So I had a kind of bummerish week. So Sunday we got the changes and my companion left for Casa Grandes. So, Tuesday I went to leave him in the offices and my companion is elder Díaz from Honduras. Ok moving on to the bummerish part is after the changes I went to the food appointment and I’m pretty sure that there I got food poisoned. Maybe the ward didn’t want me to stay around but either way I was down for the count Tuesday until Saturday. This week was independence week and boy was I spewing all kind of colors. They must of seen me really Mexican because I had red white and green coming all out of me. Gross.
Saturday was the party in the ward. We went but it was pretty lame. We started with the grito that the bishop gave but a lousy less active called me to bother us and I was like ah man I wanted to hear the grito. Then they did the national anthem. But us four missionaries were all lost, Two Texanos, one Hondureño and the worst one Dominicano. After stumbling through the song they started a skit by the primary, it was Pinocchio. I thought maybe somehow Pinocchio was going to make his way into the story of Mexico but after it finished I was like are you kidding me this has nothing to do with today. It should of been about Morales or Hidalgo or Zaragoza. but Pinocchio has nothing to do with Mexico in fact it’s from Italy but they did a good job either way. Afterwards they asked the Dominicano elder to say the prayer on the food. He was like but I’m not even Mexican. Then he gave the mic to an old blind guy that they brought and he started singing Mexico Mexico it was pretty funny.
Victor got confirmed finally. I almost grabbed the microphone afterwards to start singing the hymn that goes VICTORY VICTORY. I actually got to do the confirmation which was really fun because I’d never done it before.
So well have fun picking up brush. Here’s some fotos that I took with my companions.
