So this week was interesting. We had some tropical storms this whole week, nothing terrible, just tons of rain, some flooding in parts, some mudslides in parts. Luckily I live in the center of the city, so I was safe. But it had been so bad and they had upped the warning to a red emergency that yesterday, they cancelled church, and wouldn't you know... Didn't rain a drop. Too funny! Anyway, it was a red level warning and they told everyone to stay in, and they did. There was not a soul in the street, at all! No cars, minus the buses that were running... That were empty. So strange. Anyway, it was a long boring day in missionary life yesterday.
I'll include a video of our morning, it's funny, I think. I did intercambios with the hermanas from Telde this week. I was with Hermana Campillo, she is serving with Hermana Judd. She is a native from the south of Spain. It was a good day, we had some lessons and then contacted and had English classes and noche de hogar. It was fun. It poured while we were contacting, so we just stuck it out in the rain because we were already soaked and who was going to let us in their house like that? So, we walked in the rain and contacted the occasional person that walked by. We were soaked for the rest of the night, but it was for sure memorable. After noche de hogar, I found a baby lizard in the hallway of the church.... You can probably imagine how much I loved that. So I called the elders to come pick it up and take it outside. Elder Maughan then proceeded to chase me around the church with it. So mean! And it's tail fell off, so what does he do, throws it at me. It was something I would've expected from one of my brothers... I guess that just explains how close this district is. So when we went to Madrid last, we spent pday with Hermana Pack, right? When she picked us up, she took us to the mission home and fed us some bread pudding. Bread pudding, right, that doesn't sound terribly wonderful. Man, was I wrong. It was stinking delicious! So, she sent us the recipe this week and we made it. Well, the topping was this white chocolate sauce, so we go to make it, but only have green colored white chocolate.
