Hello from Meyehualco!
With new companion, Elder Iglesias, at the internet cafe today.
my new area’s pretty chill. It’s a nice
small ward (not in boundary lines but in members) and everyone seems to get
along with everyone which is a big change and really nice. We walk a lot. I don’t know why we walk a lot, but man we
do-- A LOT. And man the cement really
heats up here. Sometimes I feel that my
shoes are going to melt off my feet! The
space bar on this darn computer keeps sticking!
AHH! It’s making me not want to
write too much, haha.
found 7 new people this week to teach.
7! It was awesome. And we have 9 people who all have a set
baptismal date. But the bad part is that
we didn’t have anyone at church on Sunday.
My comp blames me. He says it’s
all the white guy’s fault. So, ya I
think I brought a little bad luck, but we are hoping to change things around
this week. But yes, we got plenty of
work for the moment.
comp goes home in 3 weeks and so we get to go to the temple on Wednesday!! AGAIN for me! WOOOOO! I’m so excited! And then we also have a Zone Conference on
Friday with Pres and the assistants! And
then Stake conference on Sunday! Go
us! Lots to do and not enough time to do
it! I love it!
comp cuts hair … it’s pretty handy. I
saved me a good 40 pesos! Everyone here
in the ward is planning going away parties for my comp. All I hear all day long is "I’m out of
here in 4 weeks", "I’m out of here in 3 weeks and 6 days",
"I’m out of here in 3 weeks, 5 days and a couple of hours," and so
forth. It’s hard, but fun. Sending two missionaries home within one month
is really hard on a missionary--especially me.
Our ward has no bishop and that complicates things, but we figure this Sunday
at stake conference we will get a new one.
we are eating fish. I’m so excited! It’ll be like the 2nd time in 2 years! WOOOOOOOOO
is well. Back to work.
