Version 2.16.15- "That One That's Not Overly Exciting" Edition 2.16.15

Area: Yunguyo    Comp: Elder Salas

Dear Everyone,

-Carnavales! It's actually a lot tamer than I thought. There's this unspoken rule that guys can only get girls wet, and vice versa, and the biggest threat are these packs of 10-15 Teacher-aged boys, which means I'm essentially safe. Only one person threw a water balloon at me all week, and they had terrible aim, so so far I'm doing good! The biggest thing about Carnavales is that everyone's drunk. It makes it really hard to teach them.

-We were walking around on Friday, and we ran into this elderly widow from the branch, sitting on the side of the street, horribly sick. I'm not sure why, but she had decided not to mention it to anyone. Within a half an hour we'd got her medicine, food, and we gave her a blessing, and on Saturday she was 100% better.

-We had activities all day on Saturday. Literally all day. We had a break of about an hour. They were successful activities though!

-We invited one of our recent converts to come to the Saturday activities, one of which was a sports activity. She told us she couldn't come, because, "I'm terrified of soccer balls."

Anyways, not a super exciting week, but still! And next week is Transfers! Have a great week everyone!
