games and popped tires

I dont have any idea what happened but here we are in the middle of nowhere and now I dont have a bike.  so now we walk. oh boy!

the second video:
 is a game we have played many night during FHE.  It is good to see Trevor has passed along a Scoubes tradition.  The elder has selected something (in this case a #) the members have to guess, if you are right you get a water surprise.
This week was super crazy. 
Like there was just a bunch of little things that happened throughout the week. 

so... allow me to allaborate.
(I have no idea how to spell that, and the keyboard is in spanish so no help from spell correct sos)

MONDAY Funny story is that my companion got sick. Well thats not the funny part. The funny part is that a sister offered him a tea to help his stomach. He gratefully accepted, only to find out that it was Aloe tea. Yeah, that stuff you put on a sunburn. He told me that was the worst thing ever. Oh well. At least it wasnt me. πŸ€—

Everything normal on tuesday. District meeting in Mexicali. 

WEDNESDAY We had the first mutual for the Branch!! There arent enough people here to have leaders for every organization. So we are teaching the young men, and doing mutual. We just taught the Word of Wisdom, and then ate pizza. Nice.
Also on wednesday, we went to visit Armando! His wife got baptized a week ago, and now he is going to get baptized this Saturday! Nice.

Thursday, normal. Woo.

FRIDAY We went to visit an hermano. He is super old, but super awesome. He just lives in a little shack. But he told us something suuper awesome. He said, ¨No doy porque me sobra. Doy porque tengo.¨ Which translates to, ¨I dont give because i have extra. I give because i have.¨ These people are amazing. 
Also, in the night we went with Armando again. And we ate dinner with them. The gave us Caldo de Rez. (beef stew) or something like that. It was awesome. There was something that i had never seen before in the stew. My companion just said, eat it and after ill tell you what it was. I ate it. 
I was chewy, and super white. It tasted goodish. IT WAS CARTILAGE FROM A KNEE. No, not a knee of a person. A cow. But it was actually pretty good. 

Saturday and Sunday also were just eh. 

But today we spent the morning at a farm! We helped a Brother move all of his Fighting Chickens to different areas. It basically consists of you jumping into a cage, and going mad man while the chicken is flying all over the place. A missionarie´s dream come true.

That was my week. And it was crazy. 

I am super having fun. And learning more and more about this thing we call life. 

I hope you are all just enjoying yours. 

con amor, Elder Scoubes

Cleaning a stinky fridge

This one is on Spanish.  He is basically telling us of a recent apt with a lady who is getting baptized this sat and how happy they are about it.  She is baptizing this sat. and her husband in two weeks.  Yeah!
In this video.  He says , So what are we going to do now comp?  and comp says, We are going to clean the stinky fridge.  Why?  because Elder Kelson unplugged it a few days ago when he was visiting.... hahahahahaha

A lady with 24 kids oct 17, 2016

What a week, whare to start?
           what??   ↑↑   idk

This week feels like it went by super fast, and at the same time it feels as though it has been forever since the last Monday. So what on earth happened in that time?

Lunes, well not really anything. 

Martes, We went out to Mexicali again for a meeting with President GarcΓ­a. Can i just say, that when i say that i have the best mission president, it isnt a lie. It is a fact. I have never met someone who cares about the missionaries so much. There are people who just want baptisms and thats it. But he genuinely wants each of us to become disciples of Christ. So that is awesome. Anyways,the bus to go back to Delta didnt end up passing until suuper late. So we got back at about 630, just in time to teach out New Testament Bible Study class. Yeah, kinda lost that day. 

Miercoles, We saw a miracle. You have all heard about Armando and Maribel, out next baptisms. Well, they couldnt go to church on sunday, so they couldnt get baptized this week. BUT, we went to visit them on wednesday, and she said that she was not going to wait. That she was ready to get baptized. WOO. We called President, and he gave us the ALL CLEAR. 

Jueves, We had a crazy adventure. Now knowing that Maribel is going to get baptized in just a few days, we had to go to her house again! Oh yeah, she lives an hour away inb bike. We usually get rides from members, but there werent any available. So we went on bike!! I put some pics up of that. 

Viernes, With the baptism so close, we had to do exchanges! Elder Kelson came down with me, and for the third day in a row, we went to visit Maribel! And all went suuper smooth. Actually we took some awesome pics. Also put them up. 

Sabado, What do you think? Well, we spent the whole day in Mexicali. Why?? MARIBEL GOT BAPTIZED. Yup. That was awesome. We have to baptize people at the Stake in Mexicali, because there isnt a font in our little House of Prayer in Delta. After that, we treated ourselves to some Burger King ice cream. And... there may or may not have been a pro soccer game on the tv between two mexican teams. Maybe. Idek.

Domingo, Maribels confirmation. This was awesome. It super great to see how the Lord really prepares people. I have learned that the Lord is a Lord of preparation. We are where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there. And if you are looking for the miracles, they are deffinately there. Nice. 

Little bonus of the week, I met a nice lady in Mexicali with 24 kids. Nope. Not a typo. 24. 
She said when they were younger, they didnt  have tv.... soo.... umm. πŸ€—πŸ˜‡

Anyways, i love life. And you should love it too. its a pretty cool thing.
