Sorry about the email last week – I don’t know what happened to it. For a summary (pictures below), we went to the Gilagetza – a big festival they have here and that’s about 4 hours of dancing so that was a cool experience to see more of Oaxaca.

This week was an interesting start. I was sleeping Tuesday morning and I woke up to my bed moving; it was an earthquake. Right when I woke up I ran outside the house and down the stairs and the other missionaries that live with us also got out. We all ran into the street and once we there the shaking stopped. It was crazy – I thought it wouldn’t stop and it was going to take the house down, but everything was ok.
Work wise we had a better week. We are seeing progress in our area and with the investigators coming to Church. We had more investigators in Church this week than we have in the past three transfers, so that was really exciting. The members got really pumped when they saw everyone there, so that was a good feeling.
Here (in one of the pictures below) is a fruit that I ate. It looks super weird, but is really good and juicy. It looks like it came out of the sea or something, but they were good. The other picture is of sugar cane with chile and lime that was also good. I also ate some sushi too! There was a restaurant that sells sushi, and I couldn’t resist, so i had to go in and order a roll. It was only 74 pesos – super cheap; se llama ‘Philadelphia Special’ and it was good – I liked it.
Well this week I start with the 4th quarter and I like the progress I can see and the goals I have set. It’s going to be fun. And I hope you can solve the whole social thing with the late night talks – those are always good.
Love you all!
