Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
I haven't written an email in a few weeks so I reckon it's about time I throw one together. These last few weeks have been busy considering that I have been training my nuevo hijo de las oficinas! His name is Elder Call he's a super awesome guy. We have been in a trio for the last couple weeks and it's been going great. The work is going well and my young padawan is learning everything at a decently fast rate and then soon enough I'll finally be out of the offices! It's weird to think that I have been here for 9 freaking months! hahah I got here with 7 months and I'm gonna leave with 7 months left. I'm honestly gonna miss it though, not so much dealing with all the stupid missionaries and their inability to save money but the ward is gonna be tough to leave. It's honestly like part of my family! This week they threw a going away party for me and I just about cried. hahaha They made me a cake and everything!!! It is gonna be sad but I mean that is just part of the experience. Im hoping we can get one last baptism here this week with Chucho but we're gonna see if it can all go smoothly. That family is the best hahah If we can get him into the waters I'm going to go crazy!
Last week we got to go to this dope place called Tapijulapa!! It's one of the Pueblo Magicos de Mexico and it was amazing. It's like this super mexican town, like a resort. We went and touristed around a bit and went looking for these awesome waterfalls! We did not find them though. hahaha We took the wrong trail for like an hour and then another wrong trail for another hour and then we were tired and mad and then went back hahaha but it was still super fun!!! There was a parade and everything it was great hahaha.
Today we went bowling and I threw a 182 so that's pretty cool. The best I've ever played hahaha but then I followed it with a 91 so I'm pretty sure it was a fluke. As Michael Scott says "a fluke is the most common fish in the sea."
Well, I love all of you and hope you're all doing good.
Merry Chirstmas weyes!
*MOM's Note - Well, what Andrew didn't mention in his email was that he was having a fun week and this past Wednesday, playing basketball in the morning, he did quite a number on his ankle as you can see in the pictures.
