Well this week was a little long for me, not gonna lie. It could be due to the fact that I was sick for about 4 of the 7 days last week. It wasn't too much fun but I am still alive now so it was good. The other day some Sisters told me they felt bad for me because I look so thin. On the bright side, they gave me free food so I can't complain too much.
So as for this week. I have not watched conference yet, and really I don't know when that will happen. It wasn't even brought up. I feel like we are watching it . (So sorry mom, we actually weren't doing the same thing at the same time haha.) As I was sick this week, I was able to read a ton of Liahonas and New Eras. I also got through the entire nook of Genesis in one day. It was super fun. I think by the end of that day, I was a pro with the Bible. I got pretty close to Elder Canencia though. We talked a lot since it was just us two. I really like him and I am super glad that he is my Trainer or Tatay. I got weighed at the beginning of this week and was around 230 pounds, but I think I dropped a couple more since I kept getting sicker as the days progressed.
In turns of investigators, we are super close with one. If he keeps up obeying the Word of Wisdom, I could have my baptism in this next cycle! I also had an interesting experience at a dinner this week. We were served rice, beef stew, and chicken feet. Now I was totally content just having rice and a little bit of beef stew, but my companion on the other hand... He kept telling me that I need to at least try chicken feet, so of course he put one on my plate. I have never had an urge to hit him before that moment. He may have a black eye now though. Anyways, there it was. I knew I had to do it now, but I really didn't want to. When I went to go take my first bite, the stupid fingers petted my face. How ironic. Being petted by my food. I was more than happy to be done with that thing when I finished it. Honestly it just tasted like the outside of a chicken. It didn't have a lot of actual good meat on it because of course, its just a chicken foot. I also saw my first wild monkey this week! It was just sitting there outside our apartment. Of course I got a picture of it!!! It was super cool. I also got another haircut this week.
The work is going great along with the language. I see more and more improvements everyday. I just want to say I know that we are blessed as missionaries. I have had many trials, but in the end, I have always received help right when I needed it. With those blessings though, we need to do our part for the Lord. Even though I was sick, I still made sure I tried to go do at least 2 lessons a day. Now granted, some of those days, that probably wasn't the best thing for me to do, but I was glad I did it. Now to answer your questions mom. I do like my mission president. He is super nice and pretty dang funny, but I have to say I love his wife too. She has helped me through my long list of sicknesses. I felt bad sometimes to text her because she probably has a lot of missionaries to deal with. Although if it weren't for her, I wouldn't be taking the medications I need to be taking right now.
I am glad to hear you guys are all doing well. I love you guys and I just keep working hard so the time will fly by. I can't wait for the day I get Taco Bell again. I tell you what, its gonna be a long two years without any burritos...
Love you all,Elder Warren
