I was trying to speak more Spanish but i couldn't think of any more so that's what you get! haha but how was everyone's week!? i hope good!!! :) Thanks for the pictures everyone! i love you all and love seeing the pictures!! i miss you guys a ton but don't worry, I'm not coming home! instead.. I'm being shipped further away!
To start it off...last Saturday night it was about 10:25 pm so we were all getting ready for bed..when all of the sudden we here Hermana Ward (my companion) screaming from the bathroom "HERMANAS! HERMANAS! I NEED YOUR HELP!!" the toilet was overflowing with water..it was so bad it ran out into our hall!! and we were trying to help her turn it off but we weren't explaining it very well and we couldn't get in the bathroom because she had no clothes on!!! So after she finally got her clothes on and unlocked the door i ran to the toilet and PUSHED the black lever!! it finally stopped over flowing but we were left a bathroom covered in 1 in of water and a wet hallway! needless to say we didn't get to bed on time that night..a plumber came about 11:15 to help and check out the toilet!!! we were all laughing so hard..but i felt so bad for hermana ward!! its the joke in our apartment now!! :) so a few lessons i learned that night..1) DO NOT PULL THE BLACK LEVER..it will dump every drop of water into the toilet..and 2) never use the bathroom with out clothes on... (also..i have a mini heart attack every time i flush the toilet!!!)
Our district must have a curse when it comes to toilets because Elder Cazier broke the mens toilet in the classroom! he says that someone "put a pen in the toilet and that's why it broke" but we all know it was because he drank the orange juice that morning!!! we have lots of fun times with the district!! :) its a good thing i have a journal because there is NOT enough time to tell you every funny thing that happens here..but when i get home we will read my journal!! :)
This week we also continued to teach Felipe and the lessons went WAY better than the first! he actually told us he wanted to be baptized and we set a date (pretend of course) for the 18 of October! it was so cool to see how the spirit touches people! and its crazy how real the gift of tongues is...i was able to speak Spanish in those lessons! well Thursday was our last lesson with him though... :( we were so sad!! but have no fear family..we saw Felipe again..only this time the perfect wonderful investigator we taught about the gospel was standing in front of us as Hermano Vargas!!! yeah that's right...WE WERE TEACHING OUR TEACHER!!!!! i was freaking out!! poor hermano vargas had to struggle through our bad Spanish! (sorry i ruined it for you chance..i just had to tell you!!) (whit: WHY DIDN'T YOU GIVE ME A HEADS UP!?) anyway..hermano vargas is super cool and i like him a lot but he is very intimidating..he is Mexican and has a British accent..scary! haha but hes really good! On Friday..we had to take running shoes to his class..yeah he made us run too!! but its was all to help introduce our lesson..stress management haha it was a much need lesson after the night before!!!!!
also! on Sunday i got to watch the re-dedication of the Ogden temple!!! its was amazing!!!!! i have never been to one before and so it was so cool..we got to hear president monson speak and elder bednar!!! :) also that night we got to watch a video of elder bednars! it was called "The Character of Christ" and whit..i think this is the same devo he gave on the Christmas you were at the MTC!! on my 4th day in the MTC i watched the same talk you did on your 4th day at the MTC!!!!!! :) it was an amazing talk!! :) For Tuesday devo we heard rumor that president uchtdorf was gonna come speak to us! but it was actually Elder Ballard..and was AMAZING!! the mtc is a spiritual power house!!!! :) i love it!!!! :)
i love the hermanas in my district..we all get along really well and are all progressing with the language! we try to Hablo Se Idioma (speak your language) a lot but we cant do it all the time..yet!! :) today i am doing laundry and packing for Guatemala...i thought i just did this 2 weeks ago! :) but esta bien!! :)
Time fly's by during email time so i have to go! but i love you all so much and i pray for you each everyday!! and our district always prays for our families (partly because that's all we know how to say in Spanish haha but still!) so know i think about you everyday!! and i cant wait to talk to you on tuesday!!! you are the reason i am serving my mission!!!!!! Yo Amo ustedes mucho!!!!!! :))))
Con mucho amor,
Hermana Kelli Canty
