on wensday we got to move a bunch of dirt into one of my investigators backyard. we invited all the elders in the zone (4 other elders). we met at our house and they all came hungry. they chowed down on my peanut butter and jelly. then we went over and moved two mounds of dirt and spread it out. for the second august in a row i was out in the heat with a shovel moving dirt . the only difference is this time i could understand the spanish haha .it was fun though.we worked for like 2 and a half hours.
on saturday we got to clean the baptismal font , which included like 3 cockroaches, for one of the members who was gonna baptize his twin sons.
a fun new thing this week, when it rains the stair case to our house gets filled up with cockroaches so we have to run like little girls and hope they don't fall on us then i have to open the door really fast. its not a fun experience. i panicked and almost dropped the keys. then this week as i was showering i was washing my hair and i felt something crawl across my feet. i panicked a little as any one would and opened my eyes, in this moment soap filled my eyes which felt amazing. once i got the soap outa my eyes and received my sight again i was pleased to see not one, not two but yes 3 freaking big cockroaches bathing with me. i began to panic again but they seemed pretty happy until i started smashing them. but two escaped down the drain. then the next day another one came climbing out of the drain. i guess we've cleaned our house so well the only place they have to go is the drain. but now i'm afraid to shut my eyes when i shower.
all in all ive been really enjoying the area. most of the people are really nice and me and my comp have a good time. hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
