I also have a new companion, his name is Elder Estrada and he´s a awesome missionary. He's from Guatemala City Guatemala and is my second comp from Guatemala. We actually arrived here in the mission together in the same group, the only difference is that he was in the Mexico City MTC for only two weeks. But he´s a great Elder and I've been learning a ton from him.
This week was good. Pretty full with meetings and stuff. Tuesday we had the changes meeting which was fun. It was very strange to see a bunch of people that I know well go home. The first of my companions went home, Elder Pluma. Also Elder Burgess and a few other Elders I know really well have gone. It´s super strange to think that they are at home right now. In these changes that are coming I have even more companions that are going home. Wednesday was pretty empty. We had a ton of appointments fall through and didn´t find many people at home.
Thursday we had a special zone conference with President Christensen. It was really good, we talked about how we can teach with more power and the spirit. He gave everyone these Gospel Picture books to help us in our lessons to keep the people engaged. We´ve been using them in our lessons, and even contacts with people in the street. They help a ton! When people have something to visualize they get so much more engaged! After the zone conference my companion and I gave a Zone meeting as well. We have a great zone that is improving a lot! Everyone is really excited to work and we´re excited to work with them!
Thursday was pretty good, we had a few lessons and one with the family that we are teaching. They are doing well, the three kids are really excited to learn, and are attending church with us. On Friday we had a "fireside chat" with President where we can bring our investigators and less actives and Jesus and Veronica (two of the children from that family) came. It was a really good night.
Saturday was good. pretty normal. It rained pretty hard and we got wet. It has been starting to rain and people have been saying that the rainy season is starting. We´ll see if it keeps it up. Sunday we had the church services and they were really good. The children from the family showed up. Its really nice to have people in church with us.
Yup, we had a good week. Great new companion and we have been seeing a little progress in our area. Everybody have a good week!
