Week 72

FAMILY! Whats up people! So this week we got some pretty exciting news! On Saturday we got a call from President Brough and he told us Elder Birky would be getting transferred and that I would be training a new missionary! I'm super excited!  President also told me Ive been called to be the District Leader here in the New Albany District, so the pressure is on haha I'll be working over time with an Elder fresh out of the MTC and a District to take care of so I'm really excited for the opportunity and think it will help me grow a lot. 

Other than that this week went great, pretty normal! right now we are teaching a few part member families and have seen a few progress! one thing I've learned a lot lately in my mission is that investigators get so much farther when the ward is involved! 

We are teaching a 25 year old named José who is the brother of a member here and he came to church this week and seemed to like it! it was his first time in any church ever so it was a pretty new experience for him! the sister in sacrament gave a 35 minute talk on the pioneers and it was reaaalllyy dry and not very applicable but the good thing about our investigators not speaking English is we do the translation for the sacrament meeting so we can pretty much twist whatever the speakers say and make it applicable and more interesting for the Spanish speakers haha so that's always fun! 

We are teaching the Carillo family still too, they are teh ones who moved here recently from Venezuela and its going good! they have some concerns and its hard to find them all home at the same time but hopefully things will start picking up with them soon. We are helping with a little bit of English too and the only thing the mom remembers how to say is "girl you crazy" in a super think Venezuelan accent haha its pretty funny!  

We also had a fun little family night activity last night for the Spanish group and watched meet the Mormons and had popcorn with lime and hot sauce haha that's one thing about Hispanics they put lime salt and hot sauce on nearly everything! but we had a few investigators come and it went super well! 

Love you guys, hope you have a great week!

Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
