Time flying by with ups and downs

Hello everyone! 

Time seems like it is flying by. We already have two weeks in this change and it doesn't feel like it. Elder Estrada and I have been working hard. I`m so thankful for my comp, I've been learning a ton from him and we've been hitting it hard. 
This week we've found 6 new investigators which is a huge step in the right direction. We've just been talking to everyone in the street, and from that we've found some really good investigators. There are some that are kind of interesting, and there is one couple that we found that are really interested. Their names are Andrea and Renato and they know a ton about the bible. They've been Christianos, and right now they are studying with Jehovah Witnesses but they`re super nice. Many times if someone is kind of entrenched in their beliefs they just try to contend but they are super nice and actually listen. They fed us dinner in the second lesson as well haha. We`re really excited to work with them. 
The Zone
With the family that we've been teaching, the family Mejia Solar we had a really cool Family Home Evening with them. We watched the restoration movie and they really liked it. We also tried to put baptismal dates but they said that they don`t feel ready to put a date yet. It was pretty frustrating because many of them have already received answers about whether the church is true. It was alright though, and we`re going to continue working with them this week. On Wednesday we also have interchanges with Elder Estes and Elder Maxfield which was fun. Its always a really interesting experience to work with someone other than your companion for a day, and its also cool to teach with someone else.
  • That's a lot of pork!
So on Sunday we didn't have any investigators in church. It was a little frustrating, especially because the Hermanas had 7 investigators that went to church. The Gospel Principles class was full of their Investiagators and less actives. We`re hoping that this next Sunday we see more fruits from all the new investigators that we have.

Also it`s kind of strange, but in almost exactly one year from now I`ll be finishing my mission. Its really weird to think that, it doesn't feel like I have that much time!

Well, I love you all and hope you have a good week!
