How´s it going y’all. So right now, we barely got back from an activity that I’ll tell y’all all about. It was funny because walking here my companion was freaking out saying that he´s afraid that his parents might be worried that he isn’t alright. I didn´t freak out too much because I’ve missed a week complete and you guys only roasted me a little bit.
Anyways so this P-day has been one of the funnest P-days we have ever had. So, a branch President from Phoenix AZ came down to the Chona city to see how his ranch was going. He invited us to come and help him out this morning. So, we all loaded up in his truck and we went out to the ranch. The plan is that this guy wants to sell all of the pigs because he wants to move the ranch to AZ, sell these pigs and buy new ones over there because he doesn´t want to live in MX anymore, So, the plan was to go and castrate Wilber and Porky so that they could get fat and sell good. First step was to chase down oinkers Jr. They are little bullets. He was a little baby about the size of a medium dog. We chased him around a bunch. It´s no joke being a cowboy. We finally cornered him. We all four lined up to block him but you have to have a lot of guts not to break the wall when he comes charging and even more to dive after him. Needless to say, he broke through and got away. So, he finally cornered himself again and the real rancher dude when in and got him. We then each got a leg and took him over to the operation-wheelbarrow-table. That is a real fight. I think that it is easier to contain a drugged up body builder than little oinkers. Anyways we castrated him and let him go. Then we went after fat albert. This was a different fight. He was already in his pen. The Mexican vaquero (Élder Jimenez) went in and lassoed him up. The brother then corned the defeated swine and we trashed caned him in a blue bin. Upside down in the bin we hold on to the legs, I held on to the bin and we finished his family history. That was hard work. So afterwards we went over to the pool and took a breather. Afterwards we went to Burritos Piñon where a little Menonito kept looking at me like I was his cousin or something.
So, this week Wednesday we used up the last bit of gas so we have been bathing with cold water all week but finally today the gas came in the morning so I was looking forward to a nice warm shower to take away the smell of pig. Well the gas came but as our house has no water pressure the water left. After having heating up a bunch of warm water in the boiler I took a cold shower using a bucket. But after all of it, it´s nice not to smell like pig.
So right now, some of the investigators that we taught at the FHE (Family Home Evening) showed up and are right here next to me watching me type. It´s a little bit weird but the good thing is that they can’t read English so they have no idea what I’m saying.
So, what we also did this week was that we went to Big houses, Little annoying Dog. two times this week. We saw a missionary broadcast where they changed up a bunch of things like we don’t have to report as much and we have a freer schedule. Then Saturday we went for a zone conference. It was all really neat.
We also did a Noche de Hogar or family home evening. We played psychologist where you have to figure out what illness everyone has. Like everyone scratches the belly or they all speak in a Spanish accent. They really liked that. The hard thing is that they are not as clever as the Nelson family so it´s not as much fun. Everything has to be super simple. But it was pretty fun.
I think that that is all the fun things that I did this week. Have a great week. Write me.
I’ll send you photos later.
