Week Ten: Making a Branch a Ward

Howdy people,

This was a great week! We taught a ton of lessons and met a ton of new investigators.  E Leavitt has been here since May and he said that we've never had so much success or had so many great investigators so close to baptism.   His last two companions went home right after their time in Cartavio so E Leavitt is just glad to have someone who isn't "trunky" (Ready to pack their trunk and go home).

A crazy lady this week told us about a red demon that offered her meat and then summoned a small horse from her mouth.  That inspired E Leavitt and I to start a quote wall; so that is keeping us entertained.

Our branch is really cool.  They aren't quite a ward because they need more priesthood holders but we have around 100 people in attendance every week.  Right now, they really just don't know how to help us.  I guess that they just never have. But E Leavitt and I are turning them around. We made a ward mission plan, gave talks on missionary work, we are working with the leaders in Ward Council, and we're really just slapping them into shape.

Today I went to Trujillo for pday.........civilization.  We went to a mall. A mall. They were playing xmas music, I ate Pizza Hut, it was almost America.

Spanish update: I understand anyone who is not crazy or a mumbler in about 85% of what they say and I can say whatever I want but maybe not in the best format but its improving quick.

Random thought of a google-less missionary: Why are copy machines so big if my printer can do copies among many other tasks?

Caio for now,
