And then there were three

Everything's great here

This week was pretty great! Things went well, quite a few interesting things happened, so I'll start from the beginning.

This week we have been working hard to find new investigators and get some good progressing investigators. We had that girl from the flia Jurado that wasn't a member and we went by and taught her a couple of days ago and we had another cita to go back, but they called and told us that their parents decided to go to another church, and they're not quite sure if they're going to go there with their parents. Overall, they told us that we shouldn't pass by, and they'll let us know when we can come by. Heart broken. But we invited them to read and pray to know what they should do, not just what their parents want them to do, so hopefully things turn out.

On Tuesday, things were all normal, then President called us and asked about two new elders that were doing whitewash and looking for a pension and living in the pension of other missionaries for the time. He sounded worried about the new missionary from Utah that lived with them, but said everything was fine. That night we found out that the office came and picked up that companionship and put them in another area until the office finds an apartment for them in their other area. And the zone begins to get smaller.

We also had consejo on Thursday, which was super good. We talked about speaking with everyone and increasing our desires to share the gospel in every moment, and it was nice. We were uplifted and excited to go train the zone. Afterwards, President told us that a different elder in our zone that was supposed to train a newbie that was going to come this next week wasn't going to be able to traing because his newbie got sick and couldn't come to the mission. There was also another missionary in the zone that was having a hard time because he doesn't speak spanish very well and his comp doesn't speak any english and he was depressed, and so President changed him to a different zone with two gringos, and the other missionary that was going to train went to be companions with the other trainer. And now, the missionary that was with this missionary that was going to train, is with us! Elder Salgado from Cordoba. He already finishes his mission, he goes home on Friday, so it's just a short time, but we'0re with him! It's going well, we're having a good time.

The rest of the week was pretty normal, we couldn't find John and Florencia that had a baptismal date, we think they went out of town, and so they couldn't come to church, but we've been finding some good people, so things are looking up! I love you all thanks for the support!
