My week went well. To start off, update on the family Romero Davila. Brother Enrique Romero got his birth certificate on Tuesday!!! So now they only need a couple other papers and they will be ready for marriage. Some of those papers include bills. They are very poor and are entering into their older ages which mean limited work opportunities. The ward planned an activity in one day and brought it to pass in 3 (sorry for the scriptural wording, I don`t remember how to say came to pass in normal terms... kinda embarrassing right?). They grilled up 11 chickens and sold 44 ¨polladas¨ Grilled chicken potatoes and salad. As a result the gain 265 soles (about 100 dollars) which is more than enough to help out the family in their goal to get married. We are obviously not going to pay for the whole marriage. The family has learned the principle of sacrifice and have put in more than their part, and now have seen that the ward is there to work with them in order to accomplish their physical and spiritual goals.
The pictures! James Micheal is huge! and sunburnt :) did he write his name and that he rocks? William... Where`s your missionary name tag? I think we´re both in the same boat if you know what I mean... we´re kinda chubby :/ and the house looks great! Is the floor going to stay just painted or will carpet go down in the future?
To answer the P.S. I love BBQ pork, pretzel salad (the really good cheesecake with strawberry jello and pretzel crust stuff, you know what I mean) Company potatoes with looooooooooooots of cheese, and Homemade burnt almond fudge ice-cream. I know right, sound pretty good. I love ¨muddy buddies¨ and the cookies that you make that are like big Oreos but way better. All of that just came to mind right now, and it will be delicious!!!
Thanks a ton for all your love and support. Don`t worry about me, I have a lot... a ton to do this week and next. I`ll try and send pictures, don`t know if Sister Blunck put the picture she took of me this week with president on their blog, if so enjoy :) Love you tons!
