Day #641 | Week #91

This week was really busy. My companion and I have been trying to organize ourselves and work in our area. Sometimes it was hard, because our appointments fell through, but we just kept moving forward and working. The secretaries of the mission came and we helped them take out some of the stuff that was in the other missionaries apartment who left the area. 

We had a pretty good attendance at church. We are going to start teaching some references that we received this last week. Things are moving pretty well here in Ocotillo.

Day #634 | Week #90: Moving Blocks & A Bigger Area

This week was crazy! We were able to do two service activities. The first one we helped move adobe blocks down a mountain and the second one we helped cut down a tree for one of the other set of missionaries investigators. 
Elder Nolasco and I are looking for new people to teach. It was a little rough this week as a lot of our appointments fell through, but we made the most of it. We contacted, did some service, and we taught all the people we could with the time that we had. 
Good news! Our area is getting bigger. In our ward right now we have four missionaries, but the area that the other set of missionaries are assigned to is getting closed. They are both leaving tomorrow so we will  get to take their area from them. Now we will have a lot more stuff to do. 

That's about it for now.

Day #627 | Week #89: 1 Baptism, 1 Latrine, and 8 Blisters

This week was great!  We had the baptism of David, who is the brother of Nadia and Lorena. We had baptized Nadia and Lorena last change and now we taught their brother this change. We have also started teaching their parents. They are awesome and know a lot about our church. 
We also got to make a latrine, which is basically a huge deep hole in the ground. 
Three elders and I made it deeper and wider. 

We also found two more people to start teaching. They were a reference of a member and they are a mother and a daughter, their names are Sonia and Sindi. They are super awesome and really nice, I hope they can progress.

Things are going good in this area and hopefully we can keep going at this pace.

Day #620 | Week #88: General Conference

This week was awesome! We helped chop down this members yard with machetes. 




Elder Nolasco and I have had some amazing lessons with our newer investigators. Also we are still working with our recent converts and with their families teaching them. We had an Elders Quorum activity on Friday. We had a BBQ and helped cook the meat. We made salsa too. It was super fun and it was great to help support the ward. 

We were able to go watch the 186th Annual General Conference in San Pedro Sula. All of the talks were awesome, so all of them were my favorite.
