How are my fans doing this week?
This week has been so different than the last 3 months here in Frontera! hahaha Being here with my new comp Elder Vasquez has been interesting I can tell you that. He really likes comic books and naps. hahahaha He's a pretty cool guy though! This week I've seen my spanish improve more than it did in my first 2 cambios combined. It's so weird something just like clicked and now I know everything everyone says and it is super easy to talk to people now. hahaha Talk about the gift of tongues right there. This last week we were trying to find some more people to teach. Let me tell you it was pretty annoying. There were a couple days that we had citas set for the entire day until like 9 and then absolutely no one was home lol. One day we finished super early and didn't know what to do so we went to a members house. They told us that the next couple of weeks are going to be hard to find and teach people. Everyone is partying or no one is home. It's crazy, like every night there is a ginormous crowd following the Virgin Guadalupe down the street. hahaha That's not the best thing for missionary work hahaha. No worries, that only happened for about 2 days and then we found some awesome people! One of our investigators right now is named Alexis and he is a freaking awesome kid. I would call him a "golden investigator" hahaha He loves reading the Book of Mormon and learning more and more. He thinks the church is the coolest thing ever! He will probably be baptized next week which will be sick!
It has rained everyday this week which has made walking around not that fun but you gotta do what you gotta do! I think I'm just gonna throw away my paraguas because it doesn't help at all with the rain. The rain goes completely sideways so it's pointless! hahaha
I had to speak in church yesterday for the first time and I was suuuper nervous at first because I'm not one for talks. hahaha The Bishop asked us to just speak on the obra misional which is such an easy topic because that's what we do every freaking day. I thought it went pretty dang good and a bunch of members came up and told me like "Wow it's so nice that you can actually speak now" hahahaha Andrew-1 Mexicans-0.
Something really funny this week- We were down by the river looking at the sunset and everything and this wasted guy came up right next to us and whips it out and starts taking a pee right by us hahahaha. We were just standing there and he said "No manches guay el sol es bien grande" hahahahaha I always love talking to drunk guys! hahaha. They make no sense at all.
Well. that's all I've got. This week we have zone conference which should be dope because of Christmas. So pumped only like two more weeks to call home!
Love you all and have a good week!
