Hey! You won’t believe where I am… I am in an area called Calvario! RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO CUCHUMATANES! Right next door to where I started my mission! I am neither ZL DL or Trainer… I am with a good buddy of mine Elder Rodriguez from Mexico. I met him when I went to Momos for the first time. It is an honor to have him kill me. =)
I am actually opening up this area… Elder Rodriguez and I (somehow) were specially assigned here! I heard rumors that it was an assignment from Elder Clarke… but who knows. It’s challenging opening up an area! But it’s possible. We are doing a great job! We share the area ( >=( ) with the Zone Leaders.
I can finally just focus on my area, without having to worry about other missionaries or taking dats. It is WONDERFUL! It is such a blessing being in the area right next to where I was born.
The best part is being able to see the fruits of my labors in Cuchu at the same time.
I see soo many Cuchu members all the time and they all FREAK OUT when they see me. It is a lot of fun =). It’s fun to see what influence I had there. There is this hermana that washed our clothes there, and she was like my mom in the mission at that point, and always fed us etc., and I came back and she was inactive! BUT I visited her, and she freaked out as well, and came to church this Sunday and said she loved it. I bought her some flowers to help her feel better (for the reason as to why she went inactive, hopefully that helps).
Our house is awesome though! It has a huge backyard… and there are chickens who give us free eggs!
I have finally learned how to set goals… Elder Rodriguez and I, despite opening an area, want to have 2 baptisms before I go. He is a good guy, and has been a friend of mine my whole mission. He says he wants to give me a baptism before I go =). That would be awesome.
