Elder Jordan Saunooke ~ Y Como Estan Asi? ~ 9/19/16

Hi everyone!! Well this week has been pretty low key and we have had our fair share of sicknesses but it wasnt me this time! My comp got sick and had to go get a shot in the butt at the doctors offices, and on the way there it poured so hard and we got drenched. My pants changed into jeans because they were so wet. When it rains here you can basically see Noah and his ark because it floods.
We did a super cool service project with Bianca´s family making some sort of papermache  movie set. Her brothers in law work with styrofoam to build projects and are contracted everywhere to build stuff, so we went over to help them. They are the other two chel that are with me and Elder Christiansen in the pictures I sent. 
We had a ward talent show night this week, and it was so fun to see all the young kids dressed in traditional mayan clothing and trying their hardest to go and dance. We went with a taxi driver that contacted us, and told us he wanted to change his life. He told us the stuff that have happened to him and man some people have it hard. His family kicked him out, and burned his clothes and he has an addiction to alcohol. He went with us all afternoon to our appointments and stuff as our personal taxi driver just because he wanted to be with us and truly change. He bought us some juice even though he hadnt eaten in like 2 or 3 days. We really dont realize how blessed we are sometimes.
On Friday we had our zone conference and we wore our fake mustaches and yes i bought the biggest sombrero i could find. It was fun except the new rules we have... which include but are not limited to, not eating sugar cereal, and not using the word como unless it is actually needed. That was an interesting zone conference. We had a baptismal interview afterwards, and on Saturday the other elders (our zone leaders) had the baptism for the wife of a member that is no longer living in our area but is one of the coolest guys ever. His name is Amir and he is a stud. His wife is very sweet and has really spiritually progressed since I first met her.
I really do love sundays here, and partially its because I am in air conditioning for three hours, but I also love being in church honestly:)
I hope you guys all have a great week and I love you!
