so, ive been waiting for an hour (if you want to be specific, longer) for the internet to work. my darling dearest wonderful companion had compassion on me (and my mother) and let me use her computer to send a quick email. so quick it is! im not even going to bother sending more than two fotos because these computers are ancieeeeent, hno aldo (our usual lugar) was closed today. sad.
MY GRANDPA is amazing. i love you! thank you for going to the temple so often and loving your/our family so much!

EMILIO & KARLYN. i love you both and have been thinking a lot of you this week! i saw someone who looked exactly like you emilio, it was weird. stick with karlyn, shes good for you!
people know where we live. sometimes people that we dont even know. apparently it isnt hard to remember /hear about where the only choqa (quechua for gringa, basically) lives.. i asked hna ipanaquè if we could get dropped off int he concordias down the streett and walk, hopefully that will help for security purposes. :)
i ate a staple the other day. obvsiously not on purpose but i gues that shows my apetite

i bought a bag of nuts the other day, trying to eat healthier, turned out to be the equivalent of honey smacks. not real nuts. jeffrey limary youd be happy.
lightning. lit up the ENTIRE mountain range /horizon last night. i was in love.

hno fredy H remembered and waited for us for our cita. hes an inactive RM, a miracle we found him, i have hope for him.
hno David, our neighbor, has a LDM and told us he was reading it. he talked about how the part of nephi returning to his parents touched him. miracles. we met with him and his wife NeLinda. theyre golden.

the man who accused me of witchcraft once upon a time smiled when we saw him/said hi, and talked to us for a little bit.
i was able to ignore my pain/tears on a particularly hard day and lose myself in the work. thats a real thing, losing yourself in the work. and its so easy. my problems are so small compared to everyone elses...
weve been doing everything we can to help hna arlete be baptized, but we still dont have permission. the spirit told me that it is up to her at this point. she needs to really show heavenly father this is what she wants. i pray that she has the faith to do so.

hna liz gave me a rose from her garden. so sweet but not as sweet as she is.

hno javier is home from the hospital! such a miracle! hes on bedrest im pretty sure but compared to before, SO much better! were hoping to meet with him wednesday.
hna ipanaquè had the respect to tell me that missionaries are talking about me behind my back to her. it defintely caught me off guard. she also told me that she tells them not to talk about me behind my back and especially not to her. so much respect for her. loyalty is big for me. satan has been attacking our companionship lately but im so grateful for her love for me.
