This week went really well. It was a little hectic with lots of baptismal interviews and travels, etc. which didn`t leave too much time for tracting, but it was fun. On Tuesday it was my birthday. We didn’t have anything special planned, just a few appointments. When we were visiting Henry I told him it was my birthday and he immediately starting giving us all sorts of stuff. Chicha morada (a drink here) and popcorn, then soda and a big bowl of masamora morada (a weird but delicious dessert here. Then we went to an appointment that we had with Jany in our pensionista´s house. She had set up a mini surprise party and had invited a few members that we know. When I walked in they just threw flour at me, no eggs this year, but I avoided most of it. She made me a super delicious chocolate cake. They sang me Happy Birthday and then started chanting ¨take a bite, take a bite¨ so that they could push my face into the cake. – it’s another one of their traditional tricks on birthdays. So I took a bite and boom, five different hands pushed my face into the cake. Pretty hilarious because I tried faking them out and doing it fast but they got me. It was a great birthday and I felt as if I were amongst my own family.
