Happy Birthday America!!!!

WOOO! 4th of July!!! I hope everything goes all good with the fireworks!!

So this week we are somewhat starting from scratch, a lot of the people we have been visiting lost interest this week. But that just means we need to keep finding and do some more work! 

So first off today, we got to go to the temple!!!!!!!! It was a pretty powerful opportunity to go today, It made it an awesome holiday! And also, We played Football!!!!!! It was pretty fun, it was kinda hard to play with some of the Latin Elders that hadn't ever played before but we figured it out. I figured out that I'm kinda outta shape.... XD I think we might start running in the mornings.....

We were able to have a good amount of lessons with investigators this week. We have a brother in the ward that accompanies us everyday after 5:00! His name is Luis Alfonzo, and is amazing. He always has some jokes to tell, and he has memorized like 50 Psalms from the Bible. He is pretty cool. 

Tuesday night and Wednesday I did an exchange with Elder Schvanavelt in Patio Bonito. It was pretty fun, especially because I had been to Patio a few times before. It was a good day, we focused on setting baptismal dates on the investigators that didn't have one, and we were able to with one sister that has attended church once! It was a good time, Elder Schvanavelt is from Idaho, and is a really good missionary, they have been killing it this transfer in their area. 

Oh yeah speaking of transfers, they come THIS SUNDAY! This transfer has gone so fast, we are already going to see if my companion Elder Karra is going to stay or go. 

Friday we were able to find a new family! It was a sister that Elder Karra had contacted a long time ago and we went back to them and we were able to talk to her and her son! They are a good family, they are very active in another church and the sister is afraid of anything that is outside of the Bible, like a lot of the people here. We have been working with a lot of the less active families this week, and it has been a good experience.

Sunday was awesome. None of our investigators were able to go, and it was kinda sad, but three of the less actives that came to church this week were able to have an interview with the bishop and we rescued three less actives this week! Two are a couple, the Grijalba family, and they are working so that they can get the rights to get sealed together in the Temple with their daughter! One is the sister Claudia Sanchez who served a mission and is really sick, she has a lot of health problems with her legs and almost always can't walk. But they are so good people. 

This week went really fast, and I have been learning a lot here in Casa Blanca, and we got some good work to do this week.
