Still not super ideal but i decided to take Coach Behms advice and
"control what you can control" so i had to stop worrying about all the
stupid stuff that didn't matter anymore and just go do the best i could
and it turned out to be an okay week! its hard here because its so big
and spread out, there's Hispanic people everywhere as opposed to in
Georgetown where all the Hispanics lived in 2 places, so it was a lot
easier to find people there! there are definitely more people here but
they're all spread out!
But we had a pretty good week, on Tuesday we had a lesson with a kid
named William who is 14, 2 years ago he moved here from Honduras and
he actually speaks really good English! But he has been taught by
missionaries for a while and he is super cool! he has a good
understanding of everything and will come to church every week as long
as someone gives him a ride! so we had a great lesson with him about
the holy ghost and how he can receive his answer so I'm pretty excited
Wednesday we went all the way downtown to a street called Muhammad Ali
which is actually the street i took that video of on the icloud but we
found a lady named Joanna and taught her and her kids and it went
really well, both her and her 8 year old son Jacob were pretty intent
on listening and when we came back on Saturday they were both super
excited to tell us that they'd read the first 2 pages of the book of
Mormon so that was cool! were pretty excited about them as well.
On Thursday i went on an exchange with my district leader Elder
Engstrom across the river in a own called New Albany, Indiana, and it
was a pretty good day! we were doing a district fast so we hadn't eaten
all day and it was a super hot day so we were pretty beat at the end
of the day but overall it was still really good!
Friday we met a less active guy named Carlos who was super cool! he
was super excited to see us and let us in and talk to us, he's someone
who still has a huge testimony of the church and still loves the
church but just kinda let life get in the way but he told us to come
back the next day and when we did he had 3 of his friends there and
wanted us to teach them the gospel haha it was super cool! so we
taught these 4 guys about the restoration and it was super cool. This
area has a lot of potential and I'm excited to see what we can do here!
I got those pictures from lily's baptism and I'm super sad i missed it
but it looks like it was a really good time!
love you guys, hope you have a great week! Thanks for all the prayers!
Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
