well yes this was the week that i got a new comp and he is american as american gets! he has a year in the mission and speaks good spanish! haha we are actually really alike, like to the point that it is scary
ELDER CALL from Arizona and I...
are both 19 years old
we both have blonde hair blue eyes,
have the same number of siblings with the same ages,
we are both big fans of chris farley, and have quoted many same movies,
we are both eagle scouts,
we both like to play sports, soccer specifically,
we have both played the TUBA!!!! crazy one there,
we both like les mis
we both like to sing,
we both love curry, he had his parents send him some curry spices, we might experiment with...
and there is more!!!!
he is kinda a little more quiet and layed back, but im slowly helping him open up and get to know the area, he is really a nice guy, i have enjoyed our first week together tons.
But not gonna lie, it has been kinda hard, now that i am out of training, and controlling my area, its a little more real, before i just kinda followed elder areas around and he knew all about what we had to do, now its on my shoulders and we have a goal to become a ward by the end of this year, we just need about 3 more priesthood members, so we are gonna find them, but with that goal and me being the elder with more time here, im really kinda feeling the pressure, i still lack a lot of things with the language and other things of experience, but im growing, its good.
this week we contacted a bunch of people and put dates to be baptized with 3 people, a dad named ignacio, and his sons jose miguel and jose alberto, they have the date of the 19th of december, we are praying that they are prepared by then, but they have come to church for about 3 weeks now, and should be set :)
the fun things we did this week were that elder call and I cleaned up the backyard of jesus and katheryn where we pass through every day to get to our area, we used michetes and hoes, it was legit, then later we went and explored some trees behind their house and found some fresh bananas which jesus cut down for us to take home, there were like 50 or so!!!! katheryn made us cool limeade, good day, then today for p day we went to the stake center and played soccer in the gym and ultimate frisbee outside, was legit! haha
good week, not a whole lot more to say other than this church is true and i love you all!
until next week!
