First letter of 2016
So this week was cool. Happy NEW YEARS!!!! yeah we went to bed early, but we slept outside our house and watched the stars and listen to everyone yell. that was kind of cool ahha. in the aspect of missionary work, we have been working with fabianna and fernando and had 2 lessons with them this week which went very well. also we are working with this younger kid named felipe who is 17 but super cool and really open to listen. kamal and daniela continue to be fun to teach, and we had a super great lesson on prayer and the importance of it and commited them to pray. we went on divisions this week and i went out with a missionary named ELder Hamilton, super cool dude. we contacted a ton and found a couple less active people who we didnt have in our book that tells us all the members. Also, we taught an english class which was a change of pace but was super fun. Other than that we are going to a couple new people this week which hopefully turns out to be a couple who will listen to us. Big Congrats to CHALEA AND TRAVIS!!! they reach the goal of temple marriage which is the best thing i can think of. I continue to die of heat, but no problem ahah. watermellons are starting to harvest and we are eating them all over. in the street the other day someone just gave us one which was cool. we shared it with all the young kids that live on our street. hope all is going well!
