Running to Catch the Bus
I was serving a mission in the city of three hearts in Brazil. This was the city that I had more embarrassing moments in my life. I remember that day we had many people to visit during the day and at night we had to go to the home of a church member. After finishing the night, we looked at the clock and saw that we were going to miss the last bus. We left the house of our friends, ran, climbed a hill, and arrived at the corner. We could see five dogs running behind us; the dogs barked a lot. However, we were very afraid of being bitten and continued to run. My companion shouted to a man who was at the bus stop to talk to the driver and wait for us. We were almost on th ebus when the handle of my water bottle broke, but it did not stop me from continuing to run. My companion had a bottle of water and it hit the ground and burst, soaking her and me. We looked towards the bus and saw that the driver did not expect us. However, we continued to run to catch the bus at the next point. Finally, we arrived at the other stop and we entered the bus and run inside because of the dogs that were still chasing us. But the worst of everything was it was difficult having to hear the driver saying "we liked how you ran." He was watching us all the time chasing the bus! My partner and I laughed a lot and learned to pay attention to the time to not miss the last bus.
