Week 5 of the field!

So guess what??? i survived 2 more earth quakes!!! oh yeah!! :) rockin it down here!  the one was a 3 pointer up north and we didn´t feel that but then the second was in the east and that one was a 5 and it was after midnight and i felt it so i woke up and was like whoa was that an earth quake! so i was like dude! yeah he didn´t answer! he was asleep still! so i was like maybe its just my crazy brain freakin me out! yeah we left with the branch president that night and hes like oh did you guys feel the earthquakes! yeah i´m not crazy! :) haha but yeah just thought you should know that! but yeah crazy foods for this week! juice made out of rice and pineapple! yeah not to bad but not to good! and my crazy but favorite food i tried this week was....... Fried Intestines! :) yeah i tried them and they were good! one of our old investigators owns a food place and we went to go get a chimi one night and he had them hangin up so we asked what they were and he´s like oh they´re intestines and elder bittons like oh wow and the guys like here let me fry you up some and elder bitton was like ok! i was like dude your crazy! guy fried us up some and brought them out and elder bitton just started going to town and he´s like man these are super good! so i had to try one and just see for myself plus be able to say i had intestines! so i tried it and it was way good! tasted like fried jerky! :) yeah i know you´re probably upset at me but oh well! it´s passed now! oh ok yeah so apparently everyone knows about the supposed hospital visit! yeah the atm is at the hospital so i take money out there so it says hospital! i didn´t go in to the hospital for any reason! if i go to the hospital its for a very bad reason that you will know about before emails! you don´t go to the hospital here! so yeah no worries! haha uhhh yeah what else??? oh we had an exchange with the assitants to the president! yeah the one came with me and elder bitton for a day and the other went with our Zone leaders! yeah that never happens! oh well it was pretty cool! we got two more fechas (baptismal dates) this week! and hopefully one tonight! heres the update on our investigators. This week has been a great week! We recieved lots of references! They are helping us out a lot! The members are doing great at helping us! Our three new fechas are through members! Paulina is a girl of 18 who is a reference from one of our less active members who wants to change her life and wants to be baptized. She sets up appointments every day if she can. She is very excited to learn more about the gospel. Jorddy is still wanting to learn more about the gospel but we´re still trying to get appointments with him and getting him to keep commitments. Estefani is 9 and is excited to be baptized but is taking a little longer to learn everything.
We have more investigators but they don´t have fechas! uhh what else??? oh i´m getting new pants today! here people make there own clothes so elder bitton had a guy who made me some pants and then he´s been fixing my shirts so they fit me way better! so yeah still need some tide to go pens! i can not keep white shirts clean! uhhh yeahhhhh i don´t know what else to put i think thats it for the week! Go Giants for the superbowl! Stef and Beau your car looks awesome and you definitly should have gotten it earlier when i could drive it! when i get back i´m gonna drive it! uhhh yeah life is good here! people here are treating us awesome! spanish is coming slowly but surely! OH!!! Yeah important thing! we got 24 hour light! we got it totally illegally but we really didn´t have a say! it was our land lords choice but we´re ok with that! candle light planning is gone! finally! :) but yeah i am pretty sure that is it for the week! love you all! keep me updated on life! :)
