17 May 2010 Luck isn't always on my side

Hey Pops
Basically I have the worst luck in the whole world, over the last few days i have learned a little bit about aguantar, which basically means to put up with. The missionary work is doing great, Just I have been hit in the face with some bullcrappity type things in the real people stuff. Our Dueña, landlady, has been hounding us to move for a while now, but we can´t find a house... so this month she raised the rent 1000 pesos, or about 50 bucks. We get the money for rent from the mission offices, so I wasn´t too worried. but the offices didn´t get the notice, and for some reason even though she called them, only gave me the old amount. So I am living $50 short this month, out of $150. So, until they fix it, sounds like rice and 12 peso milk, delicious.

Also, last week we went and bought blankets, because its getting nippy outside, and we had the other elders take some of our stuff home, because my comp had errands to run. So like an hour later, we get home and I go to look for my stuff... yep. Left it on the bus. I don´t blame him, it was just a human mistake, and he can repent right? :) haha. But in my lost bag was my hymn book, with duct tape cover, a tie, my lucky charms, the old nike watch :,( and my Adidas. It was like I lost all of my soccer talent right there. Because I really don´t have any, wearing soccer shoes made it look like I was great. Good thing I brought my plaid slip ons!

That is enough bummer vibe for one day. There are these two kids who we are teaching that are way cool... G and B, they are 11 and 13 years old. They are getting baptized the 29th of this month, so we told them they had to come to church this week. They both had stuff going on, one had Tae Kwon Do, and the other one Fútbol... but they both came to church... I was so excited! In sacrament meeting I sat next to them and made them sing the hymns, hehe. They are still young enough that the missionaries are super cool, so we had a grand old time... besides that we have 4 or 5 other investigators who the force is very strong with... I mean they are progressing real nice. haha

Well I'm all bubbly happy down here.
love you guys, enjoy DC!
