This week was pretty exciting.
On Monday, I got my hair cut, so that was nice because it was getting pretty long and a pain to take care of.
On Tuesday, we had interviews with the President which was great. I told him that at some point in my mission I would like to serve in Piribebuy, which is the area that Justin also served in. He said that he would try to make it work. So it might just happen, Justin. Anyways after the interviews we had divisions. I went with Elder Wilson from Utah to Barrio Republicano and had some success teaching there. He is a fun guy that also loves to fish and his dad was a contractor so we had a lot to talk about.
On Wednesday, we had District Meeting and then we moved houses which ended up taking all day. Oh, and Evan, if you think we packed a lot of stuff into the truck when we helped you move, NO, NO, these people know how to load a truck up.
On Thursday, every single one of our citas (appointments) fell through, but we were able to find a couple of people to teach anyways.
Friday, well Friday was almost like Thursday, but we did have one cita that was planned that did not fall through. It was really good because the whole family, including Menos, the Dad, was there for the lesson and then near the end he came in and wanted to know what we were teaching but then that made the lesson drag on and the interest of the others fell away. They study the Bible every Friday as a family and usually invites a couple of friends to join as well. It will be interesting if they will read from the Book of Mormon. We have a cita set up for tomorrow with them, so we will see. Oh, and I found 20,000 in the street which was nice.
Saturday we dropped Sergio for good now, which was kind of sad. We tried to find Isaias, because we had not talked with him since last Sunday, but we could not find him and then we asked one of his member friends and she said that he did not want to be baptized anymore and did not tell us anything more. We were able to find him after Church yesterday and it happens to be that his friends and some of his family are making fun of him because he is hanging out with the Mormons, which just is awful because I do not know how best to help him with that but we are trying to help him out.
Saturday was a civil wedding of one of Elder Woodfield’s convert’s named Francisco Javier and his wife Matilda which was cool. Gesenia is almost ready to have a baby and is in a lot of pain so she was not able to come to the Church yesterday which was ok.
Anyways I love you all!
Love, Elder Call
