“Gooooood Afternooon to the best family on my blog”-FouseyTube

Yeah as you can see I kind of miss YouTube lol but it's alright. It feels good knowing that I can actually survive without a phone and social media. Talking about phones, I actually get to carry one. Since I became senior companion they gave me this old rusty 1820 Nokia Phone. It's nice because I get to talk to the members from our branch haha jk its kind of useless lol.
This week was fun. Although most of our appointments fell through, we were able to find 5 new investigators. They look like they really want to change their lives so that's a good sign. Throughout this week I asked myself why so many appointments would fall? I'm 100% obedient so why aren't we having success? I realized that I shouldn't stress out because this is the Lords mission. I'm serving his mission so he has everything planned out. Success isn't measured by how many lessons we taught! This week I was thinking a lot about this and I took this more about a life lesson. It taught me that no matter how hard you work, sometimes it´s not going to turn out how you expect it. It also doesn't mean that you should just give up. We will continue to work because I know the lord is preparing his children. I am learning a lot so by the time I am transferred to another area I will be a beast lol!

We walked alooooot this week! Although "El Triunfo" is small, it can feel huge if you walk the same streets over and over and over again for 9 hours every day.
It's nice having a companion that knows English. I get to talk in English and Spanish all day. We can also talk about how we miss Walmart and target lol. Yeah, our area is so small we only have a "Monterrey". It's basically 1/3 the size of a dollar tree. It´s cool though, it´s actually fun shopping in Mexico. Well I hope you guys have an awesome week. You know, will be out here putting in work like always. I´ll talk to you guys later!

First week with the new companion

Well it's officially been one week with my new compaƱero. His name is Elder Velazquez and has 8 months on his mission. He's cool because I can speak with him in English because he's also from the US. The only problem is that he doesn't really speak Spanish (yes he's Mexican) so I have to talk most of the lesson, which is pretty fun. There are some things that I'm going to help him improve so he can become a better missionary.

Sooo these last a couple of weeks many people have been getting sick. There's this thing going around called "chiconcuya" and it's pretty bad lol. I just hope I don't get sick. They say that the people from Honduras are bringing it over.

Last week whenever I was in Emiliano Zapata waiting for my new companion I left my suit case in the church and someone stole it. Yeah it sucks because I had to put all my things in a plastic bag. They just stole my suit case but left my suit, shoes, etc. jaja Yeah it was a rough week but I'm glad it's over. This was officially the fastest week on my mission. I guess it's true when others told me that the training usually feels the longest. Well I have to go, bye
