This week was the last week of the transfer. I cannot believe how fast these 6 weeks have gone by! I truly will be home before I know it! And it terrifies me haha! I don't want to ever leave my mission! (No offense to everyone back home)Lets see, this week we had exchanges. It was supposed to happen last week but because of the bed bug fiasco the other sisters decided to wait until the danger had passes. Update on the bedbugs: WE ARE CLEAN! But we did see some cockroaches and bedbugs crawling all around this apartment we visit on a regular basis. And basically everywhere we go is pretty sketchy and worn down. I honestly have so many funny stories of busting drug deals and being stopped by someone who is high. It is always an adventure here in Denver. Oh and scary experience, we have a woman who lives in this dungeon. Literally a dungeon. You walk down these stairs into a dark corridor with no escape. And the aprtment next to Marta's is full of these cholos who think they run the neighborhood. It was when we where on exchanges and had a 16 yr old YW coming with us to a lesson. They were yelling really bad things at us and tried to block our path and get us to come in their apartment. I felt so bad for Lily, the YW! Usually we have things yelled at us but it never went this far as to them all right there cornering us. But that fire came out of me and I was able to save the day. Not that anything would have happened to us. We have the Lord on our side always.
