My mission is slipping through my fingers! 3 weeks!!!!
week something a little bit more exciting happened. One day, I noticed
that the bottom of my foot was hurting a little bit. At the base of my
big toe, I noticed a little thing that looked like a wart. I thought,
"oh great, wart on my foot." But then I went on with my life. The next
day after I got home, I looked at my foot and noticed that it had grown a
bit, but it still wasn't that big of a deal. The next day, my foot
started hurting..........and the wart looked like a fish eye.....a white
bubble with a black point in the middle. It was at this point that I
called Sister Wright to ask what I should do. I was sent to the health
clinic to get it checked out. Hahahaha this was a super funny
experience. I had to give my full name, but no one hear understands my
name, Autumn or knows how to say or write it. Hahaha so I ended up
waiting in the waiting room forever because no one one wanted or knew
how to call out the name of the poor little American girl. Racism. :)
So in case you were all wondering what this thing was......it
is called "Bicho do Pé." In english, the translation would be, "Foot
Bug." Yeah.....there was this flee type bug that caved into my skin and
was living there and laying eggs. You get this foot bug by walking
through dirty sand that dogs do their business in. I HATE THE DOGS
HEREEEEE!!!!! If I wasn't annoyed by them enough already. Anyway....the
nurse used a needle to dig out the bug and all the eggs. So.....I am
Bicho-Free. Something like this had to happen! I have been way too
healthy on the mission! I needed a cool story like this to bring home
I don't know if you all remember about Nicoly, a girl that
Sister Carneiro and I found in Santa Cruz, she was baptized yesterday!
It is hard to not be present at the baptism of someone that you found,
but I am happy to know that because I followed the spirit, she was
baptized! That is all that matters!!
I am excited to talk to the fam on mother's day! It will be more like......."Hi. I will see you in 2 weeks!"
Haley is beautiful! She was absolutely shining in that picture that you sent me, Dad! Thank you!
Love you all! Don't worry! I am taking advantage of every second that I have left of being Sister Barnes!
