September 9th-16th, 2013
hey the hurricane definitly hit hard down here. it rained pretty hard the second half of the week. we got pretty soaked but still kept working. this week i went out to ciudad isla to work with the elders. it`s like two and a half hours away from here and the only way to get there is on a bumpy dirt road. but the elderes are doing good out there and it was nice to be with them. out there in isla they grow a ton of pineapple and that was really cool to see as well. this week are the cambios, my comp is going to the offices as assitent, and my new comp is going to be elder aragon from chihuahua. i already know him, he`s a really funny guy and i`m sure we`ll get a long and work good together. i have been lucky on my mission and have had really good companions.
we have been having really good lessons lately, really spiritual because we are starting to teach the lessons how they should be taught cause we are not in such a hurry cause they have to go to church so many times before their baptism. this week we found some good investigatores and taught them well but only three went to church. we are working with the converts but it is hard cause sometimes they are just really lazy. we are also getting a long better with the sister missionaries in our branch, which is good. this weekend was the mexican independence day and the ward put on a pretty crappy activity haha but the food was good and we got some references out of it. that we just passed to the sisters so they could have some work. also everyone tells me that i look like the mexican boxer, canelo, that just lost to mayweather on saturday haha. it`s soo funny to me cause just cause we both have red hair haha.
it`s crazy to think i only have 3 cambios left.
hey dad if you can`t think of anything to write me, just share some of the things you did on your mission, some of your memories and experiences.
