I hope you´re all doing great. We had a b usy week last week. Presidente Rodríguez is really putting a lot of emphasis in the need to find new investigators every week, or as he likes to call it, “fishing”, so we did a whole lot of that the past few days. We had a lot of success and found 12 new people to teach, so we´ll see if anything comes about out of that. The weather here is still super weird. It´s incredibly hot in the afternoon…but freezing when the sun goes down. And the sun is super strong…I didn´t understand what people meant when they said the sun was gross, but now I do, because what happens when you´re out fishing all day, everyday for a week? The sun fries your brain, that´s what. You get sunstroke, that´s what. BEFORE YOU FREAK OUT MOM, it´s really m ild sunstroke and we called the mission nurse and she´s helping us get better. We just got a lot of headaches and nausea and stomach problems and Hna. Acevedo threw up haha. BUT WE´RE GONNA LIVE! And we´re drinking a lot more water. It´s super weird, thinking tha t it´s possible to get sunstroke when winter is starting, but hey! Welcome to Bolivia.
We had our first official English class this week, and we had so much success! The ward was super supportive and a bunch of members came, as well as investigators and some strnagers off the streets! We had a lot of fun teaching, and I think they we´re able to learn a little bit of English, too.
Well, I love you all so much and I hope you enjoy your new warm weather. Stay cool — literally– and don´t get sunstroke.
