First off, i got my new compa and she has been out 5 months but that girl is PREPARED! She is so awesome and so bold. We have been working so hard and staying so busy. She is an incredible cook and it almost brings tears to my eyes.. :) Her Dominican Spanish is a LOT different from my Mexican Spanish and so sometimes I just have 0% idea what she is saying, haha. She is teaching me a lot of phrases and words. Just spending one week together, I feel like I have gotten a lot sassier, haha. I say "girl" after everything, oh no. She is seriously such a prankster and is always scaring me and popping out from all over the house and car. She always pretends like she can see spirits behind me.... super creep. LOVE HER!
So this week for English Class, i taught everyone how to play a very American game. DON'T EAT PETE! HAhahahaha. Except I had all the squares be letters and we made it so every time they ate a mini M&M off a letter, they had to say a word in English that started with that letter. They loved when you go to yell at the person. They would get so scared. SO FUNNY!
Something Sisters do is have "date nights" with each other. You pick a night every so often to finish up nightly planning earlier so you have time to watch a movie together or do an art project or make a treat. It just depends. So I asked Sister Castro what she wanted to do for our date night and her eyes just lit up and she said "Smoothie challenge." TURNS OUT a smoothie challenge is when you both pick 5 random things from your kitchen, write their name on a piece of paper, put them in a jar, and draw out 5 each. THEN you blend up whatever you picked and you have to DRINK IT! I, of course, picked an old slice of pizza, crystal light squirt stuff, ice cream, sloppy joe juice mix, and an onion. (kill me.) I can't remember what she chose but it was equally gross. So needless to say we spent our date night, and a long while after, throwing up in the sink and toilet. HAhahah it was the worst idea ever. Don't tell Sister Heap mom.
Conference was amazing. it made me realize I really want to go to Africa after my mission and go play with all the little black babies, so will someone sponsor that trip?
You GUYS!!??? Do you EVEN REALIZE HOW TRUE AND COMPLETE OUR CHURCH IS!? DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THAT OUR PROPHET IS GODS MOUTH PIECE!? How incredible? How blessed are we. I know, without a single doubt, this church is Christ's church. He is at the head.
