Jesse - January 19, 2015
another week down! there was literally not a moment that we weren't working this week. not that i didn't work the other weeks though, I'm just really determined that this brazilian is going to end his mission in a good way and not like some others who tend to die towards the end. we managed to get in 22 lessons with less actives and investigators which is actually really good!! especially because we are in a branch and not a ward. i got here right when they changed the bishopric again so we are kinda in that growing and learning process of the branch. the blessings this week were really obvious though, literally almost every house we touched there was someone on the other side waiting for us. and a lot of the times they were with friends who were willing to sit through a lesson with us. and when elder venancio told me that the attendance is usually about 50 or 55 we had set a goal to get it up to 75 by the time the transfer ends. well turns out that all but 2 people that we had visited in the week showed up yesterday and the attendance ended up being 82. so like i said it was really easy to see the blessings. we are working really good together, we get along and teach great off one one another. everyday we wake up to a message from another elder who leaves in February, so thanks to those messages we know very well that my comp has 34 days left in his mission.today for zz-day we made some tacos to celebrate me being a white mexican. they turned out really good!! and i don't know if i told you mom, but i like bell-peppers now. we even had a competition to see who could eat the most uncooked mmm good stuff!! I'm excited to what this week will bring, the challenges, blessings, lessons, laughs, and spirit. les quiero mucho!!! no se que mas decir...por eso estoy escribiendo en castallano:P aaahhh si! tambien esta lloviendo y vamos a jugar a la pelota en la lluvia!!!! chau!!!!!
