"Thank you for all your love and support"
this week there isn’t much to report. honestly, i cant really remember what we did.
we have people to teach but we they really aren’t progressing. it’s really hard because we know that we have to stop meeting with them but we won’t have anyone to teach. it’s going to be an act of faith and we are going to do it to find more people.
the good news is this week is that a couple that have been investigating the church for 2 years decided to get married and baptized. we are pretty exciting. the court system here is really messed up so the soonest that this can happen is january 16th. we are pretty excited for them. we have to keep meeting with them because many times people back out last second.
this week i did a division with an elder in the most dangerous part of the mission. i thought i was going to get shot, knifed, or who knows what. it is supppppper ghetto but, because the people are so humble, it is one of the most successful parts of the mission. we had a lot of good contacts and had a lot of success. we stick out so much in that sector because we are two north americans in a white shirt and tie.
it is soooooo hot now. we are talking in the 90’s plus. it kills being in a white shirt and pants all day. i would much rather take the winter than the summer. i wear sunscreen everyday and i am still burning. in fact we contacted one house and some women came out and as soon as she saw me she told me to wait cause she had a gift for me. she ran back into the house and gave me a tube of sunscreen cause she doesn’t want me to get any more pink. it was pretty funny.
my comp is doing well and is almost done with his mission. it is pretty different being with a native. we are working hard. just a little fun fact about him is he is missing his right thumb cause when he was 15 he got it caught in a pump and it ripped off. our fist hand shake was a little awkward. he is a cool guy.
thing are going good as usual. thank you for all of your love and support. i love you all. the church is true.
