So, second week after the big change and things feel....pretty normal. We're still working really hard to find more people to teach but, poco a poco. I still feel plenty confident that things will pick up here in a week or two. Especially since we've been in better contact with the leaders in the ward and plenty of activities are in the works to encourage the missionary work here in Arboleda.
In our efforts to find new people to teach we've obviously knocked on a LOT of doors. And you never know what's going to be behind those doors. This week I've met a lot of amazingly nice people and some...interesting people. One of the more interesting experiences was when we knocked on a door and a Jehovah's Witness burst out the door practically guns a'blazin. He had a lot of interesting things to say to us. Personally I think it went well and I thought afterwards that Grandpa Foust would be proud. We also had another similar experience with a man from the Luz del Mundo. We talked to him long enough for the hot mexican sun to turn me into a sun-dried tomato. It was worth it thought.
As far as my new companion Johnson, I think he's adjusting well to life here in Mexico. The Latinos that live with us are awesome and help out a lot. They call him 'pequeño bebe´ which always cracks me up. I tried calling him 'sport' in spanish, but it doesn't really work and everyone's always confused. Hijo mío is good enough. But things are really going great. I'm super glad to have him as a companion.
Well, that's pretty much it...OH WAIT!!!! I forgot it was the 29th.....One day more on the mission. Obviously the Lord knew I needed a little bit more time to learn some things. Oh well, we spent it well by eating Chili's :) Hopefully all of you enjoyed your wonderful extra day!!! I love you all and miss you!
