Elder Oaks

Hey everyone, how's it going? I hope that everyone is well. We had a pretty normal week other than Elder Oaks was here! It was awesome! Elder Clayton, Elder Valenzuela (Presidency of Area), and Elder Walker (Area 70) also were there. I'll get to that in a bit.

Monday was a tough night, we had almost all of our appointments fall through. Tuesday was good, we found a bunch of new investigators, however we also dropped most of them later on in the week because they liked that we visited them but didn't want anything other than that. That evening we also visited Carmen and Guadelupe who were doing great as normal. On Wednesday we had exchanges with Elder Ramos, our district leader. I was in Xicotencatl with him and we had a good day. We ate with a member who works on the train, that was interesting to talk with him about trains. We also had the ward mission correlation meeting which went well, not a whole bunch of members showed up but oh well.

On Thursday in the morning we went to Tlaxcala to donate blood because there was a member that needed it, but I had a little cold so they sent me away :(. After that we went to eat and then ended the exchanges. That day we visited a good amount of people. On Friday we visited a bunch of members and a fair amount of investigators. Also for the meeting we had with Elder Oaks, the elders from Zacatlán came to our house to stay the night so that they could be on time to the meeting in Puebla. They sent us Elder Dominguez and Elder Pastor. It was really cool to be with him again. I had my two mission sons in my house haha! So Friday in the morning we left at 5 to get to Puebla at 7 to take a bus to a stake center in the other mission. So like I said, we were the two missions in Puebla, and Elder Oaks, Elder Whitney Clayton of the presidency of the 70, Elder Valenzuela of the seventy, and Elder Walker an area 70. It was a pretty sweet meeting. We learned a lot. Elder Oaks and his wife are amazing. They taught us a bunch about how to teach, about how to work with members, Elder Clayton taught about commitments. Elder Oaks also took questions. It was a great morning to be a missionary in Puebla.

On Sunday we had a good day. I always enjoy playing piano in church even if I don't play perfectly. We didn't have any investigators in church though. It was a bummer especially because we were expecting quite a few. We're going to be working on that this week. Well, I hope that everyone has a great week! Adiós!
