This week has been overwhelming and crazy! I am adjusting
pretty well to things, just little by little.The language is getting a
tiny bit there. But not really. Understanding people is getting a little
bit better. But I'm still so confused when people talk. haha.
For packages and letters, ALWAYS send it to the mission office.
We get packages and letters once a week from the zone leaders. So it
will get to me. Also don't put any medicine or pills in the box. Because
customs will open it and hold it. For medicine you have to get written
permission saying that you have reason to take it. So I want to avoid
that. Also don't put anything sketchy in there. I know that´s vague but
still. If customs has to check it, I have to pay for the value of
everything in the box to get it. And I don't want to do that' haha.
Elder is a big thing down here and I'm pretty sure its free. So if people
want to write me super easy, tell them to use dear Elder. Fast and
One thing in the package that I want is gatorade powder. Any
flavor is good. Gatorade is way expensive down here. Also maybe a bottle
of ranch? Hidden Valley of couse hahaha! It doesn't exist down here.
There is a type of ranch that the Argentines tried to copy, but its
terrible. Don't send me candy either. If I want it I can get it down
here. Plus its bad for you and for your teeth. I'm trying to eat good
stuff here and keep my teeth from rotting haha.
So this weeek I got kissed twice!!
Hahaha soo funny. On the cheek of course. Its custom to kiss on the
cheek here, but people usually know to not do it to missionaries. But
some random people we came in contact with did it to me really fast. I
was like, what just happened?? hahaha.
Also Im sick. Its like a full on cold and a sinus infection too I'm pretty
sure. I'm coughing a ton and yeah. It keeps me up at night. I cant afford
to lose sleep! My teeth hurt when I jump or step down from a curb. Its
wierd. So we went to a faraceria here. It was sketchy. Trying to
describe what was wrong with me with a SUPER limited vocab was
impossible. I used a lot of hand signs...haha. It was super embarrassing.
But I ended up getting the right thing I think? Well at least I hope.
It was pretty expensive too! So I'm taking some sketchy Argentine
medicine right now. Hopefully it works. I hate being sick. Just like
walking around in the scorching hot humid weather doesn't help either. I
just want to fall over and die haha. But other than that...I'm doing
I've drank the water already here. Because members always
make us tang with tap water..Tang is huge down here. Maybe the tang
disinfects the water? haha probably not. But it hasn't really effected me
that much. I still use my filters though.
We had some investigators
this week finally, but over half of them have already dropped us. They
just say they aren't interested. I don't get it.. Its lame working super
hard without seeing anything come out. Were just planting seeds though I
guess. There is no such thing as wasted time as a missionary. Unless
you´re being disobedient! Well I gotta go! I'll try to think what I want
in a package and tell you next week. I love you guys all!
