Monday- Had a great P day, I was able to write everyone and have some good time on the computer. We went and checked our our new house as well! The house needs a ton of fixing up, there are not many functioning light bulbs and out of the 5 bathrooms, there is only 1 shower head, and it is broken...dreadfully cold showers everyday. Tonight we had dinner with some recent converts, they live in a very small home and are very humble, but they are so cute together. They work in the feira (market) , so the food was delicious :) Meat cooked with so many delicious vegetables, fresh fruit juice, rice, beans of course, and a great salad. It was great.

But the highlight of the move was in the night when I rode in the Scooby Doo type van of Brother Jose Alvez. With the van packed to the brim, I "sat" as awkwardly as possible, trying to squeeze in the van. I was half sitting, half standing; it was a super tight squeeze, super condensed and super claustrophobic. But the best part was the trunk wouldn't shut, so I had to hold on to the trunk so it wouldn't open and all our stuff fly out. The only thing to grab onto to hold the trunk closed was a piece of barbed wire... I have no idea who though that was a good idea. We had to go up an about quarter mile hill, straight up vertical, with everything in the van trying to slide out and me holding the trunk closed with one hand, clenching the barbed wire, holding on for dear life. I was dying, it was so tough, but if I let go, me and all our stuff would tumble out and get ran over by the car behind us. It took me so much mental and physical power to hold on. We arrived at the house with my hand bloody, and my forearm absolutely fried. I was so fatigued and gave it my all, oh yeah, the funny part was that I had to do that same thing 4 more times... We slept in the new house and I slept horrible, it was so hot and I was convinced the house was haunted.
Pascua, first person that Elder Hunt taught that was baptized
Thiago, a 10 yr old boy Elder Hunt taught, on his baptism day
Unfortunately, I ate myself sick, and was on the verge on puking for hours. I said that I was not going to eat a single thing for 2 days. Then we went to a members house and they had made us a ton of food...to not be rude, we had to eat more. I pushed it down, but it was a bad idea. After, out walking to the next appointment, I threw up.
Family Home Evening, hosted by Elder Hunt and Medina
After we hosted a great family home evening at the house of a member mother and investigator daughter who is about 16. We invited all the youth of the ward to help fellowship her. We got an AMAZING turnout!! It was so successful. We then headed home and I really did not feel well. I had a horrible nights sleep; I was so hot and then so cold, and in the middle of the night, my bed broke and my mattress and I fell...I woke up feeling horrible.
Elder Hunt is very sick
