It's good to study Preach My Gospel. Eduardo lives with his brother across the bridge and works in the city, that's when we talk to him. He got his day off changed to Sunday so that's some good progress. Last preparation day we were walking back from lunch through a little marina and I heard a sound like a firework fuse directamente arriba de mi cabeza (directly over my head), I looked up instinctively and saw a giant purple blue flash in the sky and the loudest boom I have ever heard at the same exact moment, I couldn't even hear my companion yelling I just started running it was so crazy. And this was after the storm it wasn't even raining just completely random.
We did a service project this morning and it wasn't that tiring because I shoveled dirt for 6 months before my mission, but I was dripping sweat it was disgusting I felt like I just got out of the shower, We were helping someone raise the floor level in their house, Saturday we dug them a drainage ditch. Gracias to Angel (his work supervisor in California) I can do all of this stuff fine. So last night we had a really weird experience, we went with the Branch President to dedicate a member's house because he had been having terrible nightmares. We kind of cast an espiritu malo (evil spirit) out, over in Triunfo. When we got to his mom's house next door I felt weird, he said he slept better there but not that good. We studied the scriptures said a prayer and then headed over to his house. When I got close I got goosebumps all over my body. It was the weirdest feeling ever, keep in mind I was also sweating from the heat. We dedicated the home and blessed him I felt better and so did he. Its just crazy, there is a strong evil presence in Puerto and its been here a lot longer than us. Just remember that we always have power over them and they cant hurt us unless we let them.

The other day for lunch I ate Cau-Cau, which is cow stomach. Blah, It felt so weird to eat it but I cleared the bowl, We went to Triunfo for an appointment, We walked like an hour in the heat and when we got to the shack they weren't there, We kinda waited then walked around and contacted people, We met a family and started to teach them, I guess good things can come from setbacks.. The teaching is going good I can tell my Spanish is getting better but it's still got a ways to go, Oliver has a baptism date for the 28th of march.

Gosh I miss Brother Meinzer and all the folks back in the ward.
