Wow thats pretty crazy. I dont ever remember anything like that happening at the house when i was there. I dont even think the sump pump ever failed when i was home. Here in the mision i have had periods where i have been without electricity or water for a few days. Its really annoying when it happens.
So this week i feel like we didnt really have a whole lot of time to work because monday is pday, tuesday we had a zone conference and that lasted about half the day and then en the evening we had another meeting with the ward mission leader, wednesday we worked like normal, thursday was weekly planning and that goes until 12, friday we had to send one of the elders we live with off to tijuana for a conference and then that same day go get him, saturday service activity and i also felt sick the whole day, sunday church and a really cool conference from the Apostles and Profet.
By the end of the week we had accomplisted finding a lot of menos activos and putting appointments with some people referaled from other missionerys.
There is one food here that i will have to start to avoid i think. Its called Mole. Its basically a sause that is made up of like 20 different ingredients, including chocolate and chilies, and it is usually spread over chicken. It doesnt taste bad or anything but the last two times that i have eaten it, i have had pretty bad stomach problems. Right now i feel just fine so done worry.
This sunday we had the privlige of watching a special conference for all the ward counsle members, mision presidents, and misionaries. I really liked who they all talked about how it is really important that the misionaries and the ward work together. The have changed the phrase from mision work to Obra de Salvación. Idk what it is called in english. Salvation work?
My favorite part was when Pres. Monson talked about his time as a Mision Pres and when he visited the town of StThomas and the branch pres asked him for a new church building and he said not until they more members and could cover some of the funds.... so what did the branch pres do... he sent the misionaries to invite workers of a whole bunch of different skills that are needed in constructing the church building to his house and to be tought the gosple there.
Well love you all.
Have to go
