Emergency changes, still in LaUnion
Well right now it's been really tough. I haven't had anyone really who wants to progress. I have 4 people progressing right now. Elizabeth, Melissa, Manuel, and Maria. Elizabeth came to church this last week and really enjoyed it and also is trying to make new friends in the church. I hooked her up with a church member because he secretly likes her and I took him with me to visit her. He took her to church and everything and they invited us to dinner and it was so funny. She is scheduled to be baptized the 29. I hope she gets to the date. We are trying to focus on more member help to establish a friendship between them and our investigators. Melissa's boyfriend takes her to church so she doesn't have much problems. She just really needs to have the desire to be baptized. We really haven't received a yes from yet. Manuel and Maria, they need to marry. They know that they need to marry before baptism and also they need to attend church. This week we had emergency changes so I received a new companion. His name is Elder Quevedo. He's really cool. Calm, hard worker, smart, yeah its all fine. We've gone 4 weeks without a single investigator in the church but this past sunday we had two and we are going share the gospel with these two. He likes basketball more than soccer and I think it's ironic lol. Today we had a zone pday and we played with water and stuff. It was alright. I didn't really want to get wet cause I didn't have extra clothes but they made me so yeah. I have pictures but my camera died and I'm not in La Union right now. This week we had a trip to the temple with all of our investigators. Almost no one went from our area but oh well, maybe next time. I took some cool photos of the temple and with Elder Adams and I, he's my brother in the mission. I found a family from sensuntepeque there so I took a picture with them. It was a good experience. Of course I am still here in La Union. It has gotten hotter and hotter as the days go on. People think that in the nights is when things cool down but no not here. It gets hotter. This past week I practically couldn't sleep at night it's been so hot but during the day it's fine for me because my body has adjusted itself. With this emergency change that happened I think Im going to stay in La Union for another change because he will only have like 2 weeks to know the area. That will make 5 changes here, waaaaay too much time in one area lol. Specially in La Union. I've gotten a little baggy since I'm on my way down hill now lol but it only makes me want to work harder because I have goals to reach before the mission is done. Changes are the 19 of August. I need you to go and find El Salvador Sign Language websites and send me the PDF to print out. My comp is helping me learn sign language in case we meet a mute person. Mom I am proud of you. Usually its the parent that says that but really I am. I always look at the directory of the our ward and always see that you are Relief Society President and I think that you have grown a lot from when we both once were. Since I was like 7 to now things have change.
