I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know my mom certainly did. I won't go into details of our skype call, but seriously, she's sooooooo trunky. "I miss you, I pray for you, you need to be here to play the piano, etc." I'll admit, it got me a little homesick as well, but mostly for my grand piano. I miss that black hunk of wood and strings. In terms of Elder Morales and his family, I'm pretty sure they put a family goal to make him as trunky as posible. Every time I could hear part of his skype call, someone was saying, "yeah, in 3 and a half months, you'll be able to ______!" So yeah, he's pretty trunky. But the work still continues here in Mixqui.
This week absolutely flew by; it was insane. I think it was because of all of the members that were coming with us every day. In the middle of the week when we realized we already had the standard of 15, we put a goal for 25 by the end of Saturday. Everything was going well to hit the goal until Humberto cancelled on us because he "didn't feel well". Triste Humberto. We only hit 24 due to his cancelation. We were not amused. 24 is still an excellent number, though.
We've got a number of baptisms lined up for these next few weeks; for lack of time on both ends of this email (writer and reader), I won't go into too many details. We have 3 for this weekend, 3 for next weekend, 1 for the weekend after, and potentially 1 for the weekend after. Mixed in with them are a few people who need to attend church more regularly and they can be baptized as well. Changes are in 2 weeks, and I'm not sure if I want to be changed or not... I'm preparing myself mentally for whatever happens. Mixquiahuala has been a wonderful experience, and I know it will continue to be so, but already having 3 cycles here (2 with Elder Morales), it's most likely that I'll be changed. Darn you, mission life! Ah well. I'll get over it.
Iré y haré,
P.S. Sorry for the short email. Please enjoy this picture of me with some parrots that I found while Elder Morales was Skyping. The one on the stick bites (hence, he's on the stick), but he also talks. He says, "hola", "¿cómo estás?", and "¡LALO!".
