That´s awesome that you finally got my package! And I am glad you liked it. Sorry it took so long to figure out how to send it. Hopefully next time it won´t take quite as long ha ha ha. It sounds like the weather is starting to improve there, here it is changing as well, except the summer here is why this place is known by the name infierno (Hell) and after spending the winter here I’m starting to realize where this place gets its reputation ha ha ha.
Well onto this week, to sum it up this week was one of the most fun weeks I have had in my mission. From cambios to today the party has yet to stop. My new companion is really fun and the new gringo (Fastabend) who joined is super fun as well. We have spent every morning doing Zumba and then it involved into a 50 minute Nerf war that involved moving all the furniture in the house. We would then spend the last 10 minutes fixing all the furniture and the next week finding all the bullets. Then during the days when we have to wait outside the house until we can enter it on time we play soccer. I have been made permanent goalie. The second day we were playing it got a little intense and we broke the neighbor’s window. Luckily we are friends with them and to fix a window here it´s only 5 dollars, so it wasn´t too bad. This week we also went to the market place and at the market place I had a little bit of extra money for the month so
On Sunday I got to shave Elder Fastabend and it turned out really well, who knew haircutting was so easy!
One of the cool things that happened this week was that we had a ward activity where we all went and played soccer and had a cookout with some carne asada. It was super cool and the best part was that we got 5 investigators to come to it! Four of them are new investigators that we have found within the past week. It was super cool and they really enjoyed it and now are friends with a lot of the members of the ward. I´m hoping we can now get a little more progress with them and that we can visit the investigators with some of the members that they now have met.
This week we also had a fun experience as I was showing Elder Santiago (my new companion) the area. We were passing by one of the streets and someone kept trying to whistle us over. Eventually they started yelling at us, so we decided to go and talk to them. Immediately they started talking to me in English about how his wife is a member but only goes to church when she goes to visit her parents in the states, due to the fact that she thought there wasn´t a church here in Ojinaga. She was super excited to here about the local church in her home town, and wants us to visit her and to teach her husband the lessons! I´m excited to teach her, because we need to find some investigators that have a bit of church support during the lessons and afterwards, and having a spouse as a member works pretty well most of the time ha ha ha.
Well that´s how my week went, can´t wait for the package, especially the shoe soles ha ha ha
See ya next week,
