So dear elder is the best... I think. I got it at 8 pm on September 9. And today is the 15th, which means I've been out for over a month and have less than a month more in the CCM before I get to go out in the real world for real! AAHH.
I shall start by replying to the dear elder.
The water selling sounds like a great idea. I was thinking at first that it might have been a good idea to spice it up with some crystal light, but then I realized that people were buying based on the cuteness of the sellers and the whole idea of the thing. The product isn't so important, so why increase the production costs?? Very good thinking William and Cooper!
[William and neighbor friend, Cooper, sold cups of ice water from our front lawn at $0.25 each for a
couple of days and earned about $15.00]
Yes there are about to be another 150 or so missionaries coming next week, so some missionaries get to take off after only three weeks here! P.S. 150 more means about a 70% increase in tho total population I think. Right. So three people in my district fall under that category. They are advanced cuz I think their average years studying Spanish in school before coming was around 6. They all speak super great. Which I say because that is a chilean thing. My companion, when I ask him: "¿como está?," says "¡superbien!"
So y'all asked about the flight over here. It was awesome. We had about a fifth of the plane filled with missionaries. People were talking to us all over the place. Unfortunantly, I was surrounded by missionaries, but two people over, Elder Hastings had a long discussion with a lady who was also going to Peru for missionary work, tho with some other christian church. In the back of the plane, a flight attendant was talking to Elder Poston and some others from my old district for quite a while. She said that every time missionaries were on the plane she was working on, she just felt so good, had a feeling in her heart. She even started crying, and gve them all nicknames, Elder Poston was her "Baby Daddy."
