Well this week has been filled with a lot of screams and stoning. So the bugs have officially started to come out. And somehow, I am always the one to find them and the one that needs to capture them. But thankfully another Hermana (Hermana Lopez) in our house is always willing to kill it after I have captured it. We have had three frogs (baby frogs, so not too bad) a cocroach, and a scorpion (it was sooooo gross! It was like five or six inches). But I am still alive. Anytime I feel like anything might be touching me I literally have a panic attack. I always think it is another scorpion. Our method of killing the cocroach and scorpion was taking them outside then finding large stones to kill them. So far it has worked. Hopefully it keeps working.. well hopefully these bugs stop finding a way into our house! Luckily this morning all we had was a butterfly. I can handle butterflies :)We had the baptism of little Jose. Another beautifully stressful baptism. He is 13 years old and we have been teaching him for three weeks. We had his date set for this Saturday, but on Wednesday we went to go tell him we are probably going to need to move his date so that we can finish teach him everything. He literally was having a panic attack. So we told him if he wanted to get baptized this Saturday we needed to visit him twice every day. Yep. So we did it, and we had his baptism, and it was beautiful. My poor companion was dying of sickness during the whole thing, and she has been in bed for two days! Luckily I have found lots and lots of cleaning and laundry to do to keep myself busy. I have washed every pair of shoe and close to every article of clothing. It was probably a blessing in disguise because the Lord knew it was time for some spring cleaning :) I found something in my suitcase that still smelled like home and some gum from the States. Probably some of the tender mercies of the Lord. This morning I woke up and I didn't feel like dying of exhaustion, and I was so confused, and for a minute I thought "am I back in the States?" Then I realized it was because yesterday I hadn't walked miles through the dusty streets of Honduras. I think this it was the first time in six months I have felt refreshed after waking up. But I am praying for a miracle so that tonight and tomorrow we can go out and keep working, because lets be honest, a missionary in a house starts going a little crazy after a while.
Hugs and kisses.
