The Lord Is Protecting Us

Hola Hola! 

This week was an interesting one! We had interviews with President and I was ready to get shaved (that's missionary for lectured) for eating last week at Plaza Mira Flores. He did address it, but overall he pretty much let it go. He told me that I should remember this moment and let it be something that I would remember for the rest of my life about obedience...maybe he's right, I don't know. But at least he's not mad. 

It sounds like a good time to be in Utah right now. I remember spring! We are about to enter wintertime here. That means in about two weeks it is going to start raining like crazy! I'm expecting one or two GIANT rainstorms every day! haha It's awesome! Winter also means that we will be able to talk on the phone again!!!!! (Or skype or whatever...) I'm pumped!!! We still haven't figured out all the details, we will probably do that this week. I'll keep you posted!

I can´t believe that high school soccer playoffs are about to start already!!! Second place in region isn't half bad! I remember this time last year vividly! I can't believe that it has already been a year! You will have to keep me updated on what happens in the playoffs. 

OK, I'm going to tell you an awesome story, just don't freak out! On Friday we were teaching a lesson to one of our investigators. We were talking about marriage and baptism. Then all of a sudden we hear BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG! Eight gunshots from just like fifty yards away! Five teenagers run in the house and slam the door screaming that their buddy just got shot! We turned off the lights and everyone got down and we were quiet for about ten minutes. Then we went outside to see what had happened, and to see if anyone needed a blessing, but we couldn't find anyone bleeding or anything. So we decided it was better if we just left that part of the area for the day. We have seen people running around with guns all week. It has been crazy! But we are fine and really I still feel safe in my area. People respect us as missionaries! Plus the Lord is protecting us! (: 

Love you guys! I hope you have a great week!
