I am glad that Mike Mclaws came by to drop off that picture for you guys. I didn´t want to give him anything big because I figured he wasn´t going to have a lot of space or anything. I am glad he could tell you a little about my mission and everything. I will definitely tell you a lot of stories when I get home.
Well this week has been kind of a crazy week. We had a meeting this last wednesday with the mission president and the other zone leaders which turned out pretty cool. Our new mission president is super nice and knows a lot of stuff. I guess he has taught religion for like 36 years or something like that. He his a great teacher. We also had a good council too and we set some sweet goals for the mission. I am really excited to see how everything works out.
This last saturday we also had interviews with President Thurgood as well. I talked with his wife a lot too while i was waiting for my companion´s interview and she doesn´t know like any spanish haha. I imagine that its pretty tough for her sometimes. She is super nice though. My interview with President Thurgood was pretty nice and chill. It was good getting to know him better. He is a super nice guy as well and very peaceful. I am glad I got to know him before I leave.
Well I got kind of a crazy story for you guys, it was kind of weird. So yesterday we were in church and there is this 19 year old kid named Alejandro who is semi inactive and kind of struggling right now I guess you could say with the church. So he was acting really weird in Elders qorum and kepting like taping his feet kind of loud and someone turned around and told him politely to quiet down and he just kind of stared and got kind of mad and then he left and came back. He was sitting right by me and he turns to me and is like hey can you give me a blessing. I said yes and grabbed my companion and told the bishop we were going to give him a blessing. So we start walking with him to an empty room to give him a blessing. I could tell something was wrong with him and he was kind of out of it. I asked for his full name and he like struggled to remember it kind of. So I gave the first part of the blessing and my companion starts giving him the second part and he like started laughing but like creepy laughing and he stands up during the blessing and is like its too late. Then he grabs the folding chair and closes it really hard and I felt like oh crap this isn´t good and I moved closer to the door and he then like picks up the chair like he was going to hit us! I was like crap and he just like screams like run elders! So i grabbed my companions arm and pulled him out of the room with me and we shut the door as he threw the chair and then he punched the door so hard that he knocked the little window bracket out. We ran and grabbed the bishop and his mom. They helped kind of bring him back out of whatever he was in and I grabbed my stuff while they talked to him. He then just hugged us and was crying and telling us he didn´t have any control and that he didn´t want to hurt us.
We helped him to the car and his mom was like pleading for us to come with her to the hospital so we got in the car and took him to the hospital in a nearby town. He was pretty out of it. Turns out he has like skitzophrenia (I don´t know how to spell that) and we went through every with him in the hospital. He was telling the doctor that he kept having like seeing things. It was super weird. We helped him through everything though and they gave him some medicine and shots and stuff. I guess they didn´t have money for the medication and thats why he hadn´t been taking any. But he should be alright now. I guess its happened a lot of times before. It was super weird though.
The hospital was horrible and looked like from a horror movie or something. It was just super run down with bad lighting and pretty dirty. It was kind of spooky in there. I hope I never have to go there. It was werid.
But yeah that was a really weird experience we had yesterday. haha Its never a dull moment thats for sure. We are doing alright but it kind of wierded us out a little.
Anyways today we just kind of had a chill p day and cleaned the pension up pretty good. It was nice and I slept a little bit but not too much. Things are going good and I can´t believe only 9 weeks left!! Well I hope I didn´t weird you guys out too much with that story haha. Well I better run but I hope you guys have a good week!! I love you guys a ton!!! Hasta luego!
con amor x 180 zillion,
