Dear FAM and friends,
| My "huarache loco" which had eggs, chorizo, |
some other kind of meat, cheese, and salsa
on top of a thick tortilla thing with beans
on the inside of it. It was HOT but delicious :)
In other news, today I got to go to my first Zone activity! There are about 14 of us in the Plazas Zone, and we are the only Hermanas (there are 3 American Elders). So we met up at a chapel on the other side of town today and played Ultimate Frisbee with water baloons. Then, we pretty much had a water balloon war. It was a blast, and with about 200 very large water baloons, we all got nice and wet. Then we took off across town to eat "huaraches locos" on a random street corner (usually we don´t eat in the street because it´s a risk, but aparently these had been tried before...we´re crossing our fingers that the whole zone doesn´t get sick tonight). It was quite a party!
Ok, spiritual thought for the week: Patience is a virtue. It´s so easy to get frustrated with the pace of some in life, but really, stressing out about every minute wasted never helps situations. I'm learning bit by bit to be more patient with companions, members of the church, investigators, and even the Elders, who sometimes show up to comida an hour late...grr...). Anyway, patience is one of many important attributes of Christ, which I´m trying to master!
I love you all! Please send me any questions, or things you´d like to hear about!
Lots of love,
I finished the Book of Mormon! Out loud! In Spanish!
It only took me 7 weeks! It´s seriously the best book in the
world, and I plan on reading it over and over again for
the rest of my life!
|Can you find me? Still the tall one!|
