(I'm so sorry for that...) Well, this week went fast and overall pretty well. We're working hard and finding more people every week. Now the key is to find people who are truly interested and want to come to church! We work hard, we find, we teach, and we commit, but Sunday morning comes and pocos investigators make it. It has definitely been our focus these past week. It's a little disheartening to work so hard during the week and be disappointed during the services on Sunday. HOWEVER! YA NO MÂS!! We have great lessons, great experiences and I know with diligence and lots of patience, we will see the fruits of our labors someday. Working hard, planting seeds. Sometimes it's pretty easy to be discouraged. Especially when I'm training and can't really blame Elder Johnson because he's pretty great at everything (if anyone tells him that I will find you). Normally I'm pretty optimistic but missions are hard and there's this guy called Sàtanas that really doesn't like anything we're doing here. My optimism has been tried like never before and I still have a long way to go in Mexico (and in life in general) so I'll just have to fight harder than ever.
Other than that our only truly interesting and super-crazy busy day was Saturday. In the morning we taught a group of youth (youthz...) a bit about missionary work and what they could do to prepare now. It was a stake youth activity where the youth recieved mission calls and trained at the MTC where we were their teachers. Our entire zone went and we each had our own class of about 30. It went super well and I loved teaching them. After that, we had our english class but all the rooms were taken for the activity so we had our class outside in the shade. We had to cancel last week for conference and didn't want to kill the whole english class idea before it really got going. Everyone seemed to like it and we got another reference this week so they're really paying off! After a busy morning, we had an afternoon/night full of lessons. It was a tiring, but incredibly rewarding day.
Anyways...besides burning away into nothingness everyday in the hot, mexican sun, things are going good. I love you all and miss you this much! (I promise it's a lot). Hopefully you all have an amazing week and enjoy life without an eternal sunburn!
