- Of course, a night this good has to be followed by a day not so good. We had parked our car in Celfia's neighborhood for a few hours that night and realized in the morning before church that our bumper had been hit and our gas siphoned. Thank you Satanas. But it was all good, we just went on bike all day. Satan wasn't quite through with us though and when it got dark, Hermana Mathis' tire popped big time and we had to walk to all of our appointments and back home after the last one haha. It was pretty great. So yesterday was pretty fun. We started teaching a 19 year old from Peru named Renzo and its when I teach people my same age that I realize just how weird of a life I'm living right now. He couldn't get over the fact that we don't watch movies, have boyfriends, listen to music, and just go around teaching people all day long. "Do you have any friends?" ...."umm..., looking at Hermana Mathis awkwardly... waiit do we? I don't think soo...I guess you're my friend but you kind of have to be... so I don't really know how to answer this question". That's how the conversation went haha. I'm forgetting that spending 24/7 doing missionary work as a 19 year old girl isn't exactly what you would consider normal. And from an outsider's view, it doesn't seem to make sense why we are so happy doing what we do. According to the world, I shouldn't be happy not listening to the latest music, or going to dances with my friends. I shouldn't be happy when Im teaching people about church instead of going out on dates. I shouldn't be happy spending all day going from person to person trying to invite them to come unto Christ when I could be going to movies, sleeping or hanging out with friends. But I am and I know why I am. And it's a happiness that no matter how many times I try to explain it to people, I can't quite do it because it's something you have to experience to understand. I hope everyone has a great week this week, pray that everything goes well with Celfia's baptism this Saturday!!
