Well, after walking in the rain and the wind, then sitting in wet clothes for an hour, then waking in more rain and more wing, then sitting in wet clothes for an hour, then after waking in rain and wind yet again, and sitting in wet clothes for an hour, the cold finally got to me. It was pretty bad. From the moment we got back to the pension after the district meeting on tuesday (all the walking and sitting including this and traveling) until thursday night i was pretty dead. i finally started to take ibuprofen and it saved my life, but a lot of this last week was spent doing nothing. i watched a couple disney movies. luckily my zone leader had bought a few here in las flores but left em here so i was able to watch em when i needed to get my mind off the pain. i think it was mostly just a migraine and my throat was super swollen and a fever. but its all good mom i survived and i didnt even go to the doctors office. they dont actually have one of those here so i wouldve gone to the ´hospital´. But were all good now!

Well the paraguayan who came to church way too late came way too early this sunday so we were kinda bummed about that, hes super awesome.
The system for reimbursements broke down so we might not have anything but personal money for food and travel for a couple days. kinda sucks cuz im running out but i dont wanna ask my companion to use his money. We spent a lot of time at a lot of different banks for him to finally withdraw some money his family had sent him. Hes from very humble beginnings. But to celebrate his being able to withdraw the money we went to a huge buffet on our way home from visa jenk. Id send pictures but its not havin it today. So more stuff for next week haha.
Were gunna focus on family home evenings this week, because the members are excited to work, the investigators and whatnot are willing to and need to become friends with the few members we have, and so were just gunna start throwing them together in the house of whoever we can. Pretty excited.
This last week we were able to work alot, but its been extra freezing cold lately so its been a little more of a sacrifice haha. Also despite the cold more people are out on the street at night, so my companion hasnt been sleeping well. Just impressive the amount of children and whatnot walking outside our pension like its a summer day.
I invite you all to enjoy the summer! Especially the heat! And also the chance to have family home evenings!
Well i hope my mom finds a way to send the pictures I sent her about what we did for PDay today. Also I mentioned the museum last week, and after cyber i realized i had not sent the pictures, so i probably will next week. Dont worry, the museum exists, we actually went, tenga fe (have faith).

Lehi’s Dream pt 2:
Transfers this week! Were stayin here! Both me and Elder Gonzales arent changing a bit, which I´m pretty glad for. I didnt want to move or leave Las Flores just yet. To celebrate we ate 2 big ol pizzas on the roof of our neighbors house. Pictures attached (i hope).
Today to celebrate 4th of July we had a District Activity, where we went to the lake here in las flores and ate a bunch of choripan (chorizo, which is like fat delicious brautwurst, and pan which is bread haha) and played futbol and messed around and we brought a ton of potatos prepped cuz i was gunna make mashed potatos for the district but we didnt have time and also ran out of coals ): all good though. ya see on sunday the elderes de cañuelas came and stayed the night and we had a little 4th of july party. its elder bonifaz from spain and elder jesson from pennsylvannia, so he knew what was going on atleast. ill send pictures next week, we used elder jessons camera mostly. attached are pictures of the district at the lake.
