Dear Family,
its pretty warm outside.... this week we found alot of people to teach. i am supprised how fast i am learning spanish. transfer calls were this morning. elder jones is getting transfered to fort worth and i am staying in lewisville. my new companions name is elder galvez. we are not exchanging till wednesday. i will be the jr. companion. elder galvez is from peru and he speaks alright english.
so besides all of the heat, this week we taught 10 lessons. we are very consistant. we are teaching this man named emilio and he thinks its very funny to make fun of me and laugh. but its ok because i know he is just joking around. he is not progressing but he loves learning and talking with us. we are teaching another man who has a desire to be baptised. his name is raul. he is progressing and reading the book of mormon and praying. he had a baptism date but we had to bump it back. Emilia, she is a jehovah's witness. she loves learning but will not come to church. she prays beautifully. the rodriquez family is sweet. i love them. but the daughters boyfriend is a penacostal. ya its kinda weird. and finally olivia reyes. she is from honduras. ya she is a golden investigator. enough said.
so besides all of the heat i am doing very well. i love the mission and i am learning alot. this weeks sweet and crazy times. elder erickson (an elder in our district) got hit by a car and nothing happened to him. i salvaged his bike and took off all the parts that were good. when i was taking the bike apart it was mangled and beat up. he is lucky to be alive. ya we get yelled at all of the time. sometimes good most of the time good. but it is funny that some people swear at us. i love it. our branch covers three stakes. and two of the stakes are outside of our mission. so we can not go to the other mission to eat. so that leaves us with about 5 members in our area. its kinda hard but o well. not my will but the lord's. i am going on a beans and rice eating spree. because they are cheap and i love them to death.
