Week 38


Wellll friends and family this was a good week, but dang was it long.  Just a little rundown on how our area and house and stuff was.  The last set of missionaries didnt work im pretty sure, and they left the house in a wreck.  So i got here on tuesday, and we have deep cleaned the house.  Scrubbed the toilets, shower, sinks, and everything you can think of.  Ive killed probably 80 spiders, and well just cleaned a lot.  The house didnt have a toilet seat, shower curtain, basically it wasnt a wreck.  So like 60$ later and a whole lot of being macgyver we now have a really sweet house.  We also got an air conditioner.  Basically were just gonna turn the whole house upside down.  On terms of area, its still slow, we found a bunch of new investigators, but on sunday no one showed up sadly.  But this week is going to be different.  Its a good area, its just hard with the 8 am church time.
We have a solid 20 or less active members, but theyre all super nice.  Our branch president wants to work hard as well, he is just very military and rubs some people wrong, but he let us borrow an airconditioner so i like him.
My companion and i get along super well, hes from chihuahua mexico.  Hes a good worker, and hes been out 10 months.  
My district is a little rough.  I have sister missionaries and a set of elders, but my district is known for not working, were the sack of potatoes, but im gonna flip that around this change.  
Im gaining a huge testimony of street contacts here, we find lots of people from just pure street contacts, so opening your mouth just works well here.  Its forcing me to not be quiet with strangers.
Getting whitewashed in an area like this is super fun hahahaha.  I love it here though, the river is beautiful, the area is more fun than my last, i love my comp, the food is better, its harder here, but whats a mission without a little bit of a challenge right?
