Hey everybody, hope everyone had a sweet 4th of July! I waved my tiny American flag in my apartment.
So this week was honestly not too exciting at all until Sunday night.. More about that later... haha :)
We've still been working with 3 awesome investigators. They all have their own challenges so we've really been working by the Spirit with them.
I bought some incense and peanut butter this week so I was super stoked for that! The incense adds a nice touch to studying and relaxing after a long day - gives you some good vibes hahaha ;)
Our Mission President got here last Monday and the mission feels different already. I haven't met him yet but people that have, say that he's super strict. He was a Area Seventy before. I'm not totally sure what to think and I've heard that there are some big rule changes coming, so all I know is that it's gonna be tough. But I know if I'm obedient, I'll be successful. I'll learn to love him, and I have to trust my Heavenly Father more!
So this passed Sunday, I got a call saying that I had changes! They told me I was going to Cañas, Guanacaste! So I spent ALL last night packing and calling converts and families. It's been a whirlwind of emotions because I really didn't want to leave - I was "born" in Alejuelita (it's like my home haha) but at the same time, I felt like I needed a fresh new start. I feel like I came and baptized the people that were prepared for me.
My companion's name is Elder Guzman and he's from El Salvador (like my trainer). I'll be sure to send a picture of him next week, but he's super short and he seems like a really sick dude. I think we're going to get along really well! :)
My area is called Cañas and it's in Guanacaste. I took a bus from San Jose and it took 4 hours to get here so that sucked but hey, I'm finally here :) The weather is dry and super flippin hot (95-100 degrees). It reminds a lot of Central or
Sorry there's not a ton to write about this week.. I'll make sure to do something crazy or worth writing-about this coming week!
Hope everyone has a killer week!
