April 13, 2015 Coatza

Hey guys,
This week was kinda a tough one for me. One of the harder ones that Ive had here on this misson. We had to travel up to Cuichapa so that my companion would be able to get to know the area for himself so we spent all of saturday and sunday up there. Apart from that we had a funny rundown with an old lady that didnt know how old she was and I told you a little bt more about that one in the recording. She broke her wrist a little while ago and her name is Dolores. Shes hilarous and reminds me a lot of grandpa reese hahaha. But shes great and has a great spririt about her. We hope to get her baptized soon. Its just a matter of making her or rather allowing her to understand that she needs God in her life. I hope that shell be able to get baptized soon... the only problem though is that she is basically deaf and cant hear us It makes it even harder with our accents that we have as americans. She almost cant understand what we say. We are hoping that things will turn out for the better though =) Wish us luck this week. 
Kinda stressful week though so I didnt really have that much to say. We had a alot of things going on that needed to happen. Sorry if its so little and my messages are cut short, I just didnt really have that much time to make recordings this week. Ill make more this week. =)
Love you guys,
Kia Kaha!

Here they come guys! My companion had transfers today and we had to travel to coatza to get my new one. My new companion is Elder Caven. Hes from Ceder City and has the same amount of time as I do. Hes actually from my generation. I was in Deportiva when he got here because he was in Boise waiting for his visa to go through. Everything's good, and I think it'll be a better transfer for me. Too soon to judge, but things are fine I guess. Im junior comp again... why? 
ANyways, Love you guys and I hope you have an awesome week =) 
Kia Kaha!

The last one =) Hope you guys have a great week =) I think the pictures that I sent yesterday were explained. The statue was just a fun picture. The statue is kinda awkwardly placed in the middle of town so we decided to take advantage of that and snag a quick selfie of it. haha. The Holy Week, or Semana Santa, is passing by this week which is basically the commemoration of the virgen guadalupe... so that explains the parade and the screaming people. Kinda nuts, but youd know what Im talkin about if you were here... haha 
Love you guys =)
Kia Kaha!
