Week #82-Excuse me, I speak Jive.

Hey mom we had a pretty awesome week! I love going to the temple! It was literally the most stressful thing of all time but I honestly was so happy. I felt like I was in heaven! Anyways I´ll tell you a little bit about it!! 
    So we had to wake up at 4 to get ready and everything and we were supposed to leave at 530 to get to Xela at like 1030 to get ready for the session at 1120. So we get to the church and there were some members out front waiting for us at 5 in the morning! Anyways the bus driver wasn´t there and he usually gets there early! We called him at 530 and the dude had completely  forgotten and we woke him up! So he said that he would be there in an hour! He got there at 7! And we got to Xela at 11:15 and we were late for the session so we had to divide the branch into two groups and some got in for the 11:20 session and the rest of us at 1:00. And we got home at like 8:30 and Martineau almost died in the temple haha! Okay, so,  Martineau sat in front of me and he turns around and asks me if his face was pale and it was! Oh my goodness he looked so white! He almost passed out in the middle of the session and he just slept the rest of the way home haha! I think it was for stress and that he didn´t eat or drink the whole day. 
    Anyways I have to tell you about some members that are seriously so incredible! So there is a 6 year convert named Is! Him and his wife named Lu live like an hour away from the chapel and they go to church every single week. Also Is is blind. Well they woke up at 3 to get to the chapel by 5 just to wait until 7 for the bus! I had to guide Is around the temple with me all day but it was so incredible to see how much faith that guy has! Pastors from other churches always go to his house to try to get him to go to their church and he always just testifies of the Book of Mormon and invites them to church. He is so awesome. it was great to spend the day with him. I didn't get pictures because I had to take him around with me everywhere I went! But it was crazy! And there were like 20 stakes there! I saw a bunch of people from my old areas! it was so cool! But oh my goodness it was the longest session of all time because there were literally 40 old, half dead people in the session. I have no idea why there were so many old people there! It must have been bingo night at the temple or something. 
    Also Hermana M. She is this 95 year old lady whose family literally stuffs her in this little shack because they go to a an evangelica church and they are mad that she is so devoted to our church! Anyways we passed by hermama M house in the morning on the way to the temple and there she was faithfully waiting for us in her Absolute Vodka sweatshirt. It was so funny! We picked her up and threw her in the bus and went off the Xela. So you literally can´t understand a word she says! And she lost her recommend so I had to try to find her ID to try to get all of her information. I found her ID but I thought that it was her husbands because of the picture! But it turns out it was her ID but the picture was just really bad and she looked like a man! Hopefully she forgives me for that. But honestly those members are so faithful and it is so incredible that in Utah we literally have a temple like 5 seconds away from us and a chapel 2 seconds away from us and we don´t go. So crazy. 
      Anyways it was a crazy trip. To explain my caption. When drunk people come up to us they suddenly know how to speak English. the devil has the gift of tongues too. Anyways they were all probably deported from the US and learned a little English but when they start talking to me I just start talking to them in jive, like in the movie Airplane. And they have no idea what I said and get confused and walk away. it is so classic! 
    Our investigators are doing good! We have like 3 that are pretty close to accepting a date! 
The Steelers lost Timmons??!! Awww freak, I love Timmons!
  Anyway, Love you! Have a good week! I'll talk to you next week!
