Life is SO GOOD!!

Cool General Conference!
We did us some cookin'.
General Conference was AWESOOOMMMEEEEEEE! And my week
was pretty much right up there in awesomeness, too! We actually have an investigator--like a real
one! I still don’t know his name, but
he’s for sure real and he went [to the Church to watch] General Conference
even! Sooo, yeah, I’m soooo jacked. Having investigators is always good.
Hmm, this week was filled with anticipation for the
conference! We also had our Ajusco party
this week so we got to see lots of drunk dudes in the street and also lots of
masked creepy people. I love
small town Mexican parties!
We got us a new elder named Elder Mayoral from Aguas
Calientes, Mexico. He’s a cool chap and doesn’t know a lick of English. He came straight from the CCM so he was literally
at his house 3 weeks ago. That’s so hard
to even believe! Man, oh man, I’ve been
gone a LOOOONG time! So, fun stuff
really! Elder Jarrett and I are both
training and it’s just so crazy because last time I was in this situation, it
was Elder Marsh, my district leader and me both training and Elder Jarrett was
Elder Marsh’s son--so crazy fun stuff.
I love it all!
We had a leadership training this week and I was so, so, so,
so, so, so excited for it! I love those
things. Prez just tells us a ton of
stories and we learn a ton and get all pumped to go back to our area and
work! So really it was a great meeting,
but the sad part is that we left on time, but there was a huge accident on the
highway just out of the mountains and so we got there really, really late. I walked in all shameful and that was
hard. It also kept me from getting the
full message of the training and feeling the Spirit as strong as I would have
liked to. It’s hard being so far away
from the mission office. It took us
almost 3 hours by bus.
Life is good! It’s
fun getting over the hill in my son’s training!
We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Five more weeks and who knows, maybe I’ll be
sent to the dirty ol’ city!
