My comp has 10 days left. He is working hard and we have had a lot of great lessons. One investigator in particular is golden. We found her while we were looking for her brother. She is going for a master’s degree this fall in Chemistry. She loves to read and learn. She takes notes on her reading, has great questions and plans to be baptized in a few weeks. She had some issues her first week at church when she found that the bishop has to be male. So, we had to take a whole hour to talk through that one, ha but she is really good humored about it.
We have seen a bit of wild life here in Torreon. One man was playing with a Tarantula on the side of the road. Then a couple days later on the same street we saw a family all peeping out of their door looking at a spot near their house. I went over to inspect and saw a tiny little snake. They were terrified and I told them to hand me a broom. They thought the snake would strike if I tried to remove it. This was not the Mexico I had seen in movies like Zorro. But we took care of it so all can sleep well. They are all calm around these hundreds of dogs that wander the streets and make me paranoid. The mutts seem to have a taste for gringos. But, when bugs and other small creatures show up there is widespread panic.
It only rains here a couple times a year; but when it rains, it pours. Seriously, it was sunny and hot one moment and then grape sized water droplets began to pelt us. The streets were all completely flooded for two days. There isn’t a good drainage system in place so we had to take huge detours to get anywhere. Also my poor clothes while drying on the wire outside took a beating. It wasn’t sunny for several days so when they finally dried they smelled horrible.
This is the only kind of mustache I am capable of growing:
Love you all,
