Last Week of the Transfer

Hello everyone. I hope that you all had a good week. As always we`re doing well. 

This week was pretty normal. The only things out of the ordinary were that we had exchanges with the Assistants and that we had the opportunity to call home yesterday on Sunday. So no Tuesday we had exchanges with the assistants, I went to their area in a ward that`s called Alpha and we worked there on Tuesday. It was a really good exchange, I was with Elder Suarez who is a great missionary! Really upbeat and talkative. We also ate lunch with the Secretaries, and right now there are 6 secretaries because they are training the new ones for the changes. So one family fed 8 missionaries at one time. It was a lot of food. The offices are kind of full right now haha.

 On Wednesday we had our district meetings, and a few appointments. We finally met with a less active member who works a lot and we find out that he stopped going to church for a little argument with his family who are also his neighbors about where he should park his car. It kind of blows my mind that people stop going to church for tiny little things. There is probably more to it, but at the end of the day he isn't active in the church is missing out on many blessings. 

Wednesday the assistants also called us to let us know that Elder Carrillo is going to train a new missionary this change! He`s really excited and ready to receive a brand new missionary from the MTC. That also means that I will be getting a new companion and will be in Aquiles Serdan for another change. I`m excited to be able to work here for another change to work to improve the area even more.

Thursday was a good day, we had a few lessons. Friday Elder Carrillo had a meeting with all the trainers and the assistants asked me and Elder Castillo to give a meeting for all of their companions. It went well, we talked about how we can use Preach my Gospel to help our investigators progress. Friday we had a lesson with the family we are teaching and it went well. They didn't accept a baptismal date yet but we`re working with them! Saturday was really normal, not a lot happened. A few lessons with less actives and members. We also found out the changes and there are only 4 people that have transfers in all of the zone.

Sunday was great. The Hermanas had a baptism of one of their investigators and I guess somehow the investigator knew Pres. Christensen and asked him to baptize her. So Pres. Christensen attended our church and after the services he baptized Hna. Vicky. It was a really good experience and two of our investigators were there to see the baptism. They liked it a lot. Also I spoke to my family on Sunday and it was great! Love those guys!
