Sept 26

Everything is going well here. The area progression is slow, but it is definitely progressing. We just do a lot of finding. We are working hard to not just tract all the time because it is not very effective. Yes, I still have a car thank goodness. As long as I stay Spanish, I will always have a car. All the Spanish areas have cars because they are so big. Elder Johnson is from California.

Also this week, we helped redo someone's roofing. It was actually really fun. We tore off all the shingles and then put new ones on. Shingles are really heavy by the way and carrying a bunch of them up a ladder is exhausting. Not to be racist or anything, but I felt like a true Mexican working up there haha. 

As of now, we don't have any plans for where we will be watching conference, but we are going to be trying to set that all up this week! Hopefully we can watch it with some of our investigators. That would be really cool!  I am super excited for general conference. I can't believe it's happening again already. It's weird to think that this will be the third one on my mission. That's insane. 

Once again, today we don't have any plans yet. We are looking for something to do right now. Hopefully we find something to do. But yeah I'm just livin the life haha. Love you guys! Talk to you later.

¿Que tal amigos?

Week one in the Tigard has been pretty sweet! It is really weird being in a branch right after being in a ward. I forgot how much everyone relies on the missionaries to do things. There was a baptism for someone's kids the other day and guess whose responsibility it was to fill the font. The missionaries. Whose responsibility is it to make the programs? The missionaries. And best of all, whose responsibility is it to clean up after the part? The missionaries! Wooo! I'm not trying to complain or anything. I actually love it! It's just a lot different coming from a ward. Haha

Also, there are quite a few members that already knew me before I got here. I get challenged to a game of one on one almost every day by some random member that heard from other missionaries that I am decent at basketball. I got so much trash talk yesterday at church from random kids saying they are better than me. Pretty soon we might be having a branch basketball tournament so I can shut everybody up! Just kidding! We will probably be playing a lot though. 

Anyways, have a fantastic week! Don't forget to have fun! Smile! And don't do anything too stupid! Bye! Love you guys!

We have had a pretty uneventful week this week! Probably the most
exciting thing that happened this week was we got  free pizza from
Papa Johns. Not really, but not a lot happened this week! Our
investigator, Natalia, just got back from being out of town, but we
weren't able to go teach her. We had a lesson set up with her the
other day, but when we got there, she was sleeping! To make it worse,
she texted us yesterday saying that she was having some serious
problems! We are really hoping she is doing okay! We are going to try
to visit her tonight and see what's going on. Hopefully, we can help
her out with whatever it is.

Here is a little funny story! Some lady tried to set me up with her
daughter earlier this week. We were out knocking on doors as usual
when we came across this lady. We started talking to her about the
gospel and she was quick to tell us she was not interested. With most
people, this is where our conversations end, but with her it
continued. We started talking about our missions and what we do! She
expressed to us how great it was that we were doing that. Then, she
turned to me and asked how old I was. I told her I was 19. To which
she said, "That's perfect! My daughter is 19 as well! She is having a
ballet thing this Saturday if you would like to go with her! I think
you would really like her!" So on Saturday, I ended up going to a
ballet recital... Nah I'm just kidding, I told the lady that we
couldn't, but it was a really funny experience! :)

Everyone have a great week! Remember that you are awesome! Les amo!

AdiĆ³s! :)
