3/9/2015 - Culiacan Letter & Pics

Pepper Spray, Bowling, Lasagna in a bowl

Hey Everyone,

  So this week has been quite eventful and fun. Me and my companion have been working in our Folder of the Area trying to update everything and lessons and just trying to get our map all dotted with stickers as well, oooh super long and just great. Its amazing how much easier it is with everything up to date and in order. Oh so for the past couple of weeks our water in the shower has been nothing but icy cold freezing, and lets just say that in the morning can be really tough to get going, brrr, super cold. Anyway, so we have decided that if we wanted hot water we just heat it up. So for the past couple of weeks we have been taking showers from a 5 gallon bucket with hot water, super great, and at least the water is hot. 
     So yesterday something funny happened in church, someone had sprayed pepper spray in the hallway, and it was really interesting what happened.  My companion and i were in Relief Society and we received a couple calls from our ward mission leader and so we left and found out he was looking for his wife so we went to find our mission leaders wife and we saw a sister coughing and almost gagging outside the bathrooms and then the sister we were looking for was coughing and gagging as well. My companion handed the phone to the sister and then i started to cough and so did my companion, the spray was so intense that we had to leave the building to breath fresh air, to help us to stop coughing. Then i remembered the primary kids, they were down that exact hallway where the pepper spray was, i looked at my companion and said, "the children!" We ran down the hallway coughing and gagging and you could hear the little children coughing as well, it was intense, we opened the doors and all the children ran out of the building. We evacuated everyone and we tried to evacuate the Relief Society but they would have nothing to do with evacuation and so they continued on with their lesson. Thankfully they didn't have the spray down their hallway. It was awful. 

   Today we went and played bowling with our district and it was great! we also came home and made lasagna in a bowl and then sat down in our hammocks and ate our lasagna, super good! 
  So this week was great, we had some ups and downs and we also had some funny moments, the family that we have been teaching didn't come to church this week and we were really sad i just hoped that they would have come but they didn't anyway we just keep going and have faith that all will be well and be grateful for the little things that we have in our life. I love you all thanks for your letters, look forward to hearing from you next week. love you all.

Always Happy,
Hermana Newmeyer
