Week 79

Whats happening people? this week was pretty good, it went by like crazy fast haha we did a few exchanges which was good and we had some crazy experiences! Wednesday i went on another exchange in New Albany Indiana and had a really good day with the Elder serving there, he is about to finish his mission but has been working really hard in his little area so our day was super fun. Later when i got back to Louisville we went and saw an investigator named Yoel, and we brought a member of our ward and this guy Yoel told us that he didnt pray about the book of mormon because he already knew it wasnt true because he watched a video on youtube about how José Smith mistranslated the book of abraham haha it was like shocking how oblivious he was but we gave him the best chance he could to find out for himself what was true and he just blatantly shot it down so there was nothing we could do for him! it was a good learning experience for me of how important the spirit is in missionary work, without it we couldn't convince anyone of anything! After that lesson we got a ride down to Shelbyville to do a baptismal interview for a guy named Luis that the Hermanas are teaching, who i taught like a year and a half ago in Shelbyville, but it was a really cool experiance to see him from where he was when i left to where he was now, i was pretty grateful to get to be a part of that process. 

The next day the Assistants to the President came and picked me and Elder Weeks up and drove us to their area which is downtown Louisville, so not very far haha, but we all four worked in their area all day and did whats called a Blitz, where we trade companions and work the same area which was super fun! there are some VERY interesting people in Downtown Louisville haha it was so crazy. 

Later that week we had a huge like tri-stake Hispanic Cultural Fiesta which was super cool! they did like a bunch of different foods from different countries and did like dances and different little acts from a bunch of different places which was super fun.

Yesterday was the first week this transfer we didnt have anyone at church so we spent the whole day running around trying to track everybody down to see what happened. We did have a pretty cool experience sunday morning though, so earlier in the week when i went to New Albany, i left elder Weeks in louisville to take car of everything by himself since the other missionary doesnt speak spanish, so they were biking by and a car started honking at them and motioning for them to come over, so elder weeks bikes over and meets this cuban guy named Luis, now the thing about cubans is they speak CRAZY! like their spanish is almost unrecognizable! the speak very fast and dont pronounce the first sound in the word or the last sound so they just like mumble like crazy, so long story short my brand new companion couldnt understand what this guy was saying but he managed to give him our phone number. So sunday morning i get a call from this guy and i couldnt understand a word haha he sounded like the cuban darth vader haha but i was able to make out that he wanted to know the address of the church so i gave it to him and told him when it started and when we got to church sure enough there he was! turns out he is a member and recently moved here from spain where he was baptized and because he saw my companion biking around he was able to find the church haha pretty cool how it worked out! 

Other than that, not much to report, love you guys and thanks for all your support! 

Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
