A trip to Xela and getting sick

Hola Familia!!!

This week was has been a very interesting week! Sunday I found out that I was going to be a trainer and that I needed to attend a training meeting in Xela on Tuesday! Also, this week was my first week getting sick, and I just have to say that it was great......not!

So we had a district meeting on Tuesday, before I left for Xela. I went with another missionary from my zone, who will be training. We didn't have time to eat lunch so we were just going to buy some snacks and stuff. But on the bus a delivery man was trying to sell pizza, called pizza real, which I have eaten before. I thought that it would be safe, and not thinking to much I ate it! haha

The meeting in Xela was good, and after I even had the opportunity to eat at Wendys! The part when things turn for the worse, is when we were headed back through the canyon to Huehue. I thought I was just car sick, but right when we got to the terminal, I threw up in a bag. I thought it would be only a one time thing, but when we got to the other elders house, where my companion was, I threw up again!!! I was super weak and couldn't walk or anything! And we couldn't stay the night at their house, and there weren't any buses running late at night, so I would have to walk home.........like 3 miles!!!

Before we left I said a quick prayer, just for the strength to get back to my house. When we walked outside, we saw our ward mission leader and his wife driving up the hill and they stopped and asked if we needed a ride and I was like, uhhh I'm dying yes please! I just thought it was super neat that Heavenly Father answered my prayer. I know that he always listens and answers our prayers, and usually he answers our prayers through the service or help of other people.

I ended up throwing up 9 times, and by that point I wanted to throw up one more time, just to say I threw up 10 times haha! Everyone here was really nice and tried helping me. I probably took like 5 different things, but the thing that really helped, was what Hermana Alejandra cooked up. It tasted disgusting, but I felt better after!

So tomorrow I will be headed to Xela to pick up my son (my new companion)! And this time when the guy is selling pizza, I wont even think about it haha! Maybe this time when I go to Wendys I won't throw up the food on the bus. I'm sure your week has been better than mine haha! Les Amo.

I also forgot to talk about December 7th, day of the devil. Everyone does fireworks, even big ones like mortars. So you already know that I was all over that. You also make a stuffed dummy devil and you burn it and throw fireworks at it.

Cuetes or firecrackers!
