2 weeks left until transfers!

Wow! I can´t believe it! In two weeks from now I will be with a new companion. It´s crazy to think that after being with Elder Gonzalez for 3 months he will be leaving home. While he´s finishing his mission, I´m barely starting. Time does fly by. I still remember June 10th like if it was yesterday. The nerves I had to enter the MTC and now the nerves to getting a new companion. You might be wondering why I´m nervous? Well it means that I have to stay here and show my new companion the area. There is also a possibility that I could train, which would be awesome, but of course more stress. It´s okay because it´s the only way that will help me grow spiritually. The second reason I´m nervous is because I don´t want a companion that is disobedient. I know our heavenly father has a plan for everyone and he will put me with whoever I need to be with.
Last Monday we left to Coatza, Vera Cruz to see a very special person, Elder Christofferson!! It was really cool! It was different because he didn´t really talk, he just answered questions. I got to shake his hand lol. We also had the opportunity to work in Vera Cruz with some leaders from the ward. Vera Cruz is pretty nice! Hopefully I can go there in the future.
On Thursday we had to go to Candelaria for an interview and I had the opportunity to try Iguana. It was sooo good!!! People over here eat so many strange things, but I guess that´s how they survive. I guess that´s it that happened this week.
Thanks for everyone that has been writing me! It means a lot!! Oh yeah and shout out to Cesar for sending me a package. You da real MVP! Bye

Life in El Triunfo
Well I guess life here is pretty good. It´s nice and peaceful Lol At first I thought it was too small but now every time we go to a big city I actually want to be back to our original area. My training is 12 weeks and it ends in exactly 4 weeks, so there is a possibility that I could get switched. I really doubt it though because my companion leaves back home in 4 weeks and it´s weird whenever they white wash a place. We will see what happens.
This week we met two ladies that most likely are going to get baptized. Matilde is 75 years old and her mom Lucresia who is 110 years old!!!!!!! lol They have both never been baptized. The day we met Lucresia she said she was sick and felt really bad so she asked for a blessing. As we were giving her a blessing she passed out. We thought she died for a second but she was alright. #Crazyexperience
Another crazy story is that my mission president’s parents are serving a mission here haha it’s sooo crazy. They got here last week and will be helping all around with the family history. My mission president said that whenever his parents opened their mission call they were on Skype and they saw ¨Mexico Villahermosa Mission¨ His mom instantly started to cry. That´s truly a blessing!
So I have to go but I don´t think I will be updating next week because I will be traveling to Vera Cruz to see Elder Christofferson. Bye
