A Lot of Changes

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a happy new year. Kind of weird that it is 2015. Didn't really feel much like a new year here, being pretty warm and we also didn't stay up until midnight on new years. Ha ha, slept through it, but that's fine with me. 

Dominos in Mexico!
We've had a pretty interesting week, we found out who has transfers and who is going to stay. So in my district it seems like everyone has changes. My companion Elder Garrido, and the two other Elders Mendoza and Burgess have changes. So I`m the only one that's staying of the Elders in this District and in the ward as well. I`m going to get a new companion and we`re going to have two new Zone Leaders. Also two of the Hermanas are leaving too. Hna. Jensen and Ramirez are leaving, and Hna. Meek is going to be training a new misionera. Ramirez and Mendoza are also going to train but are going to different areas. So we basically have a completely new district, but it will be good. I`ll be here in Resurgimientos for at least one more transfer which is fine by me. It will be interesting to see how things work our with so many new missionaries here.

So this week was alright in terms of work. We are still struggling to find new investigators and get the ones we have progressing. We found out a few days ago that Javier, our investigator that actually has real potential is going on vacation with his family for about a month. So it`ll be a while until we see him again. 

We had a good New Years, ate a ton of food again, but really good food. Posole, Chiles en Nogada, a really good chicken dish, and one member gave us Doctor Pepper! Doctor Pepper almost doesn't exist in Mexico, so that was a treat. A break from Coke haha.

The rest of the week was pretty normal, except for yesterday with the three other Elders saying goodbye to everyone. A lot of people were kind of sad, we had a visit with a member that we`ve been working with a lot that was less active and now is preparing to enter the temple with his wife that was very good. He started crying a little when he thanked us for working with him and not giving up on him. He`s such a boss, we've seen such a great change in him, at first he would accept our visits but wasn't really involved, but he started to read again and go with his wife when she taught early morning seminary. He started coming to church again, and he has such a strong testimony now. One Sunday he said he just woke up with a desire to attend church. He`s experienced a great change of heart, and it has been amazing to see. I can`t wait for him to get sealed to his wife in the temple.

So yeah, tomorrow we go to cambios to see who goes where, and who will be the new people in the district. It`ll be fun. Well, I hope you all have a good week, and enjoy getting back to school and work and stuff. Hasta próxima semana!
