Jesse - Email - March 31, 2014

I Totally called that anthony was going to Chile!!!!! I am really excited for him and the chance he has to serve in santiago!
this week has been great! its been fun to try and start anew in a area. its actually been really fun! for this whole week we walked around with a map in our hands trying to figure out where people lived:P but luckily the streets mostly have names of countries, so there a little easier to remember. our main focus for these next transfer is to really get to know the members, go to lessons with them and get to know there families. the members live here so they know a lot more than we do about...well everything. so they are our main focus for now. ive also never worked with members that have been ex-communicated before! and we have three in this area so there are different rules with them  that we have to follow so it will be fun. the area is beautiful though! its finally starting to cool down and the trees are changing colors! part of our area is a kinda center of safford, thatcher area but then you walked 8 blocks and it turns to more fields and humble homes, i love it! and there is a panaderia close to our apartment so we dont have to go too far to get some donuts!! there are some members here too that are just amazing and really want to help us with the work so we have that going for us too! overall i dont think im going to want to leave this area. we did end up walking a ton though because we are waiting for some bikes but man, after sitting in a hospital for a month and driving in a truck for two weeks, walking everywhere we went was hard!!! so im really looking forward to those bikes:P other than that we are having some success and im just enjoying mission work and stepping more outside of my comfort zone. ive learned that if i get an impression to do something to just do it! before it was hard to clap at a front door and talk to a complete stranger, or while im sitting on the bus or train or bus stop. i still lack faith sometimes but im getting better:) i hope everyone at home knows i love them! even all the way over here in Argentina:)
