La vigésimo segunda semana!

Hola amigos!

This week was nuts, it flew by like nothing. I feel like I am always going at a 100 miles per hour trying to get everything done and trying to do it well. We had some cool experiences this week too, so here it goes.

First off, this Wednesday, we went searching for a contact that we received from the mission office. Some might say that it was a bad idea to do that without a member, but the result turned out be a great experience. The main problem is that our search took us an hour and a half from our house in Opico by pickup, to San Isidro, the farthest point of our area. We got there, taught a lesson to someone we contacted and then went looking, during our search, we found out that the last pickup leaves at 3:30, ten minutes away at that point. We went speed walking for the point where the pickups leave. We talked with the people there and they said we should just wait there. We waited. And waited. Finally a lady who actually knew what she was talking about told us the pickup had left early and that we were essentially stuck 40 kilometers from our house. We went looking for someone with a cellphone and began calling everyone we had numbers for to see if someone could give us a ride, but no one could. Finally one of them told us to wait for a truck with swimmers (there is a river nearby) to pass by. We started walking for a while, but nothing past. Finally we sat down and prayed. The second I asked Heavenly Father for a ride home, a pickup truck appeared. I ended the prayer and we quickly got a ride home. It was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had.

This Sunday I had the opportunity to give a talk with a 10 minute notice because one of the missionaries leaving didn't write their farewell. Luckily I had already written talks so I was well prepared for the opportunity. It was pretty cool!

Adiós por ahora!
