Week of January 13th

Buenas tardes todos (good afternoon everyone)! I hope you all had a good week. We had pretty good week this week. We were able to find some new investigators this week. One of the investigators we found, Cruz Pelcastre, is pretty interesting. Yesterday we had our first lesson with him, but we could hardly teach because he talked too much, and every time we tried to interupt he talked evene louder. He talked about his religious beliefs, the Virgen Mary, the "Spiritul Doctor" that he takes his kids to to heal them, etc. So we have a lot of work to do with him.

The other day, we and the other missionaries in the ward helped some people clean a pig pen. All we did was shovel poop, then we dug a hole in poop-mud. But they fed us breakfast so it´s alright, its always worth it to serve others.

The last couple weeks we have been doing an English class to find new people to teach. It´s fun teaching English but the only people that show up are children that are already members of the church. The class really is just a game of "¿Como se dice...?" ("How do you say...?") and then they tell us the word that they want to learn. So hopefully something comes of this class. Hopefully somebody that we have invited shows up other than just the church primary.

Time is starting to go super fast for me, it´s wierd. Everyday passes by slowly, but the weeks and months go by fast. I feel like Elder Garrido has been my companion for a week or two, but it has been a little over a month already. What the others missioanaries say is that the more time i have been in the mission, the faster it goes by. So I gotta make every second count. Kannon: Make every second count too. If you dont prepare now, you will have to do everything that you should have done to prepare, in the first few weeks of the mission. But I know that the Lord will make you a great missionary and will help you overcome your weaknesses as He has with mine.

I love you all so much! Thank you all for the support and the letters! I hope that you guys are learning to work in unity with the missionaries of the branch. Right now I am learning how to work with the members and trying to encouraging them to do more.

Until next week!
Elder Davis
