Sunday Makes It All Better

Hey Everyone, 

Well, It's been an awesome week, but also a really tough one as well.  I have gotten sick... again.  

Monday we went to do a zone activity and we bought pizza and played games but I couldn't do very much so I just sat down and rested the whole time.  

Tuesday we couldn't leave because I was in too much pain. 

Wednesday we went to San Salvador and had to wake up very early in the morning to be at a doctors appointment at 7:15 am.  I got an ultrasound on my gall bladder but the only thing they found was that my spleen was enlarged.  That didn't really tell us anything so I went to another doctor where he gave me some pills.  

Thursday we went and prepared our baptismal dates with an interview then we went back to the house where I rested in my hammock.  

Friday we did interchanges with Elder Gastalum so he could do the interviews for Ana, Kevin, and Daniel's baptisms.  We also taught English classes that night then went back to the house.

Saturday we finished the interchanges and had a missionary activity about the pioneers where we talked about the pioneers of the Arce ward [I think that is the ward Jake is in right now, maybe].

Then the part that made it all better... Sunday! That's when Ana and Joel got married in the morning, then Joel, Kevin, and Daniel got baptized at 6:00.  We then went to a going away party a the F. Guerra.

Still feeling really sick but I hope it all goes away this week.  Thanks for everything, and I love you all!

Love, Elder Stiles


How is your arm?  Is it still swelling?  Are you feeling sick?  My arm is alright. It's still a little puffy but not much.. and yes, this week I have been dying but it's alright because we baptized 3 people on Sunday :)

How much money do you get each month to pay your expenses?  We get $220 every month to pay for food, transportation, and anything else personal.

Is it enough, or do you run out?  Um, yeah it's enough. I've ran out lately because I've been sick and have to buy a bunch of extra stuff like Gatorade and yogurt for my body.

Do you pay your rent with that money?  No, we do not pay rent with that money.

Are you still living in the same poop house?  Yep, still living it up in the poop house.

What miracles have happened this week?  
Well the fact that the 3 people got baptized while we didn't work the entire week.
