Week 77: Good Weeks Go By Quick, July 31, 2017

SO yeah this week was pretty solid. We found a good amount of people to teach, part of the family Paso Guillén came to church, so thats good, my comps a baller, and the ward is gettin more and more jacked to help us with things. HEre´s a picture of right before Elder Jesson left. I actually dont have a picture with my comp yet but we´ll probably sack one today. Sorry, sacar in spanish is how we say take, like take a picture, so, Spanglish. There´s your spanish for the day, also I don`t have a lot to write, but I will probably have more to write and more time next week. Hopefully. We`ll see. Love you all anyway!

Love you!

Week 76: Peruvagain, July 24, 2017

Transfers! Elder Jesson went to a place called Fiorito, over in the Banfield Stake, the stake i told him he needed to go to!

And my excompañero Elder Funk came to be with Elder Hall for his last transfer! Elder Jeppson went as a assistant traveler.
And my new comp is Elder Mendoza! De Perú. Moquegua. Yeah I dont know where that is either. But he was in Cañuelas, in my district, when I started the mission! Who woulda thought. Also, I still have yet to have a comp that has more time than me in the mission! How interesting. Don´t think that doesnt mean I haven´t been senior comp! You ex missionaries oughtta know what that means.
Anyway, not much time left, cuz the taxi for my comp came super late, but I love you all and we´ll see ya next time.

Love you!

Week 75: Start of Week 6, July 17, 2017

Well next week is transfers, and no one here is really sure whats gunna happen. Theres not many wards left that have 4 missionaries, and theres a lot of missionaries finishing the mission and not alot coming, so we´ll see what happens next week, but I may or may not be able to write.

So anyway this week was pretty tranquila, we had a locro on Saturday which is a soup stew thing they make here on the holidays and its super good and they put everything, literally everything, in it. We brought a little family of investigators that we`re teaching and they loved it, but the mom got sick cuz of the crappy weather so they couldn´t come to church on Sunday, but next week for sure! We`re still working with a lot of the people we found a couple weeks ago in the super week, and things are going quite well, we`re looking to dive into the waters of baptism here soon.
Other than that, everythings good and normal. The weeks fly by faster every time, so I´m gunna throw in a Great Gatsby quote here then continue with my P-Day. Heres some pictures too. We got electricity back but heres a candle anyway.

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

Love you!

Week 73: Big Week, July 3, 2017

Well, you probably dont remember, but last week we had a grand total of 0 lessons! Good news! This week we had a bunch! We found 2 new familys to teach and some other people! It was amazing! On Tuesday we had comp exchanges and I went with Elder Guzman from Ecuador to La Ferrere 2, and my DL Elder Brown came here. While they were here they found a family to teach of a woman we had contacted a couple weeks ago, they taught em, then the family came to the family home evening in the church the same night! Isnt that awesome?

While they were doing that, me and Elder Guzman went to contact a reference from a sister from a different stake. Well turns out she was there with her soon to be husband whose also preparing to get baptized, and 8 other people. So we taught them all and it was one of the most powerful lessons ive ever taught. One of the women had a son who was shot and put in jail, and so we came and taught them and gave some blessings of comfort and blessed the house and everyone listened real well. It was awesome! Theyve already gone back and taught em again and the son, who was released! This was right after elder guzman telling me he had terrible luck in exchanges and never had lessons.
So that was super awesome. In these next few weeks I`ll tell you guys about each one as we start to baptize em, but for now, gotta go!
