Survivor El Salvador

This week was a pretty standard week.  Every morning for breakfast I make myself a huge bowl of oatmeal. (cheap and filling) and then I add sugar and powdered milk and cinnamon. I´ve found that the more sugar and milk and cinnamon I add the better it tastes! This week I decided to spice it up a bit and I bought some nutmeg. It tastes kind of Christmasy now.

Yesterday I locked the keys in the house.  Benjamin Zipeda helped us break back in. Using 2 brooms, 2 shoelaces, and a piece of telephone line he cut from the house. (it was from an extra coil just hanging outside). He took out the window from the outside and was able to open the door. It was pretty cool actually! He said it was Survivor El Salvador. Fun fact, every door here locks automatically. The people here are really worried about security, (justly so). We live in a gated community. And we have a gate in front of our house, and then the front door that locks automatically. Our roof has razor wire AND barbed wire. Our side walls have broken bottles cemented on top to keep people from climbing over. And every window has a cage over it. And our front yard is all thorny plants. But even all that wasn´t enough to keep us out!

The picture is of Benjamin.  We ate dinner at his house on Saturday. It has been really cool seeing his family change. And being a part of it. Probably the coolest part of my mission so far has been his family. They were telling us how grateful they are for what we´ve done for them. I have such a strong testimony of the Atonement, and what it can do for us.

Have a great week!
