It was bit of a long week! Not having your P-day until a Thursday is pretty exhausting but well worth it for the opportunity to go to the temple. So, it has been a great day!
There isn't too much to report this week, just work as usual. We've been looking really hard for new investigators. Most of them have come from references from recent converts which is amazing, but we've also been knocking on a lot of doors lately with little success. We contact and contact and although people accept another cita, they're never there. Little disheartening, but hopefully we're planting the seeds. The important thing is to keep working!
Trying to think of anything else interesting to share. Well, I did eat a couple of live insects at an investigator's house. That sure was an interesting experience.The bugs are called jumiles. They fly, have little hearts on their backs, and for some crazy reason people like to eat them...often times alive. They have a powerful aroma. Kinda like old furniture or something. And guess what! They taste like the smell of old furniture, too! They also got a little kick of spice to 'em. I don't even want to think about where that favor would come from. It was gross, but not terribly gross because I ate another one. I captured the experience on video, but I've tried uploading videos before without much luck. I'll see what I could do. That definitely satisfied my desire of eating disgusting, exotic delicasies. Not for Colledge. He ate tacos of cow eye a couple days later. I didn't quite feel up to eye tacos. My tongue was still numb from the jumiles (not sure if the feeling of having your mouth numbed at the dentist was a normal or healthy side-effect, but I'm still breathing so we're good). I still have plenty of time to eat eye, brain, nose, intestines, and whatever else Mexico has to offer.
Short and sweet, but a good week overall. Thanks everyone for all your love and support! I love you!!!
