This week has been good! Nothing amazing, but good stuff is always happening around here:)
My companion´s chickinguya is pretty much gone, so that´s great! She luckily never got the body and joint pain, just the skin problems. But dumb chickinguya is EVERYWHERE. Seriously. Everyone´s got it. Supposedly it´s hit the southern parts of the US, but the mission doctor thinks it´ll get taken care of before it spreads.
So we´re working with these two girls, Manuela and Maria. They´re daughters of 2 ward members that were living in the campo but now are here and we´re teaching them and helping them prepare for baptism. Manuela´s 10 and Maria´s 12. Probrecita Manuela was in the hospital for 4 days this week hooked to an IV. She had chickinguya, dengue and an infection. ALL 3! But we went to the hospital and just talked with the two girls for a while. She was happy to see us and told us about the entire movie of The Life of Pi. Ha. And then we shared a message of course and gave them stickers.
We had no food in the house this week and bought 50 mango. 50. And only for like $2.50 US dollars. Not too shabby!
Aaaand I got a letter from Hermana Courtney Cox in Argentina! She wrote me in Spanish and it was really good and sounds like she´s doing really well:)
¨We will all face fear, experience ridicule, and meet opposition. Let us- all of us- have the courage to defy the concensus, the courage to stand for principle... Courage becomes a living and an attractice virtue when it is regarded not only as a willingness to die manfully but also as the determination to decently.¨ -Thomas S. Monson
