This week we had interchanges with the zone leaders. I went with Elder Massey in his area in Quezada. It was a really good time. We were able to teach a lot of lessons. Something that he is all about is teaching really simple short lessons, We don't need to spend 45 minutes explaining every concept of the restoration. We can just give really simple lessons with a couple principles to invite the spirit and teach simple truths. And also sometimes people get bored if you try to teach a lot. haha It was a really good day, even though I got a little sunburned.
The next day we went to immigration (I never thought I would go back there again) haha. My companion this time had to go take out his residency. haha.
A family that the other elders are teaching were getting married and roasted a pig for the wedding, But we were there when they killed the pig...... It was a little terrifying. They tied up the pig and smacked it on the head with a hammer to knock it unconscious, then they slit its throat open so it would bleed out and die...But i bet it was delicious at the wedding! The elders also moved out of our house this week, so now there is a little more peace. haha And we have been able to clean up the house a lot more.
This week has been a little rough, because we have been dropping a ton of our investigators because no one was progressing. So this week we will have to work hard to find basically a new teaching pool. But there are always people ready to hear our message.
This morning we also had the opportunity to do some service. We helped these people at a tortilleria carry in their mountain of firewood. Fun stuff!
Also it is now August! Wow time flies. Have a great week!
