1st week in Puerto Plata and PICS!!

About my week~

Wednesday after we wrote we went to the church for an activity and played bingo. There were a lot of members that showed up for the activity I was really surprised.

Thursday we walked to La Sirena,  it is a grocery store here and it is right next to the ocean. Sadly I did not have my camera to take pictures.
Friday we had a English class with all of the latino missionaries. It was a lot of fun.  The elders in my area are really funny! We also had a noche de hogar at a menos activos house that was really good and really spiritual.
Saturday we helped an hna in the ward clean her house. Then we ate some really yummy food I don't exactly know what we ate ~but it was good. We then went to 2 baptisms to support a couple of Elders in our zone and then afterwards we were invited to go to a fiesta that was a lot of fun!!
Sunday- church was so different than it is in Bonao. There were tons of people at church. In sacrament meeting there were kids yelling and running around eveywhere. For lunch we went to a members house with the Elders to eat. The food was really good; rice, chicken, and a salad.

Afterwards the Relief Society and us went to visit a member who is in a nursing home. It was a lot of fun and reminded me of Gma Lois. I miss her so much!! Then we had a reunion and went to some citas. Almost all of the citas we went to gave us food. So,  if I have not gained weight yet in the mission it is sure that I will here. :(
Monday we had some amazing citas and they were all with members which was awesome!
Tuesday we had my hardest cita ever! It is so hard teaching someone when you don´t have the spirit in the lesson because they bash everything you say and they don´t want to listen to what you are teaching, and  all they want to do is preach the bible to you. I felt so uncomfortable in this lesson.

However, the rest of our lessons went really great, and we had a noche de hogar too.
Wednesday we went to a members house with a bunch of other missionaries and hung out the house was beautiful and huge (picture below)!! 

My new area is great but it is hard at the same time; not knowing where I am at half the time or the people. Oh , Hna Lizardo is from Honduras. I am learning a lot from her.

I hope you have a great week! Until next week!!
I love you!
