8 month mark!

Oy vey! I can't believe I will have been out for 8 months TOMORROW!!! Time has FLOWN by!

Well it happened!!!!! ANA GOT BAPTIZED on SATURDAY!!!! Feb. 19th, 2011! Her dad, Albino (who just got baptized in January) Baptized her!!! It was so awesome! I loved it! and I'm sure she did too! Then she received the gift of the Holy Ghost on Sunday in church of course. She was just Beaming! We had a party after the baptism too and Hermana Salazar and Ana had made a big pot of chicken Mole!!! YUMMY!!! It was sooooooo good! Mole is my favorite.

Well something embarrassing happened the other day that I feel bad for. We were taking the other sisters to their apartment to drop them off from district meeting. We parked real fast.... cause when nature calls, ya gotta go!!!! Right?! Well we stopped for the bathroom break and were ready to start the day..... When we walked outside our car was being hooked on to the tow truck! AHHHHH! I know, I know! terrible! So we ran and talked to him thinking that by some miracle he could drop it for free. Well that didn't happen. I had to pay $89 on my debit card to drop it. BUT the good news is that we caught him because it would've cost like $400 or $500 to get it from the impound! Our wonderful, but maybe a little too nice of mission president doesn't make us pay for stupid mistakes like that.....I guess he pays for it?? I know! Crazy! So, I'm thankful....but sorry! But the funny part of the story is that I gave the guy a card and said, "Well this is for you!!!" ..and he was like " Ah, now you're making me feel bad!" He didn't like his job, but we's his job! So we invited him to go to the website and then he had to go.

Another "fun" story...oy! A week or so ago the whole district went over to eat at a member's house. It was goood! We are always grateful for those that share their food with us. Well turns out that the whole night, the whole district was wiped out and kept making trips to the bathroom!! No one felt good. But we lived! The many joys of new cultures and the mission life. I just thought it was funny though how the whole district was down and out.. oh well. It was GOOD food! I'm fully converted to spicy Mexican food! Anything else will be bland when I come home. Ok maybe not everything else.

Well I love you all and hope that I can get some pictures in the mail to you from the baptism. It really was just so amazing.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Love ,
Hermana Dunn
