Well last week I started feeling sick, sick after everything that I ate. It wasn't pretty ( sorry for the grossero) haha!
I started to feel better but during the comida on Wednesday, I was just feeling out for the count when we arrived at the house. The smell and the coke and the heat and everything was making me nauseous. I barely got down the first plate and an Elder in my district who is kind of a punk and is biased against Americans said loudly "Elder Roberts, you want more?" "oh Hermana Elder Roberts would like some more!" The sweet old hermana asked me and I didn't want to hurt her feelings and I couldn't say no. So about half-way finished with the other plate (rice, chicken with chile sauce drizzled all over it) I had the urge to throw up. We were in the corner of the room and only a curtain separated the kitchen and the bathroom. I barely made it to the bathroom area and was able to shut the curtain. With me throwing up and everything. I finally opened up the curtain ready to face the humiliation thinking everyone had heard me. But it wasn't the case - the TV was on and everyone was watching the futbol game. So I was safe. After that, the rest of the week I was fine.

have a dog he just come and lays by me like he's keeping guard or something)

Okay I don't know if you guys understand how missionary work is in my mission. Our president has a goal for every missionary to baptize every week. So this is what we have to do. We have to find 2 investigators cada dia. And then every lesson we teach we have these goals for our investigators. They have to read, go to church, and get baptized. If they accept all this they are an investigator. So about every week we have about 7 investigators with a good week. And every Sunday we pass by them to go to church. We need 5 assistants to have our investigator to be baptized. If that makes sense.
(found this beut in the street. My homie David really humble joven.
When on splits to pass by for our investigators on Sundays)
Well this week was a pretty bad week. We hardly found new people to teach. And all of the people we did have didn't go to church. So basically this week we are starting at square one. It's good it's a new month. I'm going to work hard on service and you guys can too. I even made a little personal promise to go out of my way to help pregnant ladies and basically women with children. (kinda like Mary) Well that's just a quick rundown of how my week was. Sorry this is so short, I ran out of time.
Everything is great here in Mexico. I love you guys all so much. You're in my prayers every night, and in the mornings.
With Love Elder Roberto (by the way, Santo lives In Mexico)
