New Elders and P-day

This week was pretty good. So what happened is we lost Elder Moràn, got a new elder, Elder Rodriguez, and got put together with two other elders so now our district is 6 people. The two new elders are Elder Eskelson and Elder Centeno. Elder Eskelson is our district leader and he's awesome! I don't remember exactly where he's from but he's a gringo. He's really cool and jokes around with us which is nice because our district before was really unified and there's elders in the mission that really just push out the hermanas and don't interact with them at all. So I'm happy that we still have this.

We had our zone conference this week and it was really good. Hermana Watts talked to us about language study and really pushed the latinos to learn English. Elder Eskelson and I are going to start an English class to try and find new investigators. We also learned about the importance of the Book of Mormon in our teaching and we also watched the talk by Elder Uchtdorf again.

This week was a lot better with the work. We found a family that looks really promising. We're really excited for it and hope that it works out!

On P-day`s everyone goes to Walmart if it's close to the area and we have permission to go because our area is really close. Well this morning with the emergency transfers and everything there were some new people and one of them was my district leader from the 6 weeks in the CCM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Elder Vanisi!!!!!!! I was super excited to see him because I've only seen one other person from my district in my time her in the mission and that was Elder Schindler when my papers were bad and had to go in. He was serving in Peten which is an area up north in Guatemala. It's where almost everyone wants to go. He said it was really beautiful. There are four areas outside of the capital and the main three are Coban, Peten, and Polochik. Almost everyone wants to go to Peten because it's away and Polochik because it's where they speak the other dialect. I hope I'm able to go to Peten but we'll see what happens. We were also able to see Elder Moràn because he's just in the area over so it was great to see him too! Yeah today was a pretty good P-day.

Hope everything's going great!!! Love you all a ton!! Happy Birthday to Tracy and Aubrey!!!!!!!!

Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
