This week was a little tough because my companion is sick with parasites, so it was pretty hard to do anything.  We had to go to the hospital like three times, so we didn't accomplish much.  And on top of that, this week is one of the hardest because everyone is going to leave town or carry around a giant statue of Jesus.

On the bright side, there is a family that we started teaching last week that came to church.  They are a great family.  The picture I sent you with the big hat was at their house.  They like giving us food too.  Saturday we went and they gave us lunch before the lesson and after they gave us more food.  And Sunday the same thing.  We passed by in the morning to bring them to church and they gave us pancakes and invited us to lunch afterwards.  They are amazing.  The dad talks a ton though.

Hopefully, my companion will get better this week because we were doing so good.  We have to go back to do some tests this week, but hopefully after that they can get him medicine for the parasites and we can get back to work.
Oh by the way, I wrote a letter, so I'll get it sent this week.  We really didn't do all that much this week.  The best part was the family we taught.  They are the Godinez Perez family.  One thing that's different here is that everyone has two last names,while us gringos only have one.
The pictures of the beach trip are awesome.  It's always funny telling people about the coast at my house.  Nobody believes that it really is cold.  The size of the redwood trees are fun to tell people about too, that's one of my favorite places.  I'm going to have to get used to all the new people when I get back.  I guess I'm kind of used to getting used to people now.  I'm not used to them being so white though.  I'm one of the whitest people here.
Other than my companion being sick, things have been going well.  I've been doing pretty well, every once in a while my stomach will feel bad, but that's pretty normal here.
I'm lucky right now because we have a small district and I don't have to call many people, but I still don't have a lot of time.  I always sleep like a rock, but I've been pretty tired.  We walk a lot, and a lot is up and down hill.  Well keep praying hard, because this week right before Easter nobody is home and it's a hard one.  But I guess my companion chose a good week to get sick.
I'll keep taking pictures, and I'll try to take a few videos too.  Oh and I think I'm going to need to buy some new clothes.  All of mine are getting old.  Some of them are alright, but a few of them aren't doing so great anymore.
Well, I'm out of time.  Thanks for everything.  I loved the pictures.
