Well, today I am starting my fifth transfer! It doesnt seem like that many, but its pretty hard to believe that im about a third of the way done with my transfers...!
So, this week was good. My comp was sick on Tuesday so we had a sick day and that sucked, but Wednesday he was feeling better so we got to work finally! It has been so hard these past couple weeks to mark appointments with people because everyone is traveling or with family that they havent seen in 12039 years or some other excuse! But this week was alright! Its getting back to normal finally! So, I have a story about a new family that we are teaching!
Wednesday we were sitting on a bench waiting to show some friends where the Bishops house is when this old guy was staggering up the road and stopped and looked at me. It was really weird. Creepy even. But then he blurted out, Hey you, white boy, you are an American arent you? It was funny, but he was just an old guy so I decided to be nice and just simply replyed that yes, I am American. He came and sat down next to my comp and I and started to talk to us. He is 85 years old and his name is Alonso! I love him. We had a nice discussion about the world, religion, and how awful things are in the world, but then we had to go because the people we were gonna bring to the Bishops house arrived. We got his house number and told him we would return the next day. We went there the next day after lunch and he answered the door with a big smile on his face. He opened the door and sayed, My American! We went to the front room and sat down and started to talk to this wonderful old man when a lovely old lady entered the room...with desserts... :) she made us Pavê which is like a sweet tort thing but I dont know how to describe it. It is wonderful and most importantly, cold. It was delicious and we were very grateful because its HOT here right now. Well, not so incredibly hot, but the sun is so strong! She sat down afterwards and we talked to her too. I feel bad because we stayed there for about 3 hours talking to them, but its when they needed in there lives so Im just glad that we could help them! We talked all about the church and all of the different functions it has in the world and it was wonderful. I hope that they will go to church and find out for themselves that this is the true church of God!
Friday and Saturday my comp and I went to Arcoverde to help the Elderes there. I love them so much. Elder Ball who will go home in April, and Elder King, who has about 5 months on the mission. They are both filled with the Spirit of Missionary Work and are trying so hard to build up their area. I had the opportunity to help Elder King friday night mark a baptism for the 21st of January so I hope that will go through!
Sunday was a little slow. We went to church and had Danielle and Amanda there. Then we went to lunch, then we went to the Ward Counsel meeting, then we went home to study, then we had a meeting with our Ward Mission Leader, then went home again. It was a productive day, but not for our Investegators!
Well, that was my week! Hope it was an informative letter this week! I should be getting packages and letters at the end of this week so im excited!!! I love you all so much and until next week....
