Week 48

"Sometimes its hard to think about Jesus"

This week was a little long, but good.  The 8 am church is still something that gives us troubles sometimes, but we just keep on pushing on.
On a working news we have a few families right now, but none of them are very certain, its just getting them to church is the hard part, but we are going to study super hard the sabbath day to get some work going here.
My new companion by the way is Elder Canto! Hes from merida yucatan, and hes been out for 17 months now.  I get along a lot better with him than i did with my other companion.  

Our branch president had a car accident before church yesterday which was crazy!  it was raining like crazy and he got hit on the freeway, luckily hes ok, but we had some fun times getting church started.  Luckily our stake president had to be at church with us that day, so he took over, and we got carlos confirmed!  We ended up having to give the 5th sunday class as well without any preparation!  oh how fun it is to be a missionary in a branch haha.
My quote is from the last general conference, i was listening to it over again last night before i fell asleep and that little quote called my attention.  Sometimes its hard to think about jesus.  We as members sometimes forget to think about jesus, or even "what jesus would do" if he were in our situation.  If we can keep our mind focused on him, turning down temptations and keeping true to our baptismal covenants will be so much easier.  So my invintation this week is to try harder to think about jesus this week.
On a random note i got stung by a wasp the other day.  My companion pointed at a bush and said "do you see that?" but i didnt see anything, and without warning he smacked the bush, and before i knew it, i got stung in the head by a wasp.  Needless to say there was an angry elder Hodson in that moment.  
But thats about it, the work keeps on keeping on!
Love you all!
Elder Hodson
