Ha-ha… another crazy week full of changes! So I’m back in the other area and I’m no longer with Elder Paravato! Due to some problems in the other companionship, I was put back in the other house that I was in before with an elder from Guatemala named Elder Gonzalez. He is way cool and we are working well together.
We had a great ward conference yesterday and a surprise visit from the mission presidents which was cool. I officially have been out 16 months! Yeah I got my package! To say I loved it would be an understatement!! The ties are so cool and you definitely scored on the deluxe honey roasted cashews and the jack links beef sticks. I’ve almost eaten all of them already… ha-ha! It’s weird to think that this is my last birthday that I’m going to celebrate here in El Salvador.
Hopefully this week, we will baptize a family that has been preparing, and we are also going to baptize another lady named Maria and her son. So we are very happy here! Yesterday in our ward, the mission president told the ward that the missionaries are the full time teachers and that the members are supposed to be the full time finders! So I hope that you guys are at least trying a little to find people for the missionaries to teach! I know that the more you guys help out there, the more the members out here are going to help me! I love everyone and hope y’all have a great week!
