Note from Mom - Bonus Week! He actually sent photos!!!!
So, this week was good. We had Consejo de lideres, so that was fun. I got to see our old Ciudad Nueva zone. All of that zone are either leaders or home.
We also got permission to baptize Kevin!!! His mom said that she wasn`t going to sign anything, though, so we will have the aunt sign it in her place. She told him to get baptized, but that she wasn`t going to sign anything.
We should finish this month with 2 to 3 baptisms. That should be good. I also asked President if I could finish in the area where I am. I am hoping that he gives me my wish. I will go wherever in changes next week, but I would love to finish here. It would be nice.
This week was sort of interesting, in the sense that nothing really happened. We were contacting and had a kid sit down next to us and start putting marijuana in bags, which was interesting. Not a meter from me. That was funny to see the difference in the culture. Also, I thought about saying something, but bit my tongue. I DO know how to stop talking, contrary to popular belief, I just choose not to most times.
And I have a goal with my comp....1000 contacts starting today. I have to finish before I leave. This should be interesting. I have to do 21 a day. I think I am going to get it. I am positive I am going to get it. I have a meter drawn in the house to measure and everything. Super dopeness.
Also, I found Connor Bills in a manual they give us.
That`s pretty much it
I love you all

|Soap Carving of a tutle. The inspiration came from the second to last photo of the week. He generously gave this carving to the man who carved that piece. Zach's comment is that this is "super dope."|
