So this week was a good one!!!!!! Let me just tell you. On Tuesday we all had baptized in our district so we got to go contact in the zoo!!!!!!!!!!! It's in our area and so my district and I all went! Um it was so great. I saw a lion pounce at my friend and everything was just great. hahaha. There were tigers and lions and there were not bears but water buffalo and monkeys and panthers and everything. It was awesome!!!!! Then we had to go work with the new sisters that were coming in.Tthere were 9 girls from the states and one from Guatemala. It was soooo fun because my hija came and we all worked in a huge park and gave away Books of Mormon and everything!!!! I even met Haley Frodsham from St George! So awesome, she is a cute girl and very nice person!!! So then we just all had a blast.

Anyways, on Wednesday, YES! did it rain here or what! Not like how it did in Tays mission but I forgot my umbrella that day and so we were waiting under a building for 2 hours and then it was getting worse so we called a taxi and he actually brought us home for free. It was crazy but we got absolutely soaked! And then I got a cold. But it was all good I am getting better. Ok so then, on Saturday I was fasting and I was like I cannot handle this, my throat hurts so bad I need some water, but I was like no, I will not break my fast. So then I just sucked on some coughdrops all day. We fasted as a companionship that we could find a family to baptize this month, then on Sunday morning we walked outside to go to church and a family came up to us and said are you missionaries? We said yes and introduced ourselves. The guy said, we need help, we have problems with alcohol and yesterday we both drank and after we were talking and said what are we doing, this is not a happy life we want to change. So then they told us they want to learn about our church and want to change their lives. My comp and I were soooo happy. I know that because we fasted we were blessed. It was so awesome.

Well, yesterday we had a big activity with the whole mission. It was SO fun! We had a spiritual message by our President and then we were split off into groups and we played ultimate frisbee, baseball, kickball, and soccer. I was one of the only girls who got down and actually played. The Elders were all impressed at my skills. hahahaha. It was soooo fun. Then we had a catored lunch and then we did our zone talents. We did David and Goliath, it was sooooo funny! We all just laughed and had a good time. Then Pres. showed a video and I cried because he is going to leave. It was sad. Then we took tons of pics and came back to work. It was a blast!!!!!!! I saw all my friends and got to catch up with all. They all call us the assistents to the President just because we are the sister leaders, it's so funny. But anyways, I hope all is well. I know the church is true. I love you all soooo much! Thanks for everything! love Court
