This week was a good one. We didn't have as much success as I would have liked but we are still working hard.
The investigators are good. It is always hard to get them to come to church when there is rain because even the members don't go when it is raining. It was tough because it has been pretty ugly weather this week. I sometimes feel like the weather is working against us.
My companion is good. We get a along well so not much to complain about. He's a good guy and I am training him well. Training is coming to an end. December 2nd are transfers and he will no longer be the new guy in the mission field.
Each week we teach gospel principles. It's for new members and I teach it alone most of the time since my companion is still working on his spanish. He is getting a lot better though. It's a good class and I have learned how to teach a class so it has been a good experience for me.
I got the package you all sent and Allan and Marco say thank you. For Christmas I am in need of deodorant and 2 long sleeved shirts. I sent my shirts to be taken in and the cut off the sleeves. Other than that I don't really need anything. Maybe a new pair of black shorts for p-day. I only have one pair and could probably use another pair. I don't think it is possible but I would love a Dr. Pepper haha oh and maybe some wheat thins, I miss those a lot. Other than that I am great.
I'm glad all is well with everyone at home. I was in Asunción today because my companion had to fill out some papers for his visa. I forgot to grab my camera when we left. The computers here are bad as well so I probably wouldn't have been able to send them anyway. I will do my best for next week.
I hadn't heard of the new church announcement. Don't worry about what people are saying, that is something I have learned especially being here. It seems like everyone is against us so we need to be strong and remember God is always with us. Especially when we are going through hard times. Helaman 5:12 is a scripture I love a lot that I think will help you. We have to build our house upon the rock of Christ and be strong. Remember the wise man built his house upon the rock and the foolish man build his house upon the sand and the rain washed it away. Stay faithful and know I am always praying for you every morning and night.
I love you
