-We had a meeting in the office on Friday. It was fun to see the CCM president. We had bacon cheeseburgers and fries for lunch... mmmm. I got my mail, so that was grand and the package had just gotten there.
-I saw the Bishop from Mendoza this week who was working on the chapel here with another Mendoza ward member. It was fun to see him since I didn´t get a chance to during my exchange in Mendoza. I sure love my peeps in Mendoza. I can´t wait for you to meet them too.
I hope life is well back at home. I am excited to get back into the groove at school. I can´t believe school starts next week for the kiddos there...crazy early! I love you peeps soooooooooooooooo much. I was so happy reading about how happy Lexxy is with her salvadoreña. Things are good here and I am doing well. Can´t wait to see you in 16 weeks... best day ever. I hope you have a grand week and a great start to August. Love, ejc
