Better week!!! Well not too much better successfull-wise, but it was better as in my attitude, my whole spirit, was in the right place. Last P-day, after I wrote last week, we had a zone activity which was really fun......get ready for it........dream accomplished.......soccer on the streets of Mexico :) In Mexico there are basketball hoops with the poles at the bottom making a soccer goal, so, it's cool because it's a basketball hoop mixed with a soccer goal! But yeah, our zone all played soccer, and I was just like, dream accomplished! Afterwards we all had pizza, and then had our zone meeting, so yeah, started off the week good!
So the next few days weren't horrible, we had a few lessons
with investigators. Then around Thursday/Friday we just found so many new
investigators! Like this one man, Ricardo, just came up to us and said, hey,
can you guys come to my house and we can discuss a little about your religion?
We haven't actually been to his house yet, well we've tried, but it's hard to
find people because they're working pretty much all the time. We also had a few
references of other people and with those references we were able to contact
like all of them. So all in all I think it has been a good week because now we
have a lot more investigators to visit.
Also, I swear the food gets
better and better. I'm sure dad remembers, but there's this dessert like food
called horchata. It's like rice, milk, and cinnamon! It's super good! There are
actually drink powders for horchata which are good too! Also, there's this stuff
called atoli, or something like that, and it's like a really really good hot
So one of the best parts of Mexico I've realized so far
is that the members are just amazing! Like they're members because they want to
be, and they're so strong! Yesterday was fast Sunday and there was never a
silent moment during it. Pretty much the whole ward bore their testimonies!
Elder Whitney was saying that that pretty much happens every time!!! They're
also so friendly, and they always help us with the language. Like sometimes with
investigators they're not as willing to help if you make a mistake with the
language, but members help so much!
Also, cool thing, I think since
I've been a missionary I've gained this new ability on the piano to pretty much
play any song in the hymn book. Last week I was trying to play the songs that
were the songs for sacrament, songs I've never really played before, and I
played them for sacrament. Also, yesterday, for sacrament meeting I played all
three songs. Only one of the songs I've never played! It is crazy! Normally they
play a CD with the hymns, but I guess now that I'm here I just got granted this
amazing cite reading ability, so yeah! That is pretty cool!
1. So I went to Chihuahua to finish my immigration papers ( so now I'm
legal for one year ) But there were no packages. The package system is so dumb
though. When the packages get here the zone leaders go and pick up the packages
for their zone, and then the next zone meeting we get the packages. So I talked
to the zone leader and he said they had a lot of packages, but wasn't sure if I
had one or not, so next zone conference I guess I'll see if I get the packages.
It is really slow! So if you want something to be here on time, send it extra
2. Yeah, the canker is gone out of my mouth, but if I get
another one I'll use those techniques.
3. Thanks for the fast :) It is
crazy how much you can actually feel fasts.
4. Money and food are both
good, I get enough food each week to live. Not necesarily extra food, but I live
within my means!
5. How was Halloween? Sounds like it was fun! The
only exciting thing that happened on Halloween for us is that some drunk people
tried to throw some bags of who knows what at us, but they all missed. A mixture
of their drunkness and our being missionaries. It was funny because me and Elder
Whitney both stopped, looked at each other, and was just like, whatever! It was
like 10 feet from our house!
6. Funny thing....they sell toast here.
Like not even bread.....like toast! haha
7. This week we had a LOT of
drunk people talk to us! Weird stuff.....
So yeah, it was a better
week! And if there's one thing I've learned, is that it's all about the
attitude! You just have to have the attitude that all is going to be okay, and
always keep your mind on the work, and working harder! That is the medicine to
it all!!! So I'm excited for this next upcoming week! Thanks for all the love
and support!!!! Love you all!
