Oh….The Bolivian Lifestyle :)

Hello Everyone,

This was the last week before transfers and the fastest transfer of my life. Seriously! We had some fun times, and many things that have happened that neither of us will forget. That I’m sure of! We received our transfers last night and Hermana Wing is leaving to be a Sister Trainer Leader on the other side of the city and I am staying here with ANOTHER Hermana Ordonez. She only has 4 months in the mission, so it will be a lot of fun and I am excited.

This week was great, it’s been a little rough because the Catholic Pope has come to Bolivia so that’s been all the hype and of course now everyone has just suddenly become super catholic. We’ve had quite a few rejections. But, I think he leaves tomorrow so I’m sure people will begin letting us in again.

On Wednesday we went up to another little village called Andrada. It’s the area of the Elders but there is an investigator that has been taught by the Sisters so we went up to visit her. It was a workout! My legs feel like Jell-O now. It is such a cute little village and a little bigger than Pacolla. As we walked around, there were these cute kids playing outside. Just to help you understand the life of Bolivian children, one of the kids was not wearing pants or a diaper just playing in the dirt with nothing but his shirt. As we were playing with them he just started peeing in the middle of the street. Oh the Bolivian lifestyle….and who knows where their parents were. Then as we continued walking we came across this GIANT pig. I swear it was the biggest pig I’ve ever seen. 

On Thursday, we had a surprise Family Home Evening for Elder Ortiz at one of their recent convert’s home. We woke up early to go make a cake. It was really fun; we hung out, ate cake and drank hot chocolate.

On Sunday, Hermana Wing and I watched Meet the Mormons (Hermana Wing’s parents just sent it to her). We made homemade popcorn, drank soy banana milk and watched the video. We had to go out with a bang!!!

This morning we went over to our pensions house for breakfast. Because she has been out of town for a week, we have been eating at the temple. We all got together to say goodbye to Elder Ortiz who is leaving to go home to the Dominican Republic today at 5:00. The poor guy, you could tell he was a mess. I don’t want that day to come! Now we are going out to eat lunch with Elder Wingate and Elder Giles and then we’ll go home to finish packing.

Sorry this is kind of a lame email, I’ll make next weeks better, but I love you all and hope you have a good last week of summer break!
